Strange symptoms.

I started having chest discomfort two months ago, and the hospital found nothing wrong with my heart. After dismissal and no discomfort three days later, I then began having headaches. CT scan and spinal tap were negative.

Upon advice, I went to a chiropractor. Hours after making two subluxation adjustments, I had fever (up to 101F), chills, tachycardia (85-120 bpm), and high blood pressure (145/105) for 5 days.

All of this is very abnormal, as I am in tip-top shape and mountain bike 3x/week for 10-15 miles at a time (regluar 65 bpm, 110/70 bp, 145 cholesterol).

The headaches have mostly subsided, but now I get the occasional "warm" feeling, like I have a fever, but I'm actually below 98.6F. I also get sporadic "muscle" pains in random spots, areas which usually don't have any trauma or use.

No one in cardiology, neurology or general practice has a clue. The only thing found was a possible elevated Candida infection, but nothing off the charts from previous blood work.

Could this be a parasite?

  • Are the muscle pains like cramps? from limited oxygen to the muscle?

  • No, not like oxygen insufficiency. It's like an ache from overuse. It actually reminds me of fever-like symptoms in the muscles.

  • When you get the warm feeling, is your face flushed?

  • No face flush with the warm feeling. Thanks for the feedback, everyone. Does the flu flare up with chirporactic adjustments? That's a new one to me.

  • You said you mountain bike-have you been checked for Lymes disease?It might sound strange-but have you also thought about trying treatment for the candida infection and seeing if it makes a difference in the symptoms?Its so strange that a chiropractic adjustment would flare up these symptoms
