Specializes in Neurology

Cervical spondylosis surely does cause neck pain and stiffness, but is not a cause of night sweats, lightheadedness or breathlessness, and this is due to a different etiology. Indeed, a visit to your doctor may reveal whether this is due to a chronic infection, anemia, cardiovascular problems, pulmonary issues, or even panic attacks.
