Low grade recurrent fever dr kadwa please

This is for my sister.
Age - 34, height - 5.3', weight - 80 lbs, on parenteral nutrition for 2 yrs now, various undiagnosed GI issues,
latest diagnosis of fibromyalgia. She became home bound 8 years back from antidepressant withdrawal that was too fast
instead of a slow taper off.
She has tried most of all deep acting homeo medicines, thuja, natrum mure lycopodium, pulsatilla, lachesis,
plumbum met, etc etc and a lot of the acute care ones too with no real improvement in her overall picture of health.
Her body hurts all the time, nervous system is hypersensitized in fibromyalgia, pain signals are magnified manifolds.
There is noise sensitivity, everything in the body, all muscles, and joints hurt at the slightest emotional
or physical exertion. Antidepressants (SNRIs) are used in allopathy for fibromyalgia to increase serotonin and noepinepherine
but they have many side effects and she is not able to tolerate even low dose antidepressants after 8 years of being
sick. Anyhow, this post is mainly to request you to advise something for her low grade flu like recurrent fevers.

1. Low grade recurring fever - Comes every 20-28 days appx, follows exact same pattern. Starts around mid afternoon (98.6 - 99.2).
Does not go beyond 99.2. Stays like that for a week to 10 days, then slowly goes down to 98.6 for a few days, then comes back to normal,
her normal is around 98 or 98.2. Stays at normal for about a week or 10 days, and then the whole cycle starts again.
This has been going on for so long now that it has become a part of her life.
There are no other symptoms accopmanying the fever (no cold, no cough, no sore throat, no diarrhoea, no chills or sweats.
Besides the usual stuff that happens during a fever, feeling more weak than usual.
appetite loss, stomach symptoms that are always there become worse. She feels a lot of heat in the body too. Almost like an infection kind of
feeling. She can sense when the fever will start as she starts feeling the symptoms. Thirst stays the same. Stomach
burns like furnace.
We have tried all possible fever related remedies (Ferrum phos, baptisia, pyrogenium, aconite, gelsemium,eupatorium, arsenic.
. Nothing really helps. It runs its own course, then subsides.

Belladona helps a little. So, as soon as fever starts, she starts taking belladona.
However no medicine has stopped it from coming back.
recently, I read that china has the cyclical syndrome, meaning anything that has weakness associated with it
and comes back in cycles. So I gave her china 6 for few days. But fever is back again.
Her blood work is normal. She does have small intestinal bacterial overgrowth for which she was recommended
antibiotics that she has not taken yet because of a very very weak stomach. We have tried camphora, borax,
cina, arsenic. Her toungue is always coated white or yellow. She is on TPN ( parenteral nutrition), hardly able
to eat anything. Stomach feels very hard and bloated all the time as if it will burst. We are not sure what
is causing this fever. To me, it feels like some low grade infection that is not going away, yet not showing
up in tests. I even took her to a rheumatologist who did a complete blood work up. One marker was on the higher
borderline but she said it is not significant because other markers are normal. Is this fever coming from
the intestine, any worms, candida??? or just hypthalamus dysfunction, although it definitely brings
all the symptoms of infection. She feels flu like and the thermometer starts showing the rise.
Its almost like she can tell it has startes without even measuring it. She needs deep dental cleaning for a long time
now but we have not been able to go because of her health condition. I wonder if bacteria in her gums are causing
this fever.
We are completelty lost as this low grade recurrent fever is very disabling. She is anyways home bound, cannot eat
and on top of this, the fever totally disrupt any progress her body could make.
Recently, started giving her giloy satv but no improvement yet. I am thinking of taking her to a chinese
herbal doctor unless there is something in homeo that can fix these fevers. I was looking at nosodes for
common bacteria and viral infections. but it seems like they should be taken under the care of
an experienced homeopath.
Do you think I should give her China in some other potency? or as a wet dose?
How about belladona... I think belladona helps a little but has not exactly stopped the fevers from coming or
the intensity. She still touches 99.2. Or would you recommend a safe nosode?

Thanks. Will start this tomorrow.
The giloy satv she has been taking in Ayurvedic form is the same medicine you have recommended as homeopathic version. Will the homeopathic version be more effective?
maggarwa 8 years ago
I think so.

I checked everywhere, this medicine is not available in USA. And I could not find it on any online pharmacies either for order to USA.
Please advise.
