I too have bad c6-7 protrusion- had symptoms of dizziness 6-7 years ago .\
took care of them through traction and exercises.
now i am worried because my symptoms of dizziness are back and are worse.
It also feels like the disc is actually pushing on the back of my pharynx-(throat)
maybe this is just from inflammation?
can anyone help?
has anyone else had this?
Disorders of equilibrium can be produced by disorders that affect vestibular pathways, the cerebellum, or sensory pathways in the spinal cord or peripheral nerves.
I think you should be seeing a neurologist at the earliest and get imaging study done to see for the status of Cervical Spine and also to see if there is any vascular compromise is present.
Any vascular compromise due to spinal disc pathology could cause symptoms of dizziness.
Keep me informed if you have any queries.
