Dizziness caused by C5 herniated disc?
Has anyone experienced dizziness caused by C5 herniated disc? I discovered 3 weeks ago that I have a bulging herniated C5 disc with involvement from C4 and C6. The herniated disc is compressing my spinal cord resulting in shoulder pain and upper arm numbness with decreased mobility. My doctor is sure that surgery is the only cure for me, I had an epidural injection 3 days ago and it has helped relieve the neck pain but not the arm weakness. I have been suffering from dizziness prior to this diagnosis, went to an ENT and had all the tests for equilibrium problems with no positive results for disease (good) but also no idea as to cause of dizziness. It seems worse the past week. Just curious to find out if anyone else has/had this problem.
