I have been going to a very old Chinese Acupuncture practicioner for about a month now. I have been going to another one for 2 months although I felt like it wasn't helping me so I switched.
I am not sure if this one is helping me either although is working on a different issue (fibroid) - my problem is that last time I went, after the session I felt the left side of my adbomen (ovary) tender and a little swollen , right where he had inserted the needles, when I got home I saw it was starting to become black and blue so I went back to the doctor who said it was nothing and told me to put warm compresses on it.
My question is, is it normal to get black and blue bruised like that? I might have moved a little during that session, can that have caused the bruise? This doctor usually moves the needles once inserted and push them a little deeper (something that my first acupuncturist didn't do) - can that cause permanent damage to my ovaries/uterus??? I am pretty worried - the black and blue is still there after a week - I am putting arnica on it but I hope this won't cause me any additional problems!!!
Hope someone can answer my questions.
