I have posted here before about my neck/lower back problems. A month ago, I went to a chiropractor and found out my neck was 40 degrees to far forward, and my lower back wasn't curved right. Well, I've been going to the chiropractor 3 times a week and have been doing the "traction" treatment thing. Well on Thursday after getting a treatment and doing traction for 8 min, later that night I noticed that my head felt like it was just full of pressure. I also noticed that my face was kind of feeling numb, not really bad, but just feeling weird. On friday, I woke up with a horrible headache on the top of my head, right side. I was extremely tired, and my arms were tingling. My arms have tingled before, but they have been tingling ever since then. On Saturday, my head felt like it was full of pressure again, and I felt this burning sensation on the top of my head, right side. Felt the same on Sunday, tyelnol did not help at all.
Well, I went to the chiropractor today and told him everything and of course, he just looks at me like i'm weird. I layed down on my back and he rubbed my neck and pushed on it and I told him when he pushed right there, I got the burning sensation at the top of my head. All he said was "Your neck is probably causing the burning sensation." And that's all he said about it!!! Then they put me in that darn traction thing AGAIN and I still have the burning sensation, the tingly arms/hands and weak legs.
I'm 18 years old and I feel miserable! What is going on, and why isn't the chiropractor doing anything about my symptoms!? Should I go somewhere to get a different opinion? Is it more than just I'm out of "alignment", could I have a pinched nerve somewhere?! I'm getting really stressed out over this and really depressed because I don't know what to do, neither do my parents.
Please help!! ANY information/suggestions would help! Thank you.
