In our opinion everyone with fibromyalgia should try acupuncture. In our experience, it consistently helps with the associated pain and sleep difficulty. In fact, the “tender points” common in fibro are actually acupuncture points! When it helps, you should expect fast relief from pain, usually in 2-3 treatments and a course of 4-8 often reinforces the pain relief and improved sleep. Occasional tune-up treatments after that.
