Cervical spine
In March 2015, X-ray of cervical spine revealed "straightening of cervical spine due to muscular spasm". Other things were normal including bone density etc (copy of report is attached). However, after a period of every 2-3 months, I feel acute weakness and also dizziness/giddiness. Can it be due to this. What should I do. Please suggest.

Dear loss of lordosis in spine is usually due to poor posture. You have to get evaluated by spine specialist for neurology assessment. For giddiness get  dynamic views of cervical spine, and use collar for 2 weeks. Get assess by Ent for ruling out inner ear issues. If normal pls do excercises as advice by spine specialist or physiotherapy even if you are asymptomatic.

Dizziness/giddiness can be due to cervical straightening and muscular spasm. U can use hot water bag n gel over neck and shoulder to relax muscles. Physical therapy will help you in proper recovery n muscle strengthening.
