Tinnitus

SHARE

I have suffered from the onset of a high pitched pulsatile tinnitis within days after neck adjustment by a chiropractor (he stated he adjusted the top of the spine near the skull which he said is in the auditory system region). I returned to him several weeks later complaining of tinnitus and he performed the adjustments again. The tinnitus is now louder and in both ears. The volume reduces by 40-60% by the end of the day but after sleeping I wake up with it roaring. Twisting my head changes the pitch & loudness of the tinnitus & bending over or straining increases the loudness.Can adjustments to the spine in the neck region give rise to tinnitus. Any suggestions to alleviate?Thanks
