Hi toast and welcome. I'm sorry your symptoms have been so bad. I haven't tried any alternative treatment, but I have thought about
it and have dome some reading about
it. I've read that some people have some pretty positive experiences with accupuncture and Chinese medicine, but you have to make sure you find someone who is qualified and well trained. It's also important that if you try these things that you need to let your doctor know to make sure that it won't interfere with any meds you are currently taking.
