Menopause Extreme Dryness & BurningMy 70 year old mother in law has been experiencing extreme internal vaginal pain and burning for over 2 years along with frequent urination. She has poor quality of live as she does not want to do anywhere in case she needs to use toilet and constant burning pain is wearing her down. She has been to numerous doctors and they have all said it is dryness due to menopause, she has used various hormonal creams etc with no relief. Her doctor has said that there is no other conventional medicines/creams left to try. She is very depressed at the minute and no love for life, her husband died earlier this year.. She has long history of black moods going back over 20 years when her husband suffered from alcoholism, she dwells on that time and blames the stress from then for her health problems, she had very early menopause around that time and has had panic attacks since.
She also suffers from dry eyes and back pain and sleeps only 2/3 hours each night so is worn out during the day. She is a very nervous person who doesn't like to go new places or meet new people as she has panic attacks in these situations.
From this information do you think Nat Mur or Staphysagria would be suitable or would another remedy be more helpful? Please recommend dosage etc as we do not have a homeopath anywhere near our home and she would not travel a distance.
We are really worried about her as her life is terrible now and she has said she cannot continue like this. Thank you.
