please take RHUS TOX 200C one dose every morning empty stomach and KALMIA LATIFOLIA 30C during noon, evening and night ( thus, two to three times ) for some days.

do the above for 7 days and note the changes. if you get relief, continue it for some more days till you get significant relief.

if absolutely no relief, please come back for alternate prescription.

evrajesh last decade
You can add Arnica 30 alongwith the existing medicines.
 
Rajendra last decade
Add causticum, Bryonia,Guijacum,Lycopodium too.

Hopefully atleast one of them works, and if not, and even if it leads to irreversible problems who cares? : (

I never knew that prescribing homeopathic remedies can become so easy.

If you are really interested to know what is not homeopathy, read this

Mr. Murthy! This is no way to advise.

Rhus Tox, Led.P and arnica together have shown very good results to many in such conditions.

In Arthritis there is injury/damage to muscle fibers which are healed by Arnica.

Rhus Tox and Led. P. are good for other defects.
 
Rajendra last decade
What will you do in case this protocol fails to relieve?

Murthy
 
gavinimurthy last decade
Hi,

Led P in noon evening and night.
