So, when you are angry, what do you do? Yell, scream and throw things around
OR
keep quite?

Please describe your fear(s) in detail with examples?

'Sleeping disturbances- get up 2-3 times at night
'
Please give details about your sleep and dreams?

Is Alumina helping?

What is the size of your prostate and PSA count?
 
nawazkhan 8 years ago
Reply to your query :
1.Whenever i become angry, I
remain quite and do not
speak to the concerned
person even fo rseveral
days.
2.Fears of vertigo and fall
down either on road or in
the crowded places as it
happened 4-5 occasion in
the past.
Fear of death at night
whenever i feel some
pressure in chest may be due
to some upward thrust of
air from the abdomen.
3.My sleep is very light and dreamy. Every night i wake up in ever 2-3 hours interval when the dream ends. Type of dream - Going to latrine in places which are unknown to me, roaming in a hilly places and afraid of looking below, dreaming of dead persons nearer to me.
4 Additional Information :
About 12 yrs ago once i faced across a very fatal train accident where a large numbers of causalities were there but i remained unhurt. A fear psychosis ran after me about two years. I don't know whether it is still in my subconscious mind or not.
5. No, Alumina is not helping

Hi, Nawazkhan,
Taken one dose Conium Mac 200 today morning. Report of which will be given after some days.
- I want to add some more information which i hav missed in my earlier posts.
(a) I am taking eye drop for
Glaucoma since last 4 yrs.
(b) Every evening my stomach distends and i feel an upward air pressure on chest and heaviness on back of head & neck. At that time my systolic blood pressure increases . which slowly comes down when air pressure reduces. Would you please suggest what medicine i shall take at that time ?
Regards

The suitable remedy I think is Alumina-200.
1.Take 4 pills 2 times a day for 8 days
2. another good remedy is 'Gandharva Haritaki' Churn (powder) one teaspoon at bed time for 8 days.
I think this will solve your problem
Give feed back after 8 days

I have consulted an allopathy doctor for my stomach ailments. He has prescribed the following medicines which i prefer to mention here.
-Motilium M(contains Domperidone to treat gastroparesis which increases the movement and contraction of the stomach and intestine, allowing food to move more easily through stomach).
- Darolac Cap.(A probiotic comprise of Lacto bacillous sporegens )
- Thyronorm 25mg ( for slight increase in TSH level)
In this connection, it is apprised that now a days following symptoms do occur in addition to the symptoms as mentioned earlier viz. fatigue, excessive sleepiness (but no sleep) , Itching on head , dry skin, increase in weight ( 1.5 kg in last three months), low body temperature and constipation) Are these indicates to Hypothyroidism ?
Can i take the above allopathy drugs Motilium and Darolac alongwith the homeo medicnes ? I am not inclined to take Thyronorm for slightly high value of TSH . You may suggest for homeo medicine for that.

In view of above, do you want to review the selection of your prescribed medicine ?

Hi, I've looked at, please take Aloe Socotrina Q first, 10 drops in 2 sips of mineral water, 3 times a day, for 2 days. Then, we will go from there. Regards, Nawaz
 
nawazkhan 8 years ago
Yes, I have taken Aloe Soc Q for two days. Improvement in any of the symptoms are not yet surfaced. Rather, there is feeling of heaviness on head through out the day. Waiting for further reply.

It seems that none of the homoeopathic remedies are working on you. What may be the reason in your opinion? Are these remedies being cancelled by something you take?

How do you prepare and when do you take your dose?
 
nawazkhan 8 years ago
My reply :
1. The reasons for non working
of the prescribed medicines
are not known to me. Practically i do not feel any
changes in physical and
mental level. It would be
better for me if i know the
changes generally expected
with the above medicines.
2.I had not taken any other
homeo medicine along with the above medicines. So there is a least chance of cancellation of the remedy.
3. I have taken 10 drops of the remedy mixed properly in half a cup of mineral water. The doses were early morning in empty stomach, afternoon and at night one hour before meal.
It is my bad luck that the above medicines did not responded to me.
You are requested to review my case further and suggest me accordingly,
regards
ranjan

Dear

Dr. Nawaz posted that you have already taken Alumina-200

If many remedies are going in vain why not to try

1. Kali Carb-200 6 pills 2 times a day

2. Take one teaspoonful pure Ghee in a cup of hot milk in morning (Cow milk)

Give feed back after 8 to 10 days

Good prescription by shouse_nsk! Thanks.

Please take Kali Carb as suggested.
 
nawazkhan 8 years ago
Hi! Tamhankar and Nawazkhan,
Thanks both of you for prompt reply.I shall start Kali Carb 200 for three days initially and feed back will be given thereafter. My stomach is aversion to milk and creates acidity. Further, i am afraid of taking one tea spoonful of ghee daily due to my high value of serum cholesterol level (245). Are there any alternative to (ghee + milk) ?
with regards
