Can sciatica cause dizziness?

Can sciatica cause dizziness?

Possible: However the nerve that is injured that would cause dizziness is either in the head or in the brain stem. So unless these areas were injured unlikely that dizziness is associated with pinched nerve. Some people who have a lot of pain, can have a vasovagal response in which the body is trying to cope with the pain and can cause you to feel sick to your stomach, dizziness or feeling of passing out.

More information: You need to provide more information for any reasonable answer to your question. At any rate a complex problem like you describe can not be handled on line. I advise you to see a neurologist after an initial internal medicean examination.

Iud moved. Arm pushing against uterus. Was fine b4 but now I feel I have 2 pee always w constant pressure, bleeding, dizzy, low Back pain. Uti or iud?

Iud moved. Arm pushing against uterus. Was fine b4 but now I feel I have 2 pee always w constant pressure, bleeding, dizzy, low Back pain. Uti or iud?

IUd vs uti: Could be either. Does the back pain just under the ribs in the back? Does your urine smell, are you running a fever? These are all signs of an infection. You can always call your physician and get a script for a uti to see if the problem clears up. If it does not clear up, then you need to be seen. I am sure the obgyn can do an ultrasound to check the position of the IUD later. Good luck
