I googled n got the impression that 脾虚 causes hormone imbalance which I think causes the onset of menopause.

After first dose of the herb prescription, I did not get migraine. My feet also become normal size, previously both feet were swollen, then right feet normalized, left feet still a little swollen. Maybe the water retention is caused by menses.

This morning also did not wake up with a heavy head.

The only concern is I feel more hungry. Ate 2 small bowls of rice during dinner.

Ever since I drank the herbs prescription, I do not suffer an episode of migraine.

But the bowel pattern still erratic.

You seeing the gastroenterologist? Just consultation or doing scope?

A staff was complaining of gastro reflux, heart palpitation, irritable bowels, etc. Basically feeling unwell. Unable to eat as she feels very bloated. She is already rather skinny and still losing weight. Did tests after tests. Finally did a scope.

During the scope they found many many polyps in her stomach. Doctors did a biopsy and at the same time, removed 25 of them. The test came back benign which is a relief. Since then, she is feeling much better. No more bloatedness or reflux, lesser irritable bowels and is starting to gain a bit of weight.

25?!?! And just the stomach alone?

Yah. Just stomach. When she told us all of us also :yikes: But she said doc told her that is considered normal. He once did a guy 75 polyps and more to go but cannot do all at once.

Did she overeat or lack something in her diet prior to that?
