Yes arnica and hypericum in 30c. You can give one pill/drop of both two times a day for three days.

Ok I’m not really noticing any changes with the Puls.

Night sweats are still pretty bad, and my sleep isn’t great.
My sinuses are swollen now, on top of being sniffly. The burning is gone, though.

I do feel that now that the whole emotional drama about milk supply and babys weight gain has settled down, so has my irritability. Take that as you will, I suppose.

Also I am slightly concerned about the Goats Rue— it sounds like it becomes a dependent supplement, meaning if it brings back my milk, then if I stop taking it the milk will go away too. That’s not cool. I’d really like my body to just do what it is supposed to do.
It’s really stressful. I’m part because I hate swallowing pills, and I hate being forced to stay in a routine. So since I often go on strike from my daily vitamins, it would be detrimental to my milk supply if I forgot to take the Goats Rue at any point. :(
....just venting a little

Alfalfa being a MT and not a potency medicine may work like goat's rue. That is once stopped effects may come down but won't happen in every case.

When puls. does not improve milk sit. calc. is a choice.

But before choosing any med. would want you to give a note on current symptom profile after observing for a few days.

Currently my energy levels are pretty ok, despite the general lack of sleep. I have been thinking about it lately and I’ve come to the conclusion that I actually feel a little better when I have slightly less sleep. If I make my self get up early and go about my day I seem to have more energy than if I slept in til I felt I’d had enough sleep.
My cold is going away. It’s mostly just some risidual mucous; have to blow my nose a lot — it’s just clear watery, and very loose. At night (last night especially) I have this irritating tickle in my throat making me cough as I’m trying to go to sleep.
Something that’s been bugging me for the last week at least: my joints ache in my feet and hands, also ankles and wrists. Particularly my toes and fingers. It feels hot and swollen and as if they need to be popped but when I try to pop them they are stiff and it’s just painful to stretch them.
Also my back has been extremely tight, particularly mid back and up to my neck, mostly the area in between my shoulder blades. It feels the same as toes/fingers.
My lips have been irritatingly dry lately, mostly my upper lip. That is starting to improve, though.
I’ve been craving sweet foods like crazy, and getting frustrated at myself because I end up eating so much of it, and not much proper food, like protein and healthy fats. I also go to snack out of boredom, not when I’m actually hungry.
I’m not fat or even overweight, I’m petite/average ... I just feel like I’m craving something unknown and I just end up eating sweet things like fruit and ice cream (non dairy) .... also really craving bread.
The weather has been getting warmer and the sun is coming out a bit more so the last few days I’ve felt inspired to get outdoors and do some gardening/yardwork. Really looking forward to summertime when I will want to be outdoors in my garden all the time.

—- I ordered some Alfalfa in 6x (the lowest they had—they were out of 2x) and also I saw that they had Goats Rue in 6x as well. Got it just in case.
I figure it would be a much better delivery system than herbal capsules.
I’m not intending to try them both at once, just to have them on hand in case it seems appropriate to take one route or the other.
I feel like my milk supply is increasing slowly. This morning my breasts were actually full feeling and a little sore.
It seems like there is significantly more milk in the morning and early day, and a lot less in the evening and at night. Judging by the way they feel, and primarily by how my daughter acts. She acts ravenous at night, and needs a bottle of formula. In the daytime she nurses and then falls asleep without taking her bottle. And sleeps for much longer stretches during the day, too.

Did I lose you?
rom109 last year
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 last year
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 last year
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 last year
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 last year
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 last year
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 last year
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 last year
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?
