I do feel some vertigo every now and then. Dizziness occasionally. I have not undergone any tests. The pain does not seem to radiate onto my arm. I get a tingling at the base of my left neck. Most of the problem is sharp pain when I turn my head; even when I am not turning my head my neck hurts continually.
I am wondering if I can continue doing Zumba? I have not done it since I fell. Will any twisting and turning make this any worse or help? I have been afraid to because of the pain and I am afraid. i have had two bulging disks in my neck from a car accident 12 years ago. I believe it was at C-1 and C-4-or 5. i don't have the documents here to give the specifics. Could one of them ruptured? or becoming herniated? I don't know if there is even a difference. These are fears that have gone through my head. i will do what you have told me. We just don't have the type of Doctors here in our area to help me with this. We are working on finding some in another city. The cost is also something we need to figure out
Thank you Dr. Charles. You help is appreciated. I know what direction to go in now and be able to more intelligently talk to a Dr. about what is going on. Sincerely, Tammy
I have not consulted a Doctor yet. Financially, we can't afford the tests right now, plus, we have no one here in our community that we feel confident seeing. I am trying the things you told me to do, to help my symptoms. I purchased a neck brace and it seems to help when I need to be up moving around. Right now I really don't know what else to do.
