Menopause, hormones

Dear Doctors
I am looking for help from all Doctors I need fresh eyes on my symptoms.
I am a 50 year old female, thin built, stylish, pale, homemaker that is outgoing and talkative, but insecure, nervous, and reserved. I am going through Menopause for over a year now. The symptoms were gone in October and slowly returned got worse every month and now I feel extremely bad with menopausal symptoms again. I tried acupuncture and homeopathy about 10 years my first remedy ever was Natrum muriaticum 1 M my last remedy Natrum sulphuricum C12. Nothing seems to help.
• Sweet food, wine, beer, cheese, coffee, bread and starchy foods, butter
• Poverty, ill health, death, being late, burglars
• Criticism, easily hurt, weight gain
• Weather changes, Alcohol, milk

• Hot flashes

starts in face, flushes red, heat travels through neck front of body until thighs, new back
Worse > stress at night>wake up every time right before hot flash up to 20 a day
Get extremely hot but not really sweaty except> arm pits very smelly>under breasts
Bothersome in summertime to the point that the immune system was weakened (bladder infections, ring worm which I had never before)
• oily scalp and hair
wash hair daily up to three times, dry skin overall
• Insomnia
Usually 12 am to 2 am thinking about things, feel pains worse at night and upon wakening, don’t want to get up because I think will have a bad day often don’t feel as bad as think once I get up awake before hot flashes
• Weight gain
Increased hunger, can behave in the morning but it is like I opened a flood gate and could always snack on nuts, candy, chocolates, makes me very angry because nothing fits and I was always able to eat everything. worse stress and worry. I don’t appear fat to others due to extreme thin built but I do have quite some extra fat in mid section and thighs
Only lose weight in face and breast if I diet, needs to come off all by itself.
• Joint pain
Joint pain came on with menopause, stiff in right shoulder, right index finger, pain in elbows some days better than others
• Vaginal discharge
Somewhat smelly, slight burn, yellow to greenish for several weeks worse with tight pants or not washing.
• Sinus pain and muscle pain
Worse from weather change, cold fronts, rain fronts. Muscle pain boring in nap of neck and shoulders. Pain above eye socket, along nostrils towards jaw, if pain is extreme I have to vomit. Better after front is through, or worries
Used to have migraines from age 6 until childbirth age 23 than the sinus pains came on.
• Hysterectomy ovaries still intact
I was one stage away from cervical cancer, fibroid, extreme heavy periods every two weeks for many years. Still get PMS symptoms every 2 weeks but they do wary.

• Cold hands or feet they do get warm, cold chills down back
• Materialistic
Worry extremely about money, even so we are financially sound, I also tend to hoard but I am clean living and meticulous, since childhood because I had a stingy stepmother.
• Constipated
• Nervous stomach from worries or stress
• Sunken face with bags under eyes
• Tip of nose is red
• Tip of tongue light red with slight white coating
• Pale face flushes easily red with heat or embarrassment
Thank you very much

my wife also have menopause since 4 month after our baby.

her sleep is ok
no flashes etc not weight gain.

is it normal?
kashifjan 9 years ago
She is not having menopause, she is having amenorrhoea (supressed menses). You should work out her remedy on the basis of her totality of symptoms.
kadwa 9 years ago
Thank you for responding so quickly. I ordered the Lachesis. I was wondering, I am 5 weeks into an aloe vera Detox, which I was supposed to do for about 3 month. Will that interfere with the remedy? thank you.

Dear Dr. Kadwa

Thank you so much for your help and all the dedication trying to help people which don't know where to turn to any longer, otherwise.

It's been 2 weeks since I have taken your recommended dose of Lachesis. I could tell the next day that my belly felt smaller not like I had swallowed a ball. My appetite seems more on the normal side.

I also noticed some old symptoms surface like my neck and shoulder pains are very intense like they used to be for many, many years, but the stiffness in the neck is a little better.

Also I awake with pretty bad breath and I am constantly rubbing my teeth with my tongue, because of excess tartar that was gone before and is now back.

This morning I woke up with crusty eyes, I used to have that a lot when I was younger.

The first night I took the remedy I slept 12 hours, the better sleep lasted about three days. I sleep about 2 hours I am waking up alot again and I do not feel well rested.

I don't look very heathly my eyes are very sunken.

I still have no sexual desire what so ever.

A friend told me last week how much I have changed in the last year. I just don't enjoy things the way I used to.

The hotflashes felt a little less hot and intense but last night I woke up alot and it felt like my core heat was up

I think my facial pain might be less intense, too.

Yesterday, was a bad day a front came in and today a snow front is expected. I feel like I am here but like may eyes are pushed into their sockets. My neck is tight and not enough circulation is going to my head.

Overall I do not feel too bad during the day I just wish I could feel happy and more carefree again like I just to.

I know this probalby will take a long time since I got this way over decades, I am just really impatient now. I just wish I could be myself again.

Should I repeat the remedy and how often. I am often around strong smells that can't be avoided. I been really good about not drinking coffee even so I could die for a cup. I read this morning that wine is an antidote for Lachesis which I didn't know. I had an occasional glass in the last two weeks.

Once again thank you so much.

You should take a single dose of Lachesis 200 if you find that your condition is not improving or there is a relapse. There is no point in losing patience and taking the dose when there is improvement taking place under the influence of the earlier dose. You should repeat the dose only after a gap of 15 days.
