Last Wednesday, I had my first accupunture treatment. I had a horrible headache for a good 24 hours after. I just had my second accupunture treatment today, and so far so good with not getting a headache.
I am hopeful that this will help me. Has anyone had success with accupunture? Any feedback is much appreciated. Thank you.

I have used accupunture for crohn's. I have used it for specific area's of pain (back, stomach, joints ect.) and for over all well being and chakra lining up. It isn't immediate relief but by a day or two I feel better. I had to drink lots of water after for a day or two also.

Good luck.

I have used it for pain contol and to get over a flare. Very happy with the results- highly recommend. It was also helpful getting me down of the pred high once I began tapering.


good luck and take care!

I've used acupuncture for my joint pain. It took several sessions but it worked well to keep the pain under control. I never really had much luck with acupuncture for my CD, but my acupuncturist has treated colds and headaches for me all with good results.

I have used acupuncture since I was first diagnosed in 2007 and it really helps with the pain and the symptoms. I highly recommend it. It doesn't work for all, but if it does, it's a lifesaver.
