Today, for the first time in my life, I was stuck with acupuncture needles.
I don't know why this freaked me out so much before. Maybe when I see people with needles sticking out of their face?
I only had needles in my left hand, and it temporarily made the 9 scale (I was asked to rate the pain from 1-10) pain in my right foot disappear. When he put that second needle in my hand and twisted it around until I said "YES, that is the point when it hurts", the pain was gone. I waited for a moment, thinking it might be the shock of having someone digging around my hand with a needle, but no, it was gone. I had 8 needles in my hand, and could feel the sensation both in my arm, and in my foot.
It was pretty amazing.
Now, the pain is back, but hopefully with a consistant treatment it will go and stay away. If not, I may have to run off with an acupuncturist......
