ABSTRACT

Objective:

To study the regularity of clinical symptoms of sympathetic cervical spondylosis.

Methods:

A retrospective study was conducted on 110 patients with sympathetic cervical spondylosis admitted to the outpatient department from 2017 to 2019. The regularity of clinical symptoms of the patients was analyzed, including the sympathetic symptoms of different systems, the property of dizziness, the sequence, time interval and correlation of the symptoms, and whether the numbness of the limbs was accompanied by the symptoms and signs of cervical spondylotic radiculopathy and cervical spondylotic myelopathy.

Results:

The sympathetic symptoms were complex, involved in digestive system (71.82%), cardiovascular system (83.64%), respiratory system (63.64%), sweat gland (48.18%), eyes (81.82%), ears (60.91%), brain (68.18%) and limbs (70%), mainly sympathetic excitatory. The dizziness of the patients was mainly manifested as muddled brain (66.36%), a few patients were accompanied by external objects or their own rotation and sloshing (23.64%), and a very few patients showed external objects or their own rotation and sloshing (8.18%). Most patients complained chronic neck pain before dizziness and other sympathetic symptoms, accounting for 58.18%. The mean time for progression from neck pain to dizziness was (68.98±64.42) months. There were 77 patients complaining limb numbness, but none of them was found symptoms or signs of cervical spondylotic radiculopathy or cervical spondylotic myelopathy. It seemed to be a part of sympathetic symptoms in the limbs. The severity of dizziness was positively correlated with the course of disease (r = 0.610, P < 0.001), and was also positively correlated with the score of sympathetic symptom (r = 0.301, P = 0.004).

Conclusion:

The symptoms of sympathetic cervical spondylosis are complex. Muddled brain is the main symptom of dizziness, not vertigo. As the disease progresses, dizziness and sympathetic symptoms gradually worsen. Most sympathetic cervical spondylosis develops from cervical spondylosis. Cervical spondylotic radiculopathy or cervical spondylotic myelopathy may be the more severe forms of cervical spondylosis that develop on this basis。
