Please keep going to your health care provider. This could be related to inner ear dysfunction (labyrinthitis), but other diseases are also possible. A consultation with a neurologist may be helpful. Loss of cervical lordosis can relate to muscle spasm, among other causes.

Ataxia, or a staggering walk akin to being drunk without alcohol is symptom. Coordination problems--trouble writing, buttoning buttons, discerning coins in your pocket. Spastic reflexes or muscle twitches. Weakness in hands, numbness like stockings and gloves. May be caused by cervical stenosis or herniated disk. Cervical MRI would be diagnostic.
