I think I see some light now. you need Arsenic. I notice that you had nose bleed after several medicine including arsenic. did you have nose bleed prior to taking homeopathic treatment? arsenic is followed by thuja or medorrhinum in most cases. you may have to follow quickly so collect both in 200 potency before taking arsenic. also you will have to stop all other medicine including the ones for high BP. you cannot travel in two boats at the same time . however you need not worry as that will be taken care off by the remedy if chosen correctly. it is important that you measure your BP next day morning. if you decide to take the medicine take it at bed time
 
telescope 7 years ago
Respected telescppe.
It’s a better choice.
The nose bleeding, it’s an old symptom of mine. I had this symptom since I was young. Hot sun caused me this trouble. It disappeared about 30 years ago, mostly after I avoided being exposed under hot sun. It re-appeared for Calc car 200 when I repeated on July 11, 2010. And again for Lycopodium 200 taken on Nov. 30, 2011 and the bleeding stopped by Dec. 10, 2011. The symptom appeared again for Ars. Alb taken on June 8, 2013. together with a few other little pains and relieves.
My surprise is that, I can understand the Lycopodium, Thuja and Medorinum, most of my symptoms agree with these remedies, but none even close to Arsanicum album. I randomly selected this remedy for my allergic troubles. It responded well? I do not know how, and have no knowledge to understand this remedy.
Anyway, I will follow your suggestions. So far I was using remedies mostly by Boiron, This time, I am going to try Helios. It may take 2 to 3 weeks for me to get these remedies in from London. Please help me with dosage details.
Thank you and have a wonderful day.
Regards,
Samel

the reason i prescribed arsenicum album was that you had benefitted most from this remedy. when old symptoms come back after the administration of a remedy it means the choice of remedy was correct but in your case the nose bleed came back after three different remedies which is interesting.i could not find anything to suggest calcarea or lyco because both of them have severe acidity and lyco in addition has severe gas problem.ars is the acute of thuja and medorhhinum so it may be giving temporary relief only which we will know only after seeing its action. any way there is a rule of practice that we should not leave a remedy that was beneficial without trying it at least once in a higher potency. i have not gone higher because you had taken the remedy only a few times and that too with big intervals. it is not necessary to change brand so long as what you are using is from a reputed compamy. take the medicine 4or 5 pellets or if in liquid form 1 or 2 drops dissolved in half a cup of water preferably at night. you are to take one dose only.
 
telescope 7 years ago
Respected telescope, I totally agree with you, never meant to dispute your suggestions. My homeopathic knowledge is only academic and keep it as my hobby. I test it on me following suggestions made by experience practitioners one like you. I am prepared to follow fully your suggestions until we accomplish our goal, cure my chronic troubles.
I already have placed my order from Helios for Arsanicum and Thuja. I will take one dose of Ars alb as suggested (I like the wet dose method)at bed time and will update you the outcome time to time.
Thank you for your time and concern. Have a wonderful day.
Regards,
Samel
 
Samel 7 years ago
Respected telescope, Hope that you are fine.
This is an update for your consideration.
I took Arsenicum album 200C on Saturday, 17th, at bedtime as suggested. I stopped taking my regular BP medicine.
My BP on Saturday morning was 114/77, nextday, Sunday morning it was 128/85 (no medicine taken) Next day, Monday morning
it was 140/90 and kept going up and up day by day and I went back to my BP medicine. My BP now is normal as before.
On Wednesday, 4th day after Ars. alb there was a light headache between 3am and 4am was noticed. The Headache slowly
disappeared. The same day morning between 8am and 12.30PM a nasal discharge was experienced, The discharge was
white like elastic string, not heavy. The same day at 8.30pm, when I was trying to clear my nose I got a few yellowey
flakes from my nose. On 22nd my nostrills got blocked around mid-night. The blockage was heavy, I could not breath through
my nose, I ended up applying Vicks around my nose and neck. Thereater no reaction of the remedy was noticed. The Vicks
may have hindered the progress of the remedy. I can repeat the Ars. alb if you think that may help or go to the next step.
I have Thuja 200C ready. I am waiting for your further suggestion.
Thank you for your time.
Regards,
Samel

ok. take only one dose thuja 200 and observe your bp again.
 
telescope 7 years ago
I will do and update outcome.
Thank you and have a wonderful day.

Samel.
 
Samel 7 years ago
Respected telescope, Hope that you are doing well.
As per your suggestion, Thuja 200C one dose was taken on January 28 9pm.
My BP reading on that day was 127/83/77
2nd day - 130/90/81
3rd day - 130/90/82
4th day - 131/90/89 and the reading is almost the same up to date. (I am on prescription medicine)
On Saturday 31, 3rd day after Thuja, an unusual bowel activity was noticed. I had a bowel at 9.30am, dark brown, little higher in volume and bad smell.
The same day at 1pm, I had a running nose, white discharge like elastic string, lasted for a few hours.
These are the symptoms that were noticed so far.
Since Thuja fits most of my symptoms, I was expecting a positive outcome from this remedy. I am thinking of giving more time for this remedy to work. Hope that you will agree with me.
Your advice is very much appreciated.
Thank you.
 
Samel 7 years ago
yes you should allow sufficient time for the medicine to do its work
 
telescope 7 years ago
I will do.
Thank you.
 
Samel 7 years ago
Respected telescope, Hope that your are doing well.
It's over one month waited for Thuja, noticed nothing much to date. All my symptoms stay the same except the followings:
On 18th February, that's 20 days after Thuja, a sensation of burning on my left face and sole was noticed at 3am, and this sensation continued on left face only for a few days at bed time. Following it a boiling (pimple) appeared on the lower back of my ear (pinna). disappeared in 4 days. An another boiling appeared in the middle of pinna two days ago. It's painful to touch.
It looks like my arthritis is taking place, pain at the first step on right sole, in the mornings, cannot sleep on either side, pain on arm sockets, both side, cannot sleep on back either, nose get blocked, Dry mouth and nose at night during winter, for dry air. Dry mouth is very bad, need to moister every hour. no mucus from nose, looks like inside swelling, disappears in the morning.
Please take took and suggest a remedy.
Thank you,
Regards
Samel.

please see if there is any change in the bones of the places that pain. you can do that by feeling with your fingers.
 
telescope 7 years ago
The you for immediate response.
I have pain on my right sole, pains upon first 2 or 3 steps in the mornings.
Also have swelling angle in evenings. I feel no changes in these regions. This is an old trouble. I use an extra cushion on my shoes to minimize the pain, I can't walk bare foot. I also have pain on my finger joints of both hands, except middle fingers. The joints have swelling. The ligaments of those joints have dried out, causing pain. I used to message every day to control the pain. I tried Rhus tox. a couple of years age with no luck.
My nose trouble also a chorionic problem. I haven't had a single night that I slept without a discomfort. It's worse during winter reasons. As I mentioned before, there is no discharge or mucus of any sort, only a blockage at night. I checked this out with a ENT surgeon who told me that I have a bent bone in my nose that he wanted to perform a surgery, to cut the curved bone and straight it out. I have no idea how my nose bone curved. I do not wanted to go for a surgery to correct it. I only wanted to breath through my nose without any problem. I noticed that, when I attempt to sleep on my back, something like a shutter come down and block the passage. I am not comfortable breathing through my mouth, I can't do it. I rather wake up and walk a little or get on my Treadmill for a while that will clear the trouble.
For your attention, I hear (already noted on my questionnaire) a noise from my right ear, started over 3 years ago never stopped.
Anyway, Take it easy,
Thank you again.
Regards,
Samel.

if you have Calcarea Carb in any potency take one dose and see how it affects now.also if possible measure bp before taking bp medicine.
 
telescope 7 years ago
Thank you telescope,
Calc. carb is one of the right remedies for my symptoms. I tried this remedy several times in the past, It gave me same relief.
April 30, 2010 - 30C, 3 doses one day only - no reaction noticed
June 06, 2010 - 200C 1 dose only - Some effect on nose and bowel noticed, loose motion and a thick mucus was thrown from nose - happened one day only and repeated on July 11, 2010 - After repetition, my nose stared bleeding when blowing the bleeding lasted for three days. On the 4th day I felt a light headache in the afternoon. And I tried it again one dose on January 01, 2011 - nothing noticed.
And again on February 18, 2011 - 30C, 3x a day for 3 days, after this dose my nose troubles got better compared to the previous year. On October 29, 2011 - 1M one dose - no effect.
November 06, 2011 1M repeated - no effect. Again April 28, 2014 - 200C one dose - no effect.
This is my past experience with Calc. carb.
I can still try Calc carb if you think worth trying again.
Please let me know.
Thank you again.
Regards,
Samel
