Vertigo after ACDF

I had C-5-7 ACDF on July 19, 2016. I am still in my neck brace and really only have to take 500mg of Tylenol after waking up. I am pleased with my pain as it has decreased tremendously. 3 days after being home I have had the worse vertigo that does not go away. I saw my family doctor which gave me Antivert 25mg 3 times a day with no relief at all. I contacted him again and he prescribed a prednisone 4mg pack which I am half through. It has eased up some but still bad. Anyone had this issue and did you find a solution? Please help and thank you!!


  • Hello, Bobo81!

    Vertigo is terrible...I'm sorry you're having such problems with it!!  I have had a couple of moments with it, but my experience certainly does not compare to yours.  Since the prednisone does seem to be helping (even if just a little), I'm wondering if the vertigo will ease as your nerves heal from the inflammation caused by surgery?  Just a thought...

  • I am closing your duplicate post due to the following:

    Spine-Health Forum Rule:
    5.11 You agree not to make duplicate threads.

    was put in place to avoid confusion on the boards.

    Many people think if they duplicate their thread on several different forum categories, their message will get to more members and responses will follow.

    Unfortunately, this does not happen.

    Member A creates Thread "A" on Forum category: Lower Back Pain
    Then creates Thread "A" on Forum category :New Member Introductions
    Then creates Thread "A" on forum category: Conditions Not covered.

    So now, we have 3 Thread "A" all which are 100% duplicates.

    Member B sees Thread "A" in Lower back pain and responds.
    Member C sees Thread "A" in Conditions not covered
    No one reads Thread "A" in New Member conditions

    We now have different posts in the different forum categories but addressing the same subject.

    We lose any thread/post continuity. The though process is lost and other members may never read the other Thread "A"

    That is the real reason this rule is in place!
