On pins and needles

It's been awhile since I posted something non-beer or non-political, so I figured my first acupuncture experience warranted a post. I learned today that the excruciating pain I've had in my neck, radiating down my arm, and keeping me up at night is a pinched nerve. After picking up my muscle relaxant and Tylenol 3, I took a friends recommendation and made an appointment for acupuncture.
It was incredible. Within seconds of the 15 or so needles being gently inserted in my legs, hands and scalp, I could turn my head left and right, up and down, with almost no pain. As I rested in the provided-recliner arm chair, with relaxation music playing in the background, I was already looking forward to my next session.
