I've just stared the acupuncture treatments..like you all meds a bust....so far so good. He's using a 4 needle treatment to begin with. One in each foot, 1 in both arms between the wrist & elbow. Each person is different. You must be interviewed for the provider to find the correct points along your energy meridians. You will not even feel them. You may feel a slight electrical like pinch when they 1st go in. The needles stay in for 45 min. while you lay down in a relaxed environment. Don't know yet if it's the answer for me or not...something my wife had me try and at this point, it couldn't hurt. I'm tired of the drug side effects that are sometimes as bad as the headaches! At least with this treatment you don't have any side effects. This episode has been going on for 20 weeks now so I'm game to try ANYTHING! I will say that I haven't had a "pain spike" (over a class 5) since the treatment so maybe it is working. I have to go 2 times a week until he maps out my personal treatment. Will make additional posts when I make some progress. Good luck & give it a try.
