One of my female patient, 32 years old, has given me very different experience. She is being treated for Spondilosis, knee pain and also menstrual irregularities. One or two days in a month she gets feeling of strong electrical shocks while inserting the needles. Firstly we felt that the needle may be brushing to nerves. but it is most unlikely that every needle will do this mischief. after two days this becomes normal and for rest of the period there is absolutely no problem while needling. This may not be related to premenstrual rise in sensitivity because last month it was in the ovulation period but this month it is in different time. these two days she cannot be needled anywhere.
Of course this is a doubt of academic nature. I am curious to know why this may be happening and whether can be avoided? The patient herself is a doctor but she could not explain this. can someone help me?
