I went for my third week of electro acupuncture today and explained to the nurse that I felt that this time I had not really benefitted from the treatments so far but that I was happy to keep going in the hope it would give me more than just a placebo effect.
This time however, except for the needles in my right shoulder all hurt when she put them in and when she attached me to the machine I could only manage it on very low.
One of the needles felt so painful that I moved very slightly and the needle just shot out and also this time after the nurse took my needles out I bled in a couple of places and have already bruised from it.
This has never happened to me before and I must admit that when I got home I felt really lousy and my husband did say that I seem to be wasting my time with the acupuncture this time. What I don't know is why it has had this effect this time as previoulsy I have had pain relief from the electro acupuncture and was able to lower my meds for a bit, however this time I'm still on all the meds I was three weeks ago.
I don't know if anyone can give me a reason for this or have any thoughts as to whether I should just keep going until the end of the course, but any feedback is always appreciated.
