I'm thinking about going to afew acupuncture or culling therapy sessions, has anyone had experiences with these?
I've tried accupuncture and I think you'll definitely have to go more than a few times to have any sort of relief.
I am not sure it helped me much. I went for a very specific symptom that it was not able to get under control. I also found it to be very painful (apparently this means the needle was hitting a spot that needed release). Also, I was a little surprised at some of the locations he'd insert needles, so be prepared for them to go just about anywhere--top of feet, neck, face, chest, etc.
Tori Masten >= yes I have had great results with accupuncture!! I highly recommend it.. I just could not afford the weekly visits!!! Pain was greatly redused😀I have many medication intolerances so I am not on heavy duty meds if the pain gets real crazy😫😰😡I have naproxen 500mg and tizidine 2mg ..but neither is a daily occurance.i hold onto my meds and takes Otc.. Also a lot of stuff will cause gastric problems!! Then you"ll need a pill for that!!! It's a cycle...pill pill pill.... Over the years I have learned less is more !! If this makes sense when you have fibro with other things you build higher pain tolerances then non-fibro people!! Wellness to you😀🌺🌷🌼
Just like finding the right doctor, it was important to find the right Acupuncturist, who I could trust.
Upon two friends' referral, I went to one and received no benefit.
I later learned about an excellent Acupuncturist from a Chinese Medicine shop that I love. Both acupuncture needles and cupping worked for me, after only a few visits.
Fortunately, many insurance carriers are covering acupuncture, in and out of network.
Accupunture relieved my TMJ.
