I just turned 20 years old a month ago. I recently ended a Worker's Comp case where i had injured my lumbar (herniated disc l4-l5.) They also diagnosed me with mild DDD and have been having neck pain that radiates down my arms. Recently this neck pain has gotten worse and i've developed some ringing in my ears and this awful vertigo. When i walk i feel like i'm starting to teeter-totter. Even typing this i'm feeling like i'm swaying. I also have a constant dull headache.
Is this normal for a herniated cervical disc (i'm guessing that's the cause for the neck/arm pain,) or should i go to the ER and figured out what the heck it is? The neck pain has been for 6 months and the vertigo/ringing has been less than a week. I'm at a loss and also don't have insurance where i'm at currently so doctor visits are expensive. I am also having sensitivity to light and one eye is achey.
Any help or thoughts would be great as i have severe anxiety and have been trying not to freak out
