Oppressive feeling in the chest and mid back

Chest pain

Chest pain

The patient, a 51 year old woman, complained of oppressive pain in the chest and mid back area. She said it happened after she had lunch with her friends and cool tea. She used to have the same conditions before.

A feeling of oppression settled in her chest and mid back, as if a heavy weight were pressing down on her lungs. It was difficult to draw a breath, and when she did it felt as if she were having stuck and heavy sensations.

She was reluctant to receive acupuncture treatment. Since her pulses felt too much pressure. I applied needles at L1, T11, T9, T7, T6 and T5. I bled BL14 and 15. She felt slightly better but she still complained of the feeling.

I prescribed her with Jupi Dahuang Poxiao Tang: Jupi 6g, Dahuang 4g and Mangxiao 4g. After taking just one portion, she started to feel relieved immediately. I asked her to complete taking the whole portion. I also prescribe her with the same formula of three day portions so that she will not develop the same condition in the future.

Herbal medicine has been used for centuries to treat a variety of ailments, and there are many effective home remedies for chest pain. In some cases, herbal remedies can be used to treat chest pain without the risk of side effects or drug interactions that come with prescription medications. The active compounds in many herbal remedies, such as Jupi, may also have the ability to reduce the severity or duration of chest pain.
