Has anyone had Acupuncture done with electro stims

Hi all,
I have been supper busy busy. I have been seeing a new doc. Holistic type of doc, for few wks. It is doing wonders for me. He has started slowly and he took the time read thru my medical journal/ huge binder of notes, xrays all my mri's scans tests. He met with me and talked for long time, and he did exam.
He started out saying wants to get some energy back in me. Sort of wake my body up. He said I am or was extreme case. I go 3 x wk.
He does few acupuncture needles and then attaches wires. looks like tens unit but the wires are attached to the needles. He has on very mild setting. I fell asleep first time and did so last wk.
I have seen myself go from not being able to even sit and watch a tv show with family. I couldn't make it alone at the store. I was on several meds. from norco to flexerils.
Now if I have bad day I take few advils.

Tomorrow starts level 2. The first part was for energy, pain. Now he is going to start on more of the back.
I did last wk have a leg spasm so glad happened there, he got me on my stomach and he massaged out the knots lower backside omg hurt and I cried, but he calmed me down with my breathing. He said I have many many of those knots all over. I hope this next phase helps.
I spent yesterday all day out with my son. That hasn't happened to me in years. I usually can't move to much after 1 or 2 in day.

I did have a severe cold and told him over those few days I felt alot of pain, He said next time call him and he will get me in. It seems when I have a cough it tenses up my neck and mid back so that will cause my pain to flare up.
Tony I sure hope you find something that helps you out.

    I had it done last week. My osteopath does acupuncture and it helped me a bit. My case is not that bad, got a protruding L5/S1 disc compressing the nerve with mild back pain and sciatica when I cough, laugh and sneeze. It helped with the pain for a few days but more importantly it helped my mind a lot. I feel like a different person and can actually get up in the morning not wanting to kill myself anymore.
