New patient today.
39 year old woman.
Main complaint: Neck Pain
very complex medical history including Multiple Sclerosis
with . . .
aversion to humid weather
worsening of symptoms with humid weather
excessive eye tearing
strong sweet tooth
extensive dental cavities
you would have thought a LI+ treatment would have yielded some significant response.
nothing. no response. no settling
she has no excessive fleshiness characteristic of Spleen excess
but so many signs of damp on the inside (not to mention the lesions of multiple sclerosis and an ovarian cyst) and on the outside, I was so sure LI+ would have been a slam dunk.
so, to my great disappointment, after five minutes, I took the needles out (even tried to amp up the LI+ by going bilateral) and went with UB+
she had a very warm and soft substernal area
a very red tongue with red tip
is becoming a counselling psychologist because she loves to help people (feels she can empathise very well due to her own life of trauma)
mild response on the table
clinic is hard.
