For Dr. Kadwa : Post nasal drip and cough problem.

Several months ago for similar problems you advised me to take 2 pellets of
ferrum phos 6x
kali mur 6x
natrum sulph 6x
thrice a day.
I'm 21 weeks pregnant now and have similar problems, but I also have a cough and phlegm, which comes up only if I cough hard. I can't sleep at night because my throat tickles and I feel the need to cough. It's very exhausting and by the end of the day I sometimes feel out of breath.
The expectoration I coughed up was clear with yellow pieces. Nasal discharge was clear, but sticky and difficult to clear nose. I took the above remedies, because the problem was similar to last time. They helped as far as the nasal discharge goes, by clearing a great deal up and the phlegm is no longer yellow, but still persists. When I breath out strongly I hear the phlegm in my chest and sometimes a wheezing sound is heard. It feels like it's stuck there.
I have no fever, slight improvement from remedies the first day, but the problem still persists. I took the pellets as advised for 4 days.
Do I have to change the remedy? I would greatly appreciate your advice.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take the following tissue salts 2 pellets thrice a day and see whether it helps.

ferrum phos 6x
kali mur 6x
natrum mur 6x

So natrum sulph has been replaced with natrum mur.

You are a pulsatilla lady but there has been a very confusing debate on whether puls can be taken during pregnancy.

For how many days?
Do you think kali bich would help clear the mucous from the chest more effectively? I have taken it in the past, but do not recall the exact reason.
Last night I slept well. No coughing or tickling in throat. Phlegm in chest still persists, but isn't as loose in the morning.
Thank you for your help!

I forgot to mention that last night, before bed, my cough was so intense, in an attempt to get rid of the phlegm, that at some point it was a little bloody ( a pinkish shade). It seems normal again today.
 
rania1403 last decade
Kali Bichromicum will work if there is stuffing up of mucous or there is very abundant and continous nasal discharge. But your respiratory symptoms are there in kali bicb.
You may take three doses of Kali Bichromicum 30c at a gap of 4 hours for only one day and see how that affects in the next 10 days.
Please don't take any tissue salts on the day you take kali bich.
 
kadwa last decade
You may also consider taking Phos in the same way as Kali Bich.
 
kadwa last decade
Thanks! Do I continue to take the salts after kali bich, or should I wait to see if it works?
30c is the same as 30ch?
 
rania1403 last decade
One more question: Can I take the kali bich today? Or do I have to wait since salts were taken yesterday evening?
 
rania1403 last decade
30c is the same as 30ch?
**Yes.

One more question: Can I take the kali bich today? Or do I have to wait since salts were taken yesterday evening?
**You can take kali bich today.

Do I continue to take the salts after kali bich, or should I wait to see if it works?
**With tissue salts one can be liberal.

Dr. Kadwa, I took the kali bich as suggestad yesterday.
The nasal discharge from clear has turned yellow and is harder to get rid of. My nose is very blocked, no smell, little taste. My ears are also blocked and glands swelled up yesterday but today are much better. Phlegm and chest have shown an improvement. I feel that it isn't as low in the chest as it was.
I'm assuming that if it's the right remedy, I should see an improvement in the next few days, right?
 
rania1403 last decade
Yes. You should.
 
kadwa last decade
My siniuses are blocked and in pain from last night. Especially the right side. The pain is so strong that I have a bad headache, even during the night. I can't bend over, shake my head vigorously,blow my nose or cough, without it hurting. My ear on that side also hurts a little.
Nasal discharge is sometimes clear, sometimes yellowish and nose is blocked on that side.
Chest is a lot better and cough mainly comes on due to tickling feeling and not because of phlegm.
What do you advise?
Should I take the salts replacing natrum sulph with natrum mur? The sinus pain is awful!
 
rania1403 last decade
Should I take the salts replacing natrum sulph with natrum mur?
**Yes you should replace. i think that you should continue with tissue salts for 2 days and then you may repeat kali bich if necessary.
 
kadwa last decade
Repeat it like last time 30ch trice one day?
 
rania1403 last decade
Yes.
 
kadwa last decade
Dr, unfortunately no improvement. The pain in my head is sometimes unbelievable! Coughing makes me think it will fall off, it's so unbearable and tears start to flow. Still only on the right. Ear isn't as blocked.
I have been using a neti pot, but wonder if this only aggravates the syptoms. Luckily I sleep pretty ok during the night. If I was able to cough strongly I would've been able to get rid of the phlegm that is left, which makes me cough only sometimes.
When I blow nose discharge is sometimes greenish now and sometimes clear. Still difficult to get rid of.
I was wondering if I should take the salts today or try the kali bich again, for greater relief.
Thank you for your help!
 
rania1403 last decade
Please take kali bich 30c thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours for 2 days

I got a hold of my dr that treated me in the past ( sent him a message, that is) and he said to take pulsatilla 200ch. After all we've discussed I'm scared to take it during pregnancy. Do you think I should stick with kali bich, but take 200ch. His recommended dose was 200ch for 2 days morning-night.
What do you think? I really appreciate your opinion. Symptoms are still persisting- no improvement yet.
 
rania1403 last decade
Yes. Kali Bich 200, 4 doses over 2 days is fine.
 
kadwa last decade
I took the 4th dose of kali bich 200c. Finally I have seen some improvement. face still in pain when I touch it, all the sinus cavities especially above the eyes and nose. Slight headache, but nothing compared to the previous days. Nose blocked and discharge still yellowish-greenish. Yesterday it was mucousy. When I blow nose right ear pops. Right side still worse than left. Very blocked during the night. I wake up many times to drink some water because my mouth dries up so much.
What do you suggest I do now?
 
rania1403 last decade
i have asked Maheeru to give his opinion on whether Puls can be taken safely during pregnancy. His opinion is awaited.
Now having taken Kali Bich 200 you should allow it to act internally. So don't take anything for the time being.
 
kadwa last decade
Thank you! I'm awaiting his opinion.
 
rania1403 last decade
Any reply? As the day goes by I feel worse. So much congestion and yellow discharge. I don't know what to do to relieve the pain.
 
rania1403 last decade
Please read Maheeru's opinion given below. In homeopathy substituting one remedy for another doesn't work. i think you need pulsatilla and kali bich can't work as your remedy. So you may go ahead with your homeopath's suggestion. Puls 200 4 doses over 2 days.

Hi Maheeru !!

How are you ?

i felt fine as i remembered you. Please tell me whether Pulsatilla can be taken safely during pregnancy. There is one pulsatilla lady, she is trying all different remedies as someone told her that puls should not be taken during pregnancy.

i hope you won't mind me for disturbing flow of your thread.

Thanks and Regards.

Hi Kadwa :)

Good to see your post here.

Pulsatilla in homeopathic potencies can be given to pregnant mothers. The caution is for herbal tinctures which are actually crude medicinal substances. Since it has such disruptive ability as a crude material during pregnancy it's a very good medicine during pregnancy in potentized form. So if the subject is pulsatilla constitution or if the symptoms indicate pulsatilla, it's a good remedy to use during pregnancy. If we check out repertories we will find that many GENERALITIES rubrics pertaining to pregnancy have pulsatilla with good grades. Pulsatilla is a very useful remedy during pregnancies and except for very sensitive subjects it's safe.
 
kadwa last decade
Thank you so much. I want to believe that everything I've taken so far has been totally safe for the baby. In the back of my mind I always have that concern.
I hope pulsatilla does the job!
 
rania1403 last decade
I took the last dose of pulsatilla today. From the first dose I saw improvement, but still not totally well.
Still a lot of yellow nasal discharge, especially from right side. Ear on that side occasionally blocked. Sense of taste has returned, but smell not that strong.
I start the day off feeling ok, but as it progresses sinuses start to hurt. Headache is still pretty strong and annoying at times.
What do you suggest I do? Do you think one last dose of pulsatilla would help? Should I start taking the salts again?
