Lung puncture fear
Created 04-19-2024 by "Jenchance44"
I went for an acupuncture treatment yesterday and the acupuncturist forgot to take out a needle in my neck (I believe CV22). Since I felt something in my neck still, I instinctively reached up and touched it, possibly moving it/hitting it when I felt the needle was still in. She then removed it, but now I'm scared that I could have pushed it in deeper when I touched it. Is it possible I could have...

Long Dan Xie Gan Tang question
Created 10-13-2023 by "CalZone"
Much appreciated on any help that can be given on this. A few years ago, I took Long Dan Xie Gan Tang for a few months to get rid of a really strange nerve pain that was described to be caused by heat dampness. It worked wonders. This herb got rid of the issue in 2-3 days, for this issue that lasted over a year. One of the things that also happened with it was...

Ashi points
Created 01-13-2024 by "AEvelyn"
Some time ago, maybe around 2018 I looked up and I thought I saved the date and book where Ashi points were first discussed but I can't seem to find it. I attempted googling the info again but this time without success. Does anyone know when ashi points first appeared in Chinese texts?

Panic Disorder
Created 02-26-2024 by "WillRex"
Hello everyone. This is my first post and I’m looking for help! I am working with my daughter to find help for my 16-year-old granddaughter who has an extreme case of panic disorder. She also has agoraphobia so is virtually homebound. This started during the pandemic (over two years ago) and has steadily gotten worse. She won’t take medication because of the side effects. I’ve read some very encouraging things about using acupuncture and acupressure...

Jaw pain after first acupuncture session
Created 04-14-2024 by "Jleigh812"
I went for my first acupuncture treatment two weeks ago for ear issues/tinnitus. I received electro acupuncture which was painful for me. The acupuncture points used were in/below my ears. Since the session, my ear issues have improved significantly, however since the treatment I have had a clicking/painful jaw and some swollen lymph nodes in my neck/sore throat. Is this a normal response? Could it be that the treatment was too much for my first...

front neck voice muscle <-> rhomboid scapula? (ST 9 <-> UB 45ish)
Created 02-15-2024 by "Boingster"
Hey folks. This morning's qi gong had a long-awaited, seems to me, movement between what I think is ST 9 and UB 45, round thereabouts. I was experiencing a familiar strong 'yin' around ST 9, sat with it (stood, really), and after a while felt a 'yang' of what felt, for about 3/4 of a second, like heat moving out of UB 45, plus or minus 1, a well-known tense muscle attaching to the scapula....

Eucommia bark
Created 04-20-2024 by "Bea"
Hi! I've recently started taking 1/2 table spoon of eucommia bark. I bought a small jar to improve/prevent any joint and muscle damage because of aging, sports/lack of movement, etc. I'm a woman in my late 30s. I have looked for information about eucommia bark online and I haven't found any negative comments. It also supports the liver. I wonder if taking it for several weeks/months is recommended or if it may be damaging in...
