Does Pricking Your Finger Actually Work?

by staples

So you know how in Korean dramas, whenever someone gets indigestion they take out a humongo needle and stab at thumbs? Well, my stomach was hurting today and  my niece came over. Co-drama-nut as she is, she insisted we give it a shot. She was ready to go, but we quickly began to argue over exactly what the steps were and where the actual pricking should be. So, we looked it up, and voila!

On this site, we found pretty good instructions on how to get about it. We went through the back-thumping, arm massaging, and thumb tying steps. . . but there was still a problem. My niece and I argued briefly on the location of the “nail bed”: I thought it as directly beneath the tip of the nail because I swear I saw that in a drama once, but my niece said it was behind the nail near the cuticle. She was able to cite a specific drama, so she won.

So now I’m sitting here. The pain has eased somewhat, though I now have a nerve-like pain between the eyes. We’ll see. I doubt I drew enough blood.

  2. You might get indigestion from eating too much or too fast, eating high-fat foods, or eating when you’re stressed. Smoking, drinking too much alcohol, using some medicines, being tired, and having ongoing stress can also cause indigestion or make it worse. Sometimes the cause is a problem with the digestive tract, like an ulcer or GERD.;

  3. I was searching about the thumb poking and found it, which I try cause my tummy hurt and I was about to going to bed; and after the poking and bleeding I felt better and able to go to sleep. So I can say it works. I saw that on a Korean drama, that’s why I was looking for it.
