Mrs. F, a Citizen of Singapore
29/f, married, mother of 2 kids, doing job comes with severe bout of hyperacidity with
unbearable burning pain in chest,
reflux of acidic, constant nausea, vomiting if anything eaten
profound weakness & severe headache
She is lean , thin, short, wearing specks & a cap. Comes to the clinic held by her brother & mother. She is unable to walk by her own due to profound weakness. She is feeling giddy & drowsy. Unable to sit in chair she slides down into the chair & supporting her arms on table and dropping her head on them. While sitting like this, she prefers talking in less, soft & slow due to weakness. She does not prefer A.C. but fanning & fresh air coming from open windows. She shivers with chills with severe burning in chest.
She is on Allopathic medication for her complaints without any relief. Her complaints are since 3 years. She is anxious, and worried about her health as since 3 years she has been to many doctors without any improvement. Feeling helpless, she even has been to religious people for their help. She feels angry & being unfair to her as in spite of doing so much to solve her problems. According to brother & mother she takes much tension & stress in her life. The job she is doing is stressful. Also some family & financial tensions going in her life.
