Yesterday I was running around the office harassing patients and co-workers by asking them what they would like to read about on an acupuncture blog. Not surprisingly they answered: needles. Someone else thought that it would be a good idea to start a list of things that hurt more than getting acupuncture. I thought that was a pretty good idea. The following are the collected responses to date.

Acupuncture needles hurt less than:

Getting your ears pierced
Waxing your eyebrows
Getting stung by a bee
A paper cut
Going to the dentist
Getting a sliver in your finger
Slamming your finger in a car door
Going to the DMV
Getting a pimple on the end of your nose
Getting a tattoo
Your leg “waking up” after it went to sleep
Paying taxes
A sunburn
Razor burn

And these just in:

Having an ingrown hair or an ingrown  finger nail
