The patient is a male with the age of 40s.
He complains that he has had irregular and fast pulse for a few days. His other complaints which have started with irregular and fast pulse are seeing something like stars when he opens his eyes, chest pain and sometimes difficulty in breathing.
Irregular pulse disappeared right after the first acupuncture treatment.
The number of fast pulse gradually decreased and disappeared after the forth acupuncture treatment.
The acupuncture treatment is based on Individual Acupuncture for Adult.
According to my diagnosis, I found weakness in his Lung energy and touched a Lung point in his elbow with a round-tip needle for a few seconds. After that, I tapped around his neck and head with another round-tip needle and let him rest for 15 minutes.
After the 15 minutes rest, his pulse was calm down and there was no irregular pulse.
I had him lie on his stomach, checked pressure-pain points on his back and gave general back treatment and the treatment to remove the pressure-pain.
After the first treatment, his pulse became slower and there was no irregularity.
On the second and third treatment, he didn’t have irregular pulse but fast pulse. I chose a point to slow down the pulse and touched the point with a round-tip needle. (I use acupuncture points on Yang meridian to slow down the pulse instead of the points on Yin meridian. In this case, I used a point on Small Intestine meridian.) The treatment on his back was the same as the first treatment.
On the forth treatment, he told me that he had had fast pulse with palpitation the day before, but his main complaint was digestive issue and a sty on his right eye. When I checked his pulse, his pulse was not fast.
When he came back for the fifth treatment, he said he hadn’t had fast pulse, so the treatment for irregular and fast pulse ended.
