How was the CIE outcome? Did you do well in the exam? Why were you so anxious about the results?

Tell me something about your personality, likes and dislikes, fears etc. before you had this problem.

How do your friends find you as a person?

Did you have scanty periods right from the start?

What kind of weather do you generally prefer?

Do you like winter or summer in general?

What else was happening in your life in the last 6 to 8 months?
 
rishimba 6 years ago
well my cie result was fine. i wanted 5 As so that i could get a scholarship for my alevels. i got 4 As. so i was one A short to get a scholarship. i really needed a scholarship as my financial conditions were really worse after my dad got paralyzed. But still i managed to do my alevels, and now i need atleast 3 As in my alevels so that i could get a scholarship next year. it stressed me out alot. since my life depended on this result pretty much.
my personality? well i was so good at everything. studies, sports, debates everything i did i won. but then my dad started having some problems in his business and i was told that maybe i wont be able to studyy anymore. this was 5 years back. then my mom was diagnosed with diabetes. and after that my dad got paralyzed. then my grandmother died. live is been pretty tough after that since we were living in our grandparents house after her death we were told that the house will be sold and now we have no where else to go.
i used to have tons of friends before my dad got paralyzed, but after that i became less social and now i have just two close friends. i think they find me fine. like not upto their standards as they are rich and everything.
no i didn't. i never experienced scanty periods, in august when my result was about to come i was well ahead of my date. so i went to my homeopathic doctor and he gave me some medicine then it was fine. but then next month my period was regular but it was really scanty. like just a few drops. and that's how it was until this month. this month my period was normal. the flow was normal but the color is really light.
i prefer a normal weather. not cold and not hot. like it's now. in march and feb.
i used to love winters. i dont have any reason. but now? after this year when most of my hair fell in the winters i hate it. :(
 
bahar241551 6 years ago
Can you please explain what you meant by ' in august when my result was about to come i was well ahead of my date. so i went to my homeopathic doctor and he gave me some medicine then it was fine.'

Questions:

- When you said you were well ahead of your date, do you mean you had crossed the expected date and you didn't have your periods then?

-I understand your homeopath gave you one dose and after that you had the flow the same month. Please confirm.

-Your period got scanty from the next month.

Why did you go to the homeopath? Just because you has crossed the expected date and the flow didn't begin?

Then he gave you a remedy which made the periods scanty from the next month?

Please confirm and let me understand the background of your problems.
 
rishimba 6 years ago
yes i crossed the expected date, so i went to him. after taking the medicine i had my regular period just two days after that. but from the next month after that my period got scanty. it was regular but less than the normal flow.
 
bahar241551 6 years ago
bahar, I am not able to know exactly why did your flow become scanty. Was it the remedy or something else responsible for the change in your hormonal make-up?

Your hair-loss is connected to the hormonal changes so cannot be treated in isolation.

Tell me something about your personality...your likes and dislikes, fears and dreams etc.

You said you are worse at night. Tell me what exactly do you feel at night. You said you have disturbed sleep these days. Tell me what nightmares are you having that disturb the sleep.

I have something in mind but just want to make sure it will work because I am not able to erect a similimmum at present.

I need your candid replies about your personality. Detailed the better.
 
rishimba 6 years ago
i had my period yesterday and today is the second day. my period wasn't scanty anymore. it's normal now. but the color is very light.
i want to be a doctor. im quiet most of the time and now fear meeting new people. i don't like talking to most of the new children at my collage. though i used to be really friendly and social before.
i dont know how to explain my feelings. it was something really weird. i just want to cry. and feel like nothing is right. and my head starts to spin. i didn't have any nightmares. it felt like my brain kept thinking about the future, like will i be able to have kids? or will i be able to get into a good medical college and all this thinking was going inside my head while i was sleep. it was like im sleeping yet my brain isn't relaxing.
i just went to test my thyroid function. i think that's the reason why i am feeling this way. blood TSH and free T3. also i experimented with the thyroidium 200 like i said before i took that for two weeks, that means 4 doses. and i suppose that made my periods normal again? im not taking it anymore. so please tell me if you think my thyroid is at risk?
 
bahar241551 6 years ago
also after i wash my hair this white powdery thing keeps coming in my nails when i scratch my head. also i have this burning sensation in the top left side of my scalp and thats the place from where im losing most of my hair and i can now see my scalp. please help.. :(
 
bahar241551 6 years ago
Hope this will help you.

Take SEPIA OFFICINALIS 200C two doses on a single day morning empty stomach at half hour interval.

Do not take any other remedy for the next 7 days and tell me if the itch and burning sensation got better.

Also, observe your mental state and report.
 
rishimba 6 years ago
thankyou for reply. just tell me if i have a thyroid problem cause im really worried about that.
 
bahar241551 6 years ago
and i'll try the medicine as soon as i buy it.
 
bahar241551 6 years ago
Why do you think you have a thyroid problem?

Do you have any symptoms because of which you have come to this conclusion?

Why did you take Thyroidinum? Did any homeopath ask you to take the remedy.

Give me all symptoms that you think are related to thyroid affection and then I will infer if you had any thyroid problem.
 
rishimba 6 years ago
because my hair started to fall, and it never really did. and they are so dry and this white powdery stuff is coming out of it. no nobody gave me the medicine. i just tried it myself after searching the internet for it. i have trouble concentrating on my studies now.

bahar241551 6 years ago
also i became really depressed. and now my head hurts too.
 
bahar241551 6 years ago
i was able to get my hands on sepia 30. is it the same thing as the medicine you mentioned? also do i have to take this medicine only one day? or for 7 days twice with 30 mins interval between each dose?
[message edited by bahar241551 on Wed, 26 Mar 2014 14:21:12 GMT]
 
bahar241551 6 years ago
I suggested to go for SEPIA 200C two doses only on a single day. The doses shall be 1/2 hour apart.

Now that you have bought 30C potency, you can try it the same way. If you get any changes in you in the next few days, its fine and you should take it once a few days, whenever you see the symptoms returning.

Otherwise, you have to buy SEPIA 200C which is a little higher potency of the same remedy.
 
rishimba 6 years ago
okay thankyou so much for your time and patience. i'll start off with sepia and let you know about it. btw you didn't say anything about my thyroid. i'll get the results today for tsh and free t3 and tell let you know.
 
bahar241551 6 years ago
At this stage and with what you have stated, I am not able to make a comment if you had thyroid problem. In my opinion, you shouldn't have made any assumptions yourself.

You could have gone to a good endocrinologist and requested him to give you his opinion.
 
rishimba 6 years ago
my tsh is 1.254 and my t3 is 2.27.
so now do you think i have a thyroid problem?
 
bahar241551 6 years ago
Your TSH results are fine but T3 is just on the edge. You may or may not be having hypothyroidism. But I will not comment here. Again I am telling you not to jump into conclusions. Visit an endocrinologist and let him interpret the results.
 
rishimba 6 years ago
im also having this weird neck pain now. it's not very severe. it's mild. like a burning sensation in my throat.
