Welcome to the forum Janice
I used accupuncture for my head pain [see my dx below] for two years. Yes, it did work. Kept me at my job [62k] still cost 100.00 co-pay under my insurance and I never went off any of my medications. The treatments stopped the pain that always came in the afternoon.
The thing I found with accupuncture is, like chiropactors, it is a long term treatment, with no telling when or if you will find permanent relief. I had to stop the A treatment, when other illness caused me to retire.
I urge you to check certifications carefully and if you find the doctor gentle and caring, not hurried and impatient, then you most likely found a good one.
