Cervical Stenosis nausea and dizziness

hello everyone!

Ive been dealing with spinal problems for a while now. Recently learned I have cervical stenosis and have been having dizziness and nausea and near fainting spells. Because its on the left side I also get numbing. The doctors dont think its my heart at all and thought I know this I cant help but worry. Mainly because I am so frustrated with my body. Does anyone else get these spells? Is it normal with this condition? And how can I cope?



  • Hi I’ve also got cervical stenosis but not the dizziness. I’ve been reading a lot though (I’ve had radio frequency ablations over past month). Two things could be causing what you’re feeling - issues with a particular level of the spine (I think c3 can be related to fainting) or the growth of bone spurs either.

  • I have cervical stenosis too. Before my surgery, I was experiencing dizziness, vertigo, the tingling and numbness in my hands and feet spread to my arms and legs which then became useless. I just had three level ACDF surgery so we shall see what I become when the healing is all over
