Please help diagnose my mother..

My mother has been diagnosed with Cervical Spondylosis. But she has been experiencing symptoms that generally do not match that of Cervical Spondylosis.

My mother has a generally low Blood Pressure as normal. But at times Blood pressure gets very high and she gets tingling in the head which proceeds to whole upper body, and a burning sensation in the upper body and great dizziness. Also her hands and feet get red. A general fatigue is also experienced.
At times of these attacks (I suppose I can call them attacks) her Blood pressure changes very suddenly from 90/70 to 170/80.
When she feels well, her B.P. comes back to normal but when feels the symptoms mentioned above, her B.P is very high.
Why these symptoms are occuring and do they belong to Cervical Spondylosis? I need help please..
Doctors have not been able to diagnose her well..

Here is the report of Cervical Spondylosis

    You need to consult additional licensed physicians.

    We can not assist in that fashion. I do hope that you seek appropriate help, and she can make progress towards getting her problems resolved.

    Welcome to Spine Health and I hope you find answers
    with your physicians (maybe some new ones)?

    Welcome to Spine-Health  Please read the linked guidelines!!

  • I understand that this is just a forum and I am not in anyway relying on answers on this forum to deal with my mother's medical condition. I am finding new doctors and they would be the only source of my mother's medical aid. I would just simply like to know if Cervical Spondylosis shows these type of symptoms or not. Thank you for your time and concern.

    Thank you for replies. That page is really helpful, almost 90% of the symptoms are that of Cervical Spondylosis.
    But one thing that I still don't understand is that why her blood pressure rises to such dangerous levels... It only rises when she's feeling dizziness spells and goes down as soon as the dizziness goes away..

    @Alexhurting Thank you for your reply :)

  • But the thing is, she doesn't experience neck pain. She only experiences it from keeping the neck straight for hours.
    I read in that article gave by Metalneck, it is written that only 50% of the patients of this condition experience pain, rest don't. So I suppose my mother is in in the other 50%.
