3. A woman, aged 40, in May 1980 complained of a headache that hadplagued her for many years. The history indicated bouts of right temporalpain that began 20 years ago, often preceded by nervous tension or overfatigueand aggravated during menses. She experienced also boring pain in the righttemporal region accompanied by cramping pain of the right eye. The boutsusually subsided after three days, sometimes with slight pain remaining.Modern examination showed no positive. Her case was diagnosed by theinternist as one of vascular headache. Other positive findings obtained with thetraditional Chinese diagnostic procedures included: flushed face, restlessness,irritability, poor appetite with bitter taste in the mouth, constipation (one b.m.in two or three days), reddened tongue with a thin yellow coating, and a thintaut pulse, weak at the left cubit.Questions:
Refer to the differentiation of syndromes according to the Zang-Fu organsand channels to decide whether the following diagnoses are true or false andexplain.
A: This is a case of headache due to attack of wind on the Shaoyangchannel,
B: This is a case of headache due to Shaoyang involvement, obstruction ofliver Qi and exuberance of liver yang.
C: This is a case of headache caused by endogenous wind from the liverdue to deficiency of yin and exuberance of liver yang.Key to the answer:
A and B are false, C is true.
It is wrong to attribute hemicrania to attack of channels by wind.When we speak of attack of channels by wind we are referring to attack byexogenous wind, which is characterized by paraxysmal pains and absenceof any symptoms indicating involvement of internal viscera. Headache dueto attack of channels by wind is an excessive symptom-complex which is notprecipitated by fatigue or menses. On the other hand, this is a case of headachedu to internal involvement that has nothing to do with exogenous wind.
Paraxysmal pains accompanied by synchronized eye involvement indicatesthe presence of wind, but rather than exogenous wind, it is endogenous windfrom the liver du to deficiency of yin and exuberance of liver yang.
