Hi Pat! So sorry to hear about your sister! Accupuncture has been around for hundreds of years. And it is used in so many illness’s and used quite often for pain. I know a few people that get these treatments and they do great getting them. Me! I hate needles and just can’t get the nerve to try it out. But so far what I have heard. Accupuncture really has not caused to many problems in the medical field. But this is an old Chinese medicine that has been practiced a very long time.
It is too making a comeback into the medical field. I don’t think there is any harm to having that. A vaccination on the other hand I would not reccomend. It is scary after loosing a sister that had GBS and it gives you a fear of catching it also. Being alert to it though is a good thing. At least you may be able to protect yourself from getting it!
I wish you my best and give you my deepest sympathy over the loss of your sister! Hugs
Hi Pat! Welcome to the site and I am so sorry to hear about your sister being so ill! Not an easy thing to go through being sick. I have not had any IVIG’s just yet but there are several in here that will be in here soon, that might be able to help you answer your questions. But I wish your sister well and hope she gets better soon.
