Mainly Brain Issues - can someone help?

Hi all,

I've some of the notes on this forum and it's fantastic how much support everyone is giving. I was wondering if any one is able to help my situation.

My main symptoms are left hand sided issues - the main issue being brain fog, speech, vision and memory related. Also has issues with general weakness in the left side of my body, frequent urination, digestion issues, knee soreness etc The best way to describe the head symptoms is it feels like the the left hand side of my brain is being slowly suffocated. This has been going on for about 10 years or so, worsening by the week which is quite distressing as I fear for my mental and physical health.

I've had a barage of tests including brain MRIs (twice, both normal) I appear to be in good health, on the surface at least.

Randomly, I recently saw a chiropractor to help deal with some recent lower back issues I've been having. After getting the x rays done, it appears I have sublaxation in my neck (c1 - c2) and in my lower spine (she mentioned Spida Bifida or a similiar birth defect in my spine). I got quite excited, as this is the first test of any kind I've had which has shown something is wrong in the brain / head area.

I've been having adjustments - the first one felt good on my head symptoms but haven't quite had the same feeling since (if anything, I generally feel worse although it does vary). I live in Melbourne, Australia and consider taking the X-Rays to another specialist who might specialise in Atlas issues, although I'm a bit of novice at the moment in terms of what options I could consider.

I was wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation, having had to deal with brain issues and getting treatment through some kind of chiropractic care?

Any help is appreciated!
