Hi there, hoping to get some input on my situation. I am male 25. I have been dealing with what has been diagnosed as kidney defiency, spleen defiency, chi stagnation. This has been going on for two years with symptoms getting progrressivly worse over the course of time. Main symptoms- Incredible fatigue, Insomnia- waking in middle of night, no libido, weak erections, Cold extremities especially genitals., edema in my face, Constipation, etc. Symptoms seem to worsen if i try to exericse with any degree of intensity.
I have tried many non TCM naturapthic doctors with limited success. I started with a tcm Accupuncturist in febuary. I have done twenty treatments, as well as taken various herbal conncotions, with pretty much no change in anything. I am trying hard to rest, avoid excessive exercise, and sexual activity, but its getting tough seeing no improvements
I am wondering if this is normal, or is it time to move on to western doctors and some sort of hormone replacement therapy- something i truly dont want to do.
Also, at two treatments a week + herbs it is getting a bit expensive, especially since im not seeing any
