The CT scan is not the best study to look for migrane or lightheadedness origins but if there are degenerative facets in the upper cervical spine, these might show up on this scan. There is no report of these findings.

“Going numb from the wrist to the finger tips” sounds more like carpel tunnel syndrome (see website) than cervical origin.
