Relief Finally - Part #4

Posted , 2 users are following.

I’ve gone to my new chiropractor here there over the last few weeks and things have gotten better.  I can turn my head in either direction now without having a bad “lingering” effect inside my head.   I can drive more confidently now.   I also started back up with Crossfit and have been going my normal 4-5 days a week without any issues.   I was in a inverted position for the first time since my attack a couple days ago and it didn’t re-trigger anything or make me feel dizzy.   I have full balance back as well.  I did Overhead Squats last night and for anyone that knows this movement, knows it takes some balance!  

My only issues to date is that “swimming” feeling in my head or feeling light headed every day.  Just different degrees of it   I feel the best after I work out…..  So this makes me believe, prolonged sitting in front of my computer screen is triggering most of this (My job involves computers) so I make sure to get up as much as possible and walk around….   So keep your chin up folks.  Things WILL get better!!!

 For me, moving around and getting back into exercising has been the best remedy.   I also drink peppermint tea daily (peppermint is good for the head) and put frankincense behind my ears and back of my neck to help with any ear issues.  If it was good enough for Jesus, it’s good enough for me  LOL

    Happy to hear that, we need to hear more positive stories! Frankincense, that's great. Have to try it, thank you.  Did you try Basil as an essential oil? Wondering if one works better than the other?

      HAHAHAHA  I like the scent of frankincense oil.  It's a nice musky earthy aroma and peppermint oil just smells good =)

      Another great smelling one is eucalyptus oil and that's great for allergies and opening up the sinuses.  I take a clean sponge, wet it and put a few drops on there and throw in the shower with me.  Creates a spa like environment.
