    The dizziness lasts for a week in which time i take Stugeron 25 mg twice a day.When i get pain in the neck region i take zero dol p or some diclofenac.
    I am a vegetarian and 70 years old.
    My medical history is I had IHD 37 yrs back no complications/mild Hypertension (Under control)Diabetes (since 2010) Hyperthyroidsm(2011). All are under control.
    When i saw an ortho , he said that i have cervical spondylosis and the vertebrae are degenerating, and suggested stugeron .But i am not thoroughly satisfied with his findings. Hence i am seeking your opinion. Kindly study my case and advise the most probable reason for this dizzyness.

    The list of potential causes of dizziness is very long. The cervical spine is on that list but the chances of the cervical spine causing this symptom is very low. You might be helped by an ear nose throat doctor who specializes in this disorder or an internist with a special interest in this symptom.

    Your symptoms are most likely not from your spine. I unfortunately cannot help you with this problem.
