Hi all, So I decided to stop doing acupuncture for back pain. It’s been 40 weeks of therapy, every week for one hour and I didn’t feel much results form doing it. I realize that it’s only a distraction that I keep on because I’m too scared to stop doing it. Well it’s my 3rd week of not performing acupuncture for back pain and I’m sooo sore. I don’t remember when was the last time I was in so much pain. I also noticed pain in new areas, my knee, my bottom and back of the heel. I have no doubts that my symptoms are typical tms, I know that but it hurts so much. And it’s so scary! I think about seeing my acupuncture therapist and just get some quick relief - hoping that it will diminish the pain even a little bit. As a side note I’m also very stressed at this time of my life so maybe this wasn’t the right time for such a radical step. Maybe I should move it forward in the future and don’t put more in my stress bucket now. Please, let me know if the symptoms that I’m experiencing now are something common? Even muscle on my occipital bone are sore at the time.
