Hey everyone!
 
I've been a migraine sufferer since I was about 16 (I'm  now  30). Lately, my migraines have been getting more frequent, so I decided to give accupuncture a go!
 
I usually use Imigran (Imitrex in the US I think) and Ibuprofen to control them, but since I'm suffering a couple of times a week nowadays, I wanted to see if anything else would help me, so I wouldn't have to pop so many pills.
 
I had my first session 4 days ago. It was a bit of an eyeopener! I really wasn't expecting much, but when I woke up the following morning, I felt amazing!
 
I've got another session booked for a couple of weeks time and I can barely wait!
 
Has anyone else had any relief from having accupuncture? I'd be interested to hear how you got along.
 
Also I've  got a great book from the library called 'Migraines for Dummies' which is proving helpful too - loads of useful info - I'd recommend reading it.

*UPDATE*

I have continued to have acupuncture, and I do think that it's helping with the migraines.

Also, it makes me feel so relaxed, which I think is wonderful, as my migraines are always worse when I'm stressed. :-)
