Outside the box but it helped

I went to the acupuncturist and after our usual treatment he mentioned a topical analgesic called Zheng Gu Shui. He applied it to the right rear of my head just around the hairline. When I asked "Why there?", he said that is where the inflammation is likely causing the pain. About an hour later I felt the best I have felt in a year. I went to lunch with a friend, laughed, ate, talked all without a concern this would trigger pain. I felt fully normal again. It was like I could breathe.

Not sure what to make of it but I can't argue results. Since, I have felt better with the exception of pain right when I get out of bed. Not even my slow-motion morning routine seems to help that. Just to give a little background, lately I have been getting daily Type II pain, triggered by eating, talking, getting excited, etc. The analyst in me is very curious as to why this helped? Furthermore, how do I tell this to my neurologist.

Zheng Gu Shui can be found at any Chinese or Asian market and runs about $10 a bottle. I have no stake in this other than to relay my experience to my fellow TNers.

you might post this under "topicals" under the groups tab - there is a group solely devoted to this passion of finding the right one!

And thanks for sharing!!!!
