Chronic Sinus with neck and shoulder pain.Doctors/Homeopaths pls Help !I'm 33 yr old,mother of two lovely kids.Am breast feeding (Only one feed at night) my younger one who is 14 month old.
Am placed in outskirts of Guwahati,Assam,where there isnt a single good Homeopath avlbl,this Forum is the only place I really
look forward to for any Help !
To begin with,I have sinus problem since last 3 yrs,confirmed by an X Ray followed by the advice of getting an Endoscopy done.
I hated the idea of getting a procedure done which doesnt gurantee any 100% +ve results,hence I refused.
Now,probably due to change in weather,am now having the following problems....
1) Severe headache (temples,front on nose,top and back as well)
2)Pain in (right) Jaw, (more in right) Ears.
3) Eyes feel tired all the time.
4)Theres dull pain and stiffness in Neck and Shoulders all the time.
5) My Cheekbone feels numb.
6)I feel 'extremely' Tired,exhausted.Even a small job feels like moving a mountain.Feels alot sleepy too.
7)I cannot concentrate on anything these days,feels confused all the time,hate tight clothing.
8)One of my nose is always blocked,even though I have no seasonal cold.But I do have to cough often,though nothing really comes out,
looks like it sticks wherever it is.All this begins by evening and worse at night (it scares me to sleep at night,i almost feel breathless).
9)I have no sense of smell.
10)Have lot of anxiety all the time.
I have a (Sintex) Home Kit of Homeopathy with 30C Potencies,I have read a few Sinus Issues here in the Forum but Doctors,here,themselves suggest that
the dosage and potencies varies from patient to patient.So I'll be really thankfull if anyone of you could help me out with this,so that in future also if
I have similar problem I can repeat the remedy.
Thank you all in advance,
P.S:Am BFeeding my baby,so can i hope that the suggested remedy wont harm my baby !?

It is important to describe all your problems in as much detail as you are able. One word answers and short sentences are not particularly helpful. Discuss each problem one at a time, providing (as a minimum level of detail) the following information.
1. What exactly happens?
2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.
3. What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?
4. What creates some relief for the problem?
5. What triggers the problem into occuring?
6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?
7. When did the problem start? What was happening in your life at that time? Did some specific event or treatment take place just before the problem started?
Move from one problem to the next, doing the same thing. IT IS VITAL THAT YOU GIVE A COMPLETE PICTURE OF YOUR HEALTH BY PROVIDING ALL PROBLEMS YOU HAVE, EVEN IF NOT CONNECTED TO THE MAIN ONE, AND EVEN IF YOU CONSIDER IT OF LESS IMPORTANCE.
You should address each problem separately using the above 7 questions as a guide. Do not put all your complaints into each of the 7 questions. Discuss one problem at a time. If you have, for example, a headache with nausea, do each component separately too (what makes the head pain worse or better, what makes the nausea worse or better).
As well as this, please describe any traumatic incidents that have taken place in your life. Discuss anything that has had a lasting impact on you mentally, emotionally or physically.
Discuss the way that you manage or deal with your problems, or any problems that occur in your life.
Discuss any patterns you have noticed in your behavior especially concerning your disease.
Discuss any part of your life where you feel stuck or unable to change and grow, especially where this occurred around the beginning of your disease, or as the disease evolved.
Describe your childhood and the kind of environment you grew up in, with reference to your relationships with your family, your school experiences, and any serious childhood diseases.
If your earlier discussions have not mentioned these already, please describe:
1. The specific foods that you crave (not just like) or hate
2. The specific drinks that you crave or hate
3. What your sleep is like
4. How the weather and the temperature affects you
5. What kinds of things in the environment you are particularly sensitive to
6. What your general level of energy is like
7. What your level of sexual energy or desire is like
8. Describe your menstrual cycle
9. Also give these details
a) Body type and build
b) Skin colour and texture
c) Areas of the body tends to perspire on
d) Odour of sweat, body, stool, flatus, urine
e) Colour of stool, urine, sweat
10. Give any reactions to vaccines or medical drugs.

Thanx you so much for your quick response.Highly appreciate it !
I'll need quite some time in answering the questionnaire you put up here.
Am in a lot of pain and discomfort at the moment,moreover,two young kids and household leaves me with no energy to type so much.
So pls give me a day or two.
Am resorting to pain killers and also taking Himalaya's(Aurvedic)'Bresol' for Allergy Bronchitis and rhinitis.
Thank you so much once again!

Suddenly (could be) due to change in weather or diet,
I develop dry tickling cough,throat pain,inflammation,headache...
pounding headache,nose block on lying down,difficult breathing and swallowing,
complete loss of sense of smell,neck-shoulder pain,slight amount of
gas trouble too,eyes stressed out,extrrrreme fatigue of body and mind.
Not able of think clear,calculate or even remember things,as if there are sparks happening in my brain.
2.Describe all sensation of pains.Each pain or sensation shoud be described
in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain?
a) I have throat pain (this pain is always there,only the
degree of pain changes from dull,mild to extreme),the
Doc calls this as Laryngitis (Have been through Anti-biotics too...
it goes temperorily and comes back again).
Right now I have pain in my
throat,have difficulty swallowing food/water...anything,
even Air passage seems difficult.My throat seems to have inflammed.
Throat is very sensitive to anything Sour and Cold.I end up wetting my throat with saliva every now n then,throat feels dry and irritable,
with cough stuck up the walls like a gum, pains specially on inhaling.
b)Severe Headache-Happens probably with either change
in season or if I've had something Sour or Cold...
very sensitive to anything Cold(Colas/Ice Creams
/Dessserts etc) and Sour(Particularly Tamarind)
my sinus probably gets blocked.
Temples,Back,top and Front of my head pains,
its more like dull nagging pain which gets really bad sometimes.
The spot between the eyebrows,above the nose seem to be
the centre of pain.
c)I also have pain in my Jaws (more on right jaw) and Ears
too (again more pain on right one).Dull pain in
Cheekbones with a feeling of numbness.
d)Eyes feel tired and as if under pressure.
e)My neck and Shoulders pain all the time,but with Sinus
around the pain only multiplies.They feel 'stuck' stiff and
numb too sometimes.
f)At any given time one of my nose if fully or partially
blocked,usually when lying down both nose gets blocked
making me breathless.Better with Steam inhalation.And No discharge.
Have no sense of smell.
g)Exhaution,fatigue both physcial and mental.Feel tired all the time,moving
myself for anything is a task in itself.Feels sleepy.Am sick n tired of my
Exhaution.Hate any sort of movement.
h)Anxiety and Fear- Have alot of anxiety,as if in a hurry to finish work
somehow,as if am about to miss the flight.I have this fear of
accidents (Road accident,Natural calamities),fear of death of near and
dear ones,fear of getting diseases etc).
I get irritated on small things and am impatient,I noticed am very kind and helpfull to others(I go out of the way to help ppl)except my own immediate Family.
3.What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?
Am guessing it could be weather change,some Allergy ,Exposure to
cold/eating anything Sour,not sure !
4.What creates some relief for the Problem?
Steam inhalation,Nasivion Nasal drops,Decongestant Medicines.
5.What triggers the problem into occurring?
same as Answer 3.
6.What time of the day or night does the problem occur?
Mornings are okay,its only after sunset and as the
night progresses my problem increases.
7.When did the problem start ? What was happening in your life at that time?Did some specific event or treatment take place
just before the problem started?
Around 3 yrs ago.We were in Ahmedabad (Gujarat)then and were
packing up our household to shift to Guwahati (On Posting!).Since my
cold lasted quite a few days,that time,with really really bad headache,as if my
head wud blast into pieces if I dont ask for medical help.I had to go to the ENT
where it was discovered that my Sinuses are badly blocked and needed to clear
so the Doc suggested Endoscopy which I obviously refused for the reasons
Nothing much really happened before the problem started.
When I was 19,I had Pheunomia (There was a patch in my left lung)
and Typhoid one after the other at a gap of just one week.
I was admitted in the Hospital for 10 days.I had lost around 6 kgs of weight.
After marriage - I have had infertility treatment going for about 4 years after
marriage.On performing a leproscopy,some tubercules were found in my pelvis
for which I was treated with ATT for 6 months.
Two yrs after that I concieved my first born and five years later a second baby.
It was during the ATT treatment that I developed severe joint pains,neck and
shoulder pain n stiffness plus numbness.
Joint pains were so bad that I could not even go to the loo by
myself,I had to be helped to get up or to even sit on the dinning chair.
Later with change in dosage joint pains were settled but neck and shoulder
Apart from all this...5 months back I fell off a bike and
had a (7th) Rib fracture.During this time,I had approached the Forum again
for my quick recovery,http://www.abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/266695/
Secondly,I have Vaginal itch and dryness since last 6 yrs,have tried all allopathy
drugs/ointment but all invain.It disturbs me but I find the situtation hopeless.
My mother ! She passed away on 1 June 2011.She was a mentally disturbed
patient,extremely abusive,had no sense of time and the world around her,
could never share her feelings...pain..emotions with anyone.
She had lost her mental balance after her 3rd delivery (and i was 4th amongst the four siblings )
,because of her mantal state we have had a very difficult childhood,and that
has had an impact on me greatly.
I suffer from Inferiority complex,anxiety and low self esteem...being
sad and depressed has become a part of my nature.
Have lot of negativity too which I try to change by reading books,helping ppl
around,doing things like donating blood on every good occassion like b'days
and/or Anniversary and practice Yoga.
1.I crave for salt.I love pickles and spicy food.
3.My sleep is sound otherwise but with two kids around its usually disturbed.
4.Weather change - extreme weathers gives me a headache.
I like it cool,hate hot and humid climates.
5.I think Cold,dust and dark clouds.
6.Generally am energitic,lively,interested in my job and
try to be as close to perfection as possible.At the same
time am extremely impatient and can get vexed easily even for small things.
7.Yes,this is one more issue I need to deal with .Presently my sexual energies
are in negative,I have absolutely no desire at all,could be becuase of the
itch/dryness or pressures of bringing up baby,dont know.
8.My Menustral cycle are almost regular,bleeds slightly more than before
but again that could be because I got my tubes tied during my second
9.Body Type and Build -
Am 5 feet 4 inches tall,wheatish complexion,dry skin,
Slightly on the heavier side (due to pregnancy/delivery) approx 56 kgs
else I have always been underweight,lots of
small black moles and two red ones developed recently on face,
long Nose,big round eyes,small baby like teeth,thin lips,less hair
on eyebrows,my tongue is usually coated white.
Perspiration more on Forehead,head,neck and back.And I perspire alot.
Odour of sweat/body/stool/flatus/urine seems to be Normal (cant make
out anyway cause I cant smell much since quite some time now).
But my mouth smells it seems (hubby pointed out).
Colour of stool,urine,sweat normal.
no reaction to any vaccine or medical drug.
I hope this is of some help Dr David !
Thank you for being there !

When the throat pain is at its worst, what is the quality of that pain (not the intensity)?
What exactly is the quality 'dull' when you use it to describe pain?
What kind of pressure do the eyes feel they are under?
Describe more on 'stuck' and 'stiff' to help me understand that sensation.
When you move, what exactly do you feel?
Describe where you feel anxiety, and what the sensation of that is?
Do your problems worsen right up until sunrise or do they reach a peak earlier than that?
What is ATT?
Describe the experience of having the sort of mother you did.
Oh also, what homoeopathic medicines have you taken in the past and what response did you have to them?

Am sorry I just couldnt manage to answer all your queries,so I decided to look for a homeopath for consultation.
After talking to me for 15-20 mints,making his mental notes (he followed classical homeopathy),he prescribed me the following....
1) Sodium Chloride 200
(4 pills 2 times a day for 4 days)
2) K Sulph 30
(4 pills 3 hourly for 4 days)
3 hourly makes it four times a day,according to my understanding.
...and asked me to report in 15 days.
I have taken a dose of Sodium Chloride in the morning today and a dose of Sulphur.
But on reading a bit about sulphur,I was wondering if Sulph every 3 hourly for 4 days amounts to 'over dosage' by any chance ???
Waiting for your reply
(hoping i get some reply before am due for its second dose)!
Thanx in advance,
