Hi Kamden,

you seem to be the go-to person here. I have a question about trigger point therapy. I went to a neurologist and wanted to ask about trigger points and the possibility of that affecting me in the way that I had numbness on the left side of my face and a lot of vibration sensations and dizziness in my head that related to movement of my body. A chiropractor has helped me get through it thus far, but it has been a lengthy recovery and not a comfortable one. My chiropractor is good and works the muscles a little before just working my bones around into place. He said my neck was out pretty bad.

I have horrible knots in my neck and shoulders that sometimes when I put pressure on them, make things in my head snap or release (at least that's what it feels like). I'm also now on anxiety medication which I think will probably help. I have a lot of mental illness in my family and have an extremely stressful existence (about to change signficantly). I don't know if it will fix what's going on with the vibrating/dizzy spell stuff but, it certainly may help me deal with it better.

I had my latest chiro manipulation on my neck tonight. They are getting easier to take and with each one I seem to get better. But, this trigger point therapy really has me curious because I just wonder if there are several things going on at once here. How do they even check for trigger points? I went to a neurologist who specializes in trigger point therapy -- but his bedside manner leaves much to be desired and he didn't even seem open to questions. I'd probably find someone else. Do you know if trigger points can affect your sinuses even?

Thanks for your time in answering my message. You must be out her a lot -- are you an MD? You're really smart and would love to hear what you have to say. Thanks again!
