This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
You have been experiencing these symptoms how long after taking the remedy? Whether there were no symptoms before taking the remedy.

I have taken the remedy partly because I have got bloating and very slow digestion but bloating and slow digestion has got worse since taking Lyc 6c x 1 and 3 doses of Lyc 30c about 10 days of suffering now !!

It is unlikely then that this is the simillimum.

Typically an true aggravation will last only a few days. While there are individual variations, an aggravation usually begins within 3 days, peaks at about 3-5 days, and improvement begins to show itself at 6-7 days. After 7 days improvement should become more and more noticeable.

There are reasons why some people aggravate for longer:-

1. Highly sensitive people (although the real simillimum cures this tendency)

2. Tissue changes (pathology which has altered the structure of the body) is present, often advanced.

3. The dose was too frequent and too large (largeness of a dose is the physical amount taken ie. number of drops or pellets, amount of water used to dilute it, whether the dry pillules were taken instead of a liquid dose)

4. There has been a lot of suppression of the symptoms over a long time by medical drugs or surgery.

A remedy that is taken only for the physical symptoms, especially in just one part of the body, may not be dealing with the underlying cause of the problem. This means it can suppress it, while the deeper cause continues to pour energy into the location (with increased pressure to compensate for the suppression which can result in a 'worsening' of it).

A true simillimum will address all the peculiar, rare, strange, characteristic symptoms that define the complaint, and will resolve with very little difficulty. The common symptoms for the complaint may not lead to the simillimum on their own (or at all).

A similar remedy (one that is not a perfect match) may struggle to some degree to cure, which might result in more aggravation or new symptoms arising.
