Overactive mind

This is pretty much how I have been for as long as I can remember. I've been this way since I was a child. However, recently I have noticed that if I go to work tired, these problems aren't nearly as noticeable. Communicating with people is so much easier because my mind isn't all over the place trying to guess what they might be thinking.

Here are the symptoms:

* Heightened self-consciousness. (feels as though people are always watching me and thinking only about me the whole time)
* People Pleaser (difficulty saying no of anything less than ideal for fear of hurting other people's feelings)
* Overly sensitive to criticism
* Overactive mind after stimulating day at work (very good day, stressful day, long preiods of driving). Difficulty concentrating on any one issue or sleeping while like this.
* Fidgety (biting nails, picking at sides of fingers etc. Not only when stressed but often in everyday life)
* Low self-esteem/self image at times
* Mild to moderate obsession with sexual stimuli

*All symptoms are worse after caffiene

Any suggestions are most welcome.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Don't use anything that stimulates, Look up Medhorrinum on the Remedy Finder here and see if it fits your overall character.
then report here to go on with a remedy.

Medorrhinum fits reasonably well, particularly the nasal congestion, which is something I have a lot of.

The only other remedy I found that I wondered about was Silicea, which seems to be more suited to some of the insecurity symptoms. What do you think?
greaneyr last decade
Medhorrinum is a nosode, which means it is one of the bottom lines of all ills, remove this and you find that everything eventually clears up. But, it does not mean that it clears things up in sequence. Meaning the mind clears first, then any emotional baggage, then physicals, Textbook order. Sometimes it doesn't work in this order, However, that is not a real problem. If you wish, order a 200c liquid, from Helios or Ainsworths. four or five drops on the tongue, once at night then same again the next morning, no more. Wait, and look for any change in your disposition. Report back here in a week after you take it. Silica may be better indicated after that or even another remedy.

there is a mix of layers here-----better start with sulphur -dont mess with medorrhinum--take tests dose of 30c -- 1 pellet in 4 oz water- stir -- one teaspoon dose--NO REPEAT and STAY AWAY FROM SWEETS AND ALCOHOL

I have had a little trouble tracking down a supplier of Medorrhinum (I live in New Zealand and didn't want to pay for shipping out of the UK) and was a little hesitant about it, so have tried 30c Sulphur. I took several (4) doses 15 minutes apart (as recommended on the bottle) at night. I started to feel very tired and sleepy as though the lack of sleep I've had lately had suddenly caught up on me.

Wasn't the greatest night to test it since my 8.5 month old son woke several times and my sleep was interrupted so I'm feeling very tired this morning. However, today things do feel a little less 'hurried' in my mind. It's probably not the ideal test case though since this is exactly the time when I normally felt less of the nervous system issues I spoke of earlier however.

I will await your advice before taking any more doses.

I get most of my remedies from Lincoln rd Pharmacy, Henderson vally Auckland. Have old phone number, may be the same 09 836 8576.
If the remedy was the right one for you I would have expected a brightening of the mind, at least a boost in energy, not sleepiness. Don't take anything else for now just watch how you feel for a week and then report back here.

I've been looking through a few different places that describe the 15 different constitutions and have to admit to finding several that describe me rather well. Sulphur sounds like me, but then so does Nux Vomica, for instance. There are others that match reasonably well too. Are you meant to belong to just one type, or is it possible to belong to several?
greaneyr last decade
One remedy at a time for years then it can change to another, this is whats known as layers, but if you are self administering hpathic remedies to yourself it is quite difficult to find the right one first time, can be done trial and error way and a lot of studying.

i took the quick Remedy Finder and here's what it has come up with thus far. sulphur is certainly a close contender but perhaps not the best?

greaneyr last decade
hmm.. inserting the code didn't seem to work.

in case that link doesn't work, it's 86% for nux vomica, 82% for sulphur, 77% for pulsatilla
greaneyr last decade
Going forward from the last post, I've now done some quite extensive research and am about 95% confident I am a Nux Vomica type. The 'always in a hurry', busy minded, often highly strung, seeking pleasure and stimulation is definitely me. Plus, many of the other ailments I hadn't even thought of showed up in the type as well.

As far as effects go, what should I be feeling if it is a good match? Would I expect it to treat all the undesirable symptoms I have that are listed for this remedy?
