I can sleep standing

I am a 40 y.old woman in a good health.
I am overweight by about 80LB but had been my whole life.
I am extremely sleepy most of my life. I am enjoying sleeping so much except it is on the way of my life.
My mother who is NOT overweight and 62 is the same way. Our blood pressure is normal 110/80.
We are just dedicated sleepers. It is like a sport to us. We enjoy it.
My Mom is very energetic at night though. She cleans, sewing and had been like that whole life.
I do not have these energy bursts. I am a couch potato.
But I do peak myself by the hair to cook and do things with my child but all the time i am awake i wish i was sleeping.
I want more energy and I wish something helped me.
Is there anything like it?

These 2 wasn't easy to find, so i had ordered online and waiting.
Hopefully it will be affective.
More people I talked to have exsessive sleepiness desire.
So I will be a guinea pig.

thank you

P.S. You said
2.- One day after, NUX MOSCHATA 30c
Does it mean next day?
I can't figure out if i should take
1st day MEDORRHINUM
2nd day nothing
3rd day NUX MOSCHATA

or

1st day MEDORRHINUM
3rd day NUX MOSCHATA.

thanks

Just want to say I had received my remedies.
I will have so much of the MEDORRHINUM left so if anyone needs it - I can send it to them, it is pretty costly and I do not want any money - just not to waste a good stuff.

Thanks so much.
 
Clarewish last decade
Dear Clarewish:
Don't worry about Medorrhinum. It's a great investement and it has no caducity. Keep it and perhaps you or your daugther need it in the future.
Best and warmest regards
Andrés

Dear Dr.Andres!
I took MEDORRHINUM once as was suggested on Saturday so i can continue with the secon remedy on Monday.
However on Monday my husband had a heart attack and I went to the hospital with him. Today he is back and fine.
What would you recommend I do now? MEDORRHINUM again?

Thanks so much.

P.S. Does homeopathy helping people after heart attack? Thanks
 
Clarewish last decade
Dear Clarewish:
Please, you don't need more Medorrhinum. One dosis is enough. Follow with Nux moschata.
About the heart attack, homeopathy can help to restore your husband's health, but we need symptoms rather than diagnosis.
Sorry me, but these days I'm out home. I'll come back home on Monday. I'll post the questionnaire then.
Take care yourself and warmest regards
Andrés

Thanks doc, have a goot time off.
 
Clarewish last decade
Dear Clarewish:
I've seen you have posted your husband's questionnaire in a new thread. Good job.
I have had no time to read it at all, but Dr.Prodip's advices surely may be right at all.
Best regards
Andrés

I am sure he was absolutely right but I was waiting for your comments. Thanks

Dear Dr.Andres!
I am taking Nux moschata for a week. I am steel very dedicated sleeper and I could have done it right at this moment...lol
I think I need more time with Nux moschata.
What do you think?
 
Clarewish last decade
Very Dear Clarewish:
The principal point of interest is your symptoms. If you have had annoyed symptoms, but you still feel yourself sleeper, then please, continue with Nux Moschata one week more. After this week, report and we'll value your improvements.
Warmest regards

No

I forgot - I have psoriasis of the scalp, it is running in family on my father side.
I am using shampoo with tar and it is ok.
 
Clarewish last decade
Dear Clarewish:
Your information about psoriasis is the most important. Nux moschata doesn't cover this symptom, nor Medorrhinum. Resuming, we have been wrong in this prescription, because we only watch the sleep symptoms with hunger and anxiety, but not the skin symptoms.
Please, how do you know this is psoriasis? Can you give me information about it? Dry scames? Itching? Bleeding? When better? When worst? Any symptom in your nails? Do you feel your tongue is dirty? ...
Are you a fanatic with tyding up? Do you have piles? Do you feel burnt in your stomach or in your abdomen or when stool?
Warmest regards
Andrés

Please, how do you know this is psoriasis?
It is slightly itching...I am an idiot, sorry, not psoriasis - seborrea it is!!!
This a is a family thing.

Can you give me information about it? Dry scames? Itching? Bleeding?
If I am not using my shampoo with tar it will itch. Slightly. If I do not wash my hair for 2 days - it will get some build up like a dandruff.
When better? When worst?
It is ok if I wash it every other day. No particular inflamation because of something.
Any symptom in your nails?
My 2 thumbs have some sort of 'bad' nails since I was 12.
I am picking those 2 and they grow wavy not flat straight nails like others.

Do you feel your tongue is dirty? ... No
Are you a fanatic with tyding up? Not a t all
Do you have piles? I don't know waht is it, sorry.
Do you feel burnt in your stomach or in your abdomen or when stool? No

Thanks

Dear Clarewish:
Can you post a photo of your nails (as best as you are able ;))
Warmest regards

Dear dr. Andres,
I think Sulpher-1m one dose would help the patient overall or will elobrate the symptoms for further advice/treatment.
