Trying to keep this short here. The title says it all. I'll give you a clear cut example: I was at a concert event on Saturday. I went to sit down and was eye level with the stage. I could not keep my head up for more than 15 seconds without feeling some sort of lightheadedness/dizziness and had to move my head around to shake it off. I'm perfectly fine when I stand though. Another example, I was at a baseball game in the second level up and felt the same way. If I tried to look up, I'd get some lightheadedness/dizziness. Ended up watching from the concessions standing up, when it was comfortable.
On top of this, I get tinnitus (ringing in ears) when sitting down mostly. Also, if I turn my head to the right, I have pain that radiates down the neck into the back shouldblade on the right. Xrays I have had done showed poor posture as well as slight dis degenartion at C5. Doctor sent me to PT, which I felt only made things worse. Another doctor suggested it was muscular related, especially since my right eye turns red from time to time. No MRIs have been done, yet.
I've tried chiropractor as well. While I got temporary relief, it's not the answer, and he suggested it was because my head was off my atlas. I'm not a fan of quackery any more. I want to avoid surgery if possible. Does anyone have any good exercise routines or any suggestions? I can't keep going on this way and need to actually feel better
