A little about me, for those of you who don't know- I've been having chronic and severe back pain with extremely limited mobility not even being able to tie my own shoes. I've tried pills, rest, physical therapy and seen a ton of specialists. No luck at all. the pain has also been exacerbating my insomnia. Well, NO MORE (i hope). I saw an acupuncturist today for the first time. Going in I was hoping it would help but didn't expect it to. But it helped, so much. I tied my own shoes, picked a cup up off the floor with out bending my knees and can once again touch my nose to my toes. The pain isn't totally gone. But it's like a 4, and after two months straight of never being below a 7 it's like a miracle. I know acupuncture doesn't work for everybody, but it has really helped me. And I don't have to take more pills. I tend to be into alternative treatments, I like to meditate, I take flax seed oil for my depression (along with antidepressants), I love yoga. So maybe it's psychological, and here are still things I can't do like I can barely lift any weight, but it's deffianently worth a try. And the needles don't hurt. I'm pretty fearless in terms of needles but all you feel with these is a slight prick- much less then getting blood drawn or receiving a shot.
