Re: Accupuncture for FM/CMP ?
I went a few times (4). It cost me $120 the first visit and the following ones $80. My insurance does not cover it and I had a hard time feeling good about spending the money. I will say the times I went, I felt better anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes afterwards. I had read that if you aren't getting good results after 4 visits, then it may not be going to work for you. Don't know whether that is right or not, but the expense was more than my fibro nerves could take. So I had to balance out the feelings and came away with stopping. Someday if I have extra money to spend then maybe I will try it again.
Hello legallyblonded--I am a Karen also!
Hi Goldenwings! I DID feel VERY relaxed while it was going on--fell asleep. The guy I saw was an MD as well as accupuncurist (where is my spellcheck?) He said a lot of his patients fall asleep. Also some of the places hurt when the needles went in and some didn't. Some bled, some didn't.
