How long have you tried acupuncture? I ve read on average it takes 10 sessions to start to feel a difference.. It also matters on how many weeks apart your sessions are.

This discussion is related to Inflammation (numbness & pain) after eating.

Holistic medicine used to have a sort of rule of thumb -- for every year you've had a problem it takes a month of natural treatment to fix it.  But since everyone is different, some people get better with one treatment and others never get better from a particular treatment.  I'd say, don't have specific expectations, just give it a good shot and hope for the best.  Meaning, what others have experienced won't really have much meaning for you individually.
