Hello -

Do you know if you have a "odontoid fracture"?

"hangman's fracture"?

Something else?

Are you in a hard - cervical collar?

Doctor: Dr. Mark, Physician / Surgeon replied 3 months ago

OK.

You were seen by a spine surgeon, who recommended the soft collar, correct?

And what specific question did you have for us?

If my dizziness could be from the fracture or my allergies ?
Doctor: Dr. Mark, Physician / Surgeon replied 3 months ago

OK.

The dizziness should not be from the fracture.

The fact that you are in a soft collar tells me that the fracture is stable, and healing. Issues with a fracture at C2 could cause neck pain, or pain in the lower back part of the head, but would not cause dizziness.

Allergies that affect your sinuses could play a role in some dizziness, as if you have congestion and inflammation in the sinuses, it could be related to inflammation in the inner ear which could contribute to dizziness.

And one common reason for dizziness is BPPV:

which can be caused by sudden changes of position of your head.

Best of luck.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
