Patient Success Story
It took my doctors four years to diagnose Burning Mouth Syndrome as my chronic pain got worse and worse.
During that time I tried 20 different herbs and prescriptions as my doctors tried to find solutions to the worsening chronic pain. They sent me to 10 "Handling Pain Classes," several pain clinics, two specialists at OHSU, many counselors, and all kinds of resources to try and minimize the pain. As we reached what I felt the end of resources we decided to try acupuncture which had been recommended by doctors over the years but we had delayed because insurance did not cover it.
I went from a 8 or 9 on the pain scale all day every day to a 1 or 2. Every week the acupuncture reduced the pain. I was amazed, and every week the pain lessened. Lei Liu and his staff have made a tremendous improvement in my pain, stress, and anxiety. I highly recommend acupuncture, Lei Liu, and his clinic to anyone looking for help and relief.
Medicines and procedures I've tried prior to acupuncture:
- Vitamin B Complex
- Allergy test, blood work
- Biopsy of mouth
- Protopic Ointment
- Gabapentin (tried twice)
- Doxepin cream
- Tacrolimus ointment
- Ketoconazole cream
I am so glad I went to G and L. I had never had acupuncture before and have to say my experience has been amazing! I would and have recommended them to others.
I'm ecstatic that my back has finally been helped. No more cortisone shots, physical therapy, chiropractic.
My acupuncturist is Pamela. A very warm and nice person. She has me back to playing golf after a 3 year layoff. Thank you Pamela you are awesome.
I suffered from severe asthma due to allergies for at least 2 months. The asthma was causing an awful cough which was making me lose sleep. I was spending over $200 a month on 5 different allergy medications and I was still suffering. I was at my breaking point because I was completely exhausted physically, mentally, and emotionally. Perhaps related, I was also in constant pain at the time with headaches and joint pain, especially in my knees.
Since starting treatments, I have had amazing results. My allergies and asthma improved each visit, and I saw an improvement in my energy levels within 2 weeks. After 2 months of treatments I am only on one allergy medication, I don't have headaches or join pain anymore, and I am sleeping a lot better. I am very happy to have my quality of life back!
