Irritable Bowel SyndromeHi
I am a 24 year old male.For the past four years i have been suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
It started in college when I had a lot of intoxicants going into my system and also stress.
Initially It was really bad and i was constipated for days altogether.
Went to allopathy and was prescribed some medicines.did not really take any religiously except the fiber.
That did not really help.
So then, started taking some ayurvedic powders(Triphala Churna) to help me evacuate and made dietary changes(ate only papaya for a while,reduced spicy food etc).
Did this for a couple of years and then for the past year on an SOS basis.
Eliminated wheat from my diet(only rice),that helped a bit.(None of this helped,Guess i just became used to living in such a state)
So I went to a homeopath becaus of hair loss problems(just on the peak,not noticeable yet) initially and was prescribed selenium for hair loss.
Took that for a couple of weeks and then spoke to him about IBS.
He asked me to stop taking selenium and concentrate on Stomach issues first.
So i was prescribed
Nux Vomica (thrice a day)
Carbo veg (ONCE AT NIGHT)
had diarrhea for the first couple of days,then normal evacuation for a couple.
Feel much more energetic.(no need to sleep after meals.
Also reduced heartburn,reduced belching and do not feel overwhelmingly full after meals.
Also have been having anything i want now.
Went again yesterday and had a detailed discussion regarding my symptoms etc.
I tend to start having a low grade fever around 4 in the afternoon which lasts till 8ish in the evening.(worse i think from smoking ,drinking etc)
Also I have been having Back,Neck pains etc due to diagnosed vitamin D deficiency.(Not so much of a problem now after VIT D supplements now )
So I was prescribed
Nux Vomica (Thrice a day)
Lycopodium (once at night)
Not sure about the potencies (Doctor does not divulge that much:))
Checked out Lycopodium and seems to be i have a classic lycopodium constitution
(mental makeup,way of living and sexual tendencies match)
Also might have damaged my body a bit from sexual overindulgence , nothing too major yet ,Just a minor decrease in libido)
If someone can look into my case and offer their help..
