Can you describe the exact sensation of your migraine:

-Is it constant dull or throbbing or hammering pain?

-What time of the day or night is it worst and what time is it better?

- Does it get better or worse by hard pressure, rubbing, hot application, cold application.
 
rishimba 6 years ago
It is a constant throbbing pain. It gets worse at night and early morning. ..by late morning, it starts subsiding. It comes back again in the evening. My migraine lasts 3 days every month.
I get some relief by hot application and by having a head massage

Please take 3 doses of LACHESIS 30C taken on a single day, each dose 4 hours apart.

Wait and watch for the next 15 days and let me know. Its better to take the remedy when you are having a bout of migraine just before your period.
 
rishimba 6 years ago
Thanks. Does this also address the low sex drive issue?
 
pakri 6 years ago
Its based on the disease picture. Once the cure will start, your libido also will become normal.

Lachesis individuals have generally a high libido but in the diseased state, it may be less.
 
rishimba 6 years ago
Thank you. Since my periods for this month is over, I 'll take it after 3 weeks and let you know. In 1 dose, should I take 4-5 pills?
 
pakri 6 years ago
Hi Rishimba,
Today was my 1st day of migraine. I took the pills as prescribed. The pain is still there, although the intensity has come down drastically (it feels like my usual 3rd day of migraine). Also, not sure if i'd mentioned this earlier, but for the last 2-3 months, I feel pukish and throw up a little on the 1st night of my headache. It happened today as well, even though the headache is not very strong. Do I continue with the pills? Pls advise.

Dr Rishimba,
Pls help if you're available. I have migraine again this month and it is quite severe. I took lachesis, but had no relief. I'm in terrible pain.
 
pakri 6 years ago
I have migraine again now. For the last couple of months I've been getting migraine at the end of my periods as opposed to beginning of the cycle. It's quite severe. Lachesis 30 isn't giving me relief.
