Hi Chad and thanks for your response. I would like to point out that I am an educated and long time vegetarian in that I do not eat too much processed soy foods, tofu or raw vegetables and I rather enjoy a variety of foods. I eat things like sea kelp, goji berries, black sesame seeds etc. to have amino acids and keep blood up. I have had issues in the past with Blood Def although it has been resolved.
My most prominent symptoms are deep seated repressed hurt and heartache. I would say that there is still some anger too. I have managed anxiety which includes a fear of certain people and situations for many years. Physically, I feel that I carry a lot of around in my chest. I also seem to have chronic issues with planning and carrying things out.
I also have gastrointestinal issues particularly around the first three days of my period where I have loose and very urgent bowel movements. I am pretty much housebound for the first 20 hours. I experience intense cramps as well. I used to have very long periods, although acupunctire sessions has resolved this for me. For the remainder of the month/cycle, stools are more often very difficult to pass.
I have ongoing pain in my left shoulder and left side of my torso around the ribcage and under the arm.
Am told that my pulse is constantly "wiry" although I do not know what this is indicative of at all.
.....thought I would add if it's relevant at all that my skin is hyper sensitive to just about everything. Right now it has been super itcy.
