Hi everyone. I’m a long time acupuncture-enthusiast and I’m becoming interested in herbs. The problem is I have no idea where to start - I’m overwhelmed by all my research. I developed all of these illnesses in the same year so I have a strong feeling that they’re related but I’m having trouble piecing it all together and finding the right diagnosis. I want to know what is wrong with me and what kind of herbs I should look into.
Chronic insomnia: I can’t fall asleep without sleeping pills and I often have strange dreams. Once I finally fall asleep I don’t wake up until morning.
Dysmenorrhea: Suspected endometriosis. I have severely painful stabbing pain during menstruation, mainly on the lower right side, followed by vomiting and fainting. Sometimes a panic attack.
Seizures or “hysteria”: I’ve had non-epileptic seizures since I was 12. They are triggered by stress. It’s also called Conversion Disorder.
