Rhus Tox and ArnicaHello,
I took Rhus Tox 30C 1 dry dose (1 pill) for my neck pain that started after I used a different pillow to sleep all night long. I started having pain near my heart and shortness of breath after I took that dose. The pain lasted for an hour and it went away after I rested in bed, because I couldn't tolerate it any more. The pain returned again for the next 2 days and went away after resting for an hour. Today is Day 4 and I still feel slight pain but not as bad. Is this the side effect or aggravation caused by Rhus Tox? I use homeopathy regularly, but this is the first time I've used Rhus Tox.
Similar symptom happened a couple months back when I took Arnica (30C 1 dry pill) for muscle strain after walking all day long in the zoo. Can anyone please confirm? Thanks a lot!

A kind bump. I am still going through aggravation symptoms. So I took the Rhus Tox on Feb 26th (Exactly 1 week back). The pain near heart is mild now, but I only get it after dinner at night. I still have slight shortness of breath all day long, but it increases after dinner when I get the heart pain. I also started showing symptoms of sore & scratchy throat since yesterday. I have labored breathing and I have been coughing up some phlegm. Please help!
mvcivil 9 months agoThere's no possibility for Rhus Tox or Arnica to create such symptoms. The better way is to work out remedy that covers present symptoms in totality.
♥ kadwa 9 months agoDear Dr. Kadwa,
Thank you sir. Can you please suggest a remedy for my case? So, after taking Rhus Tox for neckpain, the pain is completely gone now after 2 weeks. But I started having shortness of breath but it intensifies every night starting 8pm to 1 am. Last week I also started having sore throat and cough. I treated the sore throat with Merc Viv 30C dry doses for 2 days 3 times a day. Cold symptoms also went down. At the moment I have slight pain in my right ear. A bad cough with little expectoration all day long, except in the morning I am able to expectorate a little thick tan color mucus. The chief complaint I have is the shortness of breath. I am worried that I may be developing asthma-like symptoms. I never had asthma in my life.
On another note I am dealing with a chronic UTI, which I am able to control with Cantharis 30C every now and then. But I am unable to get rid of it completely. I know I am not dosing the remedy correctly, still learning sir!
I mostly use homeopathic to treat acute illnesses for my family. They work for us. I am still trying to learn how to match symptoms and dosage. We live in Usa, so I don't have a homeopath available in this town. Please let me know if you need any more details to deal with my case. Thank you in advance for your time Sir!

mvcivil 9 months agoPlease take Sulphur 30 twice a day for 3 days and see how that affects over 10 days.
Phosphorus 30 may be tested later if your asthma like symptoms persists.
♥ kadwa 9 months agoI will take Sulphur 30C as indicated by you. Thank you Mr. Kadwa.
mvcivil 8 months agoDear Dr. Kadwa
I took Sulphur 30C as directed by you, I had significant relief of Asthma like symptoms in the past week. The symptoms are coming back since last night. I feel heaviness in my chest area, breathing harder than usual. Shortness of breath all day long but worsens at night (after 7pm). I couldn't eat much tonight. Slight pain near heart area. I am also starting to get bad cough, worsens at night. I have slight body pains now, feels like I am going to have a fever. Very chilly also. Would you suggest any changes to my remedy? Please let me know. I have most of the homeopathic remedies in 30C. But I will have to order any higher potencies if you suggest.
Thank you for your advice and time

mvcivil 8 months agoPlease repeat a single dose of Sulphur 30. If there is no relief within a week, please take a single dose of Kali Carb 30 and wait for a week for response.
