Case Number 64

Abstract

The patient’s main symptom in this case is pain in the rib cage and the sides of the umbilicus. A doctor, after examining the patient, prescribes a pill that dispels cold, directs rebellious qi downwards, warms the yang and regulates the qi. Xu, after his own examination of the patient, asserts that the other doctor drew a wrong conclusion. Xu then explains that the Immature Yang gall bladder circulation tract runs along the sides of the body, so that pain in the sides is natural. He provides a full list of symptoms for this syndrome.
