Hello, I have been struggling with adrenal fatigue that progressed into adrenal exhaustion for 2 years. After trying several nutritional remedies and trying dhea supplements (to no avail) decided to try accupuncture. Had my first session and was told she was going to use a very light Japanese type procedure. She put a needle in each ankle, in my abdomen and in my forehead then let me rest for 20 minutes. A couple of hours after the session I drug myself home and slept for 4 hours. For the rest of the week I was only able to function for about 4 hours a day. The rest of the time I spent in bed. I couldn't take care of my kids or myself. The next session, a week after the first, I told her about the extreme fatigue. She was suprised as she had started with such a light procedure. She did an even lighter procedure and advised that I make a point of resting over the next week and come back for another session. So, once again, I drug myself home, slept for 4 hours and spent another week in bed with only a few hours a day able to function. Just had my 3rd session and asked how long I can expect this to last? When will I get better? She said she didn't know but that one of my pulses in my wrist felt more energetic. Good news? Don't know. But am starting this 3rd week exhausted. We have hired a housekeeper and my husband has taken time off work to take care of the kids and I but that can't last forever. I want my life back. If I quit the accupuncture treatments will I remain like this? I'm at a loss. What should I do?
