If you're going to spew bullshit like acupuncture can fix a nervous disorder, you better be able to support that better than "WELL THIS ONE TIME...."

A placebo is a simulated or otherwise medically ineffectual treatment for a disease or other medical condition intended to deceive the recipient. Sometimes patients given a placebo treatment will have a perceived or actual improvement in a medical condition, a phenomenon commonly called the placebo effect.
had it done a few times on my ankles after spraining them bot quite a few times and after it they got stronger my mom ended up shattering her rotator cuff and had to do PT ended up going to for Acupuncture and he mobility improved much faster doing that then the pt it honestly all depends on who you go to my family always went to this asian lady named eva who actually studied this most of her life
so looking something up on wikipedia is better evidence than someones personal experience? wow.. and if you did look it up you would see that I am not the only one that has had positive results from using it
Why has Methanar not been infracted by this point when people get infracted for much less? He's being an ass to someone with a personal story, actual experience, assuming he knows better because his source of all knowledge is google...

Had it for TMJ problems in combination with massage therapy and a bite plate about 1/2 a year or so ago. Don't know which one (or if all of them) worked but my problems are gone so I would say it can help certain things. Felt nice too, I don't mind needles but you don't even feel them.
I've had it done twice. One was at a music festival. My allergies were killing me and as I was walking by the tent the guy said he could help, figured what the hell. He put one basically in my nose and one up between my eyes. My sinuses drained the rest of the day and my headache lessened. It worked suprisingly well.
The second was after I had shoulder reconstruction surgery. I was going to a "full service" physical therapy place(excercise, massage, sauna and alternative medicines). They suggested acupuncture after my workouts. I would usually get 6-8 needles in and around my shoulder. While they did help, it wasn't nearly as effective as a steam or massage.
Edit: As for the bells paulsy my fiance had it at one point. The doctor told her to just wait it out and see what happened. Three weeks later, much to my dismay she could use her whole face again. So it does tend to just go away after awhile.

There is nothing positive to be gained from Acupuncture unless you consider Hepatitis C a positive thing.
