Failed Back Surgery and Acupuncture
I had a laminectomy without fusion 2.5 months ago but it has turned into a nightmare that I cannot wake up from. The NS has basically dismissed me saying there is nothing she can do because she cannot understand why I have chronic neuropathic pain. My abdomen, legs, calves. knees are always on fire. I cannot walk properly due to a weak right leg, which is starting to atrophy. I cannot get the pain under control so I had my first acupuncture visit. At first I felt very woozy and wobbly but started to feel better, except later in the evening I felt worse. I was in terrible pain all night and wonder if I should go back for the next treatment. I wasn't expecting miracles but I didn't expect to feel just as or even worse after the treatment. Any comments on this or suggestions about where I should go next would be appreciated.
