What do numbness and pressure in the head along with dizziness indicate?

i heard a loud pop on my head like something heavy fell. The following day my head started feeling numb, pressured, and loosing balance. It s been two days now that the numbness is getting heavier continuously and i m loosing balance more often as well as feeling nauseated. What could this be?

The basic problem in both of your complaints is involvement of cervical spines discs causing entrapment of spinal nerves at two levels at upper level. It causes entrapment of nerve suplying ear causing cochlear apparatus which causes dizziness.

Cervical spinal problem entrapping facial nerve compasses never suppling hand causes pain and numbness in hands.

Treatment consists of pain removers (Ibuprofen or over the counter drug), physiotherapy, and surgery in nonresponding patients. Also, please consult a spinal surgeon.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
