She then started having back spasms, left shoulder pain, and arm pain. For the past few months she has been having severe chest pain. She went to numerous Western doctors and had every test imaginable and was put on pain meds from Vicodin to Ultram (an opiate). She felt like the insides of her chest walls were tearing” and she started getting shortness of breath. The pain was so bad that she went to the hospital in January of 2004 because she thought she was having a heart attack. The hospital found nothing wrong with her and sent her home with more pain medication. Karen also became insulin resistant from stress and developed Type 2 Diabetes. She was so fatigued that she could not vacuum her house or walk her dog. After one treatment with Dr. Tong, she felt like a completely different person. Her chest pain subsided considerably and she also felt emotionally more stable. Her blood sugar has stabilized and she has discontinued her diabetic medication. She even had enough energy to vacuum her house and walk her dog for the first time in months. She has decided to continue treatments with Dr. Tong.
