that muscle, sternocleidomastoid muscle, in your neck is related to dizziness and can cause it. I have a book describing all the muscles in the neck that can effect your head and all sorts of things. They are trigger points. I think this is what is causing all your problems. I have had that too there weird dizziness...comes and goes.,,thankfully hasn't happend in over a year. Try massaging your neck or go to a physical therapist. I am gunna go to one too. Describe what your dizziness is like.
hope you feel better.
The dizziness feels like it is about 25% motion sickness, and 75% feeling like you cannot get/align your balance. It just feels like you are not "balanced" or can walk in a straight line without really coordinating yourself.
The muscle in back of neck area (not sure which one) also sometimes hurts. The neck will also act like it has a burning sensation (like when exercising) - for instance, sitting right now, typing this, having sat for about 2 hours, it feels like I am doing reps on the back muscles of my neck while the left side (I think sternocleidomastoid) is tightened up.
If anyone has any websites or youtube videos on how to massage or correct the neck I would be all ears, especially if it is specific to this circumstance.
Hi I have the same situation happening now and I figure an over extension of my neck caused a pinched nerve which triggered it all. the burning in my shoulder, n numbness in my right hand, sever dizzy spells when turning my head to eater side and if I look down too fast. I feel so sick all the time just like you said. As if I'm off balance and leaning. I went to a chiropractor yeaterday and had X-rays of my next he will read them tomarrow at 10. Then I'm asking him to refer me to a neuro specialist for hopes of getting an MRI
This ***** bit the chiropractor adjust my next and said DON'T READ IN BED, sleep on a pillow or hdthe head in any forward position as that will make it worse. Rest and lay flat with head flat or slighty leaning backward about an inch or two lower than the body.
what did it end up being..i got same problem i been suffering 3 months they cant find problem
Follow up to my original post above - its been a while, but within 6 months of my writing this I was able to get rid of the problem. It did prove to be the neck muscles. I solved it with chiro treatment (for 2 months), good sleep habits (to facilitate neck muscles resting and rejuvenating), getting better pillows (Grand Embrace from Pacific Coast Down), and some additional treatments that I can PM if you would like. Thanks for the responses on here - you were all right!
