Relief from 10 Years of Fibromyalgia
My name is Cindi U. I came to Abundance Acupuncture in June, 2012 because I was suffering from fibromyalgia, all over body pain, high blood pressure, asthma, and mood issues. I had these problems for over 10 years. These problems literally made my skin hurt! I was in intense pain almost all the time.
Hot flashes, mood swings, depression, restless legs, knee pain, and overall lack of energy made it difficult for me to do daily activities like house work. It was hard to find the energy to force myself go to work. Eventually I lost the desire to do the things I enjoyed the most including singing and playing my guitar which are my life passions.
I tried medications such as blood pressure meds, Prilosec, inhalers, antidepressants, prescription anti inflammatory drugs, and even narcotic pain killers for the fibromyalgia pain. None of them seemed to help and my pain and problems kept getting worse. I was repeatedly sent to physical therapy and also used chiropractic care with only minimal temporary results.
I began to feel significant improvements in my condition after only 6 treatments. At this point in time my condition feels 80-90% improved. The fibromyalgia pain is virtually gone! I am off of five of my medications! I used to take Prilosec daily and now I am down to only every 4 days or so. I plan to eventually discontinue its use completely. I no longer have mood swings or night sweats and my energy is back to do all the things I love to do. I have also had significant improvement in my restless legs, constantly feeling hot, not being able to tolerate summer, and the depression that came with having so much pain. All of these results were pleasant surprises.
My husband even asked if I was an imposter this summer due to the fact that it was one of the hottest on record and I wasn’t complaining about the heat. I feel like I have my life back and expect to continue to improve my health with acupuncture.
During the treatments I felt comfortable, relaxed, and most treatments found me napping. The clinic is a serene place to rejuvenate and improve your health and energy. The staff is fabulous! They are completely professional, knowledgeable, and truly have a passion to help people.
I would recommend acupuncture to anyone who thinks there is no help for their condition because it works. When I tell people I have had such great results from acupuncture they often ask me “isn’t it expensive?” My reply to that question is “I would rather pay 100% for something that works than 20% for something that doesn’t.” Abundance Acupuncture has truly changed my health and well being which has changed my life. How do you put a price on that?
