Brief Answer:
Correct posture and static neck exercises should help.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. The mild degenerative changes could contribute to your headache and dizziness. Improper sitting posture could be contributory. Unless you take corrective measures, this simple problem would worsen. I would insist you to try static neck exercises. Google out for the techniques. Take Vertin 8 as you have been advised. It should provide relief from the vertigo. You also need to drink plenty of water. Free hand exercise daily would be advisable.

Let me know if I could help further.

Thank you Doctor Saha
I have corrected my posture and started taking the medicine. Also i am moving my head very less . Now pain in neck is reduced. Using hot water bag on neck twice. Still in last 4 days i had experienced the problem twice.

Wanted to mention about one history, that I had Syncope 10 years back. The vertigo feeling comes all of sudden and face feels as if blood to my brain reduced. It lasts fro only 3-4 seconds. Whole body feels like cold with sweat. Kind of a sleepy feeling. It is similar feeling like start of syncope.

Overall the headache and heaviness is less.

Kindly advise further
