So I went to an acupunturist about 3 weeks ago, with absolutely no results. I had scheduled another appointment, but when I got there she was a no show. I had started feeling better for a few days until I had my BAHA surgery two weeks ago and my wonky head came back with a vengence! I found another acupuncturist in my area and decided to give him a try. He was much more thorough than the first. He is a certified physical therapist, certified orthopedic specialist as well as a licensed acupuncturist. My first visit lasted 2 1/2 hours. He stuck needles in my head and had me go home with them and remove myself after a few hours. The next day I had one of my worst wonky days ever. I had another appt today and decided it couldnt hurt to give it another try as he told me that my healing would not be instantaeous. Today, he again put needles in my head, but this time he moved the skin around on my head with the needles in, then had me move my head side to side. I saw immediate improvement. Then he had me tilt my head to each side....and again I'm on a rockin boat. He moved the skin around again and this time there was a little improvement. I again came home with needles in my head and this time he instructed me to leave them in as long as I could....up to 48 hours. I'm afraid to get overly excited, but I'm feeling much better this evening. I go back next Thursday and he said we would continue with the acupuncture for a couple of weeks and then start on some physical therapy. I'm really excited about my experience and hope that this is the thing that is gonna work for me.
I would highly recommend trying this to anyone who is still having balance issues. I would however check out the acupuncturist first to make sure they are reputable. My first one was licensed, but she had just graduated from acupuncture school and not that she didn't know what she was doing....I just think she did'nt have the experience with my particualr problems.
Will report back with more hopefully good news next week.
