Hi. Cannot understand your question. Could you send me more information on what happened? You were injured by acupuncture needle? Get back to me with as much as you can. When this happened. What medication you are taking. I will then send a preliminary reply and we can discuss until you are satisfied. Dr Frank

HI. I am here and can try to help. What is the "needle medication"? A steroid like methylprednisolone (Solumedrol)? Did you get an EMG/NCV (nerve conduction electrical test over the damaged nerve)??? If you have a report, upload the report and I can tell you what is going on. If you have any medical reports, just paste them into the chat window leaving out your name or identifying information and I can explain what is going on and try to send suggestions to help your pain.
