Burning sensations in whole body

Dear Homeopaths,

I've been helped in this forum once during an acute burn-out 3 years ago.

Now I have another problem, and no doctor I have consulted so far can find a cure/reason.

It started in August 2014 with high pulse and palpitations. The strange thing was, that when the heart started to beat faster, my legs started to hurt and burn. This was worst every night from 4 o'clock to morning.

I took some herbal remedies to strengthen the heart, but the reason for the palpitaitons could not be found. Blood tests were ok and so was the thyroid. Blood pressure was low to normal.

Four weeks ago one of my molars started to hurt, it had to have a root canal treatment, finally it was removed. After the removal my heart strangely was ok again. But an inflammation was in my jaw bone, which had to be cured by an antibiotic.

During this whole treatment, the burning sensation in my whole body got worse and worse. Now it's everywhere in my body, but not all the time. It's hard to say when it comes on and when it goes off, but it's in all places of my body, especially in my tongue! My mouth feels bitter and sour. It frightens me a lot, because nobody finds the reason for these symptoms. And I feel that I am developping a strong depression therefore (fear of severe illness, fear of dying).

One of my friends told me she had heard that if one has a severe lack of Vitamine B12, one has those symptoms. So since 5 days I've started to take Vitamine B12 in a high dose orally. But it doesn't seem to make a change.

Can anyone please help me and advise me what I can do, where I can go or what I have to look for to get well again?

Thank you so much in advance, I am very desperate.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.

Please fill out the form-

Give detailed answers.

Describe where it burns on the tongue- center,
edges, tip?

Describe the appearance of your tongue.

When the legs started to burn, where was the sensation? on the sides, back, etc and
was there any other sensations that went with it.

You seem to say the heart is ok now- correct?

The root canal means there was an infection and
that always goes on when the tooth nerve is dying.
When you are not aware of this and not treating it,
then the body is using a lot of energy to fight
the infection and draining your immune system where
you don't have the normal energy to combat other

Dear Cornelia,

I would like you to get hold of Sepia 30c.

Take two doses 12 hours apart and then report what you
notice the next day. If you have any big reactions
after dose one , then stop at that dose and report.

You can take 3 pills and mix in a couple tablespoons
of water and then take a tsp for a dose- hold this
in your mouth for 20 seconds before swallowing.
Or if you get liquid, use 2 drops in the 2 tablespoons
of water and take a tsp as the dose.

I would also like you to get a good probiotic to
help rebalance your gut flora from the antibiotics.
Not sure what country you are in-but if usa, Whole
foods has a good selection. Get one that has at
least 8 strains of bacteria. Sometimes you have
to experiment with different brands as they seem
to affect people differently. Start out with one
dose a day-when you find one you like you have to
take this for at least 2 months to redo the gut flora.

Dear Simone 717,
THANK YOU for your quick answer. I have Sepia 30c at home as "globules", I guess you have them too in your country. I don't have the remedy as pills. I'll do immediately as you advise dissolving 3 globules in some water and I'll report after taking the two doses (or one if there are reactions).

As for the probiotic, I already have one, the best that is available on the German market, according to what my doctor and a friend say. I'll see how it works.

Again, thank you very much for your kind help.

Best regards,
tiger.spirit 5 years ago
Hi Cornelia,

Have you tried Sepia 30 in the past?
If so, what for and what were the results?

Regarding probiotic-
have you been taking this before writing on here?
If so, for how long and what do you notice
from it?


simone717 5 years ago
Hi Simone,
I might have had it some time in the past... a long time ago. I guess it must have been when I lost a baby in 1997. I haven't recorded all the remedies that I've had in my life - unfortunately.

I have taken a probiotic with only one strain of bacteria which did not really do a lot. So I've ordered the new one now and hope it'll be effective. So far I have burning and itching sensations...

Thank you!!!
PS. In which country are you at home?
tiger.spirit 5 years ago

ok, that is good you ordered another one-
if you tolerate dairy products, another
good thing to do is have some plain, natural
yogurt once a day also.

Have you taken a dose of sepia already?
is the burning and itching worse after taking?

I am in California, usa.

Yes, I have taken a dose of Sepia. No, the burning is not worse, it is rather better. But there is a change in my mood. I feel more "down to earth". I'll take the second dose in appr. 4 hours, go to bed then (it's past midnight here then) and I'll report tomorrow morning.

I don't (or very rarely) eat cow's milk dairy products, but I can eat sheep milk yoghurt, which I have done straight after the antibiotic. Greek yoghurt with home-made honey (my partner is a beekeeper) is a delight :-).

I find it fascinating that you live in the US and are taking care of my health problems. My ex-mother-in-law is based in Phoenix. She emigrated to the US some years ago.

tiger.spirit 5 years ago
Greek yogurt sounds good!

Will wait to hear from you tomorrow.


simone717 5 years ago
Dear Siomone,

I took a second dose before I went to sleep last night. I slept quite well, with the burning and aching still going on. At night I woke up, because I felt that my whole back was in pain. It was burning and aching. Overall, nothing seems to haver really changed concerning the pain (burning and aching). It has never been itching though, and I felt that this morning some parts were itching. Another thing was that I had a headache during the night, not at the sides of the head or in the back, but literally "on top of" the head.

Emotionally I feel better, as I said, more down to earth and less frightened of the "unknown evil" that is expecting me.

What shall I do now? Take another dose?

Kind regards, looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi Simone,
second feedback for today:

As the day went on, I started to become more and more depressed. I also feel a bit weak in my legs. But the sadness starts overwhelming me slowly. I pull myself together in front of my family. I don't want them to see me in such a depressed state.

I feel like crying the whole time. But I guess when I am alone, I won't be able to.

Kind regards, hoping to hear from you soon.
tiger.spirit 5 years ago
Hi Cornelia,

We have to wait now for a few days. You are
having an aggravation which is a good sign,
especially since it is following the right
direction of cure where one feels mentally
better ("more down to earth") first.

The remedy is acting and will bring things
up and out, they won't last. You can post
updates as often as you want,but do not
suppress anything and watch what is going
on for the next few days.
simone717 5 years ago
Hi Simone,
no further dose?

So I'll wait and observe what happens without suppressing anything.

Thanks a lot!
tiger.spirit 5 years ago
Hi- Once you have a reaction to any remedy- good
or bad- you stop dosing and observe.
simone717 5 years ago
Hi Simone,

the symptoms are still there, no further changes.

On the emotional level, today something happened. We had a family gathering as it was my dad's 75th birthday. Yet I felt very sad when I left and still do. I haven't told my parents that I have no job at the moment. I am a teacher, I quit my job last summer because I couldn't do it any more. I wasn't fired, but now I can't find a new one... I have two daughters and I am responsible for them, 2 dogs, a cat and a house.

I feel very sad, fake, dishonest, ashamed, weak, irresponsible and like a loser. I've failed again. If my parents knew about my situation, they would be worried. But they would also judge me - and that's what I am afraid of and what I don't want. This is the reason why I play this game - pretending that nothing has changed and that I am still at school.

On the other hand, my parents are very lonely. Both my daughters don't go and see them very often - neither do I. My brother does, but he doesn't have children. I guess I also feel responsible for their loneliness. But I can't see them more often, it would only lead to arguments. It feels like a lose-lose situation.

On the physical level my partner mentioned that the pain reminded him of the pain I had 3 years ago during my burn-out when I had a herpes zoster infection around my neck. Could it be that the antibiotic activated the herpes virus?

This is how I feel at the moment.
Kind regards,
tiger.spirit 5 years ago

The herpes zoster has a rash with it- activated by low immune system-

We need to see what this remedy is going to do-

-1. You said the burning was a little better after
taking this-
By what percentage is it better, or has it gone back
to same as prior to taking?
2. I understand going to the b'day party was very
stressful- but before the party, were you feeling
more grounded than previous or more present?

I would like you to take another dose- but this time
put the remedy into a water bottle with a couple tablespoons in it and dissolve. Hit the bottle 5x
and then take one tsp out as a dose- hold in mouth
for 20 seconds. Let me know what happens after 24 hours
of taking. You are not a loser- you have to do what you
need to do, and when one is feeling vulnerable- the Last
thing you need is someone judging you and bringing you

simone717 5 years ago
Thanks for your reply!

1. The burning has gone back to the same.

I guess you should also know that I am seeing a natural practicioner here. She does global diagnostics and said I was "full of toxins" according to her diagnostics. Statements like this frighten me to death and stay in my mind. Even if two days after in the next session the diagnostics was already 50% better, the previous statement still lingers in my mind...But the cleansing of the body with all sorts of herbs and plants and zeolite doesn't seem to affect the burning and the pain at all. Sometimes I can hardly walk, because my ankles and feet hurt so much. Two nights ago, the soles of my feet were extremely red and hurt and burnt.

2. No, I didn't feel more grounded before going to the party. I had a few panic attacks during the week, especially at night, when the symptoms get worse.

I sometimes feel that the fear and the panic and the permanent thinking about all the bad things that could happen to me are much worse than the pain itself.

I will take another dose, and observe and report.

Thank you, also for your kind words. I can read and understand them, but it's hard to believe them. I feel so sad about the whole situation.

tiger.spirit 5 years ago
Hi Cornelia,

Glad you told me about the "natural practitioner- I feel what she is doing is wrong.

In order for toxins to leave your body safely
the eliminatory organs have to be built up
to handle the toxins. The body has wisdom
and it stores toxins in the safest places
away from major organs.

There are many people in the usa who are
continually "de toxing" and making themselves
sick by doing this. Including nutritional
counselors and naturopaths who are overdosing
people with herbs, vitamins, detox systems
and so on.

I would like you to read a partial free
Pdf by Dr. Joe Rosencwaig,he is an MD,
a surgeon, a homeopath and acupuncturist-
he is an expert on detox and this pdf is
part of his book on it.

You cannot do the homeopathy and whatever this person
is doing at the same time. And HOW is she doing
her "diagnosis"? I will bet it is not from lab tests
but muscle testing or some machine. This is bogus.

Anyone would feel bad if they believed their dr was
telling them they were full of toxins, and it is ok
to Feel sad- your feelings are what they are and they
will change- feelings always Feel like they are never
going to change- But they do.

Google "organotheray, drainage, and Detoxification"
Dr. Joe Roscenwaig ( look for the link that says
Minimum books, pdf) there are a lot of links for this
book including another one by Minimum books- but find
the pdf- What he says is common sense and science based.

simone717 5 years ago
Hello Simone,

Thank you so much for your input. You made me think a lot... I'll look into the book you have recommended.

And I also felt that there is something basically going wrong in my body at the moment.... I just didn't know what it was, because due to the pain I felt weak, insecure and lost and I would cling to any straw that was offered to me.

I have not yet taken the next dose of Sepia 30c as you said. I felt it would be too much after all.

I guess you are right with what you're saying. What would you recommend now?

Kind regards,
tiger.spirit 5 years ago
What exactly are you taking from the naturopath?

When was the last time you took anything?

You cannot do two systems at once. I feel that
what you have taken from her has disrupted your system. Just as an example, I took grapefruit seed
extract years ago after a health food store person
said it was good to take to improve digestion.

I took pills on two days. After that, my stomach
was burning and cramping up for 3 weeks. Doctors
had no idea what was wrong with me. Only after
3 weeks did I recall that was the only thing that
I had taken or done differently.

So let me know the above and we can go from there.
simone717 5 years ago
Hello Simone,

honestly I cannot tell you everything she has given me, because, as you have already guessed right, it is a machine ("Global Diagnostics") that is diagnosing and already giving the so-called healing information in form of energetic vibrations. And she was also giving homeopathic complex remedies plus vitamins and minerals iv plus autohaemotherapy plus... amongst others, I remember vitamin c, magnesium, zeolite, vitamin b12. Amongst the homeopathic remedies were chamomilla, pyrogenium, staphisagria, nux vomica, veratrum album, hypericum, arsenicum, sulfur, all in low potencies, plus different herbal mixtures as teas for kidney and liver.

This was before posting my case in this forum. After I took Sepia as you told me I still kept seeing her, and also asked her if it was ok to do both systems, and she said yes. I believed her, of course. She is a very nice, warm and friendly person and I saw no reason why she shouldn't do the right thing since she has been practicing for almost 20 yrs now.

As I said, I have been so desperate since August last year, I would have clung to any straw offered and I went to see a lot of experts and doctors to help me.

To tell you the full story, I called a friend last week who is "clairvoyant" (whatever you may think of this). I've made some quite astonishing experiences with him and I've known him for a long time. To me, he is very trustworthy. He said he saw a mutated virus (could be a Herpes zoster, he couldn't tell) that "attacks" the nerves of my body as my nervous system seems to be completely blocked due to a shock I might have had.

3 yrs ago I had an acute bun-out (I mentioned it in the form I filled in) and shingles around the neck was one of the symptoms. So I definitely had a Herpes Zoster virus once.

Another point you might need to know: The person who has medically accompanied me in the past years after the acute burn-out is a very old and experienced anthroposophic doctor. He recommended Arsenic 30d 3x a day for a week now. But I didn't take it either, as he is quite old now and sometimes he talks in a confusing way. This was also before posting my case. He has given me Ars.album 30d and lower before in the past.

In autumn 2014 I went to see another homeopath because of my high pulse and palpitations at night who gave me Nat mur 50.000 because of the sexual abuse in 2007. I didn't go and see this person again. I have no idea how this remedy worked all in all. The "heart problems" stopped only after my tooth was extracted. I think I also mentioned this in the form.

While writing all this to you I realize HOW MUCH my body was given during the past few months and weeks. However, the burning and stinging pain is still there, and it has always been, more or less strong, no matter what I took.

What I realized - as I said - is that I completely lost my orientation and belief in myself during the whole process. Whereas the fear of severe illness and death and evil threats has calmed a bit since I have spoken to my clairvoyant friend as I have a "diagnosis" now.

I hope you can cope with all this information!

Thank you for making me reflect again what I'm doing and not trusting everybody and everything without questioning! I just felt so helpless and lost.

Kind regards,
tiger.spirit 5 years ago

Was she giving you " real " remedies that have a brand on them-
or was she giving you her own- made up remedies? Bc sometimes these
people with the machines, just put pills on the machine or near it,
then the "machine" puts the "vibration" of what ever remedy into
the pill or the water.

Real homeopathic remedies are made from the substance and then
diluted, etc according to strict guidelines.

Herpes zoster is from a compromised immune system not working up
to normal. If you had herpes zoster you would have a rash again.

Let me know about the remedies. And when the last time you took
simone717 5 years ago
Dear Simone,

she was actually giving me both, real remedies (with brands on them) and "made-up" remedies via the machine.

Regarding the herpes, there is no rash. But the pain is identical to shingles.

I have taken the last remedies Friday a week ago when I was at her practice.

Kind regards
tiger.spirit 5 years ago

Yes, you can have post shingles nerve pain, but usually
that condition is one that continues after the shingles are gone.
It can be brought on by stress. In your case, I don't know
what was brought on by what you have taken.

Lets start over here: I would like you to take one dose
of sulphur 30c in the morning half hour before you eat.
Take 2 drops or 2 pills in two tablespoons of water. Stir up.
Take one tsp out of that and hold in your mouth for
20 seconds. Watch your reactions over 24 hours- then report
what you notice.


simone717 5 years ago
Thanks, I'll do so and I'll report.
Have a great week
