Thank you for posting your query.

I do not think your spinal problem is related to your headaches.

Headaches are most likely to be due to migraines, which ni addition to causing headaches, can cause dizziness and vomiting.

Normal scan is a reassuring news.

You may take rizatriptan tablet to reduce the headaches. Preventive treatment would be required if you get frequent headaches.

Please get back if you require any additional information.
