Acupuncture ??

Hello

Me again. In the thick of it just now and when I visited doctor last night she told me if it’s confirmed I have ms to try acupuncture via a proper doctor.

Interested to find out people’s views on it? Does it help in any way?

Thanks suz

Acupuncture for what? Sorry, I don’t understand. Don’t get me wrong; I have had good experiences with acupuncture for a specific non-MS-related injury that was slow to heal so it not like I’m against it, but that was a very specific problem. I’m not sure the vague ‘try acupuncture’ advice is any more helpful than saying ‘try a pill’ without specifying which one! But maybe the advice was a little more targeted than that. I hope so.

Well I am super tired beyond belief and I broke down in docs in tears last night with frustration. So I take it something to do with that x

Hi I have a friend who has acupuncture regularly for her ms - not sure why - but she says its amazing and wouldnt be without it, its her monthly fix. Ive never tried it so cant say anything from experience

Great thank you

Hi, I tried acupuncture a few times…it did zilch for anything!
But, you never know, it might help you.

Cool thanks x mix of reviews on it

I tend to agree with Alison, it seems a bit vague, however, I also see that doing anything which might be beneficial is worth a go. I am a bit of a cynical techie, so acupuncture always seemed a bit “wacky” until I tried it to help with migraine, and it proved to be very good for me.
Good luck

Suzy, has your MS Team prescribed Fampridine? Both this medication and acupuncture can help with MS fatigue for some of us.
