I used to get better in the summer months, but this summer although it's been slightly better than winter I am still having them pretty regularly, especially this month.
I am also getting acupuncture but even my TCM doc is worried because they aren't responding. I promised to go back to my primary care physician (family doc) and talk to him, although I feel like I've had that conversation many times now and what I get is a vicodin prescription which doesn't do much of anything. Ibuprofen does a bit more but tears up my stomach...so I can't take it often.
So I'm beginning to feel rather desperate. All year I've functioned on less than all four cylinders and I'm tired of feeling like half a person or less.
