Eval.: This is a very general question. Usually treatment plans for pain are developed based on the diagnosis or the type of pain. If this is chronic problem - medical assessment is important. Acupuncture can be helpful for chronic limb pain of varying etiologies.

Depends on details: Question unclear and has no details at all. If you did not ask for premium, paid services, then this HealthTap public forum is free. Post a new question with good grammar and spelling, and one or more of the thousands of volunteer doctors may answer it. They might skip repetitive questions, or ones that have too many abbreviations, or are otherwise hard to understand.
