I have been going for accupuncture for about a month now, and can't belive I am in less pain. My spasms in my rt shoulder are considerably less, you can touch my shoulder without me screaming! My rib cage is also less painful. He is only working on my rt shoulder and rib cage right now, and said that after 2 months it should be at least 50% better. I have to admit, it's been a month and I am in less pain then I can remember being in for years. I have had a lump of muscle spasms that is visible in the back of my neck for many years. Now after a month of accupuncture it is still there, but it's decreased in size so much I can't believe it. I am not sure if it is visible to other people now, or if it can only be felt. I wouldn't wear my hair up in the summer because this lump of muscle looked as though I had a tumor on my neck it was so big. One doctor who I saw made me go for a CT scan for it because he thought I was wrong and it wasn't a muscle spasm.
Anyway, just thought I would let you know that this is helping me...
