Accupuncture for pain.....


Recommended Posts

It has been recommended to me to consider accupuncture for the pain in my neck, shoulder area. I know some of the pain is degenerative but some I feel the lower shoulder blade is post radiation pain. Either way I am now on Vicodin, which I hate taking, and wonder if anyone else has had this done for pain. I cannot take the steroid injections, because I am still involved in the vaccine trial at the NIH, so that option is not available to me, just DRUGs... haha.. Help if you can... Thank-you..

I have heard a lot of people do get it for pain. It can't hurt to try. My mom had 1 session for the Iressa side effects and she said it was fine, didn't hurt. She stopped going for accupunture b/c she was done with thte Iressa.

I heard some people swear by it for pain
