Wind Heat

Wind-Heat obstructs the clear orifices in the head and leads to a headache which is felt inside the head and is distending in character. It can be very severe and cause the head to feel as if it was being "cracked". This headache, like that from Wind-Cold, also has an acute onset and can last only while the pathogenic factor is in the Exterior. Other symptoms and signs include: aversion to cold, shivers, fever, slight thirst, runny nose with a yellow discharge, a sore throat, possibly swollen tonsils, red eyes, slightly dark urine, slightly red sides or tip of the tongue and Floating-Rapid pulse. The aversion to cold and shivers would be less pronounced than in Wind-Cold and the fever would be more pronounced.
