First of all I am going to investigate the ancient Chinese system of Acupuncture in which fine needles are inserted in the skin at points along lines of energy called meridians. .Has anyone tried acupuncture for their fibromyalgia? I would love to hear from you.
This is amazing information about Fibro and Acupuncture: A trial, conducted by the Mayo Clinic, found that acupuncture "provided significant improvements in a variety of symptoms associated with fibromyalgia, with the effects of care often lasting several months". ACUPUNCTURETODAY
|I am trying acupuncture to reduce the pain and fatigue of fibromyalgia.|
In this trial 50 patients who had tried other treatments for relief, without success, either had acupuncture or simulated acupuncture. They were not told which treatment they received. After 6 sessions they reported improvement in symptoms of pain, anxiety and fatigue. I personally do not get anxiety but have decided to try acupuncture for my pain and fatigue. I will keep you posted.
I would love to know what alternative therapies you have tried. I have sometimes used homeopathy, magnets, meditation, diet, and my favourites myofascial massage and hydrotherapy.
