I am bothered with Migraine headaches and get spots/circles

This answer was rated:

I am bothered with Migraine headaches and get white spots/circles in my eyes. A friend said that he was doing acupuncture to help this problem. Do you have any opinion?
Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

Acupuncture has shown some excellent results for many conditions and has been around for centuries. As a Western trained doctor I must confess I really don't know much about the success of acupuncture for migraines. My opinion, however, is that if you make sure you are being treated by a reputable practitioner of this art I think it is worth a try.

Dr. Rick :

On the other hand there are medicines that you can take, either on a daily basis or just as you get the first symptoms of a migraine coming on, that have been shown to be very effective in the treatment of migraines. This being said I think you would be OK to try this ancient oriental healing art for your migraines.
