Can a bulging or herniated disc cause dizziness?


  • I'm not sure if your dizziness is coming from your cervical region or not. You need to make sure whoever is treating you is aware of the condition. Muscle spasms can tighten so much they cause dizziness and you may want to look into cervical vertigo. But my best advice is if it severe is to have it checked with a doctor. There are so many things can cause dizziness and i would hate to lead you down the wrong path when it may be a unrelated symptom.

    tamtam is right, the disc problem itself should not be causing any dizziness. That should be coming from some other problem. It could be very minor or not, try to keep track when you do get this. Is it after medications? after eating? are you not eating enough, etc?
    I doubt if there is anyone that does not experience dizziness from time to time, but you do need to understand where that is coming from.
