Do you get dizzy/vertigo?
I was just wondering if anyone out there who has t-spine issues, and suffers from muscle spasms, ever had balance issues?
I have the "bonus" if you can call it that, of also have a herniated c5/c6.
I find that when I "forget" the physio's advice and "not look up and raise my hands above my head"....i.e. when I have to reach for drugs at work on a higher shelf above my head....change a lightbulb in a ceiling fixture....I tilt my head/neck back in a certain angle apparently, and it puts pressure down the t-spine.....spasms everything out, and if I so much as try to look up afterwards, the room starts spinning.
If I have the chance to remedy, and do heat and massage, it seems to help alleviate the dizziness, so I now try not to have a panic attack about the room moving, but it's freaking scary!!!
