  • I have ET and am on HU. I have recently had electro acupuncture for the arthritis in my knees. It did help with the pain and inflammation - plus no side effects! My GP did this, unfortunately he is leaving and none of the others do it. The effect is fading and the pain is coming back so I am going to pay privately to have it done and see if a regular session will help more. It could maybe help you too.


  • Hi Lizzziep, good your having acupuncture, i have had that in past via NHS through physiotherapist ,it really helped , im waiting to get an appoiment for physio ,im attending a few times a year when my sciactica flaires up and also my spondilitis in neck areas , the heam thought at first my raised platelets ( before i was diagnosed with ET jak2+ ) it was a ll down to my arthritis ,but i knew in my heart of hearts there was more wrong with me because my spine problems started over 27 year ago just gets worse with age . but hey ho im used to that now and cope best we can hope you feel some relief soon all the best Holly x

  • Hi holly so glad your platelet count not too bad. Hope your GP can help with the pain and that you can start to feel less anxious.
