Did I lose you?
rom109 2 years ago
Nope. Usually my turn around response time is between 3 to 4 days but i have responded sooner sometimes. So no response for a few days is not a problem.

I wanted you to write symptom profile after observing for a few days. But you have given a quick update.

So you think puls. is not helping(no visible/discernible change) and is not worth repeating at this point?
maheeru 2 years ago
Lol oh ok. Sorry. I can wait a few more days and update again.

And to answer your question, no I don’t think there were any improvements with the last dose of Puls.
rom109 2 years ago
So the night sweats have lessened quite a bit. My feet and torso seem to sweat still, and I feel cold but cant stand the heat of the blankets.
The aching joints and muscles are the same/worse. It’s moved up from my feet and my knees ache too. This is worse from warmth and doesn’t really go away after motion. The aching comes and goes through the day, but is definitely much worse at night in bed.
My cold is gone.

Energy is about the same as I said before...
rom109 2 years ago
Any thing changed from your last but one update? Does that post hold good now?

Joint aches---is this the first time you experience this or is this an old issue surfacing back now?
maheeru 2 years ago
Yeah, it’s about the same still. Night sweats are about gone, I think. The joint pain is new. Don’t think I’ve ever experienced it before.
My evening tiredness/grogginess is returning. The last two evenings around 4-6pm I have needed to take a nap. I feel much better afterwards with a burst of clear energy in the late evening. This is pretty standard for me in general. It was gone for the first few weeks post partum. Was wondering how long it would take for it to return.
rom109 2 years ago
oops i meant the long post made six days ago and not the literally last but one which i should have explained properly.

"The last two evenings around 4-6pm I have needed to take a nap. I feel much better afterwards with a burst of clear energy in the late evening. This is pretty standard for me in general. It was gone for the first few weeks post partum. Was wondering how long it would take for it to return."

Do you see it as a negative or a positive?
maheeru 2 years ago
Oh, lol.... well the last smaller update was an update to the long post so lol

The sleepiness is definitely a negative. It feels like a very unnatural grogginess. I feel lethargic and weak and uncontrollably sleepy and sort of powerless. So I just lay down on the couch and fall asleep.
I’ve been trying to explain this to people for so long and so many times .... :(
rom109 2 years ago
Ok rom 109 i asked if it's negative or positive because you said after you wake up, you generally felt well and had energy after that time window.

Next i think you can use Sulph. What potency do you have off this medicine? Even for those who are not sensitive this can be strong. So you can not take it just like that. How about sniffing the dose? Have you ever done that?
maheeru 2 years ago
Sorry for misunderstanding your question.
Yes the way I feel after that nap is good. Positive. I guess I was just focusing on the negativity of the reason I felt the need for a nap and the frustration of feeling so much better afterwards in the late evening when the day is over and it’s time to go to bed....

I believe I have sulph in 6, 30, and 200c
No I have never sniffed a dose, but I have taken sulph before.

rom109 2 years ago
What was the problem you took sulph. for and how did you react to it? How was the tolerance level for the doses? Which potency was it?
maheeru 2 years ago
I honestly don’t remember what all exactly was going on at the time. It was most likely a poorly chosen remedy at the time. I don’t remember how I reacted to it.
It was most likely 30c
rom109 2 years ago
ok. You can prepare a wet dose of 125 ml water+sulph. 30c two pills/drops in a disposable jug or water bottle----leave a couple inches on the top empty so that there is some air inside. Seal it with a tight cap. Can add a teaspoon of medicinal alcohol or apple cider vinegar to this solution.

Take one deep inspiration or breath keeping the bottle close under the nostril, don't exhale into it though. As soon as one breath is taken, close the cap.

One deep inspiration will be one dose. Just before taking the sniff, succuss *that is* shake the bottle up and down for two times.

Take this early in the morning before consuming anything else.

If you have doubts ask.
maheeru 2 years ago
So I made the dose night before last with the intention of taking it in the morning as instructed, but I completely forgot what I was doing halfway thru the process and just went ahead and did the sniffing dose right then. I hope it didnt jeopardize the efficacy of it at all.
Anyway, the next morning I just feel slightly more irritable and impatient.
I’ll keep you posted.
rom109 2 years ago
Still no changes.

The other day my husband confronted me about something that has been going on for a very long time though. I must have just accepted it as normal, but really it’s an issue.
I have a certain level of anxiety that manifests as bad thoughts/fears involving my kids. If they’re not in my sight it’s much worse. For example if my son is outside with his dad I will all of the sudden start imagining some terrible accident happening, thinking that my husband has not payed attention to where he’s wandered off to and something has happened. I can’t even fully describe the things I imagine. It makes me feel sick and painicky. The thoughts are so vivid that the emotion builds up and becomes a real possibility in my mind and I have to go check to make sure he’s still ok out side. I can’t control the thoughts; the pop in my head so fast and it’s very hard to stop them.
It’s also become so bad that in my thoughts I’ve imagined my husband being so absentminded that I’ve become bitter and angry towards him as though he has really done what I imagine/fear.
I had forgotten that when my son was born this anxiety/ fear got really bad then too.
All of this is prior to dose of Sulph.

I am afraid for myself that I will lose track of the kids. That my level of awareness will fade even for a moment. So I’m in this state of hyper-awareness constantly. It is exhausting.

Bumping up
rom109 2 years ago
You mean this major anxiety is there before sulph ---but since when?
new or old symptom? Why did you skip this in the note post Puls.(this is to understand if the problem has increased very recently)?

maheeru 2 years ago
Like I said I just must have excepted it as normal and not been thinking about it as an issue or even acknowledging it at all. Sometimes I just don’t think of saying things because they don’t occur to me. Sorry. This has been going on since my son was born 2 1/2 years ago. It has become much worse since my daughter was born, maybe even a little before. You can fit that in anywhere you like with remedy doses, I personally do not believe that it had anything to do with remedies.
Again, like I stated, sometimes things just don’t occur to me and I don’t know why I think of them later to say, and think to myself, maybe this is relevant. and I’m sorry that the timing is poor, or didn’t come up when it probably should have. that’s my brain.
rom109 2 years ago
ok. If four or five days have passed since the last dose, succuss the bottle two times and take one more sniff as a dose.
maheeru 2 years ago
I really feel like your last response was a little thoughtless. I noted in my post about the anxiety how far back it’s been, and why would you ask if it’s new or old if I just said it’s been going on for so long?
Also kind of hurtful to ask why I didn’t talk about it before. I told you why. In the post I explained that even my husband had to confront me about my subconscious treatment of him.
Post partum emotional states can be volatile and sensitive. I kind of feel like you reacted frustrated towards me for the timing of this, when I just opened up a lot. It took a lot to share that.

Also why am I taking a second dose of sulph if there have been no changes?
rom109 2 years ago
I appreciate your opening up Rom109. But like a good detective homeopath needs to ask certain questions to get the right information. I needed to understand the background of this anxiety/panic which you mentioned in the post two days ago. I also have to evaluate if it came on after taking any medicine.

I'm advicing sulph. again as i feel it continues to be indicated. Often one dose won't be enough to judge a medicine's action. 30c was just to assess your reaction if there is any. My idea is to use 200c. Since sniffing dose has not yielded any change, for 200c i'm thinking of wet dose again with two dilution cups.
maheeru 2 years ago
I think the anxiety is under control since talking with my husband. Everything has been much better between us since we talked. It seems like we are on the same page again, and more connected. We had a long stretch of time where we were not really talking or anything intimate like that. That alone can break down trust. Trust is a huge issue for me.

I’ve been taking Kratom for my energy pain and mood and it’s helping tremendously. Without it I kind of sloth around, or bounce from one idea to another by wandering around the house, half starting a project and then walking away, forgetting why I got up and starting something else. Getting nothing actually accomplished that way.

Last week I ate way too much nut mix with peanuts, pecans, almonds, sunflower seeds, craisins, chocolate pieces, and candy corns. All of the sudden the other day my stomach started hurting furiously from it. A dull aching that moved up my back into my shoulders even. I thought it was back pain, but then I took some antacids and it subsided.
A bite of peanut butter sets it off again. :(

I’ve got some acne on my chin and forehead that hasn’t happened in a while
rom109 2 years ago
Were you able to take another sniff dose of sulph. 30?

How are other symptoms

Joint pains, sweating at night, sleeplessness, deficient milk?

Good that you tried to open talks to have a handle on anxiety!
maheeru 2 years ago
I did try a second sniff dose.

Night sweats have subsided since a week or two ago and joint pain mostly. Still sweat a lot just in armpits. But not just at night.

Milk situation is still the same.
Sleep fluctuates depending on baby.

rom109 2 years ago
How would you rate the action of second sniff dose? Positive, nothing, negative in terms of feeling and action?

Joint pain mostly subsided?

Are you continuing that herb for milk?
maheeru 2 years ago
I think the sniff dose did nothing.
Joint pain is gone.

I am taking the Motherlove More Milk Special Blend tincture. 1-2ml 3x’s a day. Plus drinking Mothers Milk Tea. I think the combo helps me barely keep up with the demands of my little one. Still producing more at night. She still needs at least 8oz of formula thru the day.

So the last week I’ve been noticing her being extra clingy and fussy, especially while nursing, and wanting to nurse more often. I didn’t think much of it till now. But now with that, the acne, and this morning I woke up in a terrible mood, and it all makes sense because my period has come today.
My mood is very irritable- anything is too much. Noise, questions, other people’s problems...everything my toddler is doing is bugging me....no patience. Snappy. Frustrated.
No pain associated with it thought.

We’ve also all come down with a cold. Started with my son- he’s had it since Sunday. Now my husband and I have sore throats and burning sinuses.
