Struggling about Headache? Try these Methods | 还在为头痛烦恼?你应该试试这种方法

March 21, 2017

There is an old Chinese saying:”The patients always worry about more and the doctors always worry about less”. It means, the patients tend to worry about having various kinds of illness (since they are lack of medical knowledge), and the doctors always worry about they do not know enough methods to heal the patients. This is particularly true about headache. Years ago when I was working as a doctor in a hospital in Shenzhen, China, there were two cases of headache that made very deep impression to me. One is a mid-aged man, who is suffering from very serious headache——his friends were saying he was taking “truck loads of medicine”, and the medicine are become less and less effective to a point that he had to use antalgic pills. His headache was so bad that he could not normally work or do any business. The other one was a woman in her 60’s. Her problem was that she could not be exposed to any wind or she would have a headache. Therefore she could not go out of her home easily, nor could she open the windows in her home as the wind would blow in causing her headache. Living in a city close to Hong Kong, you may imagine how hot it would be for her and her whole family when the windows were kept closed most of the time.

 

 

 

Headache is one of the most common illness with various causes, but the doctors’ methods to heal headache are rather invariable. According to an article I read, in one year, there are about 50% of people who would experience headache, and about 18% would experience migraine. More seriously, some of the patients would suffer so much that the pain could not be controlled by medicine, or they are in a special period (for example, pregnancy), so they cannot take medicine.

 

Several years ago when I was teaching in the International Chinese Medicine Academy, a female student was brought to me by her classmates for help. She had extremely serious headache caused by “exam stress”, and she was also in her 8th month of pregnancy at that time. No other students dared to heal her due to her special situation. However, as the clinical practice instructor, I had to do something as an example to the students. I saw that her face is flushing red and the vein on her temple was visibly beating. Therefore, on the level I saw safe, I picked the pain-pressure point on her temple and did some blood-letting puncture---this reduced her headache immediately.

 

Headache is causing pain both in the patients and among the doctors---the doctors are constantly panicking for having too few methods of healing. Luckily, acupuncture has outstanding effects in dealing with headache. There are constantly headache patients in my clinic, including migraine, headache caused by menstruation, injury, stress, high blood pressure, etc..

 

 

 

For headache I have these special techniques: 1. Looking for the acupuncture points on the feet for headache; 2. Using blood-letting puncture method on the specific area or the back. Most of the patients would be much relieved in two hours after these two steps. In healing headache, the doctor who does not really know what they are doing usually chooses from several different methods, while the ones who really know what they are doing quickly realize what method to use.

 

Hope all you readers are free of headache!

中国古代有一句至理名言,“病患患病多,医患医道少”。也就是说,病人总是担心自己会得多种疾病,而医生却总是感觉治疗方法不足。这段话对于头痛来说,尤其贴切。多年前当我还在国内深圳市行医的时候,有两个头痛的病例让我记忆犹。其中有一位中年男性,别人形容他吃的治疗头痛的药物“至少可以装一个皮卡”而且药物越来越不好用,只好用镇静剂。每天晕晕乎乎,头脑不清,导致生意也不能正常进行;另一位是个60岁左右的女性,她的症状是不能吹任何风,否则就会头痛难忍。因此她不敢轻易出门,家里也不能开窗,一开窗就头痛——深圳市紧靠香港,大家可以想象一下在深圳的天气下不开窗对她一家人是怎样的影响。

 

头痛是最常见的病症之一,而医生的治疗手段却很单一。据我以前看过的资料,一年之内有过头痛的人大约占总人口的50%,偏头痛的发病率是18%。更严重的是,有的时候病人头痛难忍,不能用药物控制,或者正在特殊时期(如妊娠期)不能服药。

 

几年前我在国际中医学院教书的时候,有一个学校的女学生在同学的帮助下来找我。她是因为考试紧张而引起的剧烈头痛,而且这个时候她已经怀孕差不多八个月。因为她情况特殊,没有同学敢给她治疗。我作为教学临床的老师,必须给学生做一个示范。我看到她面色发红,太阳穴有血管跳动,因此,在我认为安全的基础上,取太阳穴上的压痛点刺络,头痛随之减轻。

 

 

 

 

病人头痛,医生更头痛。因为医生的治疗办法太少。幸运的是,针灸在治疗头痛方面有非凡的作用。头痛的病人在我的诊所里从来没有少过,有经期头痛,偏头痛,外伤头痛,紧张性头痛,高雪压头痛等等。对于这方面的治疗我有几个心得:1.上有病下取之。即头痛在脚上取穴位;2.刺络放血。在局部或背部穴位上刺络。一般经过这两个步骤,病人大多数头痛迅速减轻,两个小时后则明显减轻。这点是对于头痛的体会。外行人治疗头痛会有多个疗法选择,而内行人一看就知道如何去治疗。

 

祝各位读者身体健康,没有头痛!
