Hi can tight neck muscles cause dizziness and balance problems?

Hi can tight neck muscles cause dizziness and balance problems?

Very doubtful: A neck muscle problem primarily would not cause dizziness or balance problems. However, problems with your spine could cause both balance problems and neck pain. Dizziness would still be a separate issue.

Can fibroid cysts and heavy periods cause dizziness, lightheadedness and loss of balance ekg, tilt table. Thyroid, and stress test all good?

Bleeding, anemia: Fibroids, also called leiomyomas are benign uterine tumors (not cysts) that can cause pain and heavy bleeding with your periods. If they are causing very heavy periods, this can lead to anemia and the dizziness, lightheadedness, etc you described. They are easily diagnosed with an ultrasound. See your ob/gyn for this.

Not usually: But why not replenish this vital vitamin, as it is critical in numerous immunological and hormonal bodily functions, and deficiencies have been associated with numerous problems. Give it at least 3 months, and recheck levels at that point.

What causes sudden dizziness and nausea with balance problems?

What causes sudden dizziness and nausea with balance problems?

Vertigo: The symptoms you describe suggest a diagnosis of an inner ear problem called labarynthitis. Causes are multiple, some benign and some serious. If symptoms are persistant, serious problems are more likely. See your family doctor to discuss this matter further and to determine if further evaluation is required.

I experience brief dizziness and balance problems and occasionally some very brief sensations in my chest (non painful) that go away quickly. They are typically 2-3inches below my nipple or to the left, near my side. Rarely in the center of my chest?

Not certain: It is difficult to explain your symptoms without further evaluation. This could be cardiac, arrhythmia or neurological in origin. I favor arrhythmia from your description. You need a physical examination and some simple lab testing to define the problem. Establish with a health care professional and get checked out.

What is this? Balance problems while standing, feeling off balance or I might fall. Feeling dizzy when I turn my head. I get very sensitive sensations.

Diagnosis: Balance problems may be otologic (inner ear) or central (brain). The symptoms sound like benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (an inner ear disturbance caused by loose calcium carbonate stones). See an ent physician for appropriate diagnosis and therapy.

Can you help determine my symptoms? Dizziness, tremors on left side, head pain, balance problems and general body pains. Been to the doctors, no help

See a neurologist: The dizziness, imbalance, focal tremors, associated with aches and pains suggest many potential illnesses, and this needs to be diagnosed. Am perplexed why you conclude that your doctors have been of "no help", as our job is to diagnose and ease misery, not to ignore problems. In pts with many problems such as yours, might wonder about lyme disease, inflammatory issues, vasculitis, etc.
