    Hi Jenny, I think you will find that quite a lot of us have had acupuncture for various types of pain. It seems to be successful in many cases - mine was for head, neck and shoulder pain and worked wonders during one very bad winter.

    I'd get more any time I could!

    I've had regular acupuncture sessions for over a year. Mine are given by my Physiotherapist at the local hospital and I'd be lost without her. I find it a great help especially with my neck pain. I hope it helps you. Good luck.

    Hey,

    I've had it for a few different things and found that it helped 2 conditions but not the other one. So go for it!!
