Hi all, have this case that I would appreciate your thoughts on.
17 year old female
MC: Pain around coccyx which spreads up to about L1 when doing intense sports training sessions or when sitting on a hard/cold surface for a long period of time. Feels it on BL channel on both sides, worse on left. The pain could last all night, then will ease after a day or two. Better with warmth. Started after she fell on her coccyx about 2 years ago. Has been seen by consultant who doesn’t believe there is a fracture anywhere.
No other issues, no significant medical history, no medication, rarely sick.
Very pretty, well groomed. Slim but not skinny, abdomen quite firm and dense. Very polite, reserved and not very forthcoming with details about herself but I feel that it’s more shyness than too-shielded?
LU10 area normal, skin normal except for dry scalp, stools regular and normal, tongue puffy with thin white coating, purple distended subs.
Whole abdomen area tender on palpation, worse below naval, especially on the right.
Periods irregular and painful, usually every 5 weeks, some clots at the start but then gets quite heavy and colour is red.
She sometimes gets headaches when she gets tired. Not able to pinpoint channels but all over the top and front of her head she thinks.
Kid XS signs - Delayed (over consolidated?), painful periods with some clots, very purple distended subs. Some visible blood vessels on BL40 area of both legs? Hands and feet freezing to touch.
SI XS – Heavy bleeding
BL XS – Pain on BL channel, better with warmth. HR ~60. Hands and feet freezing to touch.
HT XS – Pain on BL channel
SJ XS – Bright eyes +6, polite
Liv XS – Dense flesh, heavy bleeding
SP XS – Tongue puffy
LI XS – None that I noticed
LU XS – Tongue puffy
ST XS – Nothing that I noticed
GB XS – Nothing to note until after the 2nd treatment, see below.
PC XS – Nothing excessive to note
+SI right – plenty of stasis signs and does not seem to have any Kidney deficiency. Felt relaxed and seemed to settle well. At next appointment she said that she did feel much looser in her lower back on the left, and that the right seemed a bit stiffer now. So….
+SI left – with all the stasis signs and with good result I felt two in a row would be okay.
But that night she started to get a headache which got worse as the weekend went on. She did not contact me but went to the doctor on the Sunday as her mother was worried about the headache. It was a stabbing type pain on left GB20 area and there is a little nodule. The pain then goes up over the right hand side of her head to forehead. The doctor felt it was just muscular as it was all tight and tender down into her shoulders. He prescribed anti-inflammatories. She called me on Monday and I asked her to come in but she was not able to come until today.
We talked about the headache and she also said she has been feeling dizzy, lightheaded and agitated all week and can’t concentrate in school and I noticed her limbs are jittery. My thought for these new symptoms are GB XS (could this also cause dizziness and lightheadedness?).
But, because of the adverse reaction and all the reminders recently to do the opposite, I thought I better try +Kid….thinking it makes no sense at all for her though. But after 5 minutes she was more agitated and said she didn’t feel great so I took them out. At that stage I probably should have tried +PC but I felt she was too agitated for the jing well points so I just did 4 gates which seemed to settle her a bit.
She is coming again on Saturday and I plan to try +PC. Possibly +HT for future if needed for LBP. She has not been able to focus on lower back this past week but it has not gotten any worse.
My main question here is about the adverse reaction. Any thoughts? I’m thinking too much movement caused this but haven’t seen it kick off completely new symptoms before. Also wondering if Liver is XS and moving blood too much could cause an issue like this?
