Question about Chelidonium MajusMonths ago I bought a bottle of Chelidonium Majus after reading in a booklet that it was for 'fainting after lifting'. Now I am unable to find any reference to it either on this site, on the internet or through a homeopath.
Can someone please tell me if Chel is ever used for this condition?

I looked it up in materia medicas and rubrics and couldn't find any reference either.
Is that lifting as to lift a weight or you mean standing up, raising from bed, etc?
raphaeloliveira last decadeFaintness after bending over and lifting a weight, i.e. removing something heavy from the trunk of my car and placing it in the trunk of car next to me. It came on suddenly.
luckyme last decadeI couldn't find anything more specific like fainting directly associated to lifting but here's a list of remedies which symptoms may aggravate by lifting:
Calc; Carb-an; Carb-v; Graph; Lyc; Rhus-t; Arn; Bor; Bry; Con; Kali-c; Merc; Nat-c; Nat-m; Ph-ac; Phos; Sep; Sil; Sulph
raphaeloliveira last decadeIf there is pain in your right shoulder and the other symptoms appear along with that, then Chel is a good medicine.
If your left shoulder has the pain, then Kali Carb is more appropriate with those sympotms.
The symptoms you are mentioning are covered under extreme general lethargy.
♥ PANKAJ VARMA last decadeThank you for your replies. There is no pain associated with it although there is strain since the objects I lifted were heavy.
I'll make a note of the other remedies sugggested.
Extreme general lethary doesn't seem to fit since I was actively involved in things I liked on two occasions.
