Just wondering if anyone has tried acupuncture and what symptoms were helped by it...

I use it all the time. It really helps me with pain. I have severe neck, shoulder and back pain, and it really makes a difference. If you try it, I sure hope it helps you!

I have to say I tried this but it didn't help me but I know others who use it frequently & it helps them.

I tried it last year when the doctors told me I had fibromyalgia. I was not diagnosed with Sclero then. It seemed like I hurt more the day of it, but felt better the day after. I did it three times but I could not afford to keep doing it and my insurance would not cover it.
