Have pressure on sinuses and from temple to upper teeth. On medication. What to do?

Following an adjustment by a chiropractor on my neck I immediately developped crushing pressure on both of my sinuses (maxillary area) from temples to upper teeth.
The crushing pressure has now lasted almost three weeks, analgesics, muscle relaxants, anxiety medication (bromazepam) only seem to dull out the pain for a few hours.
I've been doing my research and it seems there was nerve impingement on trigeminal nerve, but on both sides?
What to do? I'm finding it more and more difficult to cope with this...

Hello.The pain of trigeminal nerve irritation is a pain like an electric shock, with tingling and changes in sensitivity of the area.
Is a possible diagnosis but you refers different pain (pressure in maxilary area).
Another possible diagnosis is that excessive manipulation has occurred bone lesion.Other diagnosis less likely is sinus infection (you would have fever, runny nose ....).Go to your doctor to valuation,for request a radiography of the area and establish a right diagnosis.
I wish you good health.
