Hello.
I would love to help you with your son. Have had some similar issues with positive outcomes.
It will be helpful if you could fill out this checklist. Easier to get an idea what medication that may be relevant. I think I already see some familiar symptoms from what you write.

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?

6. Which time of the day you are worst?

7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same? Example- time, temperature, pressure, rubbing, washing, eating, tight clothing etc.


8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)?

9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?

10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.

- How do you feel before or during a thunderstorm?

- Do you like being consoled during your tough times?
- Are you sensitive to external stimuli like smell, noise, light etc?

- Do you have any typical habit or gesture like nail biting, causeless
Weeping, talking to one self etc?

- How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your husband / wife?

11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly?


12. What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions?

13. How is your thirst: Less, Normal or Excessive?

14. How is your hunger: Less, Normal or Excessive?

15. Is there any kind of food which your body can’t stand?

16. Is your sweat normal or less or more? Where does it sweat more: Head, Trunk or Limbs?

Thanks for replying. Please find my answers inline:

an you remember when you discovered that something was not right?

at around one and a half years age when he was not talking at all and was not waving bye and was not pointing as well. we got the diagnosis done at 2 years age when we actually got to know that he had mild autism.


Ok, here is the list:

1. Describe your main suffering?

He has wrote speech and cannot make sentences on his own. He can only speak remembered sentences. He babbles a lot, irrelevant and out of context speech. He is academically doing good but cannot sit in the class as well.


2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body?

No physical suffering.

3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings?

No

4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst? Describe the sensation in your own words.


Can't exactly pin point because he is just a 5 year old child and cannot express himself. As a mother I can say that he is fidgety and restless.


5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?

No complications in delivery, normal with good birth weight. No problems at any time but when he turned one and half, we started noticing issues like lack of eye contact, no response to name.


6. Which time of the day you are worst?

In the evening he is more restless and babbles more.


7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same? Example- time, temperature, pressure, rubbing, washing, eating, tight clothing etc.

Foods like sugar make him hyper, presence of strangers or some people which meet not often, his babbling increases partially (20%) may be because of the excitement. He becomes more hyper.



8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)?

Presence of strangers, new place makes him a bit hyper.


9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?

No effect with weather.

10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.

Moody, likes to be organized, fastidious,

- How do you feel before or during a thunderstorm?

nothing

- Do you like being consoled during your tough times?

Yes, as a kid he likes to cuddled.

- Are you sensitive to external stimuli like smell, noise, light etc?

These days he does not like the harsh sounds of machines like drill machine, blender.


- Do you have any typical habit or gesture like nail biting, causeless
Weeping, talking to one self etc?

Obsession of looking at dish antenna only (no fans or any other things). He picks up circular things like lids, bottle caps and holds them up high with his hands and sees them from different angles.

Similar obsession at 3 years of age with bikes (may be with the tyres) but after a while it vanished and then after few months, he started looking at dish antennas. Would like to mention that we did not do any thing to stop him from looking at the bikes. It stopped automatically.


- How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your husband / wife?

Nothing noticeable

11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly?

Currently fear of dark from last 2 months. It was not there earlier.


12. What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions?

Pancakes, namkeen.


13. How is your thirst: Less, Normal or Excessive?

Normal

14. How is your hunger: Less, Normal or Excessive?

Normal but takes lot of time to eat. Doesn't like his hands to get dirty while eating.

15. Is there any kind of food which your body can’t stand?

He is on restricted diet - Gluten free, casein free and sugar free on consultation with the pediatrician.


16. Is your sweat normal or less or more? Where does it sweat more: Head, Trunk or Limbs?

sweat is normal. while sleeping, he sweats more on the upper lip. Earlier till 2 years of age, he used to sweat more on the head.


17. How is your bowel movement and stool type?

Normal


18. How well do you sleep? Do you have a particular posture of sleeping?

sound sleep. Nothing specific in posture but if I have to point out, then sleeping straight with knees apart and feet closed creating rhombus shape with legs.


19.

20. Do you have any strange, peculiar or unusual symptom or feelings? How are you different from others?


21. What medications have been taken earlier by you to treat the diseases and do you have any particular symptom surfacing after the medication?

we are giving following supplements:

Calcium

Multivitamin

Mb12 (oral)

DMG

Folinic acid

Omega 3

Vitamin E

Vitamin C

Zinc


We also started homeopathic treatment about 6 months back. The practitioner gave him some medicine because of which he became very hyper so we have to stop that treatment with no results.




22. What major diseases are running in your family?

hypertension, diabetes, arthiritis

A cousin's son in my husband's family (similar age of my son) has some kind of learning difficulty. We are not sure of the actual problem.

23. Describe, how do you look like? Describe your overall appearance.

Lean, tall, fair

Hello again and thank you for your answers.

I'm working on setting up an anamnese of your son, and think I see what medication he needs. But to be sure, here are some control issues.

1. When you say: Fear of the dark, it is general or only when he goes to bed?

2. Restless. Is it a mental restlessness, or are we talking about restless arms and legs?

3. Could this have started after the vaccine or any antibiotics cure?

4. Does he tend to be angry, even hitting and kicking?

Just want to mention that some studies show that vitamin B6 and Magnesium has a positive effect in many autistic children.

Ok, thats it for now.:)
Hope to hear from you soon.

One more thing, what homeopathic medicine he got last time?

Parakletos.

1. When you say: Fear of the dark, it is general or only when he goes to bed?
It is general. For eg: In the evening the bathroom is dark he want a company to go along with.
With elder along with he will switch on light and use toilet on his own.


2. Restless. Is it a mental restlessness, or are we talking about restless arms and legs?
It is mental restlessness because he gets fidgty and pickups anything around him and start fiddling/playing with it. No flapping ( or rare ) of hands.

3. Could this have started after the vaccine or any antibiotics cure?
We are not sure on this. He had amoxycylin and we noticed few features of Autism or delay in him but
we do feel they were there even before Amoxycilin

4. Does he tend to be angry, even hitting and kicking?
He does get upset or call it angry but No he is not aggressive. No hitting or kicking in his behaviour.
No throwing of objects.

Dear mother.

After a careful review of your son's symptoms, I believe that the correct homeopathic remedy is Stramonium. I believe you should try this medication. Start with Potence 30C.

If you buy the pills, you can give him 3 of these. It is easiest for you to obtain the liquid. You can then take 3-5 drops in some water and let him drink this. But you can also leave pills lying in a little water until dissolved, stir and drink.
Always give homeopathy at least half an hour before or after food, for example, in the morning, before breakfast.
Remember no caffeine, for example coke.

Sincerely; R.Flemming

Forgot to mention that on 16/9/2012 i.e. 3 days back, we started giving him Stramonium 10M on the behest of another practitioner. Have already given him 3 doses every day in the evening.

Please let us know how to proceed. Sorry for the inconvenience.
 
tssoni 8 years ago
10M!?
What you are saying is that the homeopath gave your son 10M. Started treatment with this potence?
If this is correct, you should immediately find another homeopath.
What was the reaction of your son, after taking this medicine?

Or could it have been LM potence?
 
Parakletos 8 years ago
It is 10M only, started with this only. Have never used LM potence.
On 16th my son was calm since morning (not sure what was the reason because he is rarely that calm). We gave the dose in evening. He was calm next day (17th) as well. We gave another dose in the evening. On 18th we started noticing him getting hyper, he was back to his usual level of babbling. Gave dose again. On 19th i.e. today he is hyper and babbling more and it is continuing. Just to let you know, we also gave him biochemic combination 1 (cal-phos, fe-phos, Nat-mur, K-phos) single dose which we give him on and off because he is anaemic. We also gave him five-phos biochemic combination single dose. Today we gave him Stramonium 30 also after hearing from you.

Additionally, I would like to share that we got his blood test, urine test and stool test done 4 months back. He was anaemic (has pale skin, hemoglobin 11.8) and had oxalates in his urine.

Dear members,

In autism patients especially when they are taking too much NONSENSE WITH HIGH PITCH,

1 dose/30 days.

The reason we do not give such a high potence of young children, especially children with such disorders may not explain himself. Are they aggrevations that may arise. It is totally unnecessary to take such chances with young children!!
No one says it will not work with the 10M, but it is quite possible to take it gradually.
It is allowed to use your head!
