severe acne

ive had acne for as long as i can remember, and ive also have menstrual problems. the only reason i ever got a cycle was because i went on the birth control pills. when i stopped, i never got my period, and i havent had one for over a year now. my skin has been on and off but it has been tolerable until lately. it is so bad that i cannot do anything, i wont work, i wont go out in public...i wont go out with my friends. its making me feel depressed and hopeless, and im to the point where i am going to take accutane, knowing how bad it is for your body. im in desperate need. i saw my naturopath recently, and something he gave me made me somewhat get a period, spotting now, but not full out, and my skin is worse than ever right around the time i noticed the spotting. huge cysts, painful, and they wont stop coming. please help...im about to just give up.

Patient ID: Sex: Age: Nature of work: Habits:
20, female, university student, under constant stress with everything in my life, major anxiety, obsessive over appearance.


Please answer the following questions in a descriptive manner after careful analysis and recollection of previous experiences and happenings.

1. Describe your main suffering?
-my main sufferings alternate from one thing to another at certain points in my life, but one thing that is constant is my suffering because of my acne. I have had to live with it since I was in elementary school, at times it has gotten better, but now its starting to leave scarring and I am getting huge cysts that are causing me to feel even uglier than usual. Other things, I am a hypochondriac, and at times it wears me down to no end. There are times where I will research something based on a symptom I am feeling and I will sit at my computer and bawl my eyes out because I am afraid I am going to die from a specific disease I have researched. Everything to do with my skin takes over my life, every decision I make somehow comes back to my skin and face.

2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body?
-acne, hirutism, very skinny (underweight), hormones very imbalanced, I have mitral valve prolapse and experience scary heart racing periods that last up to an hour where I cant breathe very well. Doctors say I have polycystic ovarian syndrome that causes me to not get my periods. Very oily skin.

3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings?
-like I said earlier, my acne takes over my entire life. Every decision I make it based around my skin…I wont go out if I have a couple of zits because im afraid people will think I am ugly. I wont go to any events if my skin is bad because im afraid of people who once thought I was pretty to say ew she has horrible acne she became ugly. If I am in rooms with bright lights, I will brush my hair in my face, and look down at the ground and not make eye contact with anyone, I will also just avoid talking with someone during this. I don’t go to the beach with my friends, everytime I eat I worry if it will make me break out. If I go out at night and ive been out all day with makeup on, I will have a shower and redo my makeup and cover up every spot and mark all over again. I spend time researching on the internet every acne cure and things to clear up scarring. Im starting to begin to hate everything about myself, and I never used to, I think I have a fat face because I have chubby cheeks when I smile, I think I have an ugly nose with a bump, and I hate my hair and my body, and I just wish I could change everything about myself and be the most perfect looking person in the world. My acne makes me cry all the time, when I look at myself in the mirror, I see ugly…some days are worse than others, and I will go to different mirrors all over the house to see if I look better in certain rooms. Nobody can touch my face, and if they do they will get a beating from me, not even my boyfriend can kiss my cheeks because im afraid of bacteria spreading. May I note that, nobody else notices I have bad skin (when I have makeup on)…so people think im insane.

4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst? Describe the sensation in your own words.
-I feel like all my insides have compressed, like everything is about to just burst inside me from hopelessness or being afraid (when it comes to my hypochondria)…I cry so hard that im sobbing and I feel like im going to throw up. After a crying spell, I feel refreshed and much better.

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?
-my skin was always bad. But the scarring started after a couple summers ago. I had gone through a very stressful year at school attempting to get into university, and I was sick very often. When it was all over, I had all my time for my boyfriend for the summer. One night I got afraid that he was going to leave me because he was acting strange to me, and I started to have a breakdown. After that, I had a horrible summer. I had extreme chest pressure that lasted all summer, squeezing pains, this was when my hypochondria started. I was afraid I had angina. I went through a whole bunch of testing on my lungs, heart, etc…something was very wrong. I felt depressed, I felt like I was going to die from a disease that nobody believed I had. Ever since I have not been the same. I started to get anxiety attacks after one night where I sobbed desperately about my boyfriend, and it was all based around jealousy.

6. Which time of the day you are worst?
-at night is when I am at my worst. I get anxiety attacks where I feel like nothing is real around me, like everything is far from me and I am all alone in my own world. I just have this surreal feeling that I cant explain and I feeling extremely scared.

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.
-night time, when its hot outside or when I feel hot it makes me feel gross and I become agitated, when I excervise I feel uncomfortable, when im sweaty I hate it…I feel better when ive just showered and when im out in the fresh air, in the open.

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)?
-I don’t get my periods so I cant really say, change of place causes me to get anxiety, when im somewhere that im not familiar or comfortable with I will get anxiety attacks.

9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?
-cold weather! Humidity is the WORST for me.

10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.
-very insecure, act cocky to overcompensate, very emotional and cry easily, feel betrayed easily, don’t trust anybody, think low of myself, very unsure with everything I do, love conflict and arguing with people, quite lazy just want to sit around and watch movies because its an escape from my own life, painfully shy around people at first, but loud and open if im comfortable around you, suspicious of my boyfriend all the time, hate people easily, always worried what people think, get stressed out, always in a rush.

- How do you feel before or during a thunderstorm?
-love thunderstorms, they make me happy.

- Do you like being consoled during your tough times?
-yes I do very much so, I want all the attention in the world from my boyfriend, but not from anybody else.

- Are you sensitive to external stimuli like smell, noise, light etc?
-yes I am for sure I wake up very easily from noise and light

- Do you have any typical habit or gesture like nail biting, causeless
Weeping, talking to one self etc?
-sometimes bite my nails, I clench my teeth at night and my jaw ia always sore in the morning, always bite my lip.

- How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your husband / wife?
-I don’t trust my boyfriend, I believe he doenst really think im super pretty, and I hate him easily when hes not paying attention to me, I feel betrayed easily by him. I love my family, I respect my mom so much that whatever her opinions are on anything, they automatically become my own, I don’t trust my friends, they irritate me easily, and for as long as I can remember ive been blocking out certain friends because they do something to bother me. I will cut them out of my life, and im always on and off with liking them. I am critical of others, and if they are very different from me I will dislike them.

11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly?
-I dream of meeting famous people that I like…im obsessed with the whole Hollywood thing, I obsess over certain girls who are pretty and I try to look like them. I dream of meeting them. I dream of having clear perfect skin, and what my life would be like with that. My fear is losing my boyfriend, being lonely, and im afraid of disease and death. Im afraid of my family dying as well.


12. What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions?
-I crave candy, bread and cheese

13. How is your thirst: Less, Normal or Excessive?
-usually I am not thirsty but I force myself ot drink water to try and clear my skin.

14. How is your hunger: Less, Normal or Excessive?
-excessive!!! Im always hungry, I don’t eat meals, I just eat throughout the day, I can eat so much at one time, and twenty minutes later I will feel hungry again.

17. How is your bowel movement and stool type?
-ive always had strange bowel movements. I go through periods of having diarrhea. Sometimes when I have a bowel movement iget this feeling in my chest after and in the bottom of my throat like something is constricting it or squeezing it tight.

18. How well do you sleep? Do you have a particular posture of sleeping?
-I sleep very badly, and this started that summer I explained earlier in this, when all my problems started. I go to bed late, and I wake up throughout the night. I fall asleep okay, my problem is just waking up constantly, and going to the bathroom.

19. Do you think you are able to satisfy your sexual desires in general?
-yes

20. Do you have any strange, peculiar or unusual symptom or feelings? How are you different from others?
-all my life ive grown up and had people say “you are so beautiful”, and to my mom “oh my god she should model she is so beautiful” blah blah blah…ive loved this attention, and I used to be confident. Now im not at all, I see ugly, I don’t believe people think this…but now with my skin and what not, im afraid that people will think im ugly, im afraid of letting people down who once said I was pretty, I don’t want them to change their minds. I want to be known that way. That’s all I want in life, is to be known as beautiful, if I had that, and clear skin, I would be happy. I see it strangely as the most important thing in the world (on myself) not in general though.

21. What medications have been taken earlier by you to treat the diseases and do you have any particular symptom surfacing after the medication?
-I have been seeing a naturopath, and he sometimes helps me but I have so many continual mental issues that its hard for him to find one remedy that will help all the issues. I don’t take anything else, im about to start birth control though. I take eccinicea it helps me prevent getting sick.

22. What major diseases are running in your family?
-my grandmothers have diabetes, my mother has thyroid problems (the autoimmune disease)…same with my grandfather.

23. Describe, how do you look like? Describe your overall appearance.
(For Females)
-im very tall and slender, im underweight..i have excess hair in some areas but nobody would notice if you were to look at me…I have darker features, bad acne, my arms are very long and lanky, the length of my arms spread out are longer than my body. No matter how much I eight I wont gain weight and I eat A LOT. I used to be an athlete but I stopped. I have small breast size, as my hormones suck and I seem to be extremely out of whack.


24. If your menstrual cycles are not normal, please describe the irregularities, like pains, moods, flow type, clots etc.
-I haven’t had a real period for as long as I can remember..infact I think the only time I ever got a normal period was only when I was on birth control. While off of it, I just get random spotting at times, and its dark in colour, very dark red, and I don’t need to use anything because its that light, so light that I wouldn’t even call it a period. Before I get the spotting I feel nauseas and get breakouts worse than I already have. My mood is very crazy, I will go from being super happy to being angry and sad..my boyfriend says ihave bipolar.

you seem to be a typical pulsatilla girl.

i am sure you will get well soon.

take PULSATILLA 200C one dose every morning in empty stomach.

dont take any food or water for the next one hour.

one dose would typically consist of 4 to 5 pillules or 3 to 4 drops in some 20 ml of water.

once you start noticing improvement in your sleep and mentals, you can continue it in infrequent intervals, say once in two to three days.

if you see that the improvement has come to a plateau, you should stop 200c and go for 1m potency once in a week.

come back after 15 days to report the improvements.

in the meantime, if you notice any new symptoms coming up, you can report ASAP and discontinue the remedy.

best wishes.
