Reply To: Acupuncture / Traditional Chinese Medicine?
I tried acupuncture as an alternative but so little difference. It did seem to stop some for the firing and burning but my CIDP which is in my lower legs and feet is also being treated with IVIG treatments – 4 hour drip every 5 weeks. I’ve been treating my CIDP with IVIG treatments since October of 2009. I thought I’d try acupuncture because going to treatments is getting old. I was diagnosed with a servere case of GBS in 2004, totally paralyzed except not intubated. Spent 100 days in the hospitals and the outpatient rehab. I had a set back in October of 2009 after gall bladder surgery so I didn’t make the 5 year window and was diagnosed with CIDP. I would like to seek alternative methods of treatments because my out of pocket cost for IVIG that insurance doesn’t cover is too much for me.
