Trying Acupuncture for Fibromyalgia

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.

    These sound quite amazing in 5 weeks - have you continued? What is happening now?

    I too have had some relief through accupuncture, but as my problem gets exasberated by changes in barometric pressure, and the accupuncture only tends to help for a few days, as soon as a weather change comes about again, its the same old same old and I cannot afford time off work too often or I may well not have a job.
    I am now on 4 DHC tabs per day, and these help dull the aches and pains.....but dont help the foggy brain or tiredness.
    Never the less, I get to accupuncture as often as I can.
