fionag1710 on 2008-02-07
bacterial vaginosis, fishy smelling discharge, discharge like water
2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body?
sensation of lump in throat that does not respond to homeopathic treatments tried so far (lachesis, ignatia)
dizziness on occasion when sitting at computer, like im on a boat, headaches in forehead feels like head is under pressure from inside out, stiff neck, post nasal drip (chronic symptom - had this for years) allergy type symptoms at times, ie irritated nose as if about to sneeze and occasional watery eyes.
3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings?
used to have adrenaline rushes frequently throughout day leaving me feeling anxious but since taking ignatia and trying self hypnosis this has almost vanished completely. Now just feel upset that i cant get rid of the lump in my throat and bacterial vaginosis.
4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst? Describe the sensation in your own words.
for bacterial vaginosis: excessive water-like foul smelling discharge. No itching/burning or otherwise noticeable sympoms just intense smell of fish!
for lump in throat sensation:
Like in choking on food stuck in my throat. worry because i think im choking or have a tumour of some kind, longing to understand whats wrong with my throat. Throat is not caused by anxiety - Ive never been more relaxed and happy in my whole life!
5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?
bacterial vaginosis behan several years ago and has plagued me on and off since then, the only time i know i was rid of it was when i was pregnant, then it disappeared overnight, which made me think its related to hormones. Also when I was on the depo provera contraceptive injection the BV was not present, As soon as off the injection, BV came back. Ive been on metronidazole from the GP but it only gets rid of it temporarily. I now take acidophilius tablets to try to get rid of it.
Throat problems approx 2 months ago, not connected with anything i can recall.
Headaches started over 6 years ago, stiff neck same amount of time, post nasal drip ive had for as long as i can remember, back into childhood
6. Which time of the day you are worst?
BV all day long - discharge worse in morning after a night of sleep.
throat worse in afternoon and evening
7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same? Example- time, temperature, pressure, rubbing, washing, eating, tight clothing etc.
BV - nothing relieves symptoms, sweating increases the smell.
for throat: eating relieves throat symptoms very temporarily. nothing relieves headaches stiff neck and post nasal drip. dizziness solved by sleep. comes back once im up and awake again. Dizziness is much less prevalent after taking ignatia and lachesis.
8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)?
not that im aware of
9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?
cold weather humid - cant tolerate dry atmospheres it feels like i cant breathe, must have windows open all the time for fresh air even in coldest winter or rain
10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.
I have frequent mood swings, changeable, can be arrogant when annoyed, easily aggravated, parents say i have an 'abrasive personality' which i disagree with! partner says im easily put on the defensive. can be funny, enjoy laughing and silly humour. also tend to be depressive and pessimistic a lot, everything is made out to be a disaster even small problems that can be solved feel like they are overwhelming. Easily offended and hold grudges against those who offend me. try not to get close to people for fear of them disliking my personality.
- How do you feel before or during a thunderstorm?
Scared, paranoid ill be hit by lightening! dont like to leave the house.
- Do you like being consoled during your tough times?
Yes and no, enjoy having someone to talk to but if they try to show me the positive side of the situation i instantly disagree and refuse to see anything positive and become defensive against the person. I tend to come round to seeing the positive sides to the problem and create solutions in my own time without guidance from other people.
- Are you sensitive to external stimuli like smell, noise, light etc?
- Do you have any typical habit or gesture like nail biting, causeless
Weeping, talking to one self etc?
Talking to myself to find solutions to problems, nail biting, lip biting, when frustrated I feel like im about to burst into tears. Also suffer with obsessive thoughts about one suject or another and talk about the same thing (whatever im obsessing about at the time) constantly until i bore people rigid! I also have bouts of paranoia that can leave me feeling very tearful and anxious that im going to get into trouble for doing something or someone will try to harm me - totally irrational paranoid thoughts.
- How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your husband / wife?
friends - very loyal to me and good fun, good people in general.
family, not trustworthy, not nice people to be around
children, loving happy children very mature for their ages
partner, passive, very 'stand on the fence' kind of person which aggravates me, but very loving towards me
11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly?
fear of people in general due to paranoia, feel everyone would betray me or harm me in some way if given a chance to.
Fear of dying in pain, not fear of dying as a whole just the pain! Fear of chemicals, fear of cancer.
recurrent dream that im cleaning out my room and take some books off the shelf to find a hamster in a cage that ive forgotten about - the animal is starving to death with no food or water and has been neglected by me, i feel guilty for forgetting the cage was there.

just the BV and the lump in my throat
21. What medications have been taken earlier by you to treat the diseases and do you have any particular symptom surfacing after the medication?
for BV: Metronidazole.
for throat: tried antacids, they provided a little relief, tried Kalms tablets to calm anxiousness to see if throat relaxed, dont work. Ignatia seemed to offer temporary relief, Lachesis aggravated symptoms, now have very intense headaches like pressure building in forehead.
Not taking any medications at present but take probiotics and agnus castus plus a multivitamin every day

once you feel any changes, good or bad, you can report back to me.
you are a hot person and thus your first prescription is nat mur. if this doesnt give relief, you can try other remedies like sepia or nitric acid etc.

if this creats a response, come back for follow up doses.
one dose would be some 3 drops of remedy in some 10 ml of water sipped up in clean mouth and empty stomach.
no food or water one hour before or after.
if it doesnt help at all, come back for an alternate remedy.
