Regarding your health, please use your common sense. Acupuncture can be very helpful for a very wide spectrum of acute and chronic health issues but is not a replacement for medical attention.
If you have acute, worrying symptoms, or are unsure about whether you have a serious health issue, in the first instance please contact your GP or for 24-7/365 days a year advice dial 111 (the NHS non-emergency number). You will be asked a series of questions to assess your symptoms and will be immediately directed to the appropriate medical care.
For medical emergencies dial 999.
