33 Case: A 27-year-old woman had been suffering from pre-menstrual tension for 13 years (more or less ever since her menarche). She had two children and the pre-menstrual tension became worse after each birth. Her main symptoms were abdominal distension, severe irritability, anger and aggressiveness. She had been given a progesterone pill but this had not helped and had only given her headaches. Her periods were regular, lasted 4 days and were heavy; the menstrual blood was bright red. She also suffered from constipation and, on interrogation, it transpired that she experienced backache and dizziness, she often felt cold, she had cold feet and her urination was frequent and pale. She did not sleep well and occasionally experienced some tingling of her limbs. Her tongue was pale and slightly thin with teeth marks. Her pulse was wiry. P362 Giovanni Maciocia
