I have occasional giddiness due to cervical spondlysis since 2011 in sleeping posture turning from a particular position. Any suggestions?

X-ray defines it as 'degenerative changes seen in the form of osteophytes vertebrae'. It began with severity (with vomiting) but now it is mild. After few days suffering when I take extra care during sleeping postures, it disappears. This time it is lingering for last 15 days. I would like to listen to experience of others. My present FPS is 140 and PPS 170 without any medicine. I am on walking and neck exercises and managing active life at 70+ years.

I do not know whether my experience will be of relevance to you.I am also 70+ and diabetic.I suffer from degenerated disc problem(three discs in the lower back).At one point I was diagnosed for spondylytis,sciatica etc but ultimately,after an MRI,it turned out to be disc degeneration.Pain was felt at several places from left hip downwards.Doctor said there is no surgical treatment for this and prescribed physio therapy exercises.Luckily, after doing these exercises for about two months regularly,the pain now is just minimal.I rarely take a pain killer.I have no difficulty now to do my regular walk,driving etc.


Please check the Vertigo problem whether you have if any. recently i had similar issues like mildness, dizziness etc. three months before i had a ear pain and went off after 3 days. this issue may be relating to your ear and brain where there is mis match of equation and balancing. this results. currently i am using vertin 8 mg when ever i had experience this problem also using homeo also.


Consult a good homeopathic Doctor after going thro your history he will suggest medicine that will help immensely


Treatment is usually conservative in nature. Patient education on lifestyle modifications and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and physical therapy have been shown to manage such conditions.
