Have spondolythesis grade 2 and sciatica. Headache, nausea, dizziness when bending. Due to trapped nerves?

I have recently been diagnosed with Spondolythesis grade 2 in the L5 S1 region which is apparently from a birth defect. I have somehow managed to fracture the vertebrae and am suffering with sciatica . I opted not to have the surgery yet, as I am hoping to avoid it by losing weight and getting fit. Lately I have noticed that I am getting headaches , nausea and feeling dizzy especially when I bend over. Could this be a result of the trapped nerves or should I be concerned it s something else. Any help would be greatly appreciated

firstly i would like to tell you that headache giddiness and vomiting cannot be due to spondylolisthesis at L5-S1 and as you said it can be managed conservatively unless there is any neurological deficit.
giddiness and nausea on forward bending could be due to haemodynamic changes like orthostatic hypotension or could be because of cervical spondylosis you need to check your blood pressure and also your cevical spine (neck) to rule out the cause of this.
