FIBROMYALGIA

May 7, 2008
When I was first diagnosed with fibromyalgia 5 years ago, I was in a lot of pain, but when I found Dr. Jin I received fast results. Now, not only pain symptoms are under control, I'm overall better, emotions, physical, mental, everything. ~D. S.

In 1998, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Previously, I had been a very physically active young woman -- I participated in rollerblading, racquetball, aerobics, skiing, jogging, hiking, etc. For the last year these activities were forced to stop because pain in my back made simple tasks like making a bed nearly unbearable. My legs hurt so severely that even walking short distances left me in tears. Every morning I would wake up dreading the moment my feet would hit the floor, knowing the few steps into the bathroom would send unbearable pain through my legs. The pain became progressively worse and spread through other areas of my body. I began to gain weight and feel depressed. I have different experiences during treatment. Sometimes I fall deeply asleep. Often my body will be totally relaxed, yet will jerk suddenly when my qi begins to move. This times it feels as though I'm almost in a trance, awake but strangely immobile. I always feel completely at ease and look forward to my treatments. I have so much hope of resuming many of the activities I love. When before I would wake up feeling as though I hadn't slept a wink, I now wake up renewed. I no longer feel the searing pain in my legs and back that used to reduce me to tears regularly. I cannot find the words to describe how much acupuncture has changed my outlook. Before I had lost all hope of ever becoming my old self. After only two weeks of Dr. Jin’s treatments, my pain was reduced about 75%. After three months of regular visits, I rarely experienced any pain. I still have lower back pain occasionally but it is definitely manageable and seeing Dr. Jin every four to eight weeks to keep it under control.  In addition to the pain reduction, my body's immune system feels stronger than ever -- I rarely suffer colds and haven't had the flu since I began receiving acupuncture treatments. The quality of life I had been accustomed to have been returned to me. Acupuncture is the answer for me and I recommend Dr. Jin to anyone who suffers from chronic pain. I was very skeptical at first -- now I am a true believer. I am also glad to be able to live without painkillers; I didn't want to have to rely on harmful drugs just to get through the day. I haven't taken any painkillers since I began acupuncture and I don't plan to. Thank you, Dr. Jin, from the bottom of my heart.  ~ S. W.
