I am 70 years old, I am anorectic due to stomach problems. My stomach can’t stand almost anything. Nausea, bloating, bouts of unbearable pressure in the abdomen and extreme bloating after meals that are relieved if I take lemon juice or stomach acid. I have no appetite.
I’m exhausted from the daily struggle with it. My doctor gave me acupuncture treatment which made me sick during the treatment. He said that my stomach was very bad, that I was tense and had damph. The tongue is pale, lined with a thick white layer for years. I’m swollen under my eyes. Often thick mucus in the throat. For years I have had weak energy in my spleen and stomach.
PTSD makes me constantly in fear, worry, tension. It seems like a total system imbalance. I don’t know where to start.
I’m not a complete layman in acupuncture. I’m trying to help myself. Please advice. Because of the pandemic, I don’t go to treatments.
