Please Help ... At the End of my rope with major health Problems


Please help me. Is there anyway to stop the suffering I've had for the last 5 years. I've tried every type of medicine out there from western, natural, chinese medicine but nothing has worked. This is probably my last resort for a normal life.

Sex: Male Age: 33

Please answer the following questions in a descriptive manner after

careful analysis and recollection of previous experiences and happenings.

1. Describe your main suffering?

major stomach problems. Even after eating a large meal, it would only be 3 hours or so that I become famished again (ie: rumbling stomach, mild burning sensation on the left side of the body about an
inch below the ribcage, weakness in the whole body, dizziness, feeling faint)

2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body?

A rapid heart rate of 110 bpm on average while sitting down, 120 while standing up and around 100 while laying down. Before getting sick my
average heart rate while standing was 85 bpm.

My Arms and Legs seem to fall asleep (get the pins and needles feeling) very quickly. If I crouch down or rest my head on my hand while laying down for 3-4 minutes I will get the pins and needles feeling.

Pressure behind the eyes.

Stomach gas and Bloating.

Also suffering from a skin disease call Lichen Simplex Chronicus.

3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your

physical sufferings?

I am afraid to leave the house. If I have to leave the house to go to the doctors or something very important I have to take lots of food with me otherwise I will get very Nervous and end up having a panic attack.
When I am stuck at a traffic light or the checkout line at the grocery store and the bank for more than 5 minutes I get really nervous
and sometimes get panick attacks.
When I feel hungrier than usual I usually end up getting very nervous or close to having a panic attack.

4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst?

When I am at my worst, my heart is POUNDING at 150+ bpm, I feel faint, totally no strength to even stand up, the pressure behind my eyes seems like its going to make my eyes pop out. My head is pounding. My stomach feels like its on fire, and also shortness of breath.

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?

It started around 5 years ago, it took about 4 months and about 10 different doctors to figure out that I had a Helicobacter Pylori Infection. Even after 4 rounds of Antibiotics to finally get rid of the infection I still felt really bad everyday.
2 years ago I discovered that I was allergic/super-sensitive to
Wheat/Gluten. Ever since I stopped eating wheat the symptoms are a little bit better.

6. Which time of the day you are worst?

I feel the worst right when I wake-up and for the first few hours in the morning.

7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same?

Feeling nervous and stressful aggravates my suffering and eating makes it better.

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'm not sure.

9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?

I feel better during cool and dry weather. When It's hot and humid the symptoms come on faster.

10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild,

Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.

I am generally quiet, and easy-going, but get nervous really easily.

- How do you feel before or during a thunderstorm?

I get nervous that there will be a power outage which will make it hard for me to make something to eat

- Do you like being consoled during your tough times?

I would probably have to say Yes.

- Are you sensitive to external stimuli like smell, noise, light etc?

Loud noises for a long duration of time will make me tense and agitated, while strong smells such as perfume, air fresheners will tend to give me a headache.

- Do you have any typical habit or gesture like nail biting, causeless weeping, talking to one self etc?


- How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your husband / wife?

Same as before the disease. Normal.

11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly?

Fear of not having anything to eat, of fainting in public place, and of heights.

Constantly dreaming of being instead a mall trying to find a particular store but always getting lost, and seems like the place is never ending.

Also at the end of all my dreams, whether I was walking or running, I end up getting so tired that can barely move anymore, then I wake up with
my heart pounding heavily.

12. What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions?

Cravings for meat, and of course aversion to wheat products.

13. How is your thirst: Less, Normal or Excessive?


14. How if your hunger: Less, Normal or Excessive?


15. Is there any kind of food which your body can’t stand?

Foods which contain wheat/gluten.

16. Is your sweat normal or less or more? Where does it sweat more: Head, Trunk or Limbs?

Sweating more on Trunk.

17. How is your bowel movement and stool type?

1 to 2 times daily, but stool is loose and has pale yellowish colour.

18. How well do you sleep? Do you have a particular posture of sleeping?

Am only able to sleep 4-5 hours at a time then I get waken by burning sensation in my stomach. I usually fall asleep in the foetal position
but end up sleeping on my back.

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


20. What peculiar or strange sensation do you have in any part of your body at times? Do you sometimes feel ‘ as if…..’ in some part of the body?

Nothing strange.

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'm on anti-depressants for the anxiety and panic attacks.
Took over-the-counter antacids and prescription Proton pump inhibitors like Nexium for my stomach problems, but those didn't help.
Taking Probiotics.
Took many prescriptions of chinese medicine with no help.

Took Lycopodium Clavatum 12X, but that made everything worse.

22. What major diseases are running in your family?

Diabetes and High Blood Pressure.

23. Describe, how do you look like? Describe your overall appearance.

5'8' and 200 lbs, Muscular Stalky build with a huge belly (from gas).

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
please take AGARICUS 30C four doses on a single day only at 4 hour gap.

if you feel a change in the next few days, you may come back here for follow up doses.
rishimba last decade

but which agaricus should I get:

Agaricus Emeticus
Agaricus Phalloides
Agaricus Muscarius

yoyo168abc last decade
you may try for arsenicum album 30c 4hrly for few days.Then 1dose of psorinum200.
Zahid)2 last decade
agaricus muscarius.

i suggested this as you described the particular sensation of pricking needles which is a typical of agaricus.

it covers many of your symptoms.
rishimba last decade
actually, I'm more worried about the excessive hunger pains that I get every 3-4 hours than the tingling feeling in my hands and feet since those only come about once a week or so.

Another thing is that I get tired/exhausted really fast and exerting a little bit of energy will put me out for the rest of the day. e.g. mowing the lawn for 10 minutes or shoveling the driveway or carrying a few cases of water from the car to the basement or sweeping the floor of my room or lifting something really heavy just for a few seconds will leave my bed ridden for the rest of the day.

it seems like arsenicum album recommended by Zahid)2 fits better for the exhaustion and hunger.

yoyo168abc last decade
Agaricus has the PQRS symptom of 'hunger after 3 or 4 hours'

you can check out the MM of agaricus.

additionally, the needle sensation is also another PQRS in AGARICUS.

ars alb is a general fit no doubt but the similimmum is closer to agaricus.
rishimba last decade
didn't see the hunger part before, now I do after looking at it closely.

yoyo168abc last decade


I just received my Agaricus today and have taken the four doses like you said. I'll report my changes in the next few days

yoyo168abc last decade

it's been a few days since I've taken the pills and it seems as though I've got a bit more energy now, but my hunger is still there. Also, a new symptom has risen, I intermittently get these sharp pains on both sides of my navel that lasts for about 10 seconds throughout the day. Everything else seems to be the same. Will update in a couple of days.
