The ABC Homeopathy Forum

cannot resolve miasm issues, constitutional questions

Hi,
I have posted on here a few times before and after seeing yet another homeopath my case is yet to be resolved. I have highs and lows, emotionally and with my skin and facial swelling. When a remedy helps with facial swelling it is short lived (except Calc Carb and Merc sol to some degree). I have total body swelling, low thyroid (low T3) but prefer cold. In fact cold makes simptoms better. Everything seemed to be going right with this new homeopath until the Calc carb, which appeared to be a magic pill for my feelings of depression and lethargy, began to give me chronic ashtma symptoms. The homeopath suggested that my immune system had been boosted markedly and so the health picture was unfolding. So on and on remedies were tried for difficult breathing on ascending stairs. Facial swelling is cheeks sides of face and below jaw. There have been periods where there was marked fluid accumulation in forehead and temples with intense acne rosacea on left temple. It is unrelated to food allergies and does seem to corrolate with dpression. Stimulants help it on occasion. Since taking Calc carb it seems my warts on the backs of thumbs has worsened, breasts have grown two full cup sizes and my response to other homeopathics has become seldom fruitful. I'd love to be assisted as I feel that my ase is too complex for the homeopathic talent I hav access to.
Oh, and a history of infection, birth control, immunizations, thyroid meds, bioidentical hormone creams daily for two years which made me without progesterone (yet still menstruating) and completely estrogen dominant.

1. Age,sex,weight,body and face appearance, country, occupation.
ANS.
30yrd old, female, 145-155, latent menstruation/development (27 yrs old) became very very curvy, Puffy face and body, swollen breast tissue, thick bloated abdomen that changes drastically from heat, drinks, eating. From USA, artist(painter)

2. Main complaints and other associated troubles.
a)Where is the trouble; The exact locality of the complaint like hands,legs etc; duration of trouble.
ANS.
Bloated face, swollen around jaw, in front of ears around eyes and cheeks. Has been happening since college and disordered eating habits. Swells more with intense emotion and heat/warmth.
Easily gain weight. Severe acne, acne rosacea pustules( markedly on left jaw, cheekbone up to temple and warts of thumbs.
Hands particularly well and tight from heat, but overall body also reactive by swelling in heat or physical exertion.
Tired(depressed)/anxiety/feeling of being unworthy of friends or relationships (excluding immediate family)
Severe asthma on ascending stairs, but fine walking on flat ground endlessly. (started a year ago when beginning homeopathics but became quite acute in the past 2 months).

b)What exactly do you feel, Sensation as pain, how pain feels or burn etc.
ANS.
Searing burning pain on right side of mid spine radiates over to base of scapula sharp tugs on muscles of lower right side of spine.


c)What are the factors that causes this trouble according to you.
ANS.

I believe my history of anorexia to relieve bloating and a feeling of weight and puffiness as a teenager has some significance. I took birth control in college to get my initial period (which didn't come until taking the pituitary herb Chaste tree at 27), and then my subsequent use of thyroid meds (which improved nothing and worsened facial swelling) and progesterone cream(which made me much sicker, more tired and created a mess of acne I have yet to resolve.

d)Condition under which the complaint is reduced or you feel better like, cold or hot application,cold or hot weather,position as standing,walking,rest etc.
ANS.
I always feel better in cold. Better when walking briskly, walk very fast even in a casual state. Laying on stomach.

e)Condition under which the complaint is increased like,cold or hot application,cold or hot weather,position as standing,walking,rest etc.
ANS.
Heat makes me sweat on neck, chest, feet and everything swells. always wear long sleeves due to extreme self consciousness about arm swelling and flabbiness. Worse with hot food, beverages, steam from cooking, heat of oven, sitting and eating, sitting.

f)Any other complaint any where in the body.
ANS.

Vaginal tightness upon first pap smear attempt at 26 (still had not yet menstruated)
Osteoporosis diagnosed at 17yrs old

h)Treatment method adopted and its result.
ANS.

I have tried natural medicine but found that when I stopped the bioidntical prog cream I no longer produced my own Progesterone. I went completely homeopathic two years ago and since have seen periods where all symptoms listed improved slightly for a brief time but didn't stick or the cure was incomplete and the next remedy could not be chosen accurately.

OK will get Lachesis and begin your dosing instructions.
 
brook29 4 years ago
Hi Homeo,
I accidentally came into contact with a leaky bottle of essential oil as i was cleaning today. I already took my doses of Lachesis and was concerned about this interrupting the process. The oil was called Copaiba.
I'm so dissappointed and am hoping this didn't ruin the treatment.
 
brook29 4 years ago
It won't. Homoeopathic medicines cannot be interfered with in such a way once they have been taken.

homeo.mzp 4 years ago
Hi Homeo,
I waited as long as I could before posting but won't make it to the 15 days.
I'm reacting very terribly to the Lachesis. I probably should have just one dose or maybe two but the side effects are really bad. I'm exhausted, my acne is horribly red inflamed and has now spread to the right side and I fear will be equally bad. It is the type of acne that fills quickly and becomes cystic. The rash/petiicia on my chest is inflamed and I'm terribly bloated around the abdomen.
I got my period and I'm crying constantly. I'm angry hate everyone/everything and am constipated. I am concerned about scarring from this type of acne and am fearful this has started something that will continue to worsen. What should I do?
 
brook29 4 years ago
dnt worry i think it is A Similar Aggravation – Your Symptoms First Worsen and Then Improve, it intensified your symptoms before triggering a healing response.

dnt be scared nothing will worsen keep patience.

thanks...
 
homeo.mzp 4 years ago
OK thanks.
 
brook29 4 years ago
I'm wondering why I can't stop the depression. I feel sad, breaking out in sweats in bed, swelling of legs very bad, matks from acne are very deep red purple and not healing well.
I'm gaining a marked amount of weight around the midsection so as none of my pants fit.
I know my slow thryoid contributes to my depression but this seems to making me feel more hypothyroid and more depressed. My hair falls out, face puffs when stressed, skin is wrinkled and unhealthy looking etc. I'm wondering how any of these symptoms are going to get resolved.
 
brook29 4 years ago
Also I'm noticing that I cannot sit still and am incredibly restless. Must be moving something even at rest lying in bed to feel comforted.
 
brook29 4 years ago
Is the condition little improved as was on
12 dec 2014 ??

have confidence in yourself and faith in god, if this remedy will not work i will examine again and prescribe another, dont be depressed

thanks...
 
homeo.mzp 4 years ago
Yes llittle improvement. In fact worsenng and new symptoms that I have had at bad periods of illness in past.

Such as a piercing painradiating from back just below ribcage on right side causing extreme fatigue and huncthing from cramping This pain radiates from back to front on right side and moves up spine to just under right scapula. I have had this pain before on several occassions. It occurred during periods of severe chronic fatigue, while on Armour thyroid medication and while on Prog. cream. Is aggravated by prolonged standing still or sitting still.
Also, sweating profusly, cracks have returned to corners of mouth, acne has improved but the marks are unusually purple in color. Weakness in lower back. Swollen legs and area around the knees. Craving for carbs and sweets worse and apetite for meat and protein very little. Abdomen sore, swollen puffy. Cheekbones and temples collect fluid, swelling, swelling under jaw. Flushing and facial/body swelling worse during stress and emotions. Skin on face rough and worn. Stretched from swelling, creases left when swelling recedesslightly. Mood swings pronounced from extreme releif to extreme hopelessness.

I trust your judgement and want to keep you up to date on all changes.

Thanks
 
brook29 4 years ago
you told "new symptoms that I have had at bad periods of illness in past are coming"

Return of Old Symptoms – Your Existing Symptoms Improve but in the Process, Old Symptoms From the Past Return for a Short Period.

What it means

The remedy was correct and you are experiencing a positive phenomenon known as “return of old symptoms” – deep healing is taking place.

we shall see how much this remedy cures you.

thanks...
 
homeo.mzp 4 years ago
So additional remedies will be needed to cause improvement as I don't see how this can turn around for the better ina week.I'm having extreme negative thyroid reactions. Pressure behind the eyes and swelling of the tissue around eyes. Pressure in head causing dizziness and disorientation and intense swelling of legs and hands.
Also had very pale yellow stool.
 
brook29 4 years ago
currently i can antidote LACHESIS but that will all about disturb the curing process,

i think that what you are getting are old symptoms only,

how is your menses, sleep and mental freshness, scanty urine,

dnt worry after 15 days i will examine and if needed will reduce the potency to 6c


thanks..
 
homeo.mzp 4 years ago
I stated in original answers that I urinate excessively not scanty. Large amounts, pale, hi creatinie in urine not blood creatinine.

Waking up very early in morning stressed out.
Menses over but intense cramping and numbness alternating in lower abdomen. Cramping when sitting/standing, numbnes when laying down.
Still find laying on stomach or side most comfortable over standing or sitting still. Walking is best.
Still feel anxious worried. Highly a
lergic to food and environment . hives on wrist breakouts from foods, pigmentation from foods. Facial swelling on intense emotions. Abdominal swellin cramping intense.

I will wait until the end of day 15 to see what happens. My only concern is that I don't move backwards in progress as I cannot afford to take off work ot rely on anyone anymore due to my illness.
 
brook29 4 years ago
IS the symptoms have shown little improvement than that at time of start aggravation ??
 
homeo.mzp 4 years ago
The only thing that has inproved is ths arring seems to be peeling as it heals. But ohter than that. no imporvement. In fact symptoms I have not experienced and Weight gain around mid section, lower body temp, reacting to heat more, stinging in spine and right scapula. facial swelling still remains. Much worse if I SKIP a small daily dose of very dark chocolate.
Overall weight gain. Severe cramping in lower abdomen so much so I can't stand straight up. End up hunched with stinging in back.
 
brook29 4 years ago
from how many years, you are suffering from the thyroid issues.
 
homeo.mzp 4 years ago
At least 15 years. It's hard to say because I had imfections which made me tired. But my thyroid T3 levels have always been low T4 has been normal and TSH has been all over but never higher than 14. Never high thyroid antibodies. I began gaining weight substantially after thyroid meds and prog. cream. swelling pf glands in face and abdomen being the most obvious symptoms which have continued even since being off these meds for more than 4 years.
 
brook29 4 years ago
I should add that when Armour thyroid meds failed to have an effect I was placed on iodine to boost T3 which caused what the doctor called parodoxical effects. It worsened my thyroid symptoms and so they took me off of it.

The burning in my spine has always been far worse while on thyroid meds as well. I don't know if this helps. Let me know any further info you need.
 
brook29 4 years ago
dnt worry i will try my best to resolve your chronic issues, keep patience.
 
homeo.mzp 4 years ago
OK thanks so much!
