I just had to share this. I went to my chiropractor last night for my monthly "tune-up". I was in extreme pain. She'd never seen me so bad. She suggested accupuncture before my adjustment - thought it would relax me enough to tolerate the adjustment. I had needles from my toes to the tip of my head (literally) (even one between my eyes and some in my ears). After laying still for 20 minutes I was in such terrible pain. She gave me a slight adjustment - I told her I didn't think I could stand too much. By the time I drove home (about 10 minutes) I was feeling better. By the time I sat down for dinner (SO has been cooking because he knew I'd been in such pain for the past few months) I was feeling even better. When I sat donw in the living room to read -- I couldn't believe it. It didn't hurt to hold the book. It didn't hurt to lift my glass of water. If I sat real still - NOTHING hurt! I actually sat there and cried. Tears of joy! I went to bed early hoping the effect wouldn't ware off too fast and I'd be able to get a good night sleep. I did need my heating pack on my neck 'cuz it was starting to stiffen up but I didn't need them on my knees or feet. I got a great nights sleep (for one of us sufferers) A straight SEVEN hours without waking up. Waking up, I felt better than I have in god knows how long. I'm at work now and my neck and shoulders are really starting to hurt but everything else is still much better. (Not as great as last night but better) I just had to let you know the wonderful relief I got. What works for one of us might work for another.
