senior citizen - Extremely tired, body pain, lack of appetite, fullness of stomachhello,
my aunt is 67 years old and she is suffering a lot. she has had no success with homeopath she has consulted so far. i wanted to help and see if we can find a remedy matching her constitution.
general: average build, she is fair skinned and looks healthy, very calm, friendly, generally cheerful, soft spoken, intelligent, a very slow and methodical person, takes a lot of time for doing any chore (even at younger age), she was working as school teacher before retiring,
major complaint: extreme tiredness, body pain, indigestion, constipation,
stomach: she is able to eat a little in the morning (around 11 am), but after noon meals (4 pm) her stomach is bloated, feels heavy, drinking even a glass of water makes her bloated, flatus helps relieve her a little, no stomach pain but it feels enlarged, feels little hungry only in the morning otherwise no hunger. no vomitting, no belching, has constipation for which she now takes half tablet y-lax and half spoon duphalac. this helps her to pass stool in the morning. stool is hard. not much pain, (developed this problem in the last 6 months to 1 year)
body pain: her whole of body is painful, specifically her legs, hip and back, leg pain increases if she walks, when she lies down, the side on which lies down pains a lot, and she has to turn the other side, pain is however intermittent and not continuous. she says it is bone pain. also she has some kind of neuralgic pain starting from her feet (she says it feels like standing on a spring) and sometimes in her neck and it goes off on application of pain balm.
sometimes feels dizzy when she walks and lies down. she has anxiety and feels tensed (especially when her ailing husband is shouting) lately past 6 months her body has started sweating a lot. she has mouth ulcers and it goes off after taking riboflavin. feels sluggish in the morning and takes little coffee to start her day. her hands sometimes tremble when holding something like a coffee cup,
medical history: she had ear infection on left side when she was 13 or 14 years old, after this her hearing was very poor. when she was around 35 years old, her right ear was operated on and a small bone like growth was removed. after this she started hearing very loudly. at present her hearing is slightly reduced.
she used to have body pain during her younger years when she was working but not very severe.
around 6-10 years back her body, feet was swollen and she had hair fall, and so she started on thyroid-eltroxin 50. she is still continuing this.
please let me know if you need any further details..
thank you very much for your kind help.
