Does anyone know if using the services of a chiropractor would/could exacerbate lupus symptoms?

After suffering over 2 months with sciatica, a friend convinced me to try a chiropractor. After 2 weeks of treatments it hasn't helped a bit and in fact I seem to be much more achey and out of sorts overall and my sciatica also seems more painful.

I wonder if all these manipulations etc can cause more lupus-like inflamation. Am I doing more harm than good?
