Does anyone use natural product or acupuncture for MS symptoms ?

Please help with symptoms. I've recently been diagnosed with MS. I have symptoms of buzzing and tingling in my feet, legs etc. I don't want to take more meds (started on copaxone) I'd like to try something natural such as CBD oil or acupuncture but need any advice for what stops the crazy buzzing/tingling and what works. I appreciate any help. Thanks

Before even considering "CAM" I would suggest watching the Harriet Hall science based medicine series that can be found on YouTube. There are many disingenuous people who prey upon the fears of others. I call them Snake Oil Salesmen who spread false hope that are only out to line their pockets from the misery and  hopes of people in search for a cure. As flawed as it may be Science Based Medicine is our best hope. Although many people believe in acupuncture it has been proven to be just pseudoscience. I have watched videos of instances where they just pretended to do acupuncture and the results were the same as when they actually do the process. It is considered a placebo effect. I am a natural born skeptic and research these things often.
