Severe osteoarthritis knee pain - To Dr MohlaMy mother, age 68 years, weight 70 kg has osteoarthritis since several years now and she experiences severe pain in both knees due to this. Requesting you to prescribe homeopathic remedies to manage and remove the pain
Details of it is described below.
Osteoarthritis Pain is observed in both legs knee area. Pain increases when there is more walking and exertion work like doing daily household chores continuously. When resting pain is still there but its better compared to when moving about during work, standing etc. Some times after sitting for long time she
finds difficulty in getting up and start walking as feeling of stiffness is there in the knees.Recently this
problem of finding difficulty in getting up and walking after long duration sitting is somewhat improved. Due to knee pain she cannot sit on floor as she finds difficulty in getting up later.
Pain observed in knees is almost a continuous pain and lot of swelling and inflammation is there in both knees along with pain. This swelling and inflammation increases after moving about and working for long time. But bending of knees is OK and is close to normal full bending limit. Only when there is inflammation in knees bending is effected slightly.Sometimes pain sensation is like there is a wound under the knees. Though pain is a continuous one some times there is throbbing pain also in both knees and in areas around the knees. At few times throbbing pain is felt in almost complete legs. This throbbing pain is worse when she sits after moving about and doing household work. Sometimes it subsides after taking rest for some time but many times throbbing pain continues even after taking rest. At times throbbing pain starts radiating above and below knees also and feels like pain is getting carried by nerves to other parts of leg and at such time if she is given homeopathic remedy Hypericum 6c or Mag Phos 6x it gives relief sometimes. When there is throbbing pain in knees and other part of legs Belladonna 30c also some times works. Pain is mainly concentrated in both knees and only when it is throbbing pain it starts feeling in areas around the knees. When there is throbbing pain the pain comes in pulses sometimes. like once a wave of pain will come, then subside and again next wave will come.
Most of the time pain is felt in knee and knee joints. Only when pain is throbbing in nature sometimes it is felt in areas around the knees also.
She has taken many homeopathic remedies like Bryonia 6c, Rhustox 6c, Arnica 6c, Arg Met 6c, Belladonna 30c, Hypericum 6c etc but some these remedies tend to give only temporary relief and at times they do not work.She has also taken biochemic salts like Nat sulph 6x, Ferr Phos 6x, Nat Phos 6x, Silicea 6x etc but they do not work to keep pain down.
ONE IMPORTANT POINT I WOULD LIKE TO HIGHLIGHT HERE IS THAT HER CONSTITUTION IS SUCH THAT SHE CANNOT TOLERATE EVEN MODERATE HOMEOPATHIC POTENCY OF 30c. TAKING EVEN ONE DOSE OF 30c POTENCY CAUSES AGGRAVATION FOR HER. SO FAR SHE TAKES MOST OF THE MEDICINES IN 6c POTENCY OR TAKES BIOCHEMIC POTENCIES LIKE 6X,12X etc.SOMETIME EVEN WITH 6c or 6X POTENCIES IF SHE TAKES CONTINUOUSLY FOR FEW DAYS THEN SHE EXPERIENCES SOME AGGRAVATION. I WOULD SAY SHE IS EXTREMELY SENSITIVE TO HOMEOPATHIC POTENCIES.
SO IF YOU ARE PRESCRIBING I KINDLY REQUEST YOU TO PRESCRIBE REMEDIES IN 6C POTENCY OR LOWER AS I AM AFRAID OF AGGRAVATION.
