Trying Acupuncture for Fibromyalgia
Well, I've had 5 acupuncture treatments now over 5 weeks.
I don't feel the needles go in.
They are in my arms. legs and feet.
I enjoy the peaceful lying still even though I cannot move much. (I have to keep really still as I don't even really know where the needles specifically, just generally)
I feel better in myself after the 4th treatment - a wellbeing, positive, happy feeling like I know I can get better.
Improvements I've seen in 5 weeks:
My blocked head feeling halved after the first treatment.
I have not had the severe pain in my shoulders or hips for 5 weeks and I was getting it usually once a week.
My aches and pains in legs and arms feel distant - still there but distant.
I am not taking any meds (not even ibrofen or paracetemal).
I am not as tired. That extreme exhaustion has gone.
I no longer feel cold all the time
I have started sweating - I have not perspired for 20 years - this is a good thing.
My sore throat - usually constant - is sometimes gone.
So all in all, to me. these are amazing improvements from doing acupuncture.
