My sphenoid was adjusted by a chiropractor. Next morning woke up with a loud tinnitus. Will it go away on it s own or should I be concerned?

My sphenoid was "adjusted" by a chiropractor. When he shot the place in my upper mouth, it was a very strong hit and I heard a loud CRACK. I had never had this type of adjustment before so just thought it was normal. But, the next morning, i woke up with loud tinnitus. It seems like an electrical storm in my head, especially at the back lower skull area. I have light-headedness several times a day, especially with activity. I awake at night with a pounding heartbeat. It's been a couple of months like this. Will it go away on it's own or should I be concerned?

Hi Thanks for using HCM.

You are showing some signs that is to be concerned like loud tinnitus, electric storm in head, light headedness after hit by a chiropracter. There may be some fracture or dislocation or injury to soft tissue, So I suggest you for complete ENT and neurological examination by a doctor and if required some radiological investigation for complete diagnosis and management. I advice you not to go for Chiropractor since many procedures are not methodological which can even hurt many normal structure. Hope I answered your question. Wish you good health. Take care
