I have been seeing an acupuncturist for a little over 3 months now on a weekly basis for my fertility issues. A few times I have had slight bleeding afterward from the needles and 3 times slight bruising in an area where one of the needles had been (twice in my foot and once in my arm) I never thought too much of this however on my last visit, I had a huge blood blister on my forearm where one of the needles was then it left after a day and turned into a massive bruise. The acupuncturist (who is also a MD) had to have seen this as he was removing the needle and never stated anything about the blister.
I was wondering if anyone else who has gone through acupuncture has experienced this and is it normal? I once raised an issue before with my acupuncturist and although he always seems very nice, I felt as if he didn't like me questioning him. I am wondering if it is just time to quit. I am continuing with him because he is an area where I can get to his office easily. The next closest one to me is still some distance and doesn't fit in with my schedule as well.
I would appreciate hearing experiences that anyone might have had.
