← Return to Vestibular migraine: What symptoms do you experience?

Also, did you just do a normal MRI lying down or in a supine position? I just hope whatever is causing all this will show up in MRI. I did a cervical MRI a year ago and I do have 2 bulging discs- C4-C5 (small) and C5-C6 (moderate). Curious if anything has changed in a year? But my upper cervical to the right is where I feel pain and like a bobble head feeling. Hope chiropractor didn't permanently damage something.

@erin38 Yes, my MRIs were done laying down on my back. If you do have misalignment or rotation, that will show up on an MRI. They may not pay attention to it or may think it is because of a passing muscle spasm. Talk to the radiology person about making sure to look carefully at the upper cervical vertebrae for any misalignment. An X ray will also show alignment of bones, but not the bulging discs. X-rays often are done in different positions of flexion or extension to show if the vertebrae are slipping forward or back. For involved spine cases with deformity, they can do standing full spine X-rays and compare that to laying down and it may be very different. I hope that physical therapy will be enough to help you. You might look for a good PT now to see for an evaluation after you get imaging done.
