    Headaches after acupuncture?

    I have had a slight (annoying) headache ever since I first tried acupuncture on Monday. It started shortly after my session and hasn't really gone. I suspect it may be the tea I have to drink???

    Anyone else experienced this?

    Not with acupuncture. Might be worth mentioning the acupuncturist though...

    No, never happened to me either and I've taken plenty of chinese herbs in association with acupuncture during the past few years.
    I'd also suggest you mention it to your acupuncturist.
    Out of interest, your headache wouldn't be a lack of water (dehydration)? Just throwing it out there.

    I don't think so Andie, I drink plenty of water. And they only started since the acupuncture. Today I have been ok though, but they usually get worse later in the day.
    I see him again on Tuesday so I will mention it and see what he says.

    Thanks ladies
