I don't know much about bulging discs but I'm pretty sure you can have acupuncture as often as required without it causing problems. I've had it done three times a week as a rule, but also twice a day a few times, after a neck injury several years ago.
I'm glad you were able to get in for trigger point injections so quickly...don't you love it when medical personnel work WITH you instead of against you! Take care and I hope you're feeling good soon!
