The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Anyone with a suggestion would be appreciated

Hi all, I have been seeing a homeopath but feel it's not going anywhere. He has been giving me alm nat mur.

I have done a lot of reading and it would seem arsenicum album would be appropriate. I however am not miserly, at all. I am the proverbial doormat and generally people sense it and I get taken advantage of a lot. I do fear poverty very very much though.

I have many health problems. I am 31 years old, female. They started when I was small. AT three I began to have chronic UTI's which I still have. AT 9 I had my first basilar migraine including vertigo. They happen infrequently when I am emotionally stressed. I had one recently that blinded me temporarily, and have had a hard time with speech and writing since then. I have a burning/pressure sensation headache in the front of my head every single day. It is excruciating. I have many allergies to food and inhalents. (wheat and dairy the worst) I have uterine fibroids which are I have been told abnormally sized for my age. I also experience synacope under stress. I am the most sensitive person I know, I cry very easily; with a childhood histroy of sexual abuse, beatings and mental abuse until I left home at 15. I have no friends, and feel very alone and sad a lot of the time but I have a will too strong to kill myself. I fantasize about it, but never would. I am commited to seeing this life through. I have been told my whole life I am very beautiful but do not see it and am afraid of people looking at me. Nothing makes my headache better, except the medication I have been on for 10 years which is a combo pill of apap/barbituate/caffiene. I cannot lay down during the day no matter how sick I am as it makes my headache worse.

My other main complaint is that I sweat profusly during the day. It impedes my life. It goes away completely by 5 pm.

AM I just really strange? I feel I will live like this the rest of my life and I do not want to.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
There is a bit more info that would be good before perscribing for this case.

Please use the new homeopathy patient intake form and give us information about your case, and hopefully someone will help you begin correct homeoapthic treatment.


At first glance, Ars. Album could be very appropriate in your case.

1. main suffering-headaches, nausea (both constant) and sweating until 5pm everyday from only my armpits

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

Urinary tract infections, uterine fibroids with heavy bleeding and cramping

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

Anxiety, fear, suffering deep in my heart.

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

Like I feel and represent the suffering of humanity as a whole. I have sensed the suffering of the world since I was very young..too young. Three or so (I was being molested so..?) Like no one will ever be able to love me because I am too broken.

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

When I was two or three. My childhood was pretty bad.

6. Which time of the day you are worst?

Sweating- till evening. Headaches, worst in afternoon, 3-5pm

7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same? Example- time, temperature, pressure, rubbing, washing, eating, tight clothing etc.

I am cold all the time. Hands and feet the worst. I am cold when I sweat. Being warm helps me, but I like ice cold drinks. I love to curl up by the fire while sipping a cold drink. I cannot have anything on my armpits- it is very uncomfortable for me.

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)?

Sweating comes from fear a fear that feels like being a tapped animal. The headache- it's just always there but gets worse if I have to socially interact or have a complex conversation or study hard. Mental overexertion but like I said I am so sensitive what other people do everyday is overexertion to me.

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

10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.

Nervous, sensitive, sad, but also very intuitive and giving. Creative. I see the beauty that others are too busy to notice.

- How do you feel before or during a thunderstorm?

I like it. Does make my headache worse though.

- Do you like being consoled during your tough times?

Only when someone just sits with me. I do not like it when people try too hard. I need someone who can sit with my sadness. Apparently it's not easy for most. My anguish is deep.

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

Very sensitive to all of it. I can't go to a movie theater. It's too much.

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

I do cry a lot. I smoke cigarettes to repress my grief.

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

My family- I hardly have one. All I have is my son and I would cross any ocean for him. He is the only thing that helps me push aside my sadness.

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

My recurrent dream is being alone in a desert. I am walking, walking. I never get anywhere but i never lay down or quit either.

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

I crave chocolate and salt and vinegar chips. I do not like simple carbs- bread and potatoes literally make me sick.

13. How is your thirst: Less, Normal or Excessive? I have none until it's uncontrolable. I get up at night to drink lots of ice cold beverages.

14. How is your hunger: Less, Normal or Excessive? I am always sick to my stomach and can't eat until starving usually about 5pm.

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

Dairy and wheat. Cashews.

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

I sweat a lot. Only from my armpits.

17. How is your bowel movement and stool type?

Normal. That is one thing that is ok. It is not putrid, it is regular. It was putrid and loose before I stopped eating dairy and wheat.

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

I sleep for 7 hours. I can only go to sleep on my stomach.

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

No. I don't have much of that anymore. I lost my sons father, he left me after my dad killed himself. I have not loved since then. That was 5 years ago.

20. Do you have any strange, peculiar or unusual symptom or feelings? How are you different from others?

I feel like a freak in just about every way I can think of and have since I was very little.

21. What medications have been taken earlier by you to treat the diseases and do you have any particular symptom surfacing after the medication?

Bubalbitol for migraine. No symptoms surface. I just feel like I can go on with my day.

22. What major diseases are running in your family?

Alzheimers, stroke.

23. Describe, how do you look like? Describe your overall appearance.
(For Females)

I am 5 feet tall 102-110 lbs.
I have dark auburn hair, very red fair skin and freckles.I have dark amber colored eyes. I have been told I am 'pretty'. Does not matter to me what people see.

24. If your menstrual cycles are not normal, please describe the irregularities, like pains, moods, flow type, clots etc.

Never have clots. Always bright red blood, gushes randomly. I am extra weepy. I have very bad cramps for the first couple days.

25. What major diseases have you had in your life and when. Please write them in a chronological manner.

Beginning at three, constant UTI's

At 7, got bronchitis and developed asthma which I 'grew out of'

AT 9, first migraine with vertigo and loss of speech and feeling in my mouth and hands.

Seriously depressed from age 12- 21ish. Laid in bed and wept for years, feeling unable to 'do' anything. Very much strife and struggle. Cut ties to my family who would not believe my dad molested me.

AT 27, developed allergy to wheat and dairy, first bout with eczema which is gone now that I stopped eating that stuff.

At 28, first random synacope.

Daily migraines since I was 18.

Homeopathy is going to dissolve and resolve these symptoms for you, so you can go on with a happy life, enjoying life.


I gave your case a very quick look and Ars. could be right for you. Will someone else please give this case a good study? I'm swamped with current cases and can't take on the management of another case.

Thank you to all who've looked it over. I have one more thing to add- my skin is a constant source of acne, random hives and irritation. It is very red, oily and dry at the same time. It is also very thin, which makes me kinda laugh when I hear the term 'thin skinned'. I am sensitive and my skin is just as much.

Hello girlwithwings

why do you think nat. mur is not going anywhere? what are the potencies you have taken till now? What's been the result?

How do you feel with important events, any preparation or even presentations?

what are the homepathic remedies you have taken in the past? what was the reaction to them?

what medicines did you take for asthma, bronchitis, eczema?
maheeru last decade
Well he gave me alm nat mur becuase he told me that at the core of my emotional issues (and he thought my body issues) was a feeling of unworthiness (like I feel that I will never be ok, and I expect/accept that) And it was mainly my headaches I complained of. The sweating I guess I did not bring up because it's embarrassing. I have been taking this remedy for 6 months and nothing has changed- my horrible periods, my headaches, sweating, sadness. All have remained the same...
girlwithwings last decade
sorry I did not finish post above. He gave me the second highest potency the first time which made me feel like I was on some type of drugs...at first for several hours. Then he gave me another dose at that potency, and it was less so. In between, I guess I did feel it had an effect on me mentally and did remember some parts of my life I had forgotten about.

The only other remedy I have taken was kali phos when I was going through mental breakdown after my dad died and husband left me, it helped soften the blow a little bit I guess.

I have a lot of anxiety around any event. I am mostly just nervous a lot.
Have been diagnosed as a long term PTSD sufferer (C-PTSD) and when my husband left me 5 years ago I really went through that hell. Basically I did not have PTSD when I was living through the hell. I was too young and my mind shut out so much so I could survive. The blow came when I experienced something similar as an adult after having my own child. Then I remembered or began remembering my past and have been slowly since then. I live in a world of ghosts. Of course I am a nervous wreck.

For the asthma as a child and bronchitis I was given abuterol and antibiotics. I have been on hundreds of courses of antibiotics though because of the UTIs since I was a toddler -maybe from being molested I have wondered but no one suspected anything then. I still get them and still take antibiotics because my body really can't get rid of them on it's own now if it ever could...

I never took anything or put anything on the eczema other than aloe..

Hi girlwithwings

My opinion is inclined towards a remedy called Sepia.

If you're fine with this suggestion, you may get it in 30c and take 2 pills or drops three times on a single day.

Then wait and observe changes for a fortnight and repor thereafter.


1) Do not take anything solid or liquid for half an hour before and after the dose.

2) Try to avoid taking coffee, tea, alcohol on the day of medicine and a week following the medicine.

3) Try to avoid the exposure to mint based substances, camphor based substances and also strong smelling substances including incense and strong perfumes.

4) Stop with the dose that produces marked or significant improvement or aggravation and report appropriately.

5) Do not handle the pills(if drops use a disposable exclusive dropper) with hand. Tip the pills using the cap.

6) Do not take any other homeopathic medicine during this duration until further updates and avoid all OTC medicines and supplementation except the medicines prescribed by your physician and emergency medicines.

I agree with maheeru that you should use Sepia.

Sorry to hear about your long lasting strugle with the illness and all the pain that you have gone, just logged in to keep track of it as I might put forward some suggestions on medicine once you are done with the current. Let me know if things dont work out well.

Have faith (i know it's hard) and follow the basic rules (I am sure you do)while taking homeopathy medicines.
