arthritis

Hello, I was seeking any advice on a remedy for arthritis. I am 32 years old, male. At age 22, I had lots of trouble with sciatica, had an MRI at age 23 and diagnosed with facet arthritis at L1-L2, L2-L3, L5-S1. Since then it seems to have spread. My current symptoms are as follows: 1: severe swelling in mid back area and loss of mobility.

2: occasional sciatic pain (not very often anymore)

3: occasional shooting pain from groin area to knee, on inner thigh. alternates from leg to leg, never both at once.

4: swelling and pain in knees, especially the right knee, comes and goes but pretty frequent lately. Knees pop on a regular basis, as in every time I stand up.

5: occasional shooting pain in the shoulders, feels like it's behind the shoulder blades, both sides of back but only one side at a time never both.

6: headaches and pain in the back of neck. Chiropractor did xrays few years back said there was several pinch points. He tried but couldn't help it. Headaches aren't severe, moderate at worst.

7: slight pain in ribs when mid back is swollen. This is just recently.

So, nsaids help with the pain, and it takes so much to help it, I'm done with them. I've gotten to 2400mg doses of ibuprofen on occasion and know it's not good for me.

Also, I started taking arnica 30x today and saw a slight improvement within an hour. Took 2x 3 pill dose today. When the Dr that sent me for my MRI mentioned surgery, I went to the health food store, and they recommended arnica for my sciatica, and it did help alot.

The pain everywhere is sporadic, it comes and goes as it pleases. Lately it has been worst after work every day soon as I'm home I sit or lay down and pretty much done for the day. Not much trouble getting out of bed in the mornings.

I'm new to homeopathy, so

Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Ps::: I also started having kidney stones around the same time as my back started giving me trouble. Related to uric acid. About 30 of them the last 10 years between the size of a grain of sand and 5.5 mm.

Homeo.mpz,

Thank you so much. I went to the local health store and bought the natrum muriaticum, got home and was expired. Ordered some in and will post up the results.

Thanks again!
 
matt82 6 years ago
homeo.mpz,

it hasnt been 15 days yet, but wanted to give an update.

it has been 5 days since finishing the dosage you prescribed. after the second dose, i had slightly more pain all over body, including a pain in my lower left abdomen, the same place that hurts when im passing a kidney stone.

pain in abdomen went away before third dose was due, so i continued with the dosage.

all in all, im feeling considerably better. there is still pain in my back, but much duller than normal. im getting out of bed much easier now.

inflammation has decreased somewhat in my back also.

shoulder pain is totally gone, but it comes and goes so cant say if the nat mur had anything to do with it.

knee pain is still there, but considerably better, and inflammation is almost gone.

pain on right side of neck hasnt changed. i would say it bothers me the most at this time. especially when cold air is blowing on it.

still having trouble sleeping. like usual. but that you ask about confidence, i do seem more confident especially working with the public at my job. noticed that yesterday and today.

as far as mental freshness, its hard to say, i have an extremely fast paced job, but my short term memory may have gotten slightly better.

it seems as though your prescription has helped quite a bit on most of my symptoms.

i will be awaiting further instruction, and appreciate your time helping me out.
 
matt82 6 years ago
good news, the remedy seems to be working.

Report in same way when 15 days are over.
 
homeo.mzp 6 years ago
Update: everything is pretty much where I started again. Inflammation in mid spine is back. Shooting pain down inner thighs is my main complaint. Alternating sides. Knee pain is back especially right knee.

I occasionally pop my neck to overcome headaches. There used to be a severe pain shooting down my spinal cord when I would pop the left side of my neck. That pain seems to have almost disappeared.

Also just yesterday and today I've had moderate arthritis pain in the middle finger of my right hand. This is something new, my hands have never hurt.

Thanks.

take NATRIUM MURIATICUM 30c single dose early morning, not daily, update after 7 days.

thanks...
 
homeo.mzp 6 years ago
Took single dose 7 days ago. Seemed to give almost instant relief of pain. Relief lasted 2 days no pain anywhere. On 3rd day pain in knees and mid spine started coming back. On 4th day pain went right back the way it has been and in following days my knees and back were really bad from 2pm until bedtime. Today not so bad some right knee pain only minor. And minor shoulder pain.

On the really bad days the pain in my inner thighs was severe. Shooting down from groin area to knee only one side at a time. Could hardly walk.

Pain in mid spine was also severe. I've had pain this bad before so I don't think the dosage had a bad effect.

Thanks.
