Please narrate what causes or increases the pain and what ameliorates the pain or what actions or circum stances reduces the sufferring.

Pls narrate in detail what other diseases the patient suffered with in the past(from child hood till today) suffered with.

After midnight - increased the pain (restless)

After 10-11 AM feel better.

Pressing on leg calves relieves temporarily.

Keep moving postions for comfort.

Left hand is almost paralytic. Unable to move freely.

Unable to stand - too much pain.

Folding/unfolding of knees increas the pain with cracking sound.

She didn't have any other major desease. She had one mental trauma in the family and this problem started right around same time. Another correlation is - her mens cycle had stopped before this problem started. Also this problem started from feet and moved upward slowly.

Rhus-tox 200 was administered twice and then stopped why? If Rhus tox gave such a good relief why was it stopped.?

Also inform how patient reacts to touch.

How is skin of patient? any growths.

Which joints are the most painful?

HOw is her thirst?
If she drinks is it little or more at a time or not at all?

How does she react to the sun or heat and to Colds?

There is no problem with touch. However she feels more pain on movement/folding of limbs (legs/hands)

Skin is very loose - looks like wrinkled on hands. Other places okay.

Most pain joints are both knees and left wrist.

Thirst is normal (neither more nor less).

She feels cold most of the time. In general doesn't like colds.

One more symptom: Fever increases in the evening and in the morning fever comes down with sweating.
