The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Seeking help on gradually progressing pains in the body starting from soles to head.

I would like to seek a second opinion on this forum as somehow I get a feeling that my current homeopath seems to be fooling me around with the same remedy for the last 4-5 months with no avail and the situation getting worse. With the hope that I might be able to identify the remedy myself I have started doing some preliminary study of going through the materia medica and repertorisation but I am still a novice at it and struggling to filter the remedies. Any suggestions and directions would help.

Age : 35 years
Diagnosed in the past with OCD (since 18 years). Predominantly mental compulsions and obsessions. Fear & doubts of losing control of self, memory, health.

Physical Symptoms :
-------------------
1. Pains initially started in the tibia region. They used to be pronounced after exertion (running, climbing stairs, anything that puts strain). Pains running through the length of the lower tibia.
2. Slowly it progressed into the heels and then to the soles toes. But it was only after some exertion.
3. Alternating scrotal pains left and right. pronounced after exertion.
4. Now these pains are there even with out any exertion, except the instensity keeps changing through out the day
3. After a few months, there was a point on the knee cap which had a dull ache and was evident after pressing that the pain seems to come from a small point somewhere behind or inside of the knee cap. A few weeks later symmetrically on the right knee there was a point where this started, but with very less intensity but only visible on intense pressure on the point. Recently the pain is surrounding the joint area, this dull ache comes and goes.
4. At same time Somewhere where near the lower back region, near the hip pain began. there is again a point and some dull ache surrounding that point. Exertion of any kind increases the pain and spreads to the surrounding muscle area as well.
5. After a few weeks it started in the toes and fingers. the seat of the pains can be felt after pressing the bones otherwise there is a dull ache being experienced all along. Just a note that the none of the joints themselves have any stiffness or pains they seem to surrounding the joint area and running along the length of the bones.
6. After a few days it was the upper back with stiching pains emanating from small spots. Shoulder. Pains & soreness can be felt by pressure.
7. Next area was the sternum and ribcage, some points were the seat of the stiching pains where as the overall rib cage felt sore and bruised on pressure.
8. Recently over the last 2-3 weeks the pains have progressed to the facial area. Initially started with pain in the temple spot (right and left). Seat of pain can be felt by pressing the temple area radiating from a single splot. the facial bones - cheek bones, jaw on pressure feel sore.
9. No stiffness in any of the joints and no evident inflammation in the body anywhere.
10. Overall body soreness better after warm bath in the morning for a an hour or so.
11. Tibia & feet pain better for sometime by using room temperature water in the evening after washing legs.
12. random pain in biceps, forearm, elbow region points.
13. Pains sometimes better during 5 to 7PM evening.

Suspected case of Fibromyalgia. No medication recommended. Slow walking advised for 1 hour daily, advised min 8 hours of sleep. I used to play a lot of cricket atleast 2 hours per day with pace bowling until recently when the pains overtook me.

HOMEOPATHY
============
Previous Remedy
--------------
Rhus Tox - 6X to 1M increased on a fornightly basis Daily 3-3-3 pellets. Dont know exactly which potencies were given in between but finally ended up at 1M.

Current remedies :
--------------
Rhus Tox 1M : 1-1-1 for - 3 days (Diskettes)
Silicea 5c : 1-1-1 for - 3 days
Gap - 7 days
Repeat cycle for 3 months.

No changes in last 5 months the symptoms seem to be progressed to newer areas.
--------------------------------------------------------

AS per my analysis the remedies that suit me are the following.

- Bryonia >
- Pulsatilla > I know this is predominantly a female remedy but this seems to agree to my symptoms.
- Ruta acts on the periosteum which I believe might be my case as well but I am not able to ascertain this.

Please let me know what do you think on the remedies and the dosage that I need to experiment with. Should I stop the Rhus tox, since I have been having this for almost now close to 5 months or so with no response.Also let me know the drugs that are antidotes & affinities etc so that I can be careful when i ingest them.


Thanks!!

Thanks 0antivirus0.
I have taken the dosages in the liquid dilution as suggested by you. I will be observant on the dimensions indicated by you yday night and today morning.

As a novice both as a patient of homeopathy and an inquisitive learner, I am keen to understand when would the indications be evident after a remedy is initiated to see if it is acting.
For instance if I dont see a response after 4-5 days does it mean that the remedy may not be right or is it the case that the indications can also show a couple of weeks later after ingestion.
For instance when I look up at Causticum the remedy duration is mentioned as 50d. Does it mean that remedy can have affect for 50d once ingested and can show improvement any time in 50d or is it that if there is no response observed in a few days we need to move on to the next remedy.

Thanks.
 
novicehomeo 5 years ago
we generally take to find response in 15 to 20 days, then moving to next remedy
 
0antivirus0 5 years ago
Hi 0antivirus0,

An interim updat, its been 6 ddays since the remedy was administered

feeling calm= no change
good sleep= no change pre and post remedy.
proper energy level= 5% improvement in energy
self control= 10% improvement
confidence level= 10% improvement
freshness on waking up= no change.
love and affection with others= 5% improved
mental freedom or freshness= 5% better
pain= No change
any other change you felt= None

Should we go for another dose of remedy or wait for another couple of weeks or can i expect any change to happen over the next few days? I have seen no amelioration of pain after the administration of the dosage.

Thanks.

Dear antivirus won't reducing excess vayu in him help heal better.He is constipated, dislikes cold dry foods, is anxious and fearful, problem of gas, dryness in body.cant digest food that is not spicy, light headed at times.He is indecisive and changes mind easily.Possibly wakes at night between 2-6 am , is a light sleeper..............tall and thin individual. Likes travelling ........

All of above mean excess vayu. Does not it??
 
Teupne 5 years ago
yes you are right teupne.

excess vayu is the main cause here.

from which country are you novicehomeo ??
 
0antivirus0 5 years ago
From India, Delhi
 
Teupne 5 years ago
Teupne is a rogue element, dear 0antivirus0 please disregard any of his statements.
None of his symptoms that he has responded on my behalf are incorrect. I think his account has now been suspended.

I am reporting to the causticum 200c after 8 days.

All of the below are compared to base line when I reported the problem.

feeling calm= only initialy 1 to 2 days
good sleep= no change pre and post remedy.
proper energy level= 5% improvement in energy
self control= 10% improvement
confidence level= 10% improvement
freshness on waking up= no change.
love and affection with others= 5% improved
mental freedom or freshness= 5% better
pain= No change. The intensity keeps changing between days.
Any other change you felt= I feel this initially helped me with the anxiety and overall mood when I ingested it for the first time. But didn't see any significant perceptible improvements in pain. However with the subsequent dose didnt see the same effect on the anxiety/mood.

Please let me know the next course of action.

Should I try with 1M or increase the frequency of 200c dose.

By the way I am from India.

And just how did you conclude I was rogue??
Bcoz I guessed your symptoms as per ayurveda??or guessed your location??

Thats all you have against me....
 
teupne1 5 years ago
Many people do not like any interference in their thread- as they see their thread as being in the office of the prescriber.

Best to make a new thread and ask your questions direct to prescriber.

I think "rogue" means an unexpected
Element appearing- that is not ok with OP.

Then at least warn me once clearly .I can take a hint.Dont just suspend out of the blue .All my posts are well intentioned to help people .I don't use offensive language.

Dear novicehomeo

I second guessed your symptoms as per ayurveda vata dosha to elicit response/confirm diagnosis.I guessed your location after thoroughly reading your post.Is that bad? Was I offensive?
 
teupne1 5 years ago
no, this does not seems the right remedy.

will analyize the case again in 1-2 days.

feeling calm= No
good sleep= No
proper energy level= Low
self control= Low
confidence level=Low
freshness on waking up= Low
love and affection with others= Low
mental freedom or freshness= No change pain= No Change
any other change you felt= I got a severe sore throat which required antibiotics and I did take belladonna 30c parallely for 2 days which has now got resolved with in 2 days.

Do you recommend to watch and observe for few more days. Somehow my feeling was better with Causticum (atleast definitely on the mental symptoms)
 
novicehomeo 5 years ago
you should not take any other homeopathic medicine like belledona in between.

ok take causticum as before and report improvement.
