Depends: Depends on if you have nerve symptoms. If you have only back pain or sciatica type pain but no weakness or numbness or bowel or bladder problems, then you don't have to, but may want to see one to discuss first non-surgical options of treatment and then if they do not work, then possible surgical options.

Motion vs. lighthead: Vertigo is defined as "the sensation of motion in the absence of motion." this will lead to the feeling that either you are moving in some way (spinning is common) or your environment is moving. People with orthostatic hypotension do not typically complain of motion, rather they feel as if they are lightheaded or as if they might faint.

Old, however, are usually abnormal and may be seen with multiple sclerosis among many other entities. As one ages, these are more likely due to tiny arterial blockages and are fairly common in people over 70 yrs. Old.
