I'm happy to report that I went to an acupuncture Dr, certified, and most of my previous complaints are much better - those being extreme fatigue, extreme thirst, sciatica pain. The Dr said I have low K yin and yang with the yin being the most deficient. My tongue is coated, swollen, and pale.
I have cut back my sugar intake drastically - I had been craving it - and I do not eat spicy foods anymore, as he suggested. At my 7th and last visit I asked if he'd be ok with my just coming in for maintenance. And he was fine with that.
i do not add sugar to anything, but I still get it in some foods, and occasionally get weak and eat a little chocolate or ice cream. And I let the ice cream melt first said he said not to eat foods too cold.
he has not asked me to quit using my wrist, and I told him after the third or fourth treatment it felt better, and then I use it more, ESP this time of year when our tomatoes and fruits get preserved.
My wrist pain is just as bad or worse and I'm not sure how to proceed. Do I quit going to him, or is dequervine tendinitis/block/pressure bc the ligaments are out of alignment and causing weakness and acting like a pinched nerve very hard to treat? I should mention maybe it's my age, since I'm in my sixties.
he said I have no other blockages, just weakness in my back, which he tonified. I asked what meridians to work on at home w acupressure and he recommended KD, LV, SP. but again said all of them are connected and work together.
Thanks for any input.
