I had accupuncture yesterday. I went in at a pain level of a 7 and when i left it was a 2!!!

My neck feels great compared to what is felt like! WOW> I was very much a skeptic but this is the best pain relief I have had in months! If you havent tried it you should.

Hi Melissa,

I am so happy that you are getting some relief from it! I love it too and really helps my pain as well.

Since I have become friends with my PM, he knows I don't have health insurance but has been giving me sessions once a week for many months which is thousands of dollars he has written off so I am truly blessed...

Do they put you in a nice dark room with candles and music? The nurses where I go just love to make that room nice and cozy for the patients which is sweet..

I really disliked the one time we tried with electrodes...yikes!!! Just not for me..LOL

It took me a few sessions to start feeling the effects as I was actually sore the first few times..but then it really kicked in and felt good all over..eased the muscle pain in my neck a lot..

I also get a HUGE energy burst from the treatments as well..it's like a wonderful sense of well being..

Sorry to go on about my experience..just wanted to share in the good news with you and encourage others to give it a try..

Doing a happy dance for you Melissa!! Big Hugs ((( )))

hmmm, I guess I always thought that acupuncture was alot of hype. This makes me think that it could be something to consider. Glad to hear of your success!!!!

bsjaguar I was righ tthere with you. my docs wanted me to try and I blew them off for months. I wish I had listened sooner. I guess I am just at the point anything that may help is worth a try.

I am super skeptical of these types of things, but it really made my neck pain disappear.

it has worn off over the last few days, but still better than before.

Melissa that is great news. I was in a car accident in the early 80's and injured my neck, basically a whiplash. After 3 months of PT with an orthopedic, I went to my sister's dr that did the Chinnese method of accupunctrure and he had me pain free in 9 visits. I wasted all that money on PT and the orthopod for nothing. So, yes it will work, but not everyone is a candidate for it. I know a lady that is doing it for her crohns disease and she is keeping it in check from the terrible pain she was having. I hope it continues to work for you.
 

crohns disease dx 2002 & small bowel resection, still looking for remission whatever that is, chronic pain 22 yrs, added ulcerative colitis 6-05 to the mix, high blood pressure 28 yrs, aortic heart valve insuffiency, depression, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis lumbar spine, scoliosis lumbar spine, peripheral neuropathy hands & feet, COPD & on oxygen therapy, lupus & psoriasis and psoratic arthritis. Several other health issues just not enough room to list it all. Too many surgeries to list and too many medications to list. Currently on 17 different daily medications. Intrathecal pain pump implanted June 05.

My sister convinced me to see her dr who did the Chinese method of accupuncture. He has me pain free in 9 visits and $350. I wasted all that time and money on PT and the orthopod. It can work for some people, it does not always work for everyone, but something I think that is worth trying anyway.
