So this was me yesterday. I have been suffering from major back spasm pains for the last three weeks and was desperate for relief. My wonderful friend, Karin, who's called me every day for the last three weeks to see how I'm doing and to find out if I need anything has been suggesting I give it a try. It did wonders for her father in law and her brother in law so she thought it'd be great for me. The only problem is: I HATE NEEDLES! Well, after suffering for so long and with no relief from muscle relaxers, Vicotin, heat, ice, exercises and lots of rest I finally gave in to her advice.
This is what she told me and what I've heard a million times from everybody else. Well, I just want to set the record straight for the rest of you, IT'S A LIE! I can tell you with all honestly that I felt every needle going into my back and it was not pain-free. I was also awake the whole time fully aware of lots of needles sticking in my back. It's also not pain-free when they pull those suckers out either.
I do have to admit that I felt a little better after the treatment and could actually stand straight up for the first time in weeks. I still have a lot of pain, but the cute Chinese lady told me it'd get even better after the next appointment. She asked if I wanted to book my next appointment then, but I told her I'd have to call her later. I'm trying to decide if it's worth the PAIN to try again or if I should just try something else. If anyone has any experience I'd love to hear it!
