      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Noise-induced, Ear Infection, Medication... Who knows?
      im really confused ... i just had an mri and it showed my c2-3 were normal, but i go to a nucca and with the xrays they do which i believe are 3d my atlas was twisted and c-2 was abnormal so i was thinking maybe neck issues with these 2 areas were causing tinnitus ,but now im not sure if they are even a problem! i know my c5 is messed up.. so which is more accurate???anybody have a clue?thanks!

      I've heard that MRI can be extremely inaccurate, depending on what your looking for, if your looking for a spine problem, you need to be standing up/sitting, doing a weight bearing x ray or MRI, but most of the time when you get a MRI you are laying down. which I have heard from a great chiropractor/doctor is not good for finding a spine problem.
