I'm just posting this to see if anyone can relate. First off, I've had acupuncture about 5 times before, so I know what it should be like. I went to a new lady yesterday (who is qualified. she has her doctorate in acupuncture). When she put in the PC6 point in my left wrist, I felt like it hit a nerve. I said "ow that really hurts!!" (which I never would have said if it was just a sore pain) and she said that's because it's a good spot for you. Then, she left and I spent the 30 minutes in excruciating pain fighting back tears. When she took it out I told her it bothered me the whole time and she laughed it off and said nothing's wrong and it would have only hit a nerve if put in by a careless acupuncturist who used deeper and bigger needles. BUT I KNOW WHAT I FELT. Starting last night I have experienced numbness and tingling in my left foot, difficulty moving my arms and fingers, pain in random spots where needles weren't even put in, an uncomfortable sensation in my arm, weakness, and random twitching: NERVE DAMAGE SYMPTOMS. Today I called her and she said "pain in the site is normal" but it's not pain! It's issues with my nervous system! Is she in denial? I asked another acupuncturist and he also said the same thing: that it probably just means "I'm too deficient for acupuncture." But I've had it before when it went great! I went to my primary doctor and she said that it's nerve irritation. It will heal, she said, and she's seen it before from acupuncture. I also found similar posts on the internet about PC6 and nerve pain. So why did this acupuncturist laugh me off? If I say I felt a needle hit a nerve and I've felt issues within my nerves ever since then, shouldn't I be taken seriously? I know what I feel. I'm struggling to walk, move my arms, drive, and hold things because my nerves feels messed up. Also, my doctor even diagnosed it. I cringe/hold back tears every time I think about the feeling of that needle first going in & when I pay attention to how my arm feels. Has anyone else had a similar experience?
