The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Trichotillomania and Trichophagia

I have had a habit of pulling hair from my head, face and chest. I also have a habit of tasting and inspecting hair before throwing it away. I am known to be ill tempered and moody. I am a sort of perfectionist at the work I do. Rich food, milk products and meats don't suit me. I have a very strong, insatiable sexual desire. I have a lot of sexual fantasies and masturbate a lot. Situation gets worse after masturbation.

So here's where I am now at the end of seven days. Everything seems to still be there but much less. Also, at least I am now much more aware of it and other symptoms. I am still pulling hair but not that often, my nervous temprament seems to have calmed down, the anger and upsets are less. For the first time, some one actually said to me 'don't you ever get upset?' That's never happened before. The sciatic pain down my left thigh is not so prominent. I'm still picking my nose and that tickly feeling in the nose is still there. The palpitation, breathlessness and anxiety at night is still there, but less. In general, it's been a calmer week in spite of the work pressure. Even the masturbation is less. Two times this week.
I have further updated my medical profile, and so am uploading it again.

I took the medicines in liquid form Is that ok?

Please wait and watch. If there is regression in improvement repeat the above protocol and wait again.

Waited. Tried again and waited again. There is a much higher sense of well being and energy especially after taking the Lachesis. There doesn't seem to be any effect of the Belladonna. But the habit of pulling hair from my face, inspecting it and tasting it still exists. Even the habit of masturbating still happens 3 times a week. Could this be a thyroid problem? My yoga exercises every morning have become far more energetic, but my legs still pain a lot after a long walk and the right knee still falls (ligament pull) if I jerk it.

Please take Lycopodium 200 twice a day for 3 days and see how that affects over 10 days.
