This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I could take this case on, but a completely different questionnaire would have to be used to give a better quality of information - if you are willing to do that.

It would mean more effort on your part, but I would endeavour to find one remedy to solve the problem if possible.

In homoeopathy, prescription is based on precise details of various symptoms from which you suffer. To tell or write to a homoeopathic physician 'I have a headache ', ' an eruption ' or “a cough” would not be enough. If you inform him 'I have headache with sharp shooting pains in the left side of the head and temple, these pains always come on when the slightest cold air strikes the head. I feel better by pressing the head very hard.” Then only you have given all the information required for making a good homoeopathic prescription. The success of the prescription depends; largely on how detailed your description of the symptoms is.
We require the following details about your symptoms.

LOCATION: Please give the exact location of sensation, pain or eruption. Also describe where the pain or sensation spreads.

SENSATION: Express the type of sensation or the pain that you get in your own words however simple or funny it may seem. You may have a sensation that a mouse is crawling or the heart was grasped by an iron hand or you may have a pain that is cutting, burning jerking, pressing. Express the sensation or pain as it feels to you. Try to explain the whole sensation in the exact way it is happening and not just the word. We need to understand the whole process of the sensation as it is happening to you.


Many factors are likely to influence your complaint. Some factors may intensify it and some factors may relieve the trouble. A detailed list of the factors is given at the end. Please refer it while describing each of your troubles and indicate which factors make the complaint better or worse.

DISCHARGES: You may have a discharge from nose, ears, mouth, eyes, ulcers, fistula, eruptions on skin, private parts, etc. Please describe your discharge in detail including colour, consistency, appearance, odour etc.

1] Your Complaint:

(Use your own words as far as possible, but if you have recognized or diagnosed the condition, give this information also.) By answering as many of these questions as fully as possible, you are helping me to understand what your body and unconscious mind is conveying. This can help me find a remedy for you.)
• What is your complaint?
• When did the complaint begin?
• Where is it located?
• What sort of sensations (and emotions) do you associate with it?

• Does anything make it better or worse?
• How does it bother you? How is it coming in way of your day-to-day life?
• How does it feel like to have this/these problem/s?
• What is the effect of this/these problem/s on you?
• Did any event happen which caused the complaint? Describe the emotion associated with it.
• What are the other symptoms started with it, esp. mental and physical symptoms, which are not directly related to the main complaint.

I am not really comfortable describing all the details required by your questionaire. It borderlines very personal information which I feel is not completely suitable for internet based forums. I have received help from Dr Kadwa and Joe DeLiveria earlier with the information that I have already provided.

I would sincerely if request someone who can work with the original questionnaire that I have posted.

As you wish. I understand that proper homoeopathic case-taking done on a public forum like this can be difficult for some patients. I certainly understand the desire for privacy and confidentiality of my own clients in clinic. However, it is difficult for cure to be achieved without a full case. From the perspective of a homoeopath, the information you have given may not be enough to permanently cure you.

I spend around 2 hours with a patient in the initial consultation, so these questionnaires are designed to capture the kind of information that comes out in a long session like that. The amount and quality of information gathered directly affects the success of the prescription.

You are welcome to choose whomever you like to treat you however. You can either email me your answers to keep those answers out of public view, or you can choose to work with someone else.
