The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Extreme shyness and anxiety

Earlier I posted a message here at the forum about my 11 year old daughter who suffers from extreme exam fear and a general fear if meeting new people and going out in public. Lycopodium was recommended for her at the forum and it showed immediate and amazing results.

I have similar problems with my 6 year old daughter. She is afraid to go anywhere by herself. At school she hardly has any friends and keeps to herself. Even the slightest questioning or effort to talk to her leads to tears and panic attacks. At home she's just the opposite. She's talkative and friendly though pretty cranky at times. I gave her lycopodium in the wet dose a month ago but unlike my older daughter it had no effect on her. Any advice in this regard would be appreciated.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
It is unlikely, that two siblings with 'seemingly' similar problems will need the same remedy. One has to look at the peculiar symptoms in the case to pick the right remedy.

The information you have given is not quite sufficient for a proper analysis.

We are looking for complete information about her habits, behavior, fears, anxieties, aggravating situations, triggers for panic attacks, gestures, and anything in general which might make us understand her better as a person.

Information about any strong response to environment (sunlight, cold air, open air, seaside, warmth etc...), her food cravings and aversions if any, diseases suffered since childhood, and diseases suffered by parents should also be provided.

Yes as Sameer has said, it is rare if not almost unheard of for 2 family members to need the same remedy, despite superficial appearances.

I often see whole families in clinic (one at a time of course) and while it is valuable understanding the family dynamic and getting viewpoints from others, it rarely helps me to choose a remedy, instead it just helps me decide what questions to ask.
