Brief history is I had a serious neck injury several years ago that was treated by an ortho and did PT. Likely never healed corrextly and pain resurfaced this may. I went to a chiropractor in early June. Determined C1/C2 severe subluxations and also C5/C6. also X-ray showed reverse curve and slight left leg length discrepancy. A few hours after the first adjustment, I felt a strange tightness "pressure" sensation in my inner cheek. started going twice to three times a week and more strange symptoms started appearing ... Pressure/ pulling all over left side of face, weird feeling in left eye, where it feels sticky or dry,
muscles feel much tighter when I close the left eye, normal on right.
Perceived weakness in left arm and leg where I feel like im limping but am not according to others. (All movement is intact and strength test was normal)
I can almost feel like there is a specific nerve path that is irritated that goes through my left ring finger and down that side, exercerbated by occasional marijuana use. tension sensation on right side of head now ... I am terrified because I also have severe anxiety and even though it would make sense for this to be a chiropractic nightmare/ neck injury I've oractically convinced myself I am dying of a brain tumor so I am scared to go to a neurologist/ neurosurgeon until enough time has passed that I can feel certain that it is a cervical neck issue. Has ANYONE experienced anything like this and can anyone help me/ convince me / reassure me
That this is likely a combination of a serious neck issue/ chiropractic damage rather than a brain tumor ... Please ... Thank you im advance.

  • Bump... Experiences, thoughts etc. Ik none of yall are doctors but
  • I've had very bizarre tightness in my drop foot leg and that stems from a nerve root Iimpingement in my lower back. I've learned you know your own body best. Yours has also thrown anxiety into the mix making it really hard, but not impossible if you can state facts to those you go to medical care. Just keep your symptoms factually documented and bring this to the table. I think the changes you've noticed are worthy of medical attention. If your previous injury may be part of the underlying cause of today's injury then I'd move myself faster.

    I'd stay the hell away from chiropractors. Sorry chiros. They just don't know and I'd rather not move my spine ever unless I knew what was the matter.

    You don't know what's the matter with you. I've been in the position where I thought I had a stroke and my leg wouldn't move. I just knew I needed help. I knew I was in pain. Conjuring up anything else is speculation. Wouldn't you rather focus on the facts and then convincing a doctor to help you answer those questions rather than guess?

    I hope you get what you need sooner than later so you can get better.
