One month post op questions

I am so glad that I opted for the surgery last month! However couple questions for y’all.

I am still having bouts of dizziness but I notice they are coming on days that my neck is more stiff. Anyone else have this? How long does it take to clear up?

Also, I have ridiculous issues with the big nerve that runs up the back of the skull. The surgeon said it is normal for the nerve to be “mad” after surgery but I am noticing the uptick in sensations on the right side of my skull. I am assuming it is due to the nerve calming back down and hence the sleeping feeling is starting to subside. Anyone have issues like this?
