And how severe is your spinal stenosis as this can make someone feel dizzy or light headed?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Quite bad and it's causing bad numbness in my feet
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Really I never knew that

There are several causes of head sweats and light headedness and in your case, the cause could be spinal stenosis. So, I think this should be looked into further by your GP.

The other causes are thyroid disease, low blood pressure, vitamin deficiencies and your GP can also check for that.

And if you are getting numbness in your feet, I suggest you ask your GP to arrange an MRI scan of your spine to ensure there is no pressure on the nerves due to stenosis.

You can take painkillers for the pain for now and could try over the counter promethazine for dizziness which could help.

Thankyou so much

You can continue with those painkillers.

Yes, you should definitely try to see your GP if possible.

If anything gets worse, you can also call 111 or go to Walk in Clinic for assessment.
