Few clarification..

1. You said in your opening post that the problem started all of a sudden one morning with intense scalp pain.

Can you tell me what was happening in your life then?

Were you just stressed or were you on steroids and other allopathic medication or were you recovering from kidney stone operation those days?

I want to know exactly, what triggered the first attack.

2. Leave your scalp condition, tell me when do you feel better...in warm or cool environments?

3. Can you describe your GERD related sufferings with all modalities, sensations and locations.

4. Can you describe your Graves related sufferings with all modalities, sensations and locations?

5.Describe your personality and how do your friends find you as a person? What opinion does your hubby carry about you regarding your personality?

6. During this homeopathic treatment, you will have to stop all other medicines. Do you think you will be able to do it for a few months?

Are you taking any medicine on a regular basis that you CANNOT stop?

7. Do you think your scalp problem could be a side effect of some allopathic drug you took earlier?

1. You said in your opening post that the problem started all of a sudden one morning with intense scalp pain.

Can you tell me what was happening in your life then?

I was extremely stressed due to my work related situation and i had this kidney stone removal operation 3 months ago, but I had recovered from the operation in a week , so I was completely fine health wise , except my GERD problem now and then.

Were you just stressed or were you on steroids and other allopathic medication or were you recovering from kidney stone operation those days?

I was not on steroids or another medicine during that time, but I was eating all crap (junk food) that time , cooking was not possible at that time.

I want to know exactly, what triggered the first attack.
I am still not sure, may be stress, may be general anesthesia (given during surgery), or the food that I was eating.

2. Leave your scalp condition, tell me when do you feel better...in warm or cool environments?

I feel better in cool environments.

3. Can you describe your GERD related sufferings with all modalities, sensations and locations.

I get bloating , acid reflux after any heavy meals, or ready to eats . I am vegetarian and I eat home cooked food generally but I feel when I am alone not around my family which is the case mostly as i am living in U.S, these problems aggravate.

4. Can you describe your Graves related sufferings with all modalities, sensations and locations?
I don't have any symptoms now as my harmones are under control since i have started taking medications, but initially i used to have knee pains and heart palpitations.

5.Describe your personality and how do your friends find you as a person? What opinion does your hubby carry about you regarding your personality?
I was very socially and a happy person before this happened according to my friends also, full of hopes and cheerful but since it all happened I rarely even talk to my friends, I have gone in my shell.He feels I am fine, my hair looks fine and I am overreacting, but thats his personality he generally is ignorant about my health overall also, so this is expected out of him.

6. During this homeopathic treatment, you will have to stop all other medicines. Do you think you will be able to do it for a few months?

Are you taking any medicine on a regular basis that you CANNOT stop?

I am taking methimazole for graves that I would not be able to stop , all other supplements or medicines I can stop.

7. Do you think your scalp problem could be a side effect of some allopathic drug you took earlier?

May be I am not sure, it could be of the corticosteroid cream (hydrocortisone) or accutane that i took for my acne 2 years before because I kind of feel the same time of sensation (like itching and acne and redness) as I used to feel on my face when i had rosacea.

thanks so much for helping me out. :)

Also I feel it could be some kind of infection, because the dandruff i have it just dent go away, for a brief period of time for two months my head was dandruff free almost (i used candid tv shampoo) and my hair had stopped falling during that time and no itching, this was earlier this year. then the dandruff came back because i used to pick up on my scalp , then i used this shampoo again, but it doesn't help any longer !!!!! and i get this dandruff sticking to my scalp and few acne on scalp with terrible itching, whenever i pick on my scalp the hair starts coming out in handfuls!!!!

Try CARBO VEG 30C one dose a day in the morning empty stomach. Don't take any food or water one hour before or after the dose.

Continue the doses for some days till you see a change in the GERD symptoms. I feel, your digestion has to be set right first. Once your GERD is addressed, the hairfall will also stop.

Take the doses for a week maximum and then report to me the changes in the next 7 days.

If carbo veg doesn't produce any response, we will look for a constitutional remedy for you.
