I am a holistic veterinarian that practices tcvm acupuncture and learning herbs, so catching up to you all - -
I have a personal problem that I can't seem to clear that I don't see presented in animals much.
Hx: fire/water constitution with lung qi def with heat(history of smoking and unresolved grief)
issues with damp (go figure). Lately not eating as well - building the business. lyme desease (first one undiagnosed in meninges for 5yrs, second last summer - hit the joints)
Monday my left foot swelled with edema, sore ankels, but the foot has a neuropathy (cellulitis) presenting as an interior stagnation between the 1st and 2nd toes - very painful. I acup. lv 3, sp6, kd7, st36,lv8, and li11, lu5 - - it feels like I am walking on a walnut under the ball of my foot - the foot is congested and damp - other one is too, but not swollen. last night kept me awake and worsens with walking. relieves after lv 3 point, but leads to soft voice.
I'm too close to this - any ideas on acup and herbs?
I was looking at Rehmania base -

most painful area (feels like glass particles in there) is between lv 2 and 1.
