twisting like a candy cane

Hi guys thought i would give here a try to see if anyone has had a similar issue.

3 years ago i went to a chiro because at the time i didnt realise i was working out incorrectly which resulted it my hips being out of alignment and a slipped vertebrae, he did xrays and of course my hips were tilted in which made sense and from that the top of my body adjusted accordingly. He said i had curves in all the wrong places blah blah blah so for about 5 weeks i had adjustments and finally i thought this is enough nothing changed and on my last visit he adjusted my sacrum area and thats when it all started!.
A week or so later is started feeling a pinch i the middle of my back and a constant nees to go to the bathroom which got worse over time. At one stage i felt like half my fave was numb so i went to the emergency room waited for 4 hours for them to tell me they thought it was a viral infection :o... eventually the twisiting feeling stopped so did the pinching nd other symptoms but my whole body felt off my eyes didnt feel centre i was literally twisting. Slowly over the last year or so it has gotten much worse as in my spine has twisted so much my head feels like it is going to fall off. I have been to 5 different physios one being a sport and spine physio, seen countless doctors and spine "specialist" ( said if there is no pain there is no issue wtf) and just recently a osteo and all think it is different muscle. issues but no one wants to listen to me which is frustrating as u can feel the sacrum pull down to the left which is bringing everything else around with it and im going crazy and ontop of that it is causing 4 bulging discs in my lower back :(
Has anyone heard or can relate to this?? Anything would be greatly appreciated as i am lost on where to go next
