Cervical spondylosis
butterfly55119 posted:
I was just diagnoised with cervical spondylosis, I have a few questions.
I have a work related injury and I'm sure this has brought this spondylosis to a flare up.

1. Does anybody get horrible headaches and you bridge of your nose actually swells up?
2. I have a mild bulging disc in my neck with pain across the shoulders and numbness down both arms to my thumbs, is this normal?
3. Does anybody have positional headaches with this?

Thanks for any help you can offer.. Mel
