A pain after acupuncture Treatment.

This Friday I had a acupuncture appointment. My therapist (Is that right? how called someone who practicing acupuncture?) put Needles in my right and left hand and in my left and right foot - on the upper side of the foot and the inside (near the round bone).
I've waited for 30 minutes with the needled inside me and the only needle i felt was on the left inside foot.
Since then i have feelings of Streams (like an electric flow). It Gets worse when i'm Straightening my leg in a Flex position (The fingers goes up).
Is this normal? i've called to my therapist for a SOS meeting but i wanted to ask you too guys.

Thank you for answering,
Anna P.


  • Hi Anna, so sorry to hear about the pain. How about Chiropractor. Have you given it a try? The results are sometimes good, other times short lived.

    is another medical modality that can be administered by so many different people. I have seen it given by those that got a certificate from the back of a match book to fully qualified physicians. As with any treatment, the person giving it can determine how successful it may be.

    Coming from a long line of spinal and joint problems/surgery, I am not a big fan of chiropractors. They can handle muscular problems, but when it comes to the spinal cord, nerves, etc, that I would put my hands in a trained spinal or orthopedic specialist.

    The discomfort you describe generally is during the actual treatment session. Depending on how/where the needle is placed and the electrical stimulation, certain movements of your body can cause addition discomfort. But once the session is completed, I have never experienced the problems you stated.

    I would definitely call the person who gave you the treatment. The symptoms you are describing doe not seem normal to me.
