Wind Dampness

This is a type of Wind-Cold but combined with Dampness. Dampness obstructs the clear orifices of the head and gives rise to a headache with a typical feeling of heaviness. The head feels muzzy, as if it was wrapped in a cloth. This sensation would be aggravated by damp weather. Dampness prevents the clear Yang from reaching the head and brightening the orifices and the turbid Yin from descending. This causes the typical muzzy feeling, heavy head, poor concentration and heavy eyes. Other symptoms and signs include: aversion to cold, shivers, possibly a fever, a sensation of oppression in the chest and epigastrium, a feeling of heaviness of the whole body, a runny nose with a white discharge, a sticky tongue coating and a Floating-Slippery pulse.
