bizarre sleep problem

This has got to be a homeopathic symptom but I haven't found it.

I try to sleep on my back but I wake
up two to three time a night on my
face supported with my elbows - arms
underneath me - shoulders and back
aching from the position.

It is long standing
Any advise?

Oh I am serious. Also interested
in dietary adustments that make
homeopathy more effective.

I am not sure what other info you need
I am small, dark haired, used to have trouble getting to sleep. Magnesium
supplement helped that. Now I have trouble sleeping because the bed gets so uncomfortable.
I wake up in such odd positions. Mostly hands and arms under my torso
and face in pillow...neck and back
ache with the position. However it I go back to sleep I just go back to that position

Sounds so much like a homeopathic
symptom but I cannot find out which.

Also - can you tell me why certain
remedies are unavailable?

Thanks for all your help

bizarre indeed. There are a number of sleep positions in Kent's.

Have you tried this site's remedy finder? Type "sleep positions" into the search box.

If the bed feels hard when you sleep on it and your body feels bruised all the time >>>> ARNICA is the medicine for you.

If the side on which you sleep, begins to pain after some time and you feel very chilly and like to wrap up all the time >>> possibly it is Hepar Sulf. >>> try to match other symptoms of the medicine such as liking to eat pickle, ketchup etc.>>> automatic pus formation around any injury etc.

Anothe possible medicine is BELLIS PERRENIS. if your body is aching as if crushed and trampled.

What time of the night do you wake up??? 3pm is specific to Kali Carb and Nux Vomica.

Kali Carb also has back aches and dry hair condition. (donot take this medicine frequently). It has pain in small spots on the left side.

Need more detailed symptoms to arrive at a specific medicine. Give factors of heridity , constitution, age, city weather where you live etc, as well.
PANKAJ VARMA last decade

heridity - I am Irish/English - my
father had a lot of health problems, angina, diabetes, emotional problems
My mom was delicate of health prone
to digestive illness. My sisters and I are of delicate health and sensitively to chemicals which causes us to be careful so actually I am much less prone to illness than most.
I don't drink or smoke or eat junk foods.
constitution - I tend to be the nux vomica type - irritable and trying to compensate for an overly mental job.
Mentally the mind never stops

age 45

city weather where you live = I live in Northern Virgina. It is humid in the summer, very nice in the fall and spring - cold in the winter with snow
but rarely under 20. I tend to have difficulty in the "extremes" of weather - too cold and dry or too hot and humid.

Thanks for your help

forget calc-phos
John Stanton last decade

You can take:

COCCULUS INDC. 30 C four times a day.

Will restore balance to your very busy mind/ nervous system, take away backache and will help you to sleep better.

PANKAJ VARMA last decade

Forgot to add :

In addition, take MERC. SOLUBILIS 200C one dose every week for four weeks. (Inter-current remedy).

It will help you to cope with the extreme changes in the weather that you find unbearable.

thank you gents

Dear Roxroe, I have been watching this site and agree with the men for the most part.

I feel that the reoccuring sleep position is one of a "protective" nature. Does this seem possible to you for any reason? Anything happen in your childhood to suggest a need for protecting the front of your body? Sabra
