Headache after Chiropractic Manipulation

I have had very tense neck muscles and have been seeing a chiropractor once a week for manipulations. No problem until yesterday.....about 3 hours after i got home i developed a headache from the base of my skull to the forehead. I took 2 Darvocet, went to bed, and woke up with the same HA..only worse. I was slightly nauseated too. Since i had to go to work, I took 2 Exedrine. worked for 6 hours and now it is coming back. Has anybody else experienced this?

Re: Headache after Chiropractic Manipulation

I'ts really hard to say--sometimes especially when I first started seeing my chiropracter, when nothing else was working I felt better, then when he was forcing my neck to pop, same thing, I would end up with headaches. If it continues, I would have it looked at by your dr. You don't want the chiro to cause any damage so be careful!

Did you call your chiropractor?

Much better today. I did call ask him about it. He told me it was from tense neck muscles and recommended heat. It helped a bit, but the Exedrine helped more.
