If you got my other message please disregard this one. I wrote anothesr one and I’m not sure if it posted. Anyway, thanks for you response. It is very encouraging. I am still researching acupuncturists and will let you and others know how it goes. At this point since the “regular” doctors can’t seem to help me or even give me advice and/or preventative treatments to stop it from getting any worse, it’s very worth trying. Hearing from others like yourself is so helpful when one doesn’t know where to turn because the doctors I have seen so far aren ‘t helping. My experience with traditional doctors and this disease takes the phrase “get a second opinion” to a whole new angle.
