(((((((((Snowflake)))))))))). Acupuncture works wonders for some people. It made a big difference in the inflammation in one of my shoulders after multiple surgeries. Stick with it a little longer if you can, sometimes it takes several sessions/a couple weeks before you notice a difference.
Just a thought -- Have you ever seen an osteopath for cranial-sacral work? They are kind of like chiropractors/massage therapists/energy healers with a MD (except they are DO's). They believe that by making minute adjustments & restoring the natural position of the body, disorders like chronic pain can be improved. I didn't know much about
osteopathy when I began seeing an osteopath & I was really impressed by him. I saw him for a couple months & I did notice a small difference in my pain. I think it would have increased with time, but I had to stop seeing him due to money issues and his
location (a 6 hr round trip from my college!). Maybe an osteopath would be able to help you with some of your pain.
Hope you're feeling better today!
