I started to go to an acupuncturist for elbow joint pain a few weeks ago. They typically treat me with LI 4/11 and several other points that I am not knowledgeable enough to know. I've recently developed several other symptoms (below), but my acupuncturist refuses to consider that I might have some kind of background imbalance. Any ideas on what might be going on here?
For as long as I can remember I've had dark circles underneath my eyes and been easily exhausted. I've put myself through a lot of mental and physical stress In the past to finish my schooling. I've injured my right elbow and right hip. Work induced repetitive elbow use led me to initially start going acupuncture.
I still have the dark circles under my eyes, but recently I've gotten very hyperactive and full of energy. Trouble is, it's too much energy as I often have insomnia. My heart sometimes races and I occasionally feel great anger. I have to watch what I say as to not be mean in public. Both my elbow and hip joints feel like they're getting more inflamed: they are starting to hurt worse I think. Also, I have little appetite and sometimes ringing in my right ear. If it helps, I am a mid-20s male with no history of drug use and only moderate social drinking.
