Gagging from nervousness, nasal drip

Dear Doctor,
For the past 8 years I've had nose problems that would affect my throat. Whenever I'm nervous (which is very often, even little things like going to karaoke or meeting friends) I gag and cough up either mucus or nothing. I feel irritation on my upper throat, and I think it all stems from my nose, because when I'm nervous I feel that something from my sinuses is opening or allowing flow of whatever is in the nose to drip onto my throat. This makes me nervous and when I'm nervous I gag (and sometimes even vomit from the gagging) because of this, so it's a vicious cycle. I've gone to the doctors but they don't seem to know what's wrong. I've had xrays for my stomach to see if it was acid reflux, but I don't think they found anything. however, on a separate xray they did find that i had a serious nose infection, however my insurance expired by then and i wasn't able to follow up. I've taken acid reflux medicine and they haven't worked. Neither have some anti-depressants when I went to the psychiatrist. I do think it's somewhat psychological, but that the main reason is something physical, which is why the anti-depressants didn't help my anxiety and therefore didn't help cure my symptoms. i've went to multiple doctors (~10 doctors) and none of them have given me anything that works, just dumb antibiotics. because of school, lack of money, and no insurance i have not been able to find any answer, but i read a similar post to mine and feel that you have more knowledge.

Here's a list of when my gagging comes up. usually i just cough up mucus or nothing at all:
-when i have a stuffy nose. like during the winter. usually something like a hot shower where i can blow everything out makes me feel better.
-in the mornings. i feel like maybe i have some sort of mental hormone problem in the morning... i am nervous in the mornings and can barely consume food. mornings are the worst.
-when i eat sweet stuff (chocolate, anything with sugar), or stuff that is sticky
-when i eat anything. it gets progressively better as the day goes by. so in the morning i can't function, but at night i have an appetite
-when i eat too full. i feel like my stomach sticks out abnormally when i eat until i'm full.
-whenever i exercise. the first hour will be really bad, but towards the end it eases.
-whenever i lay down on my bed and talk or just lay down on my bed without the purpose of sleeping.
-****when i'm nervous. this is a big one. i can't do public speaking or interviews because i gag so bad beforehand. however most of the time when the moment comes to actually have to speak, my mind eases, but i have gagged during the big moment before.

please let me know if there's any diagnosis. i'm suffering really bad and it's affecting my job search because i avoid anything that requires presentations.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take Argentum Nitricum 200 in the morning and evening for 2 days and see how that affects in next 10-15 days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

If this doesn't help there is a possibility that Lycopodium 200 or Gelsemium 200 may help you.

hi kadwa!

I'm about to purchase Argentum Nitricum 200, but can you clarify which one it is?

There's Format, Potency, and Size when I go to the shopping cart. Which one would be the correct size? Same question for Lycopodium 200. I would like to purchase ASAP. Thanks for the prompt initial response.

hey simon,

thanks. would it be okay to take the pellets instead? pellets = dried pills right? and since i'm only taking it for 2 days wouldn't it be best to order the smaller quantity?

Thanks Simone. Just to confirm, I am ordering Pellets, 200C, 2 dram. correct?
 
kingofhearts 8 years ago
That is correct. :-)
 
simone717 8 years ago
Thanks Simone. I also looked at the Gelsemium and think I would try it if the Argentum Nitricum turns out ineffective for me, so I'm going to purchase Gemsemium as well just to have. Would the dosage be the same? 200C?
 
kingofhearts 8 years ago
Yes it would be same dose and same
procedure as the other.
 
simone717 8 years ago
Okay I made a purchase for both. is it possible to swallow the pellets whole without dissolving them in water (putting it in my mouth and taking a gulp of water would work?)? and Dr. Kadwa (the guy above who suggested Argentum) said to take 2 pills while you said to take 4. which would would it be if I were taking the 200C? would it be 2 pellets in the morning and 2 at night?

Dear Simone,
I took the Argentum Nitricum 200 as instructed (2 pills each time, everyday morning + night, for two days, then wait 10 days) and still have the same problem. Should I take the Gelsemium now or continue with more Argentum Nitricum 200?

Hi King of Hearts,

Wait for Kadwa to tell you what to take
next- he is in charge of your case.
 
simone717 8 years ago
Dear Simone,
Do you know Kadwa? Can you contact him for me? I've been waiting for quite a long time and even re-posted my post but haven't gotten any answers.

As arg nit is not helping you may see how Gelsemium affects. The remedy should be taken in the way explained earlier.
 
kadwa 8 years ago
dear kadwa,
so it'll be 2 pellets dissolved under my tongue, morning and night for 2 days?
 
kingofhearts 8 years ago
Yes.
 
kadwa 8 years ago
dear kadwa,
am i supposed to take it on an empty stomach? or right after i eat?
 
kingofhearts 8 years ago
There should be a gap of at least 30 minutes between the remedy and meals. The remedy may be taken before or after meals.
 
kadwa 8 years ago
dear kadwa,
i've followed the directions for the gelsemium for 2 days and waited over ten days and still have no change. please advise on what to do.
 
kingofhearts 8 years ago
Please see how the remedies Nux Vomica 200, Carbo Veg 200, Kali Carb 200, Lycopodium 200 affect you. Please take the remedies one by one as earlier and wait for 7-10 days for the response from each remedy before moving to the next remedy.
