I am trying to find some help and information for my wife. I hope this is the right forum to post on, and hope this there is someone who can help me out. For the last 8-9 years my wife has had medical conditions that seem to be getting worse, and all we get from traditional doctors are take more pills and see me in a month. She has suffered from chronic pain in her joints and muscles. The doctors say its fibromyalgia or maybe lupus. I dont know all they give her is more and more pills to take ranging from pain meds to antidepressants.
Along with the aches she has high blood pressure, irregular bowels, constantly hot (even though its 40 degrees outside), headaches, swelling of face and abdomen, fatigue, ocassional left arm and chest pains (not heart attacks-we had that checked out), creepy crawly feeling on head, and insomnia.
I believe there has to be something that is causing all this to happen to her. i cant believe that a women of 32 years of age can have this much going on without some explanation. we have done tests and labs and mri's and nothing shows up. I am looking for something that will help.
So my question is do you think acupuncture and eastern medicine has 'help' to offer my wife? We are at our wits end and need some help. I am trying to find anything that will help. Any input would be appreciated.
