I had gastritis since last 8 years. Past 3-4 years problems worsened. It seems when I get exposed to cold weather I get flare up which goes on for months. I get indigestion, loss of apetite and lot of gas. I take PPI - Prevacid for past 8 years now. I was on homeopathic med and was doing great improvement. I am veg and take great care in what I eat. I cannot eat anything warm in nature. Like Garlic. I went to ayurvedic doctors and they read pulse and they said that I am on fire. Now past three months I have noticed that I get unbearably bad during my period or ovulution time. I will get bouts anyday and I will be better one day. During periods or ovulution I also will get insomnia. Last month I went without sleep for 4 nights. I dread this time of the month. I get fatigue and also some fog and anxiety during this time. I started accupuncture and have had 6 treatments so far. I think I am sleeping better, apart from that I am not sure if there is any difference in my health.
How long till I see a difference. It is hard to notice change because of hormones change everyday and I feel different everyday.
Also, my accupuncturist says I have ice cold area on my abdomen on the right side. I am wondering if the diagnosis is correct and would incorrect diagnosis worsen my health issues.
