Frequent Diverticulitis / Small Bowel Blockage Episodes

Hi Can somebody help on the subject matter. I have other health issues too & need some help. I don't have homeopathic help around the area I live in the US.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Can you provide more info about your problems?

What are the symptoms of Diverticulitis and a bowel blockage?

1. Exact location ( affected organs)

2. Any Sensation ( eg. sharp pain, stubbing, dull, throbbing, etc)

3. Causation

4. When did it all start?

5. Are there any changes in your mental /emotional state since your illness?

6. What are the things which aggravate your symptoms?

7. What are the things which ameliorate your symptoms?

8. What other physical / mental symptoms do you have?

9. What time of the day do you feel the worst in general?

10. Are you taking any medication?

Then all he needs to do is look up Diver..... in some repertory and treat himself. I thought in your previous post you claimed Homeo was all about "symptoms".
jawahar 3 years ago
that is why i have not disclosed the name of the medicine for want of symptoms mr jawahar.

and i would not interfere in the case as it has been taken over by Tui.

I just responded to your query in the post.

However the main issue is diverticulosis and diverticulitis.

Before we get into the Diverticulitis issue, let me take help on an acute.

I am having left shoulder pain. Initially I thought that it is due to sleeping wrong way and may go away but no today is 3rd day and feeling miserable.

The left shoulder in the back, and arm portion below the shoulder in the back, close to the joint hurts. Cause could be sleeping posture or not sitting in an ergonomic position at work, computer below eye level. Also I have some herniated disc in the neck (no issues, no regular medication), which could be adding to the problem.

Some times it gets better, some times it is worse. I have been trying to do mind movement exercises for the shoulder which have not helped. If I press on it and hold, it feels better. Also if I just fold and support my left arm it feels better. The pain is not radiating but my whole left arm feels mild pain till the wrists. This is not heart problem.

I took Bryonia 30 one dose each for two days, don't even know if this is the correct remedy, I have not seen any changes. In general, it wakes me up after 3AM because of pain. I just got up and it pains quite a bit. I had a left leg-hip joint pain sometime back and could not walk and was suggested bryonia which had helped me. So that's why had tried Bryonia.

Thanks for the help.

I think the pain is more prominent on the left arm in the back, right below the shoulder joint.

The left shoulder in the back & the left arm back close to the shoulder is an issue. I tried Ibuprofen but did not help. On the internet it says the cause is herniated disc or pinched nerves.

The pain is strong and feels better when I support the folded arm.
RajanTX1 3 years ago
So putting pressure is better?

And moving arm is more painful?

Rajan appears to be a competent doctor.

on the arm pain, pulling the arm up and supporting it and putting pressure on it feels better.

The pain in the back shoulder also feels better when I fold the left up and support it. My sleep has been disturbed because whenever I lie down on the left side the affected shoulder area hurts but still it gets better and better if lying down the whole night. The pain / doscomfort starts increasing after getting out of the bed. Folding and supporting the arm helps.

Any suggestions, please let me know if u have any additional questions. I wish there was a way to expedite the help.
RajanTX1 3 years ago
Please take Rhus tox 30c, thrice a day for 3 days and report back any changes.

1 dose is 2 pills or drops.
Tui 3 years ago
Seems like Rhus Tox 30 may not be helping me out. The pain is strong. Ok as the pain was very strong and before I got the RTox, I tried to manage the pain with Ibuprofen and pain balms. As the pain was still strong In went to see a doctor, EKG was fine but the BP was high 164/88. Dr thinks it is muscular and may be related to sleep posture or herniated disc, and has prescribed pain killers and muscle relaxants. So yesterday the pain was manageable and I switched over to Rhus Tox (RT) and stopped the other medications.
I was able to sustain just on RT yesterday and thought was getting better. But the pain has been increasing, have hardly slept last night, BP feels huhi, probably bcz of the pain. I was hoping that with the RT the pain would not increase. I have taken the morning RT dose but not sure if I can survive on it.
Please advise asap.

What type of pain is it ? Burning, twitching, aching, throbbing etc?
And I understand your pain is better by lying on the painful side? And worse by motion?

Please describe it in details.
Tui 3 years ago
It is an aching pain coming in almost whole left arm and now sometimes coming in the middle of the chest. In the chest it feels muscular in the top.
Pain is better on lying down but NOT on the painful side, the other side. Yes worse by motion.
Is there an email I can have to reach u faster as it takes long to get a reply back in an acute. Because of the pain and discomfort my BP is 168/90 and heart rate 93. My normal BP is 130s/80 and heart rate of 68.
I am very concerned. One time when I had a diverticulitis episode and landed up in the emergency room in the night the BP was 200/100 and when the pain subsided my BP was normal 3ven without the regular BP medicine.
Thanks for the help

Do I need to be concerned, is this just muscular pain?
RajanTX1 3 years ago
I can't diagnose through online and I don't give out email address.

You should really go to see a doctor but meanwhile take Aconite 200c alternate with Spigelia 200c every 2 hours.

If the remedies doesn't give ANY relief within 24 hours, stop taking them, go to see a doc.

I had seen a doctor like I stated before and he prescribed pain killers and muscle relaxants. I did take these for 2 days and got much better, the BP became normal too.
After 2 days I decided to switch back to homeopathy for a permanent cure. I had Aconitum 30 and Spigelia 6, not the 200 potency suggested. It will be a special order, remedies are not readily available here in US. So took Spigelia 6 and Aconite 30 alternated for 1 1/2 days and thought I was getting better but yesterday afternoon the pain came back very severely back to the original state. I had been doing exercises for shoulder / neck and getting massage which helped.
So I am back today with muscle relaxant and pain killers, not sure if the homeopathic medicines did the aggravation or skipping the pain killers and muscle relaxants for 2 days brought back to the original condition.
Appreciate all the help

My concern is the same as your concern - Is it just a muscular pain?

Left side arm complain is often related to the heart problem....

I understand that you have already gone to see one doctor but maybe go to see other doc to get a second opinion, just to make sure nothing wrong with your heart.
Tui 3 years ago
No heart issue, checked with quite a few medical professionals. EKG was normal.
RajanTX1 3 years ago
It is probably coming from the herniated disc but shoulder problem is quite common and ugly. Don't know exactly where it is coming from , ie unknown cause.
RajanTX1 3 years ago
try Dioscorea 30c, up to 4 - 5 times a day for 3 days.

1 dose is 2 pills or drops.
Tui 3 years ago
I will have to special order it and can take 7-10days tk arrive, but somehow my symptoms don't match with those listed for this remedy.
RajanTX1 3 years ago

Take Sulphur 30c if you have it.
Also, Arnica, if you haven't had it yet.
