    I'm not sure that doctors are being encouraged to recommend acupuncture but as of July 10 they're being expected to keep informed about it as a possible treatment.

    I had acupuncture for Trigeminal Neuralgia. It did not work for that. It did work for others I met in the waiting room every week. They had different complaints. One was another woman w MS who was having it for stamina. She said it helped her some.

    When I was first DXed, I got info from the NMSS and NMSF, both with info about A.Puncture being helpful for some people. I doubt they still do, but they may again. EVERYTHING for MS seems to just go in circles.

    Cool

    I didn't get any info about it, but it is HIGHLY modified. A V-8 and narrowed rear axle. I don't care for the color, but a hot pink paintjob would fix that!

    Oh, and my grocery getter car is a 2005 PT Cruiser with only 24,000 miles on it. I won't buy any more cars in my lifetime. But I MAY sell Pinky....one day.

    Is that what's shown in your avatar photo? Google tells me that's a 1969 VW Karmann Ghia but Google can be wrong.

    I know...you are right....I was too lazy to go back and correct the wording of my post. Thank you for pointing out what was misleading title to my post! Really. I knew at the time I had the wrong word but was too careless to correct. My lazy mind bothers me a lot.

    I right-clicked on Howie's avatar photo, and the dropdown menu shows the option "Search Google for image," and I clicked on that.
