Doctor :  
Was it only the concentration or headache
User :   i was feeling dizzy at times. also i have disc prolapse. whenever i get stressed, i get a feeling as if something is heavy in my head. which translates into headache
User :   also i feel tired most of the time
Doctor :   Ok the feeling of dizziness has many reasons and the ENT specialist thought it could be a cause that can be taken care by him with the septoplasty
Doctor :  
Since it is not relieved there could be other reasons
User :   oh
Doctor :  
I would like to know the location of disc prolapse
User :   c4-c5, c5-c6

for dizziness and headache
User :   oh i see. what could be the possible solutions for this doctor?
Doctor :   Did you see the doctor in Orthopedics
