Acupuncture?

Acupuncture?

My doctor wants me to try some Acupuncture. The idea makes me nervous and they didnt actually make it sound pleasent. Anyone done it before? Does it hurt?

Breaking the skin sends signals to the brain that there's been an injury. I've been told that triggers a fibro flare.

It made me sooo much worse and the needles going in and waiting to take out were excruciating. I bleed and had bruising. It made all my symptoms much worse and terribly expensive. Some people love it. But if you don’t like it first time, don’t keep doing it and waste money.

Yes I’ve had acupuncture twice and each time I felt really good after for about 3 weeks so it really is good and it doesn’t hurt just like a pin prick but some acupuncture’s r more gentle than others 😊
