GUIDELINES FOR GIVING HOMOEOPATHIC CASE INFORMATION

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.

Please do not answer each of the following questions by placing all your problems in each one. Each of these questions needs to be answered for each problem eg. For you headaches answer 1-7, then for your reflux answer 1-7 and so on.

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 occurring?
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.

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. Your parents may need to help you answer these questions.

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

I will probably have more questions for you after that.

I also need to know what homoeopathic remedies you have taken in the past, and what the results were.

Try paramax sachets?
 
ALisha r 8 years ago
I doubt that most people coming here are wanting to try the pharmaceutical drug approach of orthodox medicine, since it is not able to cure them. People come here looking for cures, which homoeopathy as a medical science can offer them.
 
brisbanehomoeopath 8 years ago
Hello brisbanehomeopath,

Apologies for not being comprehensive in describing my symtoms and lifestyle. I had described this in detail in my earlier posts and thought it would be available here as well. I am attaching the same here as well. It describes me and my lifestyle quite elaborately.

------------------

Age: 29 years
Sex: Male
Weight: 72 kgs
Height: 5 ft 7 inches.
Built: Thin (More of bone weight I think!). Narrow chest frame. Average build.
Eyes: I wear light spectacles to correct myopia, but have weak burning eyes in general.
Eating Habits: Vegetarian, with Non-Veg occasionally.
Alcohol: I have around 500 ml beer once in a week or once in 2 weeks.
Work: Employed in a small IT company, spend most of the time in front of computer screen.
Lifestyle: Try to go to the Gym and do Yoga (Pranayam), but am unable to do so regularly because of health and lack of time.

Major Problems: Migraine, Premature Ejaculation, Grey Hair, Acne, Dizziness/Vertigo/Drowsiness.

I have been facing migraine headaches since the age of 12 years. Earlier it used to be cured just by sleeping overnight. But over a period of time, it persisted even after getting up in the morning. Gradually, the duration increased to 1 full day, then 2 full days, and now, if untreated, the pain lasts for almost 3 days! The headaches are quite frequent, almost once a week, and at times, it’s twice a week as well. My mother also has Migraine problem, so it’s a hereditary ailment.

Diagnosis:
• I had my migraine diagnosed from an ENT specialist. She recognized the symptoms and diagnosed it as Migraine.
• She gave me a tablet by the commercial name “Migranil” that I take whenever I have bad migraines. Each tablet is composed of Ergotamine Tartrate – 1 mg, Belladonna Dry Extract I.P - 10 mg, Caffiene (Anhydrous) I.P - 100mg and Paracetamol I.P. – 250 mg.
• One tablet usually cures my headache in 2-3 hours. But, off late, I have to take more than 1 tablet for the pain to be cured.
• Till date, I have not done any MRI or intensive examination of the head.
• Going by the Online Remedy finder, I found out that Belladonna is quite suitable for me and so tried taking Belladonna 200. I used to take 4 pellets of the same once or twice a day. It aggravated my symptoms, with headaches for 5-6 days, but slowly, the problems reduced, and the migraine problem seemed to have reduced. But then, a new problem of drowsiness started. I think it was because of Belladonna only, and I stopped taking the same. Not sure if it was because of excessive dose though.

Triggers:
• My migraine is triggered by Caffiene imbalance in the body. If I miss taking a cup of Tea even 1 day in the morning, then the migraine starts around afternoon. Same applies to other caffeine containing stuff, like Soft-drinks, coffee, Chocolate or eatables containing Chocolate.
• It’s triggered by Alcohol as well, especially Red Wine. Normally, 1 bottle of beer does not cause any trouble, but even a little excess triggers the pain the next day.
• It also starts if I take too much mental tension, or if I had improper sleep.
• Also triggered if I stay hungry for long.
• It also seems to be triggered from atmospheric pressure changes.
• Most of the times, I am unable to identify the trigger.

Symptoms:
• My migraine starts with neck pain, and a feeling of dizziness/drowsiness and vertigo. The neck muscles become stiff, and start paining. The shoulder/collarbone muscles also start feeling stiff. Due to the vertigo, I have to take extra care while walking.
• It seems vessels in the nose also become constricted, since the nose feels choked while breathing. It’s like having a stuffed nose.
• Slowly, the pain extends to the head and the forehead. It is majorly concentrated at the temples, and it feels better to try and press the nerves on both the temples, as it reduces the pain temporarily.
• It’s a severe pounding pain, in rhythm with the heart beats. Pain is experienced with every heart beat.
• Nauseatic sensation with Vomiting if untreated. I hate the smell of food when in pain, as it aggravates nauseatic feeling.
• Inability to concentrate with the headache, and find it difficult to speak (words don’t come freely) and remember/recall.
• Extra sensitivity to light and sound during an attack. Feels better to lie down in a dark and silent room with a pillow over the forehead.
• The Body feels warmer/hotter during the attack. Palms of the hand feel much warmer than normal.
• Movement aggravates discomfort caused due to the attack.

History and about me.


I had grey hair since very early age (The first grey hair I saw was at 12 years age). Now I have a lot of grey hair. Recently saw a grey hair in the nose and on the chest as well… 

I had severe acidity problem. I was operated for it. The surgery was called “Laproscopic Nissen Fundoplication”. Now the problem has reduced to a great extent. I was diagnosed as having hiatus hernia, because of which acid reflux of the esophagus used to take place. It lead to chest burns and lack of sleep, which irritated me. But after the operation, things have improved. But now, as a side effect of the operation, I have wind problem, and I have been asked to avoid vomiting, unless absolutely essential.

Weak eyes, probably because of sitting in front of the computer screen in the job.

I have a premature ejaculation problem, which bothers me a lot. I ejaculate almost instantenously after entering, and it has affected my relationship with my girlfriend, whom I had to break off with. I have been masturbating since the age of 11 years. It was not that frequent at that age, but when around 16-20 it was quite frequent, almost once a day. I get aroused by sexual thoughts very easily, and I imagine myself being intimate quite often. I think I always had this PE problem, since while masturbating also I always ejaculated within 40-60 seconds. I need a treatment for this problem as well.

Find it difficult to sleep when sitting or when noise, light or disturbance is present. I have to travel around 2-3 hours to the office everyday, but am rarely able to sleep in the Bus. I have difficulty sleeping in the Flights as well, but sleep quite well in Trains. I sleep well, but have a light sleep.

While urinating, I take some time before it actually starts. In the presence of people around, I take a very long time to start, or am unable to urinate even when the urge is really strong.

I am overly concerned about what people think about me. I try to be good to people in general.

I am a perfectionist. If I do something, I always try to do it the perfect way, even if it takes more time and effort. But off late I have become more liberal, as I work with a team of people and many a times things don't go my way. My attitude has somehow changed to a more care-free attitude.

In the job, I get frustrated if I don’t get proper recognition for a good work done. I am not overly jealous. I have good official relations in general, and colleagues like to have me in my team. I own a sense of responsibility towards my work, and like to finish off my work at the earliest. I am not a overly ambitious person, but would like to take more responsibilities and better roles in future.

I am not a very confident person in general, and afraid to try out things. I feel it happens owning to my forgetfulness. At times, I am unable to come up with right words while talking (maybe due to migraine problem). I don’t remember names of people and places properly.

Earlier, I was had Stage-fright, but now it has reduced to quite an extent. If I am asked to talk on the stage about something I know I can do that quite comfortably. Still, I miss some topics when talking on the stage. Its more of a learn-by-heart and talk on the stage for me. I am not always very confident to talk on the stage, as I am always afraid that I would forget the topics.

I have acne/pimples on my face and back as well. I had them since I was 20 years old, but now it has increased a lot now, with multiple spots on my face, that’s affecting socializing. I do not feel quite confident talking to people now. It usually pops up after masturbation.  Every time I masturbate, 1 or 2 pimples pop up.

I like being with my friends and relatives, visiting new places. I enjoy relaxing and forgetting tensions. I like music, and watching movies. I love my parents and believe in the existence of God. I like being alone at times. I like going home to meet my parents once a week, since I don’t stay with them as my office is in another town. I dislike being not recognized for my work, travelling long distances to reach the office every day, being with non-compromising and dominating team members at work.

HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT TRIED:

I tried the online Remedy Finder, and found that Belladonna seems like my perfect remedy for most of the problems. I tried taking Belladonna 200, four pellets once a day for about 3 weeks. It aggravated my migraine symptoms for a week, and then gradually reduced the problem. But later, I saw that I was experiencing heavy dizziness/drowsiness. Since it was interfering with my day to day activities, I stopped taking it.

Later, I went to a homeopathic doctor and he suggested me a Bio-Combination 12 homeopathic medicine. It has Ferr. Phos 3x, Natr. Mur. 3x, Kali Phos. 3x, and Magn. Phos. 3x, in equal quantities. Two 20 g tablets are referred to me 3 times a day for a few months. It has made me more alert and improved the general well-being, but has not reduced my migraine problem and has probably introduced Constipation problem as well.

Thanks for suggesting the Paramax sachets ALisha r. But as brisbanehomeopath rightly suggested, I am looking for a long term solution to my chronic problem. I will be thankful for your help in that direction.
 
coolvap 8 years ago
Ok I will look over the information you have provided and will probably have a few more questions to ask.

Your basic state does not look like Belladonna at all. That remedy will have only acted palliatively. We need to go much deeper than that to cure this.

What are your fears and anxieties? Phobias are of particular interest to me.

What exactly is 'perfect'? Where are you a perfectionist?

What are you concerned people with think about?

What is the feeling when people are present and you need to urinate?

What does recognition mean to you? What does it mean when you don't get it?

Describe more on being jealous? What do you mean by jealousy?

What things are you afraid to try out?

Describe the experience of being on stage.

This already looks like a remedy that I know fairly well, but lets see if you can confirm it for me or if you lead me in a new direction.
 
brisbanehomoeopath 8 years ago
Hello Dr. Kempson,

Thanks again for the efforts you have been putting to this case! I will try to answer your questions to the best of my abilities.

------------

What are your fears and anxieties? Phobias are of particular interest to me.

• I'll describe my fears as rejection, being a failure, gang voilence, stage fright. Maybe Coakroaches, but I actually hate them.

• I still do not have a life partner, so I'm anxious if I will actually get one! But this may be related to my PE problem. I don't feel very confident in approaching or getting around with girls probably due to Performance issues! I'm anxious to know how I'll be doing in my job in the days to come.
• Phobia - Probably Migraine. It strikes at the most unfortunate times when I should be performing at my best. I'm not overly afraid of heights/insects.

What exactly is 'perfect'? Where are you a perfectionist?

• I like to be perfect in my work. My deliverables should be perfect in all aspects. It should conform to the best practices and the required specifications.
• My vehicle has to work perfectly. If I have to rework on some issues in the car, I will continue working till it meets my taste.
What are you concerned people with think about?
• I like to be good in the eyes of people. I guess I like to be seen as a nice, caring, responsible and capable guy and I try to live up to that image.

What is the feeling when people are present and you need to urinate?

• I somehow become concious that others are present around me. Unless there are other distractions like loud noises or sound of flowing water or exhaust fans roaring loudly, I am unable to pee. I feel people will be peeking when I do and I am somehow not comfortable with that. Although these problems occur at a public place, I can easily pee when in a closed space where I am sure there will be no such problem. I never face this problem at home.
• Just out of curiosity, is this somehow related to my Premature Ejaculation problem?
• Can it be related to an operation that was performed on me when I was an infant? The operation was done for full body blood transfusion and was performed 3 times within a week of my birth. I have operation scars just above my navel for the same.

What does recognition mean to you? What does it mean when you don't get it?

• Recognition and credits mean a lot to me. I like (and expect) to be recognized for a work well done especially considering the efforts I put in doing the same. I hate it if the credits for my work are wrongly passed on to someone else. I don’t like being credited for someone else’s work and expect the same from others.

Describe more on being jealous? What do you mean by jealousy?

• Well to be honest I feel jealous if people zoom past me in great cars or bikes. I feel why am I driving a mediocre car or bike and why can’t I afford what the other person is driving?
• As I am a person with average build, I feel sad (and somewhat jealous) when people with much stronger personalities are around. Many a times they are accompanied by their life partners and I again feel bad that I am still single!
• I percieve that my mother is not as great and caring as other mothers. I feel jealous of other friends and collegues when I see their mothers caring such a lot for them.
• Of course, at times I see really poor people and feel that I am much better placed than them! I do realize that life must be so difficult for them!

What things are you afraid to try out?

• Trying out Financial Investments.
• Trying new places in the city alone.
• Approaching a girl eventhough I am attracted to her!

Describe the experience of being on stage.

• Not quite comfortable being on stage. Migraine episodes make it difficult to recall things at times, due to which I tend to forget planned topics. This makes my stage presence uncomfortable and difficult.

------------

Just to add to my case, my migraine gets triggered by exposure to sunlight as well. Exposure to bright afternoon sunlight for long periods of time causes problems to me.
 
coolvap 8 years ago
I believe the core of your case is covered by the remedy LYCOPODIUM. My suggestion would be to get 200c.

INSTRUCTONS FOR SPLIT DOSING

Firstly, you need to create a separate dosing bottle. Get a bottle with a dropper, 15-30mls in size, and fill it with a mixture of water and alcohol (5 parts to 1 part). Dissolve 2-4 granules or 2-4 drops of the medicine you bought from the pharmacy into this mixture. Your doses will be made from this bottle.

Hit the bottle firmly against the palm of your hand, or another elastic surface like a book. It should be a firm hit not a tap. 2 hits is enough to begin with, and should not be increased unless it is clear that it is needed. The water in this bottle will 'remember' the number of times you have hit it, so that subsequent doses will be stronger (necessary to overcoming the resistance of your disease).

Place 1 drop into an amount of water - I would start with 1/4 cup (62mls). Stir thoroughly and take 1 teaspoon into the mouth. Throw the rest of the cup away.

This is one dose. Repeat doses would be started from the 2 hits on the bottle.

Each step of this process can be adjusted to reduced aggravation or to increase the effect of the medicine. In order to be able to do this, it is important to measure each step (count the hits, the drops, measure the water etc).


Take one dose only at first, and report the response after 3-5 days (or as soon as something worth reporting happens).

By the way, I am a qualified homoeopath, but not a medical doctor, so David is fine :)
 
brisbanehomoeopath 8 years ago
Hello David,

{Will address you as David henceforth :)..}

I sincerely appreciate your help and efforts. I request you to help me with a few clarifications please:

• Is LYCOPODIUM the same as Lycopodium Clavatum or are they different?

• Is a potency of 200C the same as 200?

• In the 'Instructions for Split Dosing', you have mentioned that a mixture of Water and Alcohol is required. What Alcohol has to be used for this? Will the homoepathic pharmacist provide the same? Moreover the water in question has to be distilled water or normal tap water?

• Any food restrictions or lifestyle changes to be followed to aid working of the medication?

I somehow recall taking Lycopodium Clavatum 200 two times a day for a few days some years back. I started getting strong erections due to which I stopped taking the same! Does this happen normally when taking Lycopodium Clavatum?
 
coolvap 8 years ago
Yes those two names are fore the same remedy, and the potency is the same (we usually assume C scale with a number).

Any spirit is fine - I typically use brandy or vodka. Nothing that has milk or cream in it. Pure ethanol alcohol is also fine but usually you need a license to buy that.

The water is probably best as spring water, but my patients sometimes use tap water with no apparent problem.

No restrictions necessary. If the remedy aggravates (temporarily worsens) your symptoms, or brings back old symptoms, try not to suppress them with medication if possible.

Do you normally get problems with erections? If so it could have been a curative response.

Since you took 200c before, I would also buy 1M. Seems someone else has seen what I have seen.
 
brisbanehomoeopath 8 years ago
Thanks David,

All my queries have been answered now.

Yes, i had experienced temporary aggravation of my migraine symptoms due to use of BELLADONNA earlier and I did not supress them. I will honor the same when using Lycopodium as well.

Problems with erections... No, I get normal erections. But as I have already stated, I definitely have a PE problem which at best can be stated as Severe!

Do you want me to get Lycopopium in both 200C and 1M potencies? Please let me know when shall I use the 1M potency?
 
coolvap 8 years ago
Get both potencies. The only reason you would use 1M is if I see the need for it, which could be quickly or never!
 
brisbanehomoeopath 8 years ago
Alright David, I will get the homeopathic medicines suggested right away. Will keep you posted on the progress... Thanks again!
 
coolvap 8 years ago
Hello David,

Greetings for the day!

As suggested, I have bought the homeopathic medicine Lycopodium in both 200 and 1M potencies. I made a dosing bottle using 5 to 1 parts water to alcohol. The alcohol used was bought from the homeopathic pharmacist itself.

As advised, I took one dose of the homeopathic medicine on 31-Oct-2011. Kindly inform when and how often should I repeat the medicine. How long should I wait before repeating the dose?

-----

My Progress Report:

29-Oct-2011 (Sat) - Had gone on a long drive of around 600 kms on bumpy roads. Drove till late at night. Delayed food intake, although well hydrated all the time.

30-Oct-2011 (Sun) - A nagging headache when I woke up in the morning. It was a usual relaxing day spent at home. Although I tried to avoid taking medication, I had to take it to be relieved of the pain.

31-Oct-2011 (Mon) - A usual office day. Not a busy one. Slept really late at night.

01-Nov-2011 (Tue) - It was a usual office day with manageable work load. As had slept quite late the earlier night, my sleep was incomplete and I felt tired during the day. In the afternoon, migraine was triggered. Tried to avoid taking any medication. Bought the Homoepathic medication (Lycopodium) and took a single dose as suggested after making a dosing bottle. Waited for sometime for the medication to take effect. Failing to see any relief from the homeopathic medication, I took the migraine medication.

02-Nov-2011 (Wed) - It was a usual office day with manageable work load. Headache continued in the morning. Was relieved sometime in the afternoon. I had a dizzy feeling for quite some time, possibly due to the migraine medication.

03-Nov-2011 (Thu) - Usual office day, but had to stay awake till late at night at home. Food on time and kept myself well hydrated.

04-Nov-2011 (Fri) - Again a usual office day. But again I had to stay awake till late at night. Food on time. Well hydrated throughout. Thankfully no migraines.

05-Nov-2011 (Sat) - It a relaxing holiday. Thankfully no migraines eventhough I slept quite late at night. Have kept myself well hydrated and had food on time.

-----

Overall my energy level and thoughtfulness of the mind seems to be below average. I have a dull dizzy feeling and am lacking the vibrant, energetic feeling.

Hello David,

Greetings of the day!

As instructed, I have taken a single dose of Lycopodium 200. Please let me know when I am supposed to repeat it.

Thanks!

I need to assess this dose now.

Go through your symptoms one at a time, marking them as better, worse or the same.

If better or worse, give them a % or score to show how much. If you can tell me how exactly they are better or worse.
 
brisbanehomoeopath 8 years ago
Hi David,

Status of the symptoms are as follows:

Migraine: Had one migraine episode before taking a dose. I took medication for migraine as the pain was quite bad and Lycopodium taken in the recommended dose did not help after waiting for 4 hours. After that episode, thankfully no more episodes. %change:- probably 0%.

Vertigo/Dizziness: Still have dizziness sensation. I get this sensation while sitting, walking, driving, playing. %change:- probably 5%

Concentration/Memory Retention/Recall: No significant improvement here. Probably the dizziness sensation still overrides these aspects. %change:- 0%

General Energy level: Seems unchanged. %change:- 0%

Acne/Pimples:- There is a marked increase in the number of pimples on my face and back. Around 3-4 pimples have popped up since taking the last split dose of Lyc. 200. %change:- 20%

Sleep: Getting good sleep. Seems to be some good improvement on this aspect. %change:- 20%

Caffeine sensitivity: As mentioned in my case history, I experience caffiene sensitivity. Meaning if I skip a regular caffiene dose, I risk triggering a migraine attack. I see a marked improvement on this aspect. Varying amounts of caffeine intake has not triggered an episode in the last week. %change:- 20%

Sexual Desire:- I feel a higher desire for the same. %change:- 40%

Sunlight and Temperature sensitivity: Seems to be an improvement on this aspect as well. Did not get a migraine episode eventhough I had significant sunlight exposure. %change:- 20%

--------

I failed to mention this in my case history earlier, but I have a slightly HIGHER BLOOD PRESSURE. The last reading was 140/90. I fail to understand why I have a high BP eventhough there is no family history. I am not a fat person, I avoid eating junk food. I don't eat overly salty or fried stuff and maintain a normal lifestyle. Some pointers on this aspect will definitely help me...

--------

As always, I truly appreciate the efforts you have been putting on my case. May God bless you! :)
 
coolvap 8 years ago
Ok there is improvement in several areas. Not major but certainly marked. That improvement is in the general spheres of sexual energy, environmental sensitivity, and sleep. One major trigger for the problem seems to have been reduced as well which is a good sign.

On top of that there has been an increase in skin symptoms to go along with these changes. This is expected according to our principle of the Direction of Cure (things moving from inside to out).

There has been no change in the mental state though, for which the remedy highly indicated.

So we have two possibilities here - the potency is not correct, or we have not reached the threshold level for deeper change.

The easiest way to reach that level is to take repeat doses, with more succussions (hits) on the bottle.

Potency relates to the level at which the disease expresses itself. 1M more precisely affects the mental level, so it is possible 200c may not be deep enough to get to those symptoms.

However, having started at 200c we must first see it through. So my suggestion would be to repeat the 200c, but hit the bottle 3 times.

Hello David,

I hope you are doing great!

Its been a week and I wanted to post an update... So here it goes...

Migraine: Had an intermittent headache for around 3 days. Seemed like Migraine, but as the intensity was quite less, cannot confirm it as Migraine. I probably experience sensitivity to Chocolate intake as well. On that particular day, I did not have milk with a little chocolate powder that I normally take in the morning. Hence, towards the evening, I had a heavy head with a dizzy feeling (It was a normal working day). This headache lasted throughout the night and in the morning I woke up with the headache as well. I went to the office and was not comfortable working there due to the headache. Felt better towards the evening though. Again, the next day I went to a outing. It was a sunny day and probably due to this I again had an intermittent headache. Thankfully the headache subsided around evening that day. %change:- probably 5%, as the intensity was light, but cannot confirm on the same. (Last update was 0%)

Vertigo/Dizziness: Still have dizziness sensation. I get this sensation while sitting, walking, driving, playing. %change:- None (Last update was 5%)

Concentration/Memory Retention/Recall: No significant improvement here. Probably the dizziness sensation still overrides these aspects. %change:- 0% (Last update was also 0%)

General Energy level: Seems unchanged. %change:- 0%

Acne/Pimples:- Around 2 pimples have popped up since taking the last split dose of Lyc. 200. %change:- 10% (Last update was %change:- 20% )

Sleep: Getting good sleep. But no significant change from last week. % change:- 5% (Last update was %change:- 20%)

Caffeine sensitivity: No major change in this aspect compared to last week. Seem to be experiencing problems with Chocolate sensitivity. %change:- 5% (Last update was %change:- 20%)

Sexual Desire:- The higher desire reported last week has subsided this week. %change:- 5% (Last update was %change:- 40%)

Sunlight and Temperature sensitivity: I did experience discomfort in sunlight with intermittent headache as reported. %change:- 5% (Last update was %change:- 20%)

----------------------

I wanted to report the following 2 observations as well, which have not been covered in my earlier posts:

• I am getting hard stools in the morning. The beginning is hard, the rest is normal. The hard beginning causes discomfort and also results in some amount of bright blood showing up in the area. This seems to have increased after I started taking Lyc. 200.

• My second observation is that my body feels warmer than others in general. I have seen that my colleagues report my hands being warmer whenever I shake hands with them. They ask if I am ill or if I am having fever, even though I feel normal.

• Additionally, I sweat comparatively less than other people. I have observed that for an identical effort made (e.g. climbing a small mountain/playing single player games being opponents) I experience much lesser sweating.

• My blood pressure (as reported in my earlier posts) was diagnosed as 140/90, which is on the higher side.

Is any of the above a cause to worry or does it in any way indicate potential change required in our current medication routine?

So there is some change, but it is small. I am less convinced now of the suitability of the remedy. In fact it seems that the initial changes are diminishing despite repeating the remedy.

Let me reanalyse the case. I will suggest a better remedy.

Hello David,

Thanks for your quick response. I hope you are doing great.

Just a query... (You may choose not to answer the same....) You mentioned that the remedy may not be suitable for my condition. Just wanted to know in this regard, is the medication supposed to act so quickly towards curing my ailments (Especially when I have taken only 2 doses of the medication, which seems to be quite small)?

Thanks a tonne!
