Has anyone with FM tried acupuncture? Did it make things better, worse, or did it not do anything?

    ive found dry needling is more effective than acupuncture but causes severe soreness 24 hrs, but otherwise has really loosened me up

    One thing that helped but hurts too is ear pellets. They embed these pellets in your ear on pressure points. It helps some but the application process is painful

    I did and didn’t notice a huge difference, however only went to one practitioner and I’m willing to try another sometime - if I can get a personal referral. If you decide to do it please not it’s recommended to try for at least 6 months consecutively.
