1. Describe your main suffering?
I have anxiety problem for the last 5-6 years. I sweat a lot in the forehead when i am anxious. Palpipation, heat sensation in the head. I feel like passing Stools(especially when i watching the tensed cricket matches). I am married and never had an issue with my sexual life.Sometimes i have pain and burning sensation in the lower back after sex. I went for a vacation before couple of weeks and was with my close friends for a week. Those days we were frequently speaking sex stories of my friends.I never had a sexual relationship except my wife. For the last 10 days i am thinking most of the time about sex which makes me more feared and anxious.It disturbed my sleep. Very less sleep for the last one week. For the past one week i am observing my erection is not upto the mark. Sometimes it is 80% sometimes 50% sometimes less than that. I went to a near by homeopath and got a medicine Dr. Reckweg Vita C forte. He asked me to have it for a month with a dosage of 5ml 2 times a day for 15 days and 1 time after that till the medicine finishes. I started that medicine before 3 days and i could sense less anxiety, palpitation especially 60-70% reduction in the feeling of passing tools. But the no change seen in ED and my sleep. Till last i never had any ED problem. I am worried about this.

But this anxiety started back 5-6 years from now. One fineday, I had some giddiness, eyes were dark and slight pain in my left shoulders and left hand.I went to the GP and he took ECG it was normal. Then a X-ray of back and neck and conclued it was due to Cervical spodylosis. I was very much worries about CS and this anxiety problem. I used to always think about it. Started fearing i will get BP, Sugar etc. I can't see cricet matches, or to my female collegues, During presentation/some stage events i felt very anxious.I used to smoke and stopped it using cold turkey method.I quit smoking by sep 2009. During this time i started feeling back pain. But after series of tests and scans my ortho conclued it is just a weakness and no problems in my back. I was under treatement for 6 months.

I would also be considering Staphysagria based on some of the symptoms, although my feeling is more for Caladium.
Can you obtain Caladium 30c in liquid form (oral dosing liquid).
If you instead have pillules or pellets, you will need a small bottle and a dropper to make your own liquid dose. Mix water and alcohol into this small bottle to the ratio of 5:1. Dissolve 3 pillules/pellets into this bottle. All doses will be made from this bottle.
If you already have a liquid dose just start from step 1.
1. Hit the bottle 5 times firmly against the palm of the hand
2. Place 3 drops into 100mls of clean fresh water
3. Stir very thoroughly
4. Take 2 teaspoons out into the mouth and hold for 20 seconds, then swallow.
This is one dose and the same steps should be taken for any further doses, unless I ask you to change them in some way.
I would like you to take 3 doses, one dose each day (so 3 days maximum).
If any old symptoms reappear, or any current symptoms worsen, this is a GOOD sign in most cases. DO NOT SUPPRESS them with other kinds of medication unless you are in real danger (which is a highly unlikely reaction to a remedy).
However, if you are on regular medication it is also important that you do NOT stop taking this. Once it is determined the medicine has acted beneficially, we can look at reducing such medication if safe to do so.
