Hello, a patient of mine (male, 22 years, farmer boy) has tremendous pain in his abdomen for 4 weeks now. Has been in hospital for 3 nights, but they came no furher than the above diagnosis. they advised him to take 6 paracetamol's a day and wait until it's over because they could not do anything for him. I treated him 3 times now and some improvement was achieved. The pain was concentrated around CV 12. I tried to calm down liver yang and treated BL 17 - 20, Liv 1 and 3, SP 6, ST 36. Tonight when he came it was somewhat better, but now around CV 8 his belly is swollen, hard, maybe a lot of gass? He cannot do a lot, as soon as he starts to bike a little bit, also the pain starts again. I looked at your forum (shan disorder?). Spleen meridian seems hard, also stomach is tight. Can I do something for him or send him back to hospital?
