Concussion Syndrome: Typically a "pinched nerve" in the lower back will not cause any dizziness.

There are many other causes of dizziness that may require an ENT evaluation or neurological consult. Medication side effects? ...Read more

We can't see the dates of posts, so I have no way to know whether this happened yesterday, last week, last month, or last year. So: If this happened MORE than once, please repost & let us know. ...Read more
