I had cervical disectomy and fusion on c4-c7 on 12/1/2011, since the surgery i have been getting dizziness, which i have told the doctor about, he insists that it is an inner ear problem, and sent me to a neuroligist, and i took it upon myself to see ear specialist also, never had this problem until i had the surgery, but none of the medications i have been given help it at all, seems to be worse when neck is stiff also, doctor claims is not my neck to consult ent, or neurologist? Can anyone help me?

i had anterior cervical fusion 5-3-2012;  3 spacers

developed vertigo/dizzyness about 6 weeks later.  Nurse friend said to go to her 'dizzy' dr., an ENT, for physical therapy.  Could not go 'cause neurosurgeon did not clear me for any pt.  Finally saw surgeon and he also referred me to the 'dizzy' dr. ENT --  saw him, got diagonosed w/ vertigo - wow - and he sent me to pt for  EPLEY'S MANEUVER .  Simple moving of head by PT guy who knows his stuff !!  gone in couple visits over couple weeks.  don't give up !

I am having same problem after C5-7 fusion on 11/12/12. Did you get the problem taken care of and if so, what was your diagnosis and treatment? I totally blacked out this last Sunday! And I'm almost 4 months post-surgery!

I too suffer dizziness after cervical spine surgery. 3 levels. Disc replacement and a titanium cage and 8 screws. I've been to ent dr. My own personal physician. A neurologist. My neurosurgeon. NO ONE can find a reason for my dizzy spells. My endocrinologist said I was lacking B vitamin. So I started B complex. Still get dizzy spells. My cervical surgery was 10/23/2013.

My lumbar had two bad discs. I did exercise for a year. My cpap mask doesn't work and I was so tired I couldn't exercise for a month. Then I had medication that put to sleep a long time. Now I'm dizzy and can't keep my balance.
