Your remedy is most probably PHOSPHORUS.

To start your treatment please take 3 doses of PHOSPHORUS 200C each dose 12 hours apart. Take the doses in empty stomach and clean mouth.

One dose would be 3 drops of remedy in some 10 ml of water slowly sipped up.

Don't take any food or water or anything one hour before or after.

Buy the remedy of a reputed International brand like Reckeweg, Boiron, Helios etc.
Once you start feeling better mentally and physically in the next 10 days, come back here to know your sustained dose for complete cure.

If Phosphorus does not work, the next best remedy is STANNUM METALLICUM. One of the two will definitely cure you.

All the best.

Thank you so much for your response.
To clarify dosage...

If I take one dose (3drops) now then next will be after 12 hours? and I need to do that thrice to make it 3 doses? and stop after 3 doses.


I need to take 3 doses (9drops) each time with 12 hours gap? and take it for next 10 days?

I am sorry if I am asking too basic question.

dave_brijesh 7 years ago
Let me explain..

Take 3 drops in the morning at 6 am.

Then take 3 drops in the evening on the same day at 6 pm.

Then take 3 drops next morning at 6 am.

Stop taking the dose. Wait and watch for next 10 days and share notes with me after 10 days.
rishimba 7 years ago
I took medicine as advised.

I feel a little relaxed and was able to sleep with less effort.

Overall nice feeling.

Please can you suggest next treatment and regular dosage of Medicine.

dave_brijesh 7 years ago
Did it bring any relief to your 'writer's cramp' problem?

How many days have passed since you took the dose-set?
rishimba 7 years ago
Last dose was 6 days back. I am feeling 5 to 7 percent relief in writers cramp.
Earlier I was not able to write anything.
Now can write one sentence then stiffness starts followed by trembling.
If forced to write more I have to use only thumb and middle finger in holding pen. This awkward pen holding helps in writing couple of words more.
dave_brijesh 7 years ago
You may take in all three doses in this potency. Take the doses once in ten to fifteen day, not earlier.

After three doses, its better to go for 1M potency once in about a month. This will be gradual cure.
rishimba 7 years ago
I need to take 3 dosages every 15 days? Till medicine is there in existing bottle.

Post that increase potency of Medicine to 1M with same frequency?

Also, do you advise Causticum as I see somewhere on forum.

Thanks for your help
dave_brijesh 7 years ago
You should take PHOSPHORUS 200C once every 15 days.

After 3 doses, wait for 15 days and then report to me regarding your improvement.

Don't take causticum. If you take Causticum, all good work of Phosphorus will be antidoted. Causticum and Phosphorus should NEVER be taken together or one after the other as they are inimical to each other and cancel each other's effect.

In case you switch over to 1M potency after 3 doses, you should not take it more than once a month and only for 3 doses maximum. However, if you are fully cured by one or two doses of phosphorus 1M, you should stop dosing.

I have taken three doses at 10-15 days gap since initial doses.
3 days back i visited a homeopathy doctor for treament of my other minor problems like, consistent cough, weakness, lack of apitite, pain and burning sensation in low part of leg etc,

He gave few medicines, names of which I do not know.

Today is second day of his treatment and I am experiencing that my writer's cramp problem has aggreviated again.

I told him clearly that I am taking Phosporus 200 and frequency. I believed he included medicine for writer's cramp too in his set of medicines.

Can you please advise here? What should I do? I am confused.
dave_brijesh 7 years ago
I don't know which remedy has he prescribed to you. Only after knowing that I would be able to tell you something.

I hope Phosphorus was helping you for your original complaint. Let me know how much relief did you get after taking Phosphorus and what was your dosing pattern.

Also, let me know what remedy has he given you. It could be that the remedy he has prescribed may have antidoted Phosphorus.
rishimba 7 years ago
Medicines he gave are in small bottles with no lables but runs through whole day at regular interval. That is why I do not know their names.

Your prescribes medicine definately helped me. till now i have taken
1) 3 doses at 12 hour interval each initially (1.5 month back) then
2) I am taking 1 dose ever 15 days.
3) Dose here is 3 drops of Phosporus 200.

I too believes his medicine have antidoted as its only 2nd day and i am feeling back to square one.

I would say i felt 10 percent cured after taking your prescribed medicine till now.

Can I request you to advise medicine for my other problems too alongwith write's cramp? Problem i am currently facing are

1) Writer's cramp
2) Regular pain below knee
3) Burning sensation in bottom of feet
4) lack of apitite
5) lack of sleep
6) pain in forehead continuously
7) Body getting weaker day by day

I shared my detailed history and current physical structure earlier. Post that you prescribed Phosphorus200.

I shall be greatful to you for your help.
dave_brijesh 7 years ago
OK, you can stop his remedies and come back after 10 days.

It is no point giving any remedy now cause you are under the effect of other remedies.

You should have come to me for your other problems as I have your case history.

Let the effect of these remedies subside. Later we will see what would help you best.
rishimba 7 years ago
Thanks for your response and help.

Please can you advise after 5 days as I will have to order medicines online and it will take 4-5 days for them to be delivered.
dave_brijesh 7 years ago
I wanted you to come out of the effects of the remedies you have taken recently and present your original symptoms. That's why I thought 10 days would be a fair gap.
rishimba 7 years ago
Please now can you advise about treatment to follow. I gave you response to 24 questions earlier for case history. Here main physical weaknesses faced:-

1) Writer's cramp (You advised Phosphorus 200 and it helped to some extent)

2) consistent pain below knee and at bottom of feet
3) Burning sensation in bottom of feet
4) lack of apitite
5) lack of sleep (Due to shift timing I sleep by 2AM only causing break in sleep in morning )
6) pain in forehead continuously
7) Body getting weaker day by day
8) Weak throat, after talking for 30 min or so I can feel irritation in throat.
9) Can not drink cold drink and similar food.
10) From many years gets frequent cough and mucus. due to this dont drink milk, do not eat curd, do not take banana. But still problem occurs.

Please help!
dave_brijesh 7 years ago
Please take STANNUM METALLICUM 200C only three doses, each dose 12 hours apart.

One dose would be 3 drops in some 10 ml of water sipped up in empty stomach. No food or water one hour before or after.

Let me know your response in the next 15 days.

Based on your response, we will either continue this remedy or change to Phosphorus.
rishimba 7 years ago
I am able to see this from Reckeweg

Stannum met 200

It doesnt mention complete name nor c after 200 i.e. 200c.

I belive this is the one i need to take. Can you please confirm?
dave_brijesh 7 years ago
Yes, this is the one.
rishimba 7 years ago
Here is latest situation..

- I took 3 dosages of Stannum Met 200c as directed
- I feel stiffness in wrist after i start writing 2-3 words
- However initiation of writing is somewhat better
- With previous medicine phosphorus i felt comfort in writing 1-2 lines, there was lesser stiffness in wrist but initiating writing required some focus. But I took Phosphorus for 1.5 month and stannum only once.

Also, kinldy do suggest medicines for below alongwith my above problem
- lack of apitite and short sleep
- pain and burning sensation in legs

Please ask me more question if I am missing any important symptom/effect
dave_brijesh 7 years ago
Stanum and Phsphorus do not interact as such, so you can alternate these remedies. Take Phosphorus 200C one dose after 15 days of Stanum and then again Stanum after 15 days of Phosphorus.

Continue this for 3 months. I hope all your problems would be cured.
rishimba 7 years ago
Thanks for being helpful and making me think positive that all problems be cured.

I have a request if you are fine..

- Can i take these medicins at an alternative of 10 days?

- or it has to be 15 days only.

- I hope both will not act as a antidote for each other? although you mentioned they do not interact.

dave_brijesh 7 years ago
They don't interact so there is no problem. I just wanted to go slow as Phosphorus is a deep acting remedy and thus would work for long.

You can take it initially once in 10 days and as soon as you are a bit better, reduce the frequency to once in 15 days. Take it for long time till you are fully cured. In case you don't get full relief, we will go to the next higher potency.
