Here is the more detailed info (thanks for replying Chad!)
Trying to concieve for the past 2 years. One miscarriage at 8 weeks term. No appetite, cold hands and feet, slight stress due to lack of conception, wakes up feeling tired, but has no trouble getting to sleep, a bit of a light sleeper, period is regular, cramps in the first few days. Work is not stressful and is regular- no shift work. Pulse is thready/sl. wiry, thin, tongue is normal to slightly pale but not too bad, normal thin white tongue fur. She's about 5'7/8 or so, thin body.
Last treatment consisted of:
LU 7 w/ KD 6
Other points often used LI 4 and LV 3(if prior to ovulation),
SP 6, KD 3, REN 4, REN 6, Zigong, Taiyang, Yintang, GB 13,
DU 24, BL 15, BL 17, BL 20, BL 21, BL 23.
At the moment I have her taking Gui Pi Tang by Golden Flower Chinese Herbs. She doesn't have trouble sleeping but wakes up feeling very tired. Since taking it, and with regular treatments, her appetite has improved and her hands and feet are less cold. At this point the energy levels are still sluggish and she gets bloated after eating dinner (her largest meal)
I've diagnosed her with LV Xue Xu, SP Qi Xu, slight Xue Xu
Migraine history...she's had them a few years. They are typically one sided, above one eye/forehead. THe spread a little to side of head but tend to come back to the original location. Thumping quality. These drain her energy completely and she is nauseous. She finds that she can't do anything when she gets them, no control over them at all.
I'm hoping that with the reg. treatments and the herbs, we will see a decrease in them. I haven't been treating her migraines much yet as her primary reason for seeing me is fertility. In a couple of weeks, I may change her formula to an Essence tonifying one that focuses more on her KD's.
She has a good diet already but I've also advised her on Xue nourishing foods and SP strengthening foods as well.
Everything I've read concerning migraine/headaches tells me I've advised her as much as I can...but maybe someone out there has had great success with this type of pattern in regards to the migraines. I've also read differing opinions about whether to treat the migraine *during* it, as this can either help or possibly worsen it.
Any opinions are appreciated, if you need more info, please let me know!
