This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
it will take quite some time to cure. if you have the patience I can take your case.
telescope 7 years ago
Yes, we were under the impression that it was not going to be a fast process. She has been getting sick for years, and we don't expect to magically cure overnight. Thanks so much telescope, were all ears over here. Awaiting your first suggestion!
matt82 7 years ago
Please give only one dose Calcarea Carb 200. do not use any other medicine. do not eat or drink any sour article. if the medicine acts favour ably you will experience mood changes and relief of acute symptoms in two to three days. update after 3days.
telescope 7 years ago
Thank you for the quick response. One question. As stated above, she has been taking bromium 6c for a few days. I will advise her to stop. It will take a few days to get new remedy. Is this a long enough gap in between to start your recommendation or should she wait longer?
matt82 7 years ago
it will be enough.
telescope 7 years ago
My local store can order the 200c. Would this be what we need?

Telescope, calcarea came in today, is pellet form. How much does she take as 1 dose? Bottle says 5 pellets, 3 times daily. Is the Boiron brand.
matt82 7 years ago
dissolve 5 pellets in half a cup of water and take it. that is one dose. do not take more than one dose.
telescope 7 years ago
Ok dose given. Will update in a few days. Thanks.
matt82 7 years ago
After 3 days:

Fatigue symptoms are slightly better. Headaches only occurring on right side of forehead now and behind right eye. Was both sides before the single dose of calc carb.
Nothing else has changed as of now. Thanks.

Oh the headaches behind the eye occur with eyelid twitching.

calc Carb 200 will act for around 20 days. so now you have to wait patiently. inform if any new development occurs.
telescope 7 years ago
Sounds good. Will keep you informed. Thanks again.
matt82 7 years ago
I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the calc carb, but she has had an occasional problem with her right arm going numb, and it has gotten alot worse since she's taken it, like off and on everyday now. Used to be maybe once a week. It was bothering her before taking remedy. She's had two chiropractor visits in the past week but isn't seeming to help at all. Also I've noticed that she snores alot more when laying on her right side since taking the single dose. I believe we're about 13 days in. Hasn't complained of headaches for a couple of days now. Also she mentioned having a better time at work, not As emotional as usual, such as crying over little things. And stays up a little later at night now. Normally her head would hit the pillow and fall asleep immediately, now it's maybe 15 or 20 minutes.
matt82 7 years ago
as there is improvement of mental symptoms we can conclude that medicine is acting favourably. it is usual for some physical symptoms to get worse initially. there is nothing to worry about. they will go away after some time. let's wait a few more days before repeating medicine.
telescope 7 years ago
Everything is basically the same as last reported. Symptoms got somewhat better and held steady so far. Shoulder pain and numbness are still present but the chiropractor wants 2 more visits. He says the tense spots are getting better. She stays awake longer in the evenings than usual but snoring when laying on the right side is still really bad.
matt82 7 years ago
it will take some time for the problems to resolve. next dose will bring more improvement. repeat medicine when improvement stops or there is relapse.
