Iodium?Is the Iodium patient obsessive compulsive? I have been given this diagnosis many times. Have intrusive thoughts that bother me, must pace in order to think. Double checking, etc. Difficult for me to concentrate for long, I frequently start too many projects at once, then become frusturated and abandon all of them. I also have a poor appetite yet i think about food constantly. Diagnosed with mild hypothyroidism. Malnourished, skinny, with bit of a belly, constipation, ruminations. My lymph glands are mildly swollen as well, very weak appetite.
Trouble urinating, dribbling, can't fully empty, burning in urethra. Dont want to get a bladder infection. I feel colon pushing up against bladder, very uncomfortable I am extremely constipated and fatigued. Have trapped gas in lower abdomen.
There are the details,
Might Iodium help me? Most of my symptoms were highlighted in the remedy profile. I know basic principles of homeopathy, not much more, although my family has been using it for a while.
I would appreciate any help you could give me. (22 male by the way)

Dont think so!.
One characteristic is "hesitation irresolution"
Sounds more like Tuberculinum, among others -- check it out.
Trapped gas with rumbling comes under Podophllyn.
Cantharis and causticum cover some of the ureathral symtoms.
passkey last decadeThank you Passkey,
Tuberculinum looks good.
I have nearly all of the mental symptoms, definitely all the highlighted ones.
Causticum looks good too for urinary symptoms. I have some of the respiratory symptoms of this remedy.
Also abdominal symptoms are similar- unsatisfactory urination. (also same with bowel movements)
Abdomen; sensitive to clothing.
Impaction; food lodged in abdomen
I have something in common with all three remedies. I think if you were to ask my parents, they would say cantharis, because I get like that sometimes, usually also when I have burning pain in urethra, and the other urinary problems I mentioned, which are driving me nuts.
It's difficult to go through every one of the symptoms that match though, really.
What do they mean by "destructive behavior"?
constipation and inability to urinate completely is definitely bothering me, and anxiety and uncertainty.
I have cantharis 6X here and there are 30C potencies of all three I believe at the store.
Where may I go from here?
Thank you very much
MorningSky last decadeIf you are using tuberculinum use it first [in 1m potency] and wait 2/3 weeks before using anything else.
