Hi Folks

About Nov 2012 I had a visit to my chiro and had a bit of a tune up done. At the end of the session he performed a manoeuvre I now know as a thoracic lift. immediately when it was performed I felt a sharp stabbing pain at approximately C7 -T1 (between shoulders). Over the next two days I noticed that performing my usual duties I seemed to be a bit tachy and wondered how I had become unfit over night. The third night I went to get off the couch and felt as if my manubrium was being pushed through my back. A visit to the ER ensued thinking at first i was having a heart attack. (nad)

There is a lot of history and tests that I went through over the initial months that i am not going to elaborate on in the efforts of brevity.

For approximately 16 months i experienced severe bouts of tachycardia (150 bpm+) seemingly at random since the date of the adjustment/incident. And was told repeatedly that it was severe anxiety by all and sundry . To this day this is a diagnosis that I absolutely refuse to except and here is why.

Over the 16 months till March 2014. I saw many therapist including physio, osteo, chiro etc and had varying degrees of success. In March 2014 to see a Naturopath/Chiro and at the end of the consultation he performed some manipulations including the same thoracic lift i had 16 months earlier.

About a month later i noticed that the bouts of tachycardia had had been experiencing had ceased.

Now here's the kicker, to this day no Dr or Specialist, No one believes that this is medically possible.

Can someone please tell me what went happened in the initial adjustment to caused the bouts of tachycardia????
