OurFullHouse, Oh my — your symptoms were worsened after a chiropractic adjustment?! OK, that changes things a bit. In order of importance, if your doctors haven’t considered this, please know that because we tend to be a thrombotic bunch, I wonder if you could have an intracranial thrombosis impeding your CSF outflow? Have you heard of ‘hair salon stroke’? Sometimes just bending our necks can cause a thromboembolism. My husband (who is not hypermobile) experienced stroke-like symptoms after a chiropractic adjustment. SCARY. As is in The Driscoll Theory book, and mentioned on the video, we can be prone to thrombosis, and an intracranial thrombosis (the transverse sinus is a common location for one) can slow CSF outflow. It can be bad enough to make us faint, but is easy to miss. There is a narrow window for treatment, so your doctor may want to consider that first. Secondly, your C1/C2 may have gotten out of position, and a properly performed x-ray can tell. Some chiropractors specialize in this, and they use instruments that use gentle vibration (NO CRACKING OR BENDING OF THE NECK) to encourage it to straighten again. This should return you to baseline again, without surgery. If the bone has been out of place for a while, it may need to be ‘encouraged’ back a few times before it stays put. This is about the only time I ever recommend chiropractic. Otherwise, they scare me… Honestly. Let us know?
