In brief: No unlikely
No they are not direct symptoms but if the cervical myleopathy is due to cord compression related to advanced degenerative changes, sometimes these changes can affect the vascular channels where the vertebral arteries are passing through and they may have blood flow impaired causing these symptoms.
You can get a mra to evaluate this as part of a work up by your doctor for these symptoms.
