Anxiety & ME

"I've been suffering with anxiety for 10 months prior to my first appointment with Lily, and from ME for 6 years.  I had tried Amitriptyline which was not able to control my anxiety levels and was keen to get it under control.  

My anxiety symptoms meant that I experienced disturbed thoughts, twitching muscles, anxiety shocks and diarrhoea.  With the ME, I suffered with a lack of energy, exhaustion, headaches and brain fog.

Lily's treatment procedures and professional caring manner could not be improved on, they are impeccable. After a course of acupuncture with Lily, my anxiety levels were reduced such that I can now watch TV without having disturbed thoughts, and undertake activities that would trigger off my anxiety such as playing video games. At PMT time, I do not end up suffering from anxiety as badly.  In general, the acupuncture alongside a low dose of my anti-anxiety medication has meant that I have been able to live my life again.

The biggest surprise has been the effect of the acupuncture on my ME symptoms.  It is thanks to Lily that I no longer suffer from exhaustion nearly every day of my life.  Thank you."
