Hi - the herbs on now I named above, they change depending on what cycle day I’m on (follicular formula from approx. days 5-14 and luteal from days 15 till period).
I mostly sleep well, but have some times I wake during the night and my current acupuncturist thinks is from the stress of this.
For the last 8-9 months (before starting acupuncture) I’ve had a lot of morning fatigue, to the point on some days I just have to go back to sleep for another hour or so after getting up to get everyone off for the day. Some months are better than others.
With menstruation I’m having large clots in the blood, which seemed to have started within a few months after having an IUD removed late last year, not sure if that’s just coincidentai. Since acupuncture treatment the menstrual cramps are very minimal, but I am still having large clots. Bleeding is always about 5 days, no changes. I used to have breast pain with PMS, but that has mostly subsided.
No feeling one way or the other after eating. Sometimes a lot of stomach gurgling though. Both my acupuncturists said they see some dampness, and weakened spleen, kidney. I follow the dietary suggestions of limited cold food/drink, not too much raw.
For probably a decade I’ve had cold feet/toes. Only cold hands in the cold months, but feet are sensitive to cold almost all the time.
For the last 3-4 years, had night sweats around my period, especially sweaty on my chest to the point it wakes me.
For the last 6-7 months, have off and on lower back pain, which is something I used to never have in previous years.
First miscarriage was in early February, second was in late May, and started acupuncture in May.
