Qi Stagnation

by Whitney
(Atlanta)

My main complaint was basilar migraine. Literally, the blood in the basilar artery was being blocked from the rest of my brain. These are "stroke like" migraines. I had seen traditional neurologists for years. They did find a medicine (Topamax) that did help me. But, I was getting married and wanted kids. Topamax causes horrible things to the fetus and takes up to 3 years to get out of the system. I went through a painful withdrawal period. After a year or so of the migraines, I turned to acupuncture. The acupuncturist also gave me guasha, some sort of menthal type balm, and prescribed at home exercises and diet for me. I went from having migraines all but 3 days of the month during most months, to having a migraine every other month or so, and they last only a few hours and I am still able to go out and do things I want with them.
