persistent headache for over a monthI am trying to find the right homeo treatment for my husband. His present problem started with a visit to India last month (We live in US). Feb 13-25th. He was there because of a death in the family
(his sister's husband, a sudden and unexpected event), it caused him great mental anguish. The pain started right after he attended the prayer ceremony for the departed soul. The initial headache it was accompanied by a severe toothache and a low-grade fever, for which he took a pain-killer, and then saw a dentist, who advised him to see a dentist back home in US as there was not enough time for treatment over there. But he also gave him some anti-biotics to pull through the stay. Afetr three days on those, he got a bad case of loose motions, while in transit. He took some over-the coutnter anti-diarhia medicine at Hong-Kong airport, which put him back in control. After reaching US he complained of: 1, an upset stomach
2, a constant headache
3, a weekness in his thighs
4, momentary blurring of vision
We decided to wait and rest, as he also had jet-lag and asociated tiredness. after a week or so, we started to worry a little. But he was quite sure that the headache had something to do with his teeth, so he went to see a dentist, who could not locate a direct connection, and sent him to another one, with similar results.
afetr that we shilfetd our focus to a possibility to sinus gone bad because of the high-altitude flight. For some days, treatments like nasal-irriagation (jal-neti), hot-oil message, steam etc, relieved the symptoms quite a bit, but a tenderness in the right temple and at the top of the head continues, somedays better, somedays worse. We have tried a few doses of Nux. Vom. in the following manner
1. Nux Vom 30 on the toungue, one dose, followed by a water dilution.
2. Nux Vom 30 on the toungue after 3 days
3. Nux Vom 200 on the toungue after 3 days
4. Nux Vom 200 water dilution after 3 days
Each time, the initial reaction was an aggravation for a few hours followed by visible relief which lasted for a couple of days.
He does not want to get into a cycle of various head scans and all and would like this to be resolved through homeopathy albiet he is running out of patience as it has been over a month already since the headache started.
Other symptoms are;
1. a pain has recently developed along the right shoulder blade.
2. stools are not well formed
, also a feeling of pressure in the stomach even after passing of stool.
3. slight pain in a lower right molar
4. anxious and scared that it may turn out to be something seriously big like a brain tumor.
Another recent event (his mom had an accident back in India) might have added to his mental stress.
In general, he has a very anxious nature, and also has a problematic digestive system (mostly gas).
Last year when he went for his yearly health check, he was diagonosed with severe Vit d deficiency, for wjich he takes VitD capsules though not very regularly.
Please advise about what course to follow in future.
