I am new on this board but have had Fibro for many many years.
Just got back from my GP after my 4th round of accupuncture yeah I find it is fantaastic for my back and neck. I still get stiff if I dont move around but otherwise my back, shoulders and neck are pain free at the moment. Unfortunately my course is only 2 more sets for my back and neck.

Just wondering what "long term" success others have had with acccupuncture

I've never tried accupuncture so I can't relate, but I did want to welcome you to this site.
I have read other post of ppl that have tried it so you will probably be hearing from some of them.
God Bless!

Hi fighter. I am thinking it must work for others because the pain clinic that is treating fibro offers accupuncture. Although I have heard that it works more by stimulating nerve endings than by helping the flow of chi. There are probably a lot of theories out there about how it works. But if it works for you, great!!!

Welcome to the group, btw,

Well, I like acupuncture but it is not a major pain reliever in my case. However, I find it very relaxing. I always want to stay on that table to catch up on some sleep.

Hi, and welcome!  I'm glad you found us!  You have come to a good spot.  We have great people here with good ideas to help you with your journey with fibro.
I'm so glad it is helping you.  I tried it but it didn't help with the fibro and it was quite expensive.  BUT, I'm hearing impaired and I did get some hearing back!
Be sure to check out the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum.  There are links to good info about fibro.  I'm glad you joined in and hope to hear more from you soon.

I tried it for neck and shoulder and it definately worked but it was to expensive to continue and the pain was back quickly but I must aadd I hadnt been doing it for long. Wish I could do it again. :-) :-)
