So my left arm has been randomly going numb for several weeks now!!! It usually doesnt last more than an hour at a time though. Yesterday it lasted ALL DAY!!!! I had enough!!!! I called a chiropractor and made an appointment (my first ever chiro appt.) So the appt went good. He was really nice and cracked me a few times.... shocked me with some electricity (just LITTLE ones... not full electro!! LOL) pounded me with some hammer thing and did some really nice ultrasound heat thing. Yet it STILL is bugging me. Now keep in mind I am NOT giving up on him. He did warn me that sometimes it will take a few visits and I have another one on Wednesday. I was just hoping for a miracle cure kwim. Anyway.... he mentioned that he also does acupuncture and there is a treatment he can do just on that shoulder. I am CURIOUS to try it!! LOL (heck when your arm is numb for days at a time you get desperate!) I am just wondering if any of you have tried or have any acupuncture stories for me!? Good OR bad!!! I know that 'alternative' medicine can be a touchy subject but I am wanting some info before I let them stab me up with needles!!! LOL. So...... any opinions??? I thought this chatty place would be the perfect place for answers! lol
