I am a 24 year old female. I have always been very healthy, all organic foods, take vitamin supplements, go hiking. Last year I was in two rear ended car accidents pretty much back to back. Six months later I started having this weird brain fog feeling. Dizziness and neck pain and low back pain. The pain was bearable but not the brain fog. It has progressively gotten worse. Other symptoms began to emerge a few months ago including a very heavy sort of weakness that spreads through my entire body, tingling feet, brain fog like I can't think, and dizziness. Not vertigo. I was given a ct scan last month and diagnosed with reversal of the cervical curve. After the diagnosis, I began going to an upper cervical specialist who took very detailed images of my neck and showed me my X-rays and told me I have atlas subluxation. He said that is what is causing my brain fog. He said my brain is only functioning at 30-40 percent because my neck and spine is tilted and therefore putting immense pressure on my brain stem and cutting off some of my blood supply and glucose that my brain needs. He said that it is pretty severe but he has seen worse. He said that since I am young he expects me to be able to bounce back after a few adjustments. He is an amazing doctor and not at all a chiropractor. He does not crack my neck at all but he presses on my atlas and tries to rotate it bAck to the correct position. I saw the X-rays myself and they do not look like a normal neck X-ray at all. The first time he adjusted me I was immediately better. No more brain fog or weakness. This lasted two days. He adjusted me again four days later and I did not feel better. I feel the same. Intense brain fog, so weak I can barely get out of bed. I have lost jobs because of this and can't even walk around the store without feeling like I am going to pass out. Blood work is normal. Ct scan and MRI of brain is normal. The upper cervical specialist says the atlas subluxation is making me feel this way. Is that true? I am very scared and worried about my deteriorating health. Please some insight. Anyone.
