The Fibromyalgia Flip-Flop

A new study being presented to the 11th Congress of Pain (love that name) at the Mayo Clinic will show that Acupuncture is more effective than “sham” acupuncture in treating the pain, chronic fatigue and anxiety associated with Fibromyalgia: Link

As you may recall, I recently posted a study that showed that sham and regular Acupuncture are no different in treating Fibromyalgia: Previous Post

Does this vindicate the discussion we had that the first study was flawed, using poorly chosen points? Alternately, does this basically mean that both studies may be flawed and a new mega study needs to be completed? It seems to me that every day conflicting evidence such as this is reported.
