I just started acupuncture treatment for chronic pain. I'm very hopeful that I will see some results. Has anyone here tried acupuncture? If so, was it successful? How often were your treatments? I'm really curious to learn of others experiences. Thanks!

I had acupuncture done and honestly didn't notice a change. In fact, my pain got worse over time (and here I am searching for more information on my medical situation). Good luck to you. I bet results vary according to each person and their state of consciousness. Hope you feel better soon, either way. :)

I'm sorry it didn't work for you; I hope you find some answers to your situation soon. I'm also in a medication based program & have seen good (not great) results. You might consider exploring that route, if you haven't already.
I'm sure you're right, and, results vary per person. I'm hopeful that I'll see improvement, but, nothing so far. I'm going to try it for awhile & see what happens. Thanks for replying!

A few months ago I had severe jaw pain due to a cracked tooth which I didn't know I had. Thought is was TMJ.   My neighbor is a chiro and does accupuncture.  The day I had the accupuncture I was in excruciating pain.  I almost cancelled the appt.  I went in at 4pm and when I left his office it felt alot better but still noticed the pain. As the night went on the pain diminished and was gone the next day.

it was amazing.  I suffered for weeks with this pain and in one session it was gone.  My MIL also had some ear pain that also went away with accupuncture.
