This finding is highly suggestive of a lack of oxygen supply to your heart because of a critical blockage of a blood vessel in your heart. You should stop exercise and any activity that puts strain on your heart and see your MD about this problem ASAP. Read more

I have arthritis in my neck, would this cause me to have headaches and dizziness?

Neck arthritis: May cause headache, either as a referred pain or upper neck muscle spasm that leads to muscle contraction type headache. Dizziness can occur after whiplash type injuries (cervical vertigo). If the arthritis is causing bony spurs on your vertebrae it may compress the vertebral arteries causing vbi. But chronic "arthritis" of the neck is a low likelihood cause. Read more

I have a vertigo. It's triggered if I have a migraine, cold, or stress. Sometimes my ears ring. I also have neck pain, athritis rhematoid. Advise?

Migraine: Migraine is a common cause of vertigo. Vertigo is a sensation of movement when you are not moving. Not all dizziness is vertigo, and many people use it incorrectly. I recommend seeing an ENT, getting an audiogram and reviewing it all to see if it makes sense that it is migraine causing your symptoms. Need to rule out Meniere's disease, BPPV, others. Read more
