34weeks pregnant Insomnia and persistent heartburn Page 3 of 16

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I’ve got a doctors appointment tomorrow morning since I can’t kick this phlegmy cough that seems to be coming from my lungs.

MEANWHILE— I thought I’d put my current symptoms up in case there was a remedy I could take to augment treatment.

After taking Arg N. I woke up feeling very groggy, and the stuffy nose continues.
I’ve been sleeping hard through the night, which is good, but the sleep seems to never be enough. I am exhausted all day and end up needing a nap around 2-3pm and I sleep for a couple hours. Just in time to eat dinner and go to bed. No trouble going to sleep after such a long nap either.
I continue to be all but repulsed by hot food and drinks, very much preferring ice water, or very cold beverages. Still have a sore throat, especially after sleeping.
I feel very tired and weak after taking a hot shower; normally I really enjoy a hot shower, but I can’t right now since it makes me feel so lethargic.
This cough starts with a tickle kind of in my throat and I cough hard until I can’t breathe anymore, or there’s a bit of movement of the phlegm...it seems to move up and out but not significantly.
I still don’t really want to be touched, I don’t even really have the patience to allow the poor cat to sit on my lap. I just feel claustrophobic and agitated whenever he tries...or when my son tries to climb on me, too. :(

Good news—I do not have congestion/phlegm in my lungs.

As per dr's diagnosis or as per your feeling that there is no congestion in lungs?

Are you seeing any improvement on mood/energy/sleep?

Doctors diagnosis. No congestion in my lungs.

Not really seeing any improvement in those areas...sleep is kinda better, but I have to wonder just how much better if I’m so exhausted during the day. I sleep hard and barely move during the night. And no trouble falling asleep either.
My congestion is a little bit better each day, but I continue to be extremely fatigued.
Yesterday evening I noticed my ankles and feet were quite swollen. Since the doctor took my blood pressure and it was perfect earlier in the day, I’m assuming it’s normal pregnancy swelling...but it’s not normal for me. I never had any with my first pregnancy, and this is the first time with this one. This morning the swelling was mostly gone, but now by the end of the day it’s back, and it’s all the way up my calves.
Mood is about the same as well.

You could try augmenting the treatment with LYC. If you are not sensitive, use upto three doses of 200c potency leaving a minimum of 8 hours between doses---can spill over to next day.

I am extremely sensitive to homeopathic remedies.
I will not do more than a single dose of a single remedy, and then wait and watch.

Thanks. I’ll try lyc.

If you are sensitive, then you may try doses in water---even a few succussions(shaking the bottle gently and hitting the bottle against the innerside of the other palm in the downward motion) will progressively increase the potency very slightly and since no subsequent dose will be the same in potency as the earlier dose, this gentle dosing may be of help.
 
maheeru last year
I always take my doses in water.
Succussion or not, i still will not take multiple doses....unless the symptoms call for it.
There’s no way to know whether they do, until we have waited and observed changes.
I’m not trying to be argumentative here, I did make myself clear in the beginning of this thread and throughout— one remedy, one dose, wait and watch. Classic Homeopathy.
I have my own beliefs about the use of homeopathy, as do you, and each and every other person on this forum. That does not mean I am arguing and challenging every suggestion. (Yet you interpreted it this way)
I just really wish that a)people could respect my stance, and b)that I could find someone on here who prescribed in this way.
I can see that this is a rare occurrence.
Once someone suggests this type of prescribing (multiple remedies and/or multiple doses) it makes me lose trust quite quickly, and then I feel the need to be extremely cautious and somewhat defensive.
It’s very frustrating to have to take this on. I very much prefer to just follow and trust, but I can’t do that when I know something isn’t right.

I respect your stance Rom109. Rarely do people demand classical homeopathy and adherence to fundamentals.

It's nice to know you use medicines in water. I do not know if you have read Organon 5 or 6 editions or books that expand on these editions or been associated with related learning. Wait and watch is a strict requirement for dry doses. For wet doses, wait and watch at the initial period is not necessary unless the situation demands it, with wet doses and LMs in water, aggravation is going to be accumulated and happen in the last leg of the treatment unlike in the case of dry dose where aggravation can start with the initial dosing itself. The advantage of wet C doses and LM doses is that-----to make them gentle and diluted so as to repeat them as necessary even if the interval is short. And we can make these doses still diluted using dilution cups and still if the patient is hyper sensitive then we can go for sniff doses.

Multiple remedies is not the same thing as multiple doses within a reasonable limit.

I have already explained that a particular emotional rubric was picked and it's not a judgemental call. Homeopaths can interpret rubrics from a patient's talk, gesture, body language, writing, mannerisms etc. It's totally classical way of doing things.

If you prefer to wait and see the action of single dose that's fine with me.

Or if you want to follow another advice that you can trust, all the best.

Thank you very much for that information. I really appreciate it. I have read the 6th organon, and I have been sticking with what I understood from it, so as to be safe.
What you’re explaining makes sense, and again I really appreciate you taking the time to share knowledge witH me. I know I can be difficult.

I have taken one dose of lyc 200c in water—it’s been 48 hours. I’ll let you know how it’s going in another day and we’ll go from there.

wet or dry ..each dose is be observed.monitored as to response....even if repeated daily...so as ascertain new symptom occur or change in symptomology in any way..'c' LM' 'x' same rule for any form med prepped..
 
John Stanton last year
as well each and every subsequent dose (same med) must be modified form previous dose..

John Stanton — your suggestions are not welcome here.
