So I had my first ever experience of acupuncture tonight. It was OK! I didn't mind the needles. I was lying on my stomach which is not my favourite position, but it wasn't like being in an MRI tunnel; I could move around and get more comfortable. Has it made any difference to my back and shoulder arthritic pain? Not that I can tell, not yet. Going for more next week. It might take a while to kick in maybe? Or be cumulative? Does anyone have more experience of it than me? (Hardly difficult as I have none except today!)

I know that it does not work well for gout which is an arthritic condition.

I think I am skeptical enough to assess for myself and not be conned into thinking things are working when they aren't. But so far everyone I have spoken to has said acupuncture has helped them enormously with ailments from hayfever to anxiety and pain relief is my only goal here. I know if I am in pain and if not. So far it has made no difference, but I will give it a go for six sessions and see.
