Dizziness and blackouts

These can sometimes happen when body changes in cervical apondylosis cause pinching of the the vertebral artery. You may feel dizzy when looking up, or you may occasionally have blackouts.


Sometimes if you have neck pain you may also have muscle spasms that turn the head to one side. This is called torticollis. Although not very common, it is an unpleasant side-effect of neck pain. It useally lasts only a few hours or days, although rarely it may continue for several weeks.
