Chronic back pain/possible arthritis/chronic coughMy mother is 62.5 years old. She had lower back problems (maybe 25-30 years ago,) received some chiropractic treatment and was okay. Then since last 10 years or so she has had lower back pain on and off. Recently it got very bad she could not sit, sleep, walk without pain. Also, she has developed some arthritic issues (stiff in morning, gets better with motion) since past 4-6 years. She is a working woman, she stands on her feet for 8 hours. Her right foot and right ankle also hurt and they were always swollen. She got special shoes now the pain transferred to her back. She was considering surgery but I told her to try Arnica montana 30c. She has been on it 5 days, taking it 4-5 times a day (5 pellets under tongue.) She is now able to walk and she is in much better mood. She said she feels 70% better, not 100%. Also, she now feels sore in her back, her walk again has become a little bad, although pain may not be there. She also has had chronic dry cough (scratchy throat) for 2-3 years that had got better some time ago, now seemed to return (maybe with arnica use, do not know.) I know her condition is chronic so maybe 200c might have worked better, but she was in a lot of pain and medicine was not available easily. Should we stop the arnica or continue? Should we change dose? Please advise. Thank you.

Let her take 3 doses of RHUS TOX 200C on a single day, eight hours apart and wait for response. If she responds, take one dose whenever she relapses.
Increase potency only when 200C ceases to produce response.

To be on the safe side, give her just one dose of Rhus Tox 200C and see if she responds.
If her lower back pain doesn't get relief, we can take her full case and give her appropriate remedy.
