I have possibly an unusual situation or one I have not previuosly heard of before. It looks like my chronic overeating has led to painful sex. I am a female. I have been an emotional eater since young adolescence for over 10 years now. I am very sensitive to everything anyone says and I overthink things that arent important. I eat for any emotional reason, most likely due to some anxiety or feeling of inadequacy and depression. Also I eat when I feel physical discomfort which in my case is frequent abdominal discomfort and fullness. Over the years I have managed to reduce physical discomfort considerably thru diet change and acupressure. I am slender, however I do still overeat regularly so both physical and emotional triggers are still there. I usually feel low energy and unmotivated except by food. Ever since I can remember sexual intercourse has been painful. It feels as though my whole inner epithelium and mucosa is inflamed. I usually dont have any interest in it, which is not how it always was. This creates a problem in my relationship. I also notice that I bruise easily and I feel pain upon pressure on any part of my body. It sounds a little like fibromyalgia, but without the flu like whole body aches. I saw a post here about freckles and blood stagnation. I had freckles as a child and now have them on my arms instead, and I have redheads in my family. I am trying to figure out what is my root trigger condition /disbalance is so that I can work on it. What is my general condition chinese medicine wise? Do you have any suggestions about redirectling emotions with specific acupressure or energy work? Also is there something specific I can do to relieve inflamation so as to make sex more enjoyable?
Thanks for your time
