Patient: Woman 24 years
Pain: Can reach 5/10
Complaint: Abdominal Pain, diagnosed as IBS by GP. This pain is inconsistent, coming on at various times of day and night. It was found to be related to a poor diet.
There was also low back pain, mainly caused by pain referral from the gut.
This condition troubled this Lady, on and off, since her teens.
Treatment: Acupuncture of Trigger Points in the Abdomen made a huge difference. The pain cleared in 2 treatments.
The patient was advised to change to a Wheat Free Diet and improve her eating habits.
Prognosis: Very good, but if the patient does eat Wheat, her IBS symptoms return for a day or so.
