I saw a chiropractor yesterday about the migraines. He did neck and back adustments. The neck cracking was terrifying and really painful, but, I figured the benefits would outweigh that. It seems like it actually helped a bit already, and I was feeling optimistic about this.
But, I did some reading and apparently having neck adjustments can cause a stroke. And that risk is higher for people with migraines. Great. Now I’m scared to go back tomorrow.
The section on chiropractic therapy on this site says to seek immediate medical treatment if you get dizzy and nauseous after treatment. I definitely experienced that. I thought I was going to throw up and fall over. It went away, and they said it was normal, but that if it didn’t go away or got worse, to call them immediately.
So…did I have a stroke? Should I be at the doctor right now? Even if it’s not that, should I cancel my appointment?
