fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and neuropathy relief


I am a 51-year-old female, who has suffered from fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, neuropathy and diabetes, for several years.

My life has been full of pain, fatigue, and discomfort. I have seen many doctors and have taken several types of medicine.

My day would be filled with me trying to run a household, hold a full-time job and trying to raise a family. Trying to do all these things without thinking of the horrible pain I felt with each simple task I tried to do.

I had to finally resort to getting a cleaning service to do my weekly cleaning. I also used a delivery service for groceries. Even a mobile dog groomer for the care of my 2 dogs.

My last flare up had me out of work for 2 weeks. I saw my doctor who only increased my medication, something that I didn’t want to do. I was trying to stop medications, not increase the already high number of pills being popped every morning.

I was in a desperate state and needed some relief. I knew someone who used acupuncture to help with a back problem. I called my insurance company and searched for an acupuncturist in my plan.

I came here not really knowing what I was in for. On my first visit Cathy did “cupping” I thought “fishbowls on my back… whatever”. That night was the first night that I slept through the night in at least 20 years!


I followed the next visit with great relief and even began getting some of the feeling back in my feet from the neuropathy. That hasn’t happened in at least 5 years!

With each visit, I noticed more and more of an improvement. Slowly my raging pain that riddled my body, became a mild “Toothache feeling” throughout. That began to develop into a mild ache.

My sleeping pattern became a normal pattern. I was never able to stay asleep for more than 4 hrs. I now wake up after 8! I can also fall back to sleep if woken up, something I never could do.

I now have been doing treatments 3 times a week for 3 weeks and I can honestly say that it is the best thing I could have done. I only wish I did this years ago.

I am now off most medications and have at least 75% of the feeling back in my feet. Which is wonderful since I am on my feet all day at work.

I recommend acupuncture for anyone with pain, fatigue, or whatever problem you may have.
