hi my name is jodie locke iam 24 years of age.
I have been unwell for 4 years, since the birth of my Daughter. My problems started with my eyes, my left eyelid started to swell up and feel quite painful like there was pressure behind my eye. I then stared to get tired easily. I fell pregnant with second child and still had eye problems, blurred vision in left eye, fatigue, depression. After i gave birth to son, 2 years ago, it was a rapid labour, my eye lid swelled up very bad, i started to get headaches, terrible back pains, which felt like a tearing pain down the spine when i bent down.
I started to get very heavy legs and a very weak grip, pins and needles, numb left little finger.
These symptoms, as well as others (wekaness, muscle loss, stiff joints, anxiety) i still have them. I have been tested (blood) everything fine, i have not had a brain scan as Doctor does not feel i need one. So i went to see a chiropractor. He scanned my back and found some subluxations? and the scan showed red bars all down my back. The second visit he did some adjustments in neck and lower back, he was not gentle and i heard tremendous cracking in neck. Its been 3 days and i feel dizzy and have had headaches and i just want to sleep all the time.
I looked on the net at these symptoms and found there is a risk of stroke from having these adjustments. I am worried as i am unsure if what i am experiencing is a good thing and the body is healing itself or if he has caused me some damage. I also dont know if i should go back to see him as of the risks involved (??) and will he be able to help me with my symptoms anyway as alot of them are like MS.
