There isn’t enough evidence to support the diagnosis of cervical vertigo. Some argue that cervical vertigo can be related to compressed blood vessel and/or nerve endings. An MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) would not show this. MRIs are done to rule out growths such as tumours. People with motion sensitivity usually avoid moving their head and tend to move in a block without turning their neck. Little by little, this leads to a stiff and sore neck; when you are forced to move your neck, you get dizzier.
Instead of using a firm pillow to keep your head immobile while sleeping, for example, consider doing some type of exercise, such as tai chi, involving gentle head movement; over time, you’ll be able to move your head more freely without feeling dizzy.
