Have you ever woken up and felt totally out of sorts? If you haven't then more power to you. This morning woke up with pain in my shoulder and a twinge in my neck. AAARRRGGG I totally feel pain when I turn my head. oh well.. such is the pain of life. I am seriously contemplating another trip to the acupuncturist. I'll let you know if I do that and how it goes. The last time I went they stuck 36 needles in my back, head, legs, hands, and feet. Now why they put them in my feet I do not know. I went in cause of a pain in my neck (not my kids :-) and the kind lady made me stand up and she poked and prodded my back asking me "does it hurt there?" I of course said some but not like my back. She then proceeded to have me lay down and pricked me with needles over and over again after about the 10th I asked "why so many needles?" and she told me that my back nerves were heavy (obviously not from work) and she was going to fix me. I woke up about 30 minutes later when they started pulling out the needles from the sensitive point on the back of my heel, OUCH!!!
I did feel less pain about hours later, but the best part was all those little pains in the back (not the kids dammit!) were gone and I felt like a new man. So that is why when I feel pain in my back or shoulders I contemplate returning to do my impression of a pin cushion.
