Tried Acupuncture Today
Thursday, December 01, 2011
When I woke up this morning, my right hip and leg were feeling a lot better. Just having my "usual" pain on the left side from the sciatica. If I have to have one or the the other, the left side pain is the lesser of two evils. I'm still going to take it easy the next couple of days and try to stay off my feet when I can.
I did some of my Peggy Cappy yoga dvd for my workout today. I thought I'd better play it safe though and do just the upper body stuff; usually that part is done in a chair, but I sat on my stability ball to do it today.
I've had a mild sinus headache all day, and a queasy tummy part of the day too. Went to my radiation treatment as usual. After that, I had the acupuncture. I had 5 needles in each ear. They did not hurt hardly at all going in, it was more of a ticklish sensation than a painful one, and once they were in, I couldn't really feel them. There were 3 of us getting it done today, including my mom. Our needles were left in for half an hour. It was very relaxing. My sinuses started to drain after about 20 minutes, which was a good thing, with my headache. I was told some of the good effects won't be felt til later, but I'd probably sleep a lot better tonight. I still felt kind of queasy when I left, but I just now noticed that the queasiness is gone, could be that's from the acupuncture too. I would definitely do this again! And I probably will.
