Hello...your report is suggestive of cervical spondylosis. It is a rare cause cause of giddiness, when the osteophytes are large enough to press on the vertebral arteries. I think you should rule out other causes of vertigo specially a ear cause. See a ear specialist first. To rule out cervical spondylosis as a cause of giddiness a 4 vessel Doppler test is required. Take care.
