This practitioner is correct, the burning pain should subside after a little while. Certain points appear to be more sensitive during the needle's insertion. It is sometimes possible to feel some tingling or a quick jolt because those points are close to the nerves. It is only a sensation because if the needle's insertion was correct then there is no structural damage. I would like to recommend asking the practitioner to avoid needling that point next time and let it rest for a couple of weeks.

Make sure you communicate this information to your acupuncturist so he or she can better assist you. If the lightheadedness is uncomfortable, it is possible to ask the therapist to be treated it in a sitting position.
