I had a persistent discomfort in my left upper abdominal area for several months and so my primary care sent me to a specialist who ran the gamete on me with testing,; MRI, endoscopy Ultrasound and at the end of the day it was a hands up we don’t know. I was seeing Dr. Merrick for acupuncture and was telling him about it and after a little probing he suggested dry needling. I can’t wait to go back to my primary care doc and the specialist. Pain is gone.
