PMS, Infertility, and Headaches

 Abundance Acupuncture has helped me with a number of different health concerns: frequent headaches, Premenstrual Syndrome, and fertility issues.  The headaches and muscle tension in the neck and shoulders started over 9 years ago. Whenever I was stressed out I would get increased tension which would lead to a headache.  Then I would get stressed out because I had headaches, which would lead to more headaches, and it became a vicious cycle.  When I was taking birth control pills I had headaches every day, but even after I got off of the pill I had headache at least twice a week.  They were worse before my period and whenever I was stressed out.

I went to the doctor and they gave me an antidepressant which worked for the first year or so and then it stopped working.  Then they tried increasing the dose for a few weeks and that didnít help so I stopped taking it altogether. I ended up taking Advil and tried relaxation techniques and yoga.  When I started having acupuncture I was really hoping that it would work because I had tried so many other thingsÖ  Now I know that it works.

I had a wonderful response to the acupuncture treatments and I noticed improvements right away after the first treatment.  The biggest difference I saw was the relief from the tension in my neck and shoulder.  The tension used to be there all the time but, now if I feel some tension I notice it right away and I can usually relax it before it builds up.  Iím overall more relaxed than when I started treatments and because of that I donít seem to worry about things as much as I used to. 

My Premenstrual Syndrome started when I had my very first periods and I was miserable seven to ten days before each of my periods. With the treatments I noticed a number of changes in my monthly cycle. I stopped feeling nauseous when I ovulated.  I had less PMS irritability, water retention, and breast tenderness. I didnít have the headaches, my cramping was reduced, and when I did have the cramping it was gone right away with the treatments so I didnít need to take any medicineÖwhich was nice.  Actually since I started with the treatments I havenít needed any medicine at all.  Even the cold I had was alleviated by the acupuncture.

 My husband and I were trying to have a baby and we had a number of concerns about our fertility.  Through acupuncture I relaxed my body so it was more accepting to getting pregnant.  In any case it worked!  Iím pregnant! 

The clinic has a very comforting atmosphere and I felt that everyone who worked there all wanted me to get better.
