A ligament problem???

This is my 1st post.
For about a year and a half I have been having this anxious, dizzy feeling. And it seems to be coming from my neck. Symptoms come when my neck is tense, stretched or exercised lightly. My Doctors are shrugging their shoulders - they don't get it. I have some herniations & Stenosis in my neck (Past Whiplash injury and poor posture on computer) - but my dr.s don't seem too concerned.
I had severe pain in my neck before all of this- but PT took away most of it! But I might have overdone it on the stretching, & exercises because during my training I became dizzy.
I think Chiropractic Adjustments could have done some damage too.
So anyway, this is very frustrating, but could I have damaged my ligaments in my neck? Ligament damage sounds right for some reason. But how do I know? Do MRIs show that??

Thank you for any advice!!!!


  • I hope you can find a Dr. that will help with this. I know when I had dizziness I went right to the ER and got checked out if this is a new symptom for you. I hope you get a complete physical and blood work to check out what's causing the dizziness. You need to see a Dr. Take care and keep us posted. Charry
