Recently, I tried acupuncture for the 1st time. Has anyone else tried this? The 1st treatment actually increased my pain. I was very uncomfortable for 3 days. But then I went back. And wow, I felt SO MUCH BETTER after the second treatment. The relief only lasted for a couple of hours, probably because I didn't rest afterwards. But to be down to about a 2-3 on the pain scale for even 2 hours was amazing. Going back for another treatment in a few days. Am anxious to see how long the relief might last if I keep it up. Always looking for something to ease the pain. Good luck to all in your searches too!
