Inflammation in lungs


#1

Hi. I had some acupuncture today and got a Chinese herbal remedy to help with my respiratory inflammation . Can anyone tell me if its good to use heat to ease the pain because I am currently using heat pad but not sure if it will make inflammation worse. Any help or tips would be great. Lia

It’s hard to answer because it is unclear where the pain is or what the cause is? You mention lung inflammation but that generally doesn’t hurt - so are you uncomfortable from the treatment you had with your practitioner? - or something else?

Either way, heat is generally the best for most pain related conditions (except nerve pain) as you want to improve circulation and healing not create stagnation (which is generally what ice does). For the most part you have to use your own sense of what is helpful - if it feels like it helps the pain then great. You are certainly not going to drive an infection deeper (except, possibly, a topical one) by using a heating pad.

For the most part I would just give your practitioner 3-7 treatments to get you on a good course and you should be fine. And, obviously, the one to ask these types of questions to is the one who knows your entire medical history and that is your own practitioner.

Thank you for your reply.it makes sense about the heat now.I wonder why you
say no heat for nerve pain?I have alot of nerve pain in my body.I have pain
in my shoulder blade from coughing and tightness from emotional stress I am
going through at the moment.my immune system is low so finding it hard to
get rid of inflammation or maybe still bit of infection in my chest.I’m
hoping the acupuncture and herbal remedy will help.it’s has been on going
off and on for months.had xray and was fine.thanks lia.
