Tingling in neck face chest after treatment

Tingling in neck, left side of face, chest and feel tight in my throat area

I was just adjusted today for a pinched nerve on the left side of my neck. My neck also has no curve and there is s curve in my lower spine. I have felt fine all day until an hour or so ago and the things I'm feeling are a little scary.

The numbness and tingling from my ear, down my neck, to my chest. My neck also feels very hot and my throat area feels tight. Is this normal?

Dear Brooke,

Whilst a certain amount of after chiropractic treatment pain is not uncommon, I'm not convinced we can consider this normal. Frankly I would phone your chiropractor immediately and ask for direction. Don't be fobbed off.

If the tingling, or other signs, worsen I'd go to the ER. Very, very occasionally you may have to go onto Warfarin.

I'm not trying to scare you, but it's better to be over-concerned and find it's nothing, than ignore these symptoms and find they were for real.

Phone your chiro. Now.

I have similar sensations
by: Anonymous

I have been experiencing the same sensations; I am 27 years old; did the sensations go away or did you get a check up? I just need some peace of mind.

If the symptoms continue for any length of time, you should pursue it. Start with a frank discussion with your chiropractor, and if you get evasion and prevarication, see your medical doctor; don't agree to any further treatment until you have some solid answers.
