Could moderate to severe stenosis in cervical and thoracic spine cause pain, weakness in the upper arm, dizziness and tinnitus when stretChing my neck?

Some advice: Although your symptoms could be prompted by cervical stenosis or even nerve pinching at the foraminal outlet, the dizziness, and tinnitus, makes me wonder about co-morbidities, and would think of inner ear issues, but also vascular problems, such as subclavian steal syndrome. Find a neurologist who is open to investigating this more thoroughly. ...Read more

Would pulsatile tinnitus in right ear cause dizziness, if i gently press artery in neck i get even dizzier, so does coughing or any sort of pressure .?

Pulsatile Tinnitus: No, pulsatile tinnitus does not cause dizziness. But, the cause of the tinnitus may be associated with dizziness, that is, what causes one may contribute to the other. You should see an ENT and get to the bottom of your symptoms. They suggest increased pressure inside your head or turbulent blood flow in a large vessel. Both possibilities require tests, such an mri/mra and carotid artery doppler. ...Read more

Tinnitus(highly) & dizziness(highly)  after vit B12 im injection(first time), i felt some better after 5 minutes, now 30 minuts still dizziness.

B12 harmless: The B12 itself injected into the body should not cause tinnitus and/or dizziness or any other toxicity. I doubt there were any other substances in the bottle of B12 that you reacted to either. Check with your pcp first and if symptoms persist see an ENT specialist(otolaryngologist) or a neurologist for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Assuming labyrinthitis..1 time vertigo, some dizziness, tinnitus. This is my 4th week, when can I expect the tinnitus to go away? Other symptoms gone.

There may be some options for injection of the steroids into your middle ear at this point. But you need an audiogram first to know what your hearing is. Time is of the essence to see an ent! ...Read more
