Help me find constitutional type?


I am struggling to find my homeopathic type, can anyone help me to pin it down?

I first came to homeopathy to treat recurring glandular fever which was causing me chronic fatigue.

I've tried Carcinosin, but had to stop after increasing the dosage and suffering aggravation.

I've then tried sulphur, but as much as I am quite fiery, I don't think I fit this type.

I would really appreciate help in finding my constitutional remedy.

A little bit of info:
27years old
I have quite dark olive skin. It was always very good skin, but in the last 6-8 months it's quality has deteriorated and I have had acne for the first time (this is beginning to clear)
Hazel eyes which are a bit ambery.
Long brown hair - there is a lot of it, but it is fine, dry and gets matted
I am slim, but have a big frame and hips, and quite chunky strong legs. I work hard to stay in shape.

Health wise, as a child I had continual problems with tonsillitis and eventually had these removed at about 11 yrs. Other than this, I don't remember many other problems. As a teenager I was always in quite good health. Problems with eating disorders between ages of 17-early 20s. Now largely past. History of cysts and abscesses. Lots of dental problems (root canals and infections) despite decent hygiene. Generally in very robust health until around one year ago, when I began to feel fatigued, suffer spots and cuts inside nose and mouth, fevers etc (other tings related to glandular fever). This is gradually improving, although it has taken some time and I seem to relapse.

Emotionally, I am quite affected by other people's suffering. I think I am quite kind, and I don't want to do anyone harm. I lack self confidence and can be self effacing. However, I am confident in social situations and in front of crowds - just very uncomfortable talking about myself. I will often volunteer what would appear to be very personal information, so people get the impression that I am open and frank - but really I don't tell them anything deep. People might describe me as loud, quite funny and jolly. I am these things, but I also get very sad and feel quite lonely and like I don't fit.

I am quite secretive and have some secrets I have never shared. I am nosy. I start lots of things but never finish them. I can be very impulsive and without realising it, do silly things (one night stands in the past).

I am untidy. I let the house get messy and then have a big burst of cleaning to sort it out.

I used to smoke a lot and drink quite a bit, but with age, I have outgrown this.

Academically I have done very well, although I can be a bit lazy if something doesn't interest me. I have a decent job and do okay at it.

I have a good memory and am good at languages and enjoy talking.

Always a bit disappointed in myself as I think I don't apply myself enough to things so I have never worked to the best of my ability.

I am very warm, but always have cold hands and feet.

I have a fear of mice and cockroaches and scurrying things in general!

I have quite a big appetite and generally like all food. I am naturally a healthy eater and love fruits 9 in particular sour mangoes and green guava) and vegetable - cucumber and anything watery I like a lot. I don't drink much and have to remind myself to drink water, though I do love tea, and drink quite a lot of this. I really dislike gristle on meat. I like spicy food very much too. I will eat, but don't really like creamy food that much, like cream sauces or risottos.

Is this enough detail for you to help?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I would really be grateful if somebody could help with this. I have been visiting a homeopath for over 6 months now but still do not know my constitutional remedy.

Most recently I took phosphorus 30 and had a very bad reaction with all of symptoms (fatigue, bad stomach and skin) getting worse.

I think the remedies I have taken have not had a deep or long lasting enough effect and that I really need to get a constitutional remedy.

Please help!

1)Do you feel worse on consolation or consolation gives u relief...
and u agree to someone who does so.
hisam last decade
Hi Hisam,

Thanks for your reply.

I don't feel relieved by consolation. When I am upset or angry or something is wrong, I am usually inconsolable and caught between wanting to be consoled but rejecting it, maybe because I feel that the consolement isn't genuine or that I'm not deserving of it.

how about you childhood experiences otherwise...relations etc till puberty.
hisam last decade
Hi Hisan,

Thanks again for your reply

I think my childhood was fairly normal and untroubled. Certainly no 'relations' other than friends and family before puberty!

A good relationship with my family, although even as a child I wouldn't want to tell my parents if I was upset. I think I had a 'healthy' fear of my parents in that they gave myself and my brother a sense of discipline, but were always fair. I think I was more of a daddy's girl and very much wanted his attention when I was little

I had a best friend who wasn't always very nice to me, but who I always forgave even after she was nasty. When she would decide not to be my friend I would feel quite lonely but would find a way to play by myself and get on with it.

I think I was quite kind as a child and I never liked being naughty (if other friends wanted to be mischevious I was the boring one who didn't want to!). Because of this, when I was in trouble I would be very upset as I never meant to do anything wrong. I think I also preferred company of adults to children sometimes.

Does this help?

your apetite, glands and hurried nature and body warmth points to Iodum. do study it.

Any other
issue/physical/emotional truama that you experienced before ur suffering.?
hisam last decade
Thanks Hisan I greatly appreciate the advice.

I will look in to iodum.

In realtion to your question,
I was under considerable stress at work and at home before the problems began. I was moving house and starting a new job for which I had to undergo a very intrusive screening process which looked at all aspects of my life. I was also having some relationship troubles with my partner and my father. For the first time in my life I had trouble sleeping and felt great anxiety.

I do think this contributed, however it is all past now, yet I haven't fully recovered physically!
