Hello, a few months ago I went to see an acupuncturist referred by a person I had just met (and met only once) who referred me to this acunpuncturist she was seeing for many years. I had previously had treatments done with a different one in the city I use to live previously and never had any similar issue.
During the treatment, the doctor put a needle right underneath my left breast in upper abdoment area and to a few other spots, including writs. When she left the room, I believe I felf my sweater slip down my torso and maybe touch the needle that was placed there, I believe remembering a discomfort then but since I couldn't really move my hands to pull the sweater up I just let it be.
About 7-10 days, a slight pain was felt in that area, at first I didn't connect the treatment I had a few days before. I was also seeing an osteopath, to whom I mentioned this pain, and then made the connection to the acupuncture treatment, in addition, I had some slight discomfort in my right ear. The osteopath reassured me saying this should disappear and indeed, after let's say 2-3 weeks the pain went away.
Now, for the last 7 days or so, the upper left abdomen pain came back, and I (maybe should have not) played with the area to try to understand where the pain was coming from, and made it MUCH worse. Coincidently, I also starting sunbathing and as I was laying down on hard surfaces on my belly, I thought this would have "awaken" the pain again (myabe I'm completely wrong). Now I feel everytime I am using my abdominal muscles, this upper left pain is hurting me, more and more, becoming handicapping.
My questions are:
1- is it right to believe it might have been due to that one acunpucture treatment?
2- should I go see another doctor to help out with this pain?
3- what can be done to maybe get rid of it?
