Sinus Infection/Pain-thought I had it

Thought I had it cured, 2 days ago was a fabulous pain free day...it's BACK!

Came on after a cold. Has happened for 6 yrs when I get a cold now. Using tonnes of things from vit c, oregano oil, grapefruit seed extract, neti pot.

have tried kali bi 30c and yesterday and today kali sulph 30c.

Current status:

-worse at night
-worse from eating
- worse lying down
-worse from bending over
- worse in warm room/indoors
-discharge when I blow was yellow, then white, now yellow again, mostly from left side.
-mucous slides down back of my throat alot
-nose drippy when I bend over-clear
-nose and cavities burning
- not stuffed up, I can breath freely
- frontal stuffy feeling headache
-brain fog/thick feeling
- normal thirst for water-room temp
-crave hot herbal teas
- Mostly left side- cavities under eyes, pressure, and cheekbones and teeth ACHE beyond belief - like someone is trying to extract them without freezing. It is unbearable.
If I massage, it does drain some but the pain also moves around.
-I'm frustrated and angry- I've got 2 homeschooled kids and a 1 yr old breastfeeding little guy that I have to look after and I am very exhausted. We've been sick off and on for weeks and I don't understand why. We eat no junk, all homemade and mostly organic etc. Normally I have much success with dealing with our ailments til now.

I was up til 4am last night and now trying to find a better remedy today but I don't want to cloud it up too much if this continues on and presents a different picture.

Please help!

kawdwa: I have taken 3 doses of arsenicum 30c. Is it possible that is enough or too much?

** not sure if this is important but my 2 children and I have very high arsenic levels in our hair analysis- we don't know where it is coming from.

Ok, Although I am feeling improvement (my teeth no longer ache...still slightly in my left jaw) but I just googled arsenicum materia medica and was startled by alot of the things I am experiencing:

- burning nostrils
- left lung now is burning way down once in awhile, I can breath deeper (has happened a few times in the past)
- I feel so incredibly limp and exhausted, I don't even want to get up - what is going on??? ugggh (but have to with 3 children) Then I want to sit down.
- I try to sleep during day but can't, every little noise wakes me
- my head feels thick and jumbled, headache at back like band, alternates with temples pressing together, mixing my childrens names up, saying one thing when I mean another ie. 4500 rather then 45. etc. etc.
- I feel like I can't think I am so jumbled.
- I am very angry to be feeling like this
- my head is 'buzzing', and when laying down quietly feels like my ears are ringing or rushing.
- I am typically a cold person who wears socks all the time, but am experiencing sweats during day today
- felt AWESOME yesterday afternoon when we took the kids tobogganing in the cold fresh air for 3 hours!!
- awoke with burning eyes, feeling heavy headed, angry, drowsy and like I had hardly slept (this happens alot maybe dust mites? - plus I am still breastfeeding during the night)
- dizzy when I got up
- seems like everything I eat (even healthy) makes my head hurt!! I am afraid to eat.
-crave fresh air but don't feel like I have the energy to get out there.
- I have no appetite and when I do I just want comfort food from my past like a chocolate bar or caffeine (which I never have now)
- today after 1st morning dose I noticed tingling/numbness in my left leg below knee when I had my foot up on a chair, VERY pins and needly and down into my foot.. later same leg, same spot is aching alot.

I have been VERY sensitive to remedies in the past.

Anyhow, wasn't sure if I should continue with 2 more doses?

thanks

Hi Wendy !!

Only that much doses of a homeo remedy should be taken which are sufficient to stimulate vital force. Your vital force responds quickly so you needn't take more doses like 6 doses etc. But let me tell you that even if someone takes more doses nothing serious happens. There may be a homeopathic aggravation for a while and then it passes away on it's own.
i have read your posts on nutrition and diet. You also manage a yahoo group for pregnant ladies. i would like to know your opinion about the tissue salts and the breathing exercises.

** not sure if this is important but my 2 children and I have very high arsenic levels in our hair analysis- we don't know where it is coming from.
Ars Alb 200as a remedy doesn't contain a single molecule of Arsenic. It was suggested on the basis of your reported symptoms. You may take tissue salts as advised and see whether you find more improvement after taking that.

Thanks !!

kadwa: thanks for this...

The aresenicum point was more for interest as I have read people with arsenic poisoning can be helped sometimes with arsenic...after reading the materia medica, it would appear that my children's behaviour would suit much of the symptom picture as well, when 'not sick'....interesting.

I have to say the tissue salts I have used off and on over the years, but I have never gotten a good 'feel' or knowledge base for them...I wish I knew them more. Mainly I think because I believe that to some extent the lactose in them bothers my kids. However that being said ones like mag phos work great on a sore tummy! LOL

I'm not sure if you were referring to breathing excercises during pregnancy or anytime. I think that breathing excercises would be useful for increasing oxygen, although I've done no research on this. I did however use ozone therapy with all 3 of my pregnancies and drank ozonated water (but that would be someone each would have to research on their own) Unfortunately my ozone machine broke and it's been a year and it has not been returned yet due to complications on their end. I still hold hope ;-) I did do some yoga and pilates throughout some of my pregnancies, however, more children, more animals to care for, more things like wheatgrass and dehydrating means less time for me LOL So you just do what you can with what you have. I did also do some rebounding to flush lymphatics etc. with my 3rd but there is some controversy about that so I tried to walk instead.

I do have those tissue salts and will start today.
Thanks again, will post back. ;-)

Hi !!

i am talking about the following breathing exercises. Please do these exercises whenever you find time and let me know your feedback!!
