Does acupuncture really work??!!

I have not blogged in awhile. I would like to, but these chronic sinus infections make me sooooooo tired. 

I seem to have one every fall (and spring) for about 6-7 weeks. Last year at this time I had sinus infection after sinus infection............and here it is, fall again. Sick again.

Someone suggested I try acupuncture. Has anyone tried this? I think the needles would hurt. But the netti-pot, nasal spray, decongestants, avoiding dairy, etc is not working! I really should see an ear, nose and throat dr, but the health system here is a bit different and I have found it hard to get a referral.

Any tips?


Hope you're having a great week and have avoided any sinus/cold/flu stuff!

Yikes- the needles would scare me- BUT if nothing else is working, maybe it's worth a shot- hope you are better soon!

My husband had acupuncture a few years ago to help with his back, he said it didn't hurt it felt tingly. Apparently it worked for him for a while and the pain in his back was gone for a while. Good luck with it all.

I'm so sorry. My cousin lives with sinus infections too. I don't know how you can function. I've had a few in my adult life, and they were not fun. Take care.

I have tried acupuncture for allergies and it was AWESOME. The needles really don't hurt. Have you seen an ENT?

Thanks ladies, I may have to go back to the dr.......I've been sick for too long now.

Jennifer, I'm hoping to see an ENT dr, but I usually get turned away at the dr here in the UK.
