oops, why didn't this post in Medical forum? sorry, all.
There is a limit to how many questions can be posted to the Dr's forum each day. I believe it is two. It is sometimes quite hard to be one of them, but keep trying.
Welcome to our forum. Look forward to getting to know you!
A friend who still views the forum but no longer has an ID to log in and post sent a message and asked me to post this for her...
"Acupuncture is very good in helping with the side effects on the various treatments especially auricular acupuncture. Although, there are no conclusive scientific facts, there is alot of evidence to support that Acupuncture helps with pain and in theory it may be able boost the immune system."
Thanks for the info! I'm not having much pain, just some neuropathy in feet and hands. Acupuncture sounds luxurious and relaxing - might have to sign up for some!
I did a 10 part session of acupuncture a little more than a year ago for some knee pain. Not sure if it actually helped the pain, but the sessions themselves were extrememly relaxing. Each one lasted about 30-45 minutes. My entire body felt heavy, like I couldn't move even if something was chasing me. But it was the most comfortable feeling. I think I slept through most of it. The needles themselves didn't hurt at all. Just a little *****, but it almost felt good. Anyway, I agree...even if just for the relaxation, it's worth it.
