      Your welcome.

      They say that some chiropractic work helps. Thought this was one example.

      Erik --- I'll be interested to hear more about your appointment with the chiro that specializes in upper cervical. I tried this about a month ago, for my tinnitus/pulsatile tinnitus. I had two Atlas adjustments, which helped me with body alignment -- but it didn't really improve my tinnitus or my pulsating.

      I hope the adjustment helps you. Please update us on your experience!

      Erik -- How did the upper cervical adjustment go? Did it help your tinnitus?

      Hi Karen,

      Had 1 week, 4 treatments so far. Not really helped and in fact things were worse for me the past 4 days until today. I'm not sure if it was specifically caused by the treatments or I was due for a spike. Maybe the therapy is jarring my nervous system or something. Unfortunately my T radiates down my ear and tingles thru the same side of my face and neck.

      Either way I am going to stick it out for a while. I'll report back weekly.

      Well, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that it was only a temporary spike. I'm glad you're going to try it for awhile to see how it goes. I truly hope it helps reduce the tinnitus!

      I have nervous system issues surrounding my tinnitus, too -- but in my case, it's because I have pulsating in my head 24/7!

      Thanks; keep us posted.

      I had two sessions of upper cervical chiro and it made mine a lot worse. When I came out the second time my left eye was bloodshot and my T was at full blast. I don't know if I just got unlucky with that particular practitioner but it has put me off chiros for a while. I still have regular neck massages which have helped me to relax. I get similar symptoms with myofacial pain and a stiff neck, especially when I wake up.

      It will be interesting to see @erik's report, I might try this again if we get some positive outcomes.

      I have the same tingling feeling which can extend all the way down to my feet at times. I think it may be nerve entrapment or impingement so tomorrow I go in for my first osteopathic treatment. I've tried a chiropractor, but the treatment didn't change anything. I stayed with it for a couple of months just to make sure but the RT remained the same. My life has been constant adjustments trying to live with RT and hearing loss 24/7. Usually I'm able to keep myself in pretty good spirits but the last two weeks I had horrible spikes and was a basket case. I became a hermit again out of self preservation but I hate living that way.
