Case Study

48 year old female

CC: Insomnia, hot flashes, eczema on elbows and knees, severe bouts of constipation with stomach pain 

SX: Hot flashes start in afternoon and continue into evening. Wakes 5-6 times a night with disturbed dreams and hot flashes. Her head, back, and chest are sweaty but not drenched upon waking in the night. She feels groggy and lethargic upon waking. She has abdominal pain fixed in her lower intestinal area and likely a result of constipation; it abates with bowel movement. She feels like her life is generally “irritated and out of control.”

HX: Constipation has been a problem since her teens and seems to have worsened with hormonal changes.

Other Info:

  • Goes to sleep at a regular time and has no trouble falling asleep. Wakes 5-6 times per night. Needs 2 cups of coffee to get moving in the morning.
  • She has removed spicy and histamine rich foods from her diet as well as alcohol and is drinking eight 8 oz glasses of water a day.
  • She has changed her exercise from running to walking and swimming at her local Rec center as not to aggravate heat in her body.
