Does herniated disc cause pain and stiffness in neck?

yes I have equilibrium unbalance ringing in the ears and dizziness a lot. I went to the ear nose and throat doctor everything came back good. My equilibrium problem started a few years back but has got worse I cant walk heel to toe if I close my eyes I will fall. I have stated having dizzy spells for maybe a year now and my ears don't stop ringing. I had mri;s of my brain last year and they ruled out a tumor. I was in a car accident about 11yrs ago had several disrupted disks and a herniated disk with no actual treatment for this. I have had flare ups through the yrs with swelling in the neck and pain. got used to pain and stiffness neck always makes noise. My heart is good according to tests. Could this be from these disk?

Hello and welcome to healthcare magic.
You haven't mentioned the exact location of your herniation,whether cervical(neck region) or lower down.
If the herniation or disc prolapse is in the neck region,then definitely it can cause several annoying symptoms like neck pain and rigidity,shooting pain along your shoulder to your arms,numbness and sometimes, pin and needle sensations in your finger tips.
It can even produce your ear symptoms like loss of balance and ringing sensation.
My advice is to visit a good Ortho specialist and let him have alook.
Hope this will be helpful to you
Have a Great day.
