Sleeplessness- Cervical spondylosis

I have been undergoing homeopathy treatment for the following since June 2007:

Sleeplessness - I go to bed at about 10.30 and able to sleep well till 2 or 3 a.m.after which I am wide awake till morning.

Numbness - While at bed sometimes I feel my little and ring fingers of both hands going numb- by shaking the fingers, immediately they become normal. Sometimes this also affects my sleep

Back pain - I am diagnosed as having Bone spur formation in C 4, C 5 and C 6. I have some mild pain / inflammation on the spine in these region.

Genital itching
Thigh bone inflammation
Tremor in the right thumb

I had calco, acidum phosphoricum, cocculus in wet dosage over 5 months.

I also had Petrol, Nux vomica, natrum mur, calc phos as single dose ( for one day only ) at the start of every month treatment.

My problems of sleeplessness and numbness still remain, while other symptoms have been cured substantially.

I am male 46 years old 1.74 cm height, 73 kg weight, I was depressed since Jan 2007 due to my fathers' demise. My fasting sugar went upto 126 . I did a half hour walk daily and brought sugar and cholesterol within limits . I am a Chartered Accountant and work on computers for about 6 hrs a day, though the job is not a stressful one. My doc attributed my Cervical spondylosis to work on computers.
Currently my homeopath has left India and hence my treatment has come to a stop since Dec beginning.

My sleepless problem has now incresed and I am hardly having 3-4 hrs sleep a day.

Can somebody help me?

At night please take Cofea-200 and Aconite 200 (3 drops each at bed time.

My advice will be to try the tissue salts (calc.flour and Kali phos) only.

Also please do these simple neck exercises morning and evening.

Dr. Mahfoozurrehman and Mr. Murthy

Thanks for your medicine which has done wonders!!!


I took the recommended dosage of Calc. flour 12 X and Kali phos 12X, for a week starting 12 jan 08 to 18 jan 08. I did not take any other medicine and report as follows;

Numbness:
On the second night of the medication, there was incresed frequency of feeling numbness ( 5 or 6 times during night), but from 5th night onwards, it was not felt on both hands. However yesterday night ( 20 Jan 08) numbness recurred but only in the left hand only once.

Now, should I wait and watch or should I resume calc flour, if numbness recurs? If so what is the dosage?

Sleeplessness:

Earlier I could sleep well for about 4 to 4 1/2 hours and was wide awake from about 3 a.m. Now, after I started Kali Phos, though I wake up at about 3 a.m. I am able to get back to sleep after taking 2 pills of kali phos. I am able to sleep for about 6 to 6 1/2 hours, in total and I no longer feel irritated in the daytime due to sleep deprivation.

Should I continue to have Kali phos, if and when my sleep is disturbed?

Back Pain: well under control, though occasionally there is mild pain.

Thanks God it is happening good with you.

I am of the view that these are tissue salts and thre is not harm to take them for an other 1/2 weeks. Please go ahead and report.

You can give a break for calc.flour for a week and observe.

You can continue Kali phos on PRN (as and when required) basis.

Don't forget the neck exercises. They are as effective as the medicines for cervical spondylosis.
