I am thinking about getting acupunture. I heard its good for the brain and most of my symptoms is neuro (brain symptoms) is it safe with lyme?

Hi. I have severe pain from lyme. Have had lyme five years now. Last year, I started to work with an accupuncturist and a chiropractor in addition to pain medications and anti inflammatory drug. It has been most beneficial to me and has been safe. I hope that you consider it to help you. I too have neuro lyme. Take care and good luck!!!

I have been doing acupuncture for 30 years. It does help and sometimes amazingly so. It is good for anyone not just Lymies.
I just started seeing a new acupuncturist. As part of your appointment you actually get a mini lymphatic massage in their office. Of course most acupuncturist's do not offer this but I find it to be a plus.
I have gone to numerous acupuncturists over the years. They all practice a bit differently so if you are not being helped by one switch. I find it helps if you find one that knows something about Lyme disease. My last one did not.

Accupuncture was able to help me alot before I knew I had Lyme. It improved my energy, concentration, and stomach problems.
I still have problems in these areas but, it did improve it. I continue to do accupuncture as it does seem to help.

Acupuncture done by a licensed acupuncturist or physician is perfectly safe. Its effectiveness varies, but it is certainly work a try. Just make sure you go to someone reputable who uses disposable needles etc...

Acupuncture can be wonderful but be sure not to get overstimulated.
