Accupuncture and fibro?

Nov 29, 2015 7:48 AM

Im doing accupuncture for my fibro ,which i also have frozen shoulder which isnt uncommon for fibro patients. Ive done 6 treatments so far and its helped more then the conventional way of treating frozen shoulder. (Done both ways now) has anyone else done this way of treatment? I still take nuerotin and parofon forte for break thru muscle pain . Thank you for your time

I have only done PT for mine, but they were impinged and not frozen. I'm glad you're having positive results. If my insurance would cover it if definitely try it for several issues. 🙏🌼

Flappys I've done it also and I actually want to do more. One Dr prescribe it when he had no idea what was wrong with my shoulder. It helped since I was unable to move my arm below my breast line. And now I can at least appear to have more swing just can lift anything more then 4 lbs without pain and can only lift as high as between my chin and too of my breast line. I hate this. My Dr now is so focused on my other issues he is treating my shoulder as an after thought. Told me to just use wall stretches for my arm. Acupuncture makes me a little nervous.. I'm on the fence

I don't have fibro but I have been going for acupuncture on and off since 2003. I had severe GERD took meds for it, changed my diet, and slept elevated. I had it for two years straight and I had around 36 weekly treatments of acupuncture in Malaysia and it went away. When I was going through severe depression and having uncontrolled crying bouts they taped bird seeds to the upper section of my ears and told me to press them when I start to cry and it would help me stop the cry.
Currently I am going for my anxiety, circulation improvement and RSD in my foot. And they have given me herbs to soak in. That has helped as well. We have a acupuncture school nearby here in the San Francisco bay area and they charge $20 a visit. Students work on you under the DR's supervision. I have taken my children for acupressure massage and herbal heat treatment as my daughter had leaky gut syndrome when she was a toddler. It cured my daughter from that. My autistic son enjoys the deep pressure massages there but I havent taken him in a couple years as I can do them at home and save $. Anyway just wanted to share my experiences with it.

I've only had money for three sessions this far but they made a big difference during a high pain time and a month long migraine. I do hope to continue to go
