Hi there,

I had recently an MRI done and it was determined that I have some exostosis on my C4/C5. Since I was complaining of dizziness and loss of balance I was also diagnosed with a Vestibular syndrom, but it seems the dizziness comes mostly from the exostosis. I also have some stiffness and numbness when walking in my arms and legs, as well as instability further down the spine, around the waist area. I am undergoing some therapy at the moment, which frankly hasn't helped me much so far, but any advise on how to relieve any of this discomfort is very wellcome.

If any of you suffers of a similar problem, please share what yu have found to help you avoid the dizziness and all the rest that goes with it as a result of the exostosis. I am 37 and always been very active. This problem now not only slows me down, but basically makes me feel tired all the time and I put lots of effort to do the smallest activity. I have another 3 weeks before I go back to work and I doubt I will be able to do my job in this condition. Does it ever get better? I have been given medication for the Vestibular aparatus, but not for the exostosis.

Thanks so much, looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards: Jeneta
