Just thought I would update you on my visited that I had to the hospital today.

I saw the specialist nurse about my headaches/migraines and she said I have to carry on with my medication that I am taking, she is making an appointment next week when the nurse who deals with it comes back off leave for me to have another top-up of acupuncture.

I had my last one back in March and I find it helps me but it does help everyone.

It should last for about 3 or 4 months Linda, but again everyone is different.

3 or 4 months is a great result, do you have to have a course of treatment or is it just one session? I'm interested as I wondered if it could work on my knees :hug2:

I had to have a course of six to start with and then after that you just have 1 treatment which they call a top-up. Hope this helps Linda! :hug2:

I've heard of people using botox for migraines. My aunt is doing this, but I have read about this approach other places as well.

I am as I was suffering really bad with them. Early last year before I started my treatment I had to have seven weeks of work with them, I couldn't get out of bed. :(

Have they ever done an MRI? One of our friend's wife had one to see if they could find the cause of her migraines and it turns out she has a deviated septum. They are going to operate and hopefully it will clear up the migraines.

accupuncture, that words scares me though I know it's really good for some people and it's brilliant that it's helped you. Migraines are so awful aren't they :hug2::hug2:

No they have never said anything to me about having one. I did ask my GP last year before I started having this treatment but he said they only do them if they think you have cancer or are bleeding from the nose. :thumbsdown:

I was scared at first, but after I had my first treatment it didn't bother my, you can't really feel the needles going in they are not painful. :)
