Doc Rahiq /Doc Nawazkhan..pls Help ::::::Brisbanehomeopath , pls help-anxiety, weakness after angioplasty

Hello Doctor David,

This post is related to my father.3 years back, he underwent Angioplasty, there by doctors inserted stent.
Below I am sharing the details and the problems he is facing in his words.
Requesting you to please take his case and help.

Gender: Male
Age: 62
Body Type: Average/normal
Height: 5.6
Weight: 67 Kgs
General appearance: Overall weakness
Have you used homeopathic medicines before? If so what, and what homeopathic potencies did you use? No

Please answer the following questions in a descriptive manner after careful analysis and recollection of previous experiences

and happenings.

1. What exactly happens?
3 years back, I underwent Angioplasty, there by doctors inserted stent.At that time I was overweight(82 Kgs) ,after that I

reduced the intake of unsaturated butter , stopped taking saturated fats , increased walk and reduced weight to 67 kgs and became fit.About 1 year back I found some changes in myself, like I started getting irritated quickly, felt physical weakness as well as internal weakness followed by less will power, which was strong before.
I then increased food intake slightly and felt alrite.Sometimes I feel now loss of self confidence.Let me share an example'I was to purchase some property, I felt very uncomfortable in the whole process like carrying money, dealing with new unknown persons etc.

Sometimes , I feel that I overreact with certain problems or magnify the problems , there by become more tensed as compare to
the problem.I find myself helpless.

I become more anxious as compare to the anxiety which I used to feel before angioplasty.I get disturbed from the things related to me even sometimes by the things not related to me, like negative news in the newspaper, television etc.These things have a disturbing effect on me.

I have also observed that after angiplasty ,some times I pass out hard stools.

I too suffered from eczema few years back, it has been cured.

I have also been given medicines after angioplasty , to be taken life long.They are:

Lipicure-20 mg( once in a day)
clavix-as -150(once in a day)
seloken xl-25(1/2 tablet , once in a day for Blood pressure)

I am not a kind of person who would share problems with any body , not even with family members.

Nature wise I am introvert and do not laugh much but I enjoy the company of my few childhood friends.
I have a helping attitude towards others but my family members say that people exploit me.

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.

When ever I feel some tension, I feel heaviness in head.This heaviness remains till the problem persists.When I say heaviness, I mean tired feeling in the head. Feeling of tightness in both the temples.When I am stressed, I find it difficult to take decisions.

Unknowingly my gesture is this that my forehead is wrinkled and eyes open wide apart.

Sometimes during stress, I find myself in this situtation and I stay in this position for several minutes,which sometimes could be as long as 30 mins.

I feel I am becoming a weak person psyiologically, psycologically and mentally as compared to what I was 2-3 years back.

Sometimes I think that all these symptoms are because of my weakness.

My Blood pressure is generally 80/120 mmhg.

3. What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?
Arguements, discussions make the situtaion worse (Particularily ,If the arguements are not according to my view point I get irritated.

4. What creates some relief for the problem?

1)If others agree to what I say.
2)If I am convinced.

5. What triggers the problem into occuring?

When I think I cannot fulfill the expectations of others or if I feel the situtaion is beyond my control I get tensed.

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?

It started around 2 years back.I underwent the angioplasty.I feel that to some extent , this is because of the medicines that I have been taking but doctor says that these medicines are mandatory.

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.

There was a property dispute in which the court of law was involved and that incident was traumatic and had an effect for a long time.The effect was tension and worry for me and my family.

Discuss the way that you manage or deal with your problems, or any problems that occur in your life.

I enquire a lot before taking any decision till I am fully satisfied.Once I am convinced I take the decision.

Discuss any patterns you have noticed in your behavior especially concerning your disease.

In general I am very soft with my children . When the problem(any kind , small or big) exist I try not to disclose the problem to my kids and act as if everything is ok, but I am not that sweet with my wife particularily in presence of my children and any discussion with my wife, causes the problem to come out in form of Heated exchanges of arguements.
I do not share the things with my family members much.

Increased irritation, tension,weakness and feeling of being pressurised

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.

I am the youngest child in my family.I grew up in a healthy atmosphere with love and affection.My school experince was also very good.I was a hard working and dedicated student , with an ambition to be a successfull man in life.No specific childhood disease.

If your earlier discussions have not mentioned these already, please describe:

1. The specific foods that you crave (not just like) or hate

Bumping, to bring this post to kind notice of Doctor David.

Doc. David,
Pls help
sumedh last decade
Ok while this does resemble a remedy I think I recognize, I need more explanation and description of the following statements:

Irritated quickly

Physical weakness

Internal weakness

Less will power

Loss of self confidence


Disturbed by news/bad news

People exploit me

Traumatic dispute around property

Enquire alot before making a decision
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
irritated quickly: generaly i do get irritated but when i feel that things are going beyond my control or things are not going the way i wanted , i get irritated. eg. my wife asks me to take some action like shift home from one location to another , i feel pressure and get irritated. Reason could be I am comfortable with my existing surroundings and dont want to change my abode and move to entire new surroundings and among all new people whom i dont know.

Physical weakness,Internal weakness,Less will power,Loss of self confidence,Helpless.It is not much how ever internal weakness, less will power, loss of self confidence and helplessness are all interrelated.Infact I feel that because of all thse symptoms I have become mentally little less alert.I cannot take decisions that strongly and swiftly as I used to take before angioplasty.
So i take time and think a lot over taking decisions and sometime think of negative consequences (even if the probability of the occurence of such negative incident is 1 percent) that could occur if that decision is taken.

People exploit me, because I normally do not say 'No' to others.I am always ready to help others , that is why sometimes people take me forgranted and also exploit .Such as they borrow some money and do not return, though I am trying to change myself in this regard.It is further informed that I do no laugh much at homegh my home environment is normal and happy.But with my friends I am Ok and laugh.

Traumatic dispute around property :There was some propery dispute many years ago , in the department where I was serving.I took the correct action and informed my superiors and the administration about the issue.At that time, though internally I was disturbed for the consequences but I did not share it anybody and behaved normally.This was the level of my confidence and will power at that time.I never share such things with other but presently I do not feel that strong and confident.
Since I do not share much, my family members come to know about my feelings from my facial expressions.

Disturbed by news/bad news :When wever I am going through the news papers, on reading some new related to accidenst, air crash etc I feel disturbed.Along with this when I feel that my children have some problem, I feel highly disturbed and feel like going to the place they are staying to help them and for moral support

Enquire alot before making a decision: I am an upper middle class person.Befor doing any purchasing ,i check that all the steps taken by me are correct and will not lead to much loss.

I too had high cholesterol deposition in one of the artery's which lead to angiplasty.Request you to pls help me in that respect as well.

Many Many Thanks

The most obvious choice of remedy here is Lycopodium. I would suggest 200c to begin with. One single dose, taken as per my Split dosing instructions. Begin by using a full cup of water.
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
Remedy taken and i shall keep reporting the changes.
sumedh last decade
The first day I felt quite good but now again, I feel symptoms are back.

I too have a habit of not throwing my things, how old and in a bad condition they are.I do rgue and fight with my wife on this.
I knw she is correct when she says' you should either sell or throw or give to needy, things you do not require' but internally, i do not feel like doing so.
You can take this as one more symptom I have
sumedh last decade
Kindly suggest doctor what shall be done.Shall he wait for some more time to observe if there are any changes ?
sumedh last decade
Normally I would wait 7 days from the dose, and then get him to list all his symptoms.

Next to each symptom, he needs to write Better, Worse, Same, Gone. If better or worse he also needs to write a percentage to show how much.
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
Doctor based on the conversation above I have provided some details

Doctor based on the conversation above I have shortlisted the symptoms below.Let me know if i need to keep more symptoms on radar.
Irritated quickly - Same.Let me provide more details related to this feeling.I have a feeling of taking all the responsibilities on me which means i dont want to de-centralise the responsibility or distribute it among others.This happens when there are works in house, relatives house as well as in office.For instance once i visited my cousins place.There were 5 things to be brought from 5 different places.I take over responsibility in such situations.Although there were many people in the house and work could have been divided among us.But i somehow have a feeling that I should do all the work.When my children or wife tell me that the work should be divided as others are present in the house as doing so much work could degrade your health and create mental tension then i get irritated.I feel i have more qualities of a worker and less qualities of a administrator.When i was in administrative job even then also i used to do those works as well which could have been delegated to others.So the feeling of taking over responsibily was there even before angioplasty.

Physical weakness - 10% improvement.
Internal weakness - Same
Less will power - Same
Loss of self confidence-30% improvement.I have a feeling inside me or in my thoughts that i have to remove the wrong feeling inside me and want to be heathier.I am developing a positive attitute towards solving problems.I have also discovered that when i look on people who are really deprived of needs of living then it creates a feeling that i am blessed by God and i should be happy with my life.There is definitely an increase in my will power and reduction in feeling of helpness.
Helpless -30% improvement
Disturbed by news/bad news - Same
I watched a movie which had villians using arms and ammuniation and performing a theft.I dont like to watch such movies and wonder why these movies which have wrong doings in it are directed and shown to people.I sometimes think that this is related to me becoming old.I also feel that after retiring from job due less focus in work my mind tilts more towards negative things or incidents.I get disburbed when i think or read about the negative things going on in the society, voilence in the movies and accidents corruption etc.I think i fear that anybody can be a victim and these things should not happen to anyone particularly to my near dear ones.
People exploit me - I dont think people exploit me.It is just an interpretation of my family members when they see me taking overresponsibility or lending money to someone who they are sure would not return back the money
Traumatic dispute around property - I have almost erased the incident from my memory and it longer affects me.Even if it comes to my mind i just think its a matter of past and try not to think over it.
Enquire alot before making a decision- Same.This is a behavioral attribute in me.I take long time to decide about all purchases.Sometimes when money involved is huge I take longer time to decide.
sumedh last decade
So there has been some marked improvement in a few areas, and none in some others. Nothing is worse.

So no suppression that I can see, certainly not palliation. We can assume for the moment the remedy is correct, but I believe the potency is wrong.

Can you get hold of 1M? Until then repeat the 200c once more, and before taking 1M we need to do another assessment.
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
Hello Doctor,

My father has taken second dose of lycopodium 200c 15 days back.Here are the results after taking the dose.I have also got hold of 1M.Please assess the condition and suggest when shall he take 1M dose.

Thanks a lot.

Irritated quickly - 50% improvement.Typical cases where i get irritated are like i am not in a habit of sharing my internal feelings and thoughts with others right from my young age.I keep on thinking about the things which i want to do.Because i dont tell others about my feelings, i cannot convince them also about what i want to do.At the 11th hour i tell others what i want to do thinking that there is no other way out.In such a situation others sometimes dont find my view point correct and do not support my views and only then i get irritated.I have also felt that if i convince others many times they agree to what i say but myself being an introvert person this happens rarely.

Physical weakness - 40% improvement.

Internal weakness - 40% improvement

Less will power - 40% improvement..

Loss of self confidence-30% improvement.

Helpless -30% improvement
When some near and dear one of mine is in trouble or is sick or unhappy and is away from me then i keep on thinking about that person's condition and feel sad about it.I want to help that person may be by reaching that person personally.If i cant go to him or her i feel helpless.In such cases i keep on thinking and keep on advising the person the same things again and again.This continues till the person is back to good health.

Disturbed by news/bad news - Same.I think my age has something to do with this feeling and a part of this feeling is due to my age or due to my thinking process.

People exploit me - If someone does some work for me i feel over over obliged.Even if i return the favor by doing more than required for that person even then i feel obligated for the work he has done to me.For example if someone obliges me by 30% and i do 50% for that person i feel the other person has done more for me than i have done for him.

Traumatic dispute around property - I have almost erased the incident from my memory and it no longer affects me.Even if it comes to my mind i just think its a matter of past and try not to think over it.
Enquire alot before making a decision- Same.

Physical condition
From last two years i frequently burp.All the day long i burp no matters whether my stomach is full of empty which means i burp in the morning when empty stomach and also after taking meals.Sometimes they occur 2-3 times.

Well that is good. It appears the second dose built upon the changes from the first dose, creating more improvement.

I believe the Lycopodium is correct.

Do NOT take 1M. The 200c is still effective. Instead take one more dose of 200c exactly as before.
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
Thanks for the reply doctor.I shall make him repeat 200c dose.Doctor there is another problem of excessive burping with him and it happens all throughout the day irrespective of empty stomach or full stomach.I read it is due to some stomach disorders.Can Lycopodium take care of this physical disorder as well?
sumedh last decade
Yes it should. Has that symptom not changed at all?
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
No doctor the burping has not changed at all.
sumedh last decade
Well we will see how it goes. It is fairly low down in the hierarchy, so it may change later in the process.
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
He has taken the dose today.I observed another symptom in him which is random.The symptom is hurriedness in doing activities.He has an eagerness to complete things even if he has sufficient time.For example he was eating apple and he wanted to eat it so very quickly that he did not care to completely chew the piece of apple that was in his mouth.On enquiring why he is eating is so quickly he says i have a feeling to finish the work at as quickly as possible.So there is anxiety and hurriedness in him to complete certain activities in the day.Please let me know if i shall provide more details on this feeling of hurriedness.

Another improvement which has occured after last dose of lycopodium is he has started laughing on jokes.Earlier he used to stay very quite and gloomy and also comtemplating about each and everything.There is definitely and improvement in gloominess to an extent of 50%
sumedh last decade
Excellent result. This remedy seems very good for him.

Hurriedness is a symptom of Lycopodium, and of many remedies. It does not alter my choice in any way.
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
There are some more improvements percentage wise in all areas.Please suggest doctor what should be done now to make the improvement 100%

Irritated quickly - 60% improvement.Sometimes it happens that if my view does nont matches with other persons view i dont want to discuss it with him or her and i get irritated if other person wants to discuss it with me.

Physical weakness - 50% improvement.

Internal weakness - 50% improvement

Less will power - 50% improvement..

Loss of self confidence-50% improvement.

Helpless -50%
Disturbed by news/bad news - Same.
Overresponsibility - Exists but sometimes i think this is my habbit.
sumedh last decade
What happened to the excessive burping?
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
There is no change on burping.
sumedh last decade
Please suggest doctor what is the next step?Shall the medicine be repeated ?
sumedh last decade
Hello doctor,

These are the results after the last dose taken.

Irritated quickly - 70% improvement.Although still he gets irritated at things he does not like but the frequency has reduced and he has started to think over some things which he used to get irritated at earlier.

Physical weakness - 70% improvement.He feels there is strength in his body.

Internal weakness - 70% improvement

Less will power - 70% improvement.He has started taking lead in certain things in which he had become weak earlier.Like there are some family matters in which he tells my mom not to worry and shows confidence while hadling those things.

Loss of self confidence-70% improvement.

Helpless -70%

Disturbed by news/bad news - Same.

Overresponsibility - Exists but sometimes i think this is my habbit.

Excessive burping - Same

Please suggest what to do now.Is there any need to change the medicine as some symptoms are not showing improvement.

Thanks for all the consultation you have given to bring the improvements.
