WOW! Thanks! I will try it. I use a wellness doctor and she uses acupuncture. I also know a chiropractor that uses acupuncture. That is wonderful that you have found something that works! I'll sure give it a try. I did acupuncture probably 10-15 years ago before I had fibro. No harm in giving it a try!
Stay well and pain-free!

I am also from Northern Indiana and would be interested in knowing who your rheumy doc is? Not in love with mine. No pain meds to help get through flares.

Anjil, have you looked at the abstracts in the research section at NFA? The most recent listing was in 2008. The best way to use these listings is to find topics you are interested in and then use those topics to access PubMD and find more current research on those specific areas.

I am interested in the brain and its changes in fibromyalgia. We have many subtle differences from those who are normal and even from those who have osteoarthritic pain but no FM.

I truly believe that studying these changes can lead to correcting our chemical imbalances with medications that go right to the basis of fibro and do not give us any of the many side effects most of us cannot tolerate.

If we want to know what is happening in research NOW, we have to see what has been published in the past year, not the past decade.
