... swelling, & dizzy spells?

Hello, I had an appointment w/ a doctor at the hospital in the Neurological/Psychiatric office and she told me that my C.T. Scan showed that I had swelling in my brain and a possible pinched nerve in my neck. I was diagnosed some years ago with Thoracic Kyphosis-Acquired, an abnormal curve of my thoracic spine, could this be causing all this? I was in a serious drunk driving auto accident decades ago as a toddler and she thinks that maybe I am having problems related to that. I have another appt. in January and a appt. with my P.C.P. in December, which is closer now than it was when it was given to me. Any ideas to the causes would be greatly taken.
