My Experience with Acupuncture for Migraines

I have heard a few people complain about migraine headaches in the past, but I honestly did not understand just how awful they are until I had my first one. The throbbing was enough to make me want to scream, but I didn’t. I just rolled myself up in a ball and laid on my bed for hours until it subsided. I had another one a few months later, and a pattern soon developed. My husband had been looking online to find some answers, and that is how he found a Chicago acupuncture clinic that he wanted me to try.

I had never had acupuncture before, but I think it is something that most people at least know about. I was concerned about going to this clinic and having long needles inserted into my head. My husband assured me that it was not going to be like that. He had done a lot of research before even telling me about it, and he had also talked to someone at the clinic itself. The purpose of acupuncture is for the blood vessels to dilate, but this could make a migraine even worse.

Because of this, the acupuncture needles are inserted in the lower section of the body, and it had the same results as other conditions. Even though I only got maybe five or six migraines a year, I was so ready for them to stop occurring, so I went to the acupuncturist that my husband read up on. All I can say is that I wish we had done this research earlier, because it helped me more than I ever would have thought possible. I cannot even remember the last time I had a migraine headache now. If I hear anyone else complaining of one, I tell them about my experience with acupuncture so they can find relief too.
