This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
After the last feedback I started again, so I had 5 doses in the last 2 days (this day including)
survivor2 3 years ago
Well, you had too many.

When did you start getting pain relief?

On dose 2???

In homeopathy , when you have a reaction, good or bad , you stop doses. That is because the remedy has activated a response.
It is never like allopathy where you just take a course of medication.

Yes it was after the second dose. Improvement lasted till night when I took the next dose.

I will also try the capsaicin method from Dr. Spencer because most of my pain is located in the gum area. Sounds logical to kill the c-fibres that produce the nerve pain. I hope it will not hurt too much that I can't get through the whole treatment. But what is one extreme pain for a short time against a life long daily torture? I will report here if it helps, wish me good luck. By the way, spring is coming up here in Austria, yeah!! :)
survivor2 3 years ago
What is the pain like today?

Nice that spring seems to be arriving early!
I used to live in Midwest USA, near Canada.
At first sign of spring( still cold) everyone comes out of their homes
With bright color summer clothes - they are “done”
With winter. Lol.

One of the best well wisher in this forum is Simone,helping every one selflessly.Giving genuine advises,take her seriously.

Simone: Pain was very mild today, not fully gone but nothing compared to yesterday where I even had problems concentrating on car driving. If it really was from the medicine than I underestimated the effect of homeopathy.

I'm definitely done with winter and according to the weather report there will come some cloudless sunny days. :-) I've already seeded some vegetables can't wait to see them growing up, I love gardening.

anuj: Yes it is good to know that there are still people out there in the world who do not only want to earn money with desperate patients. Your selfless help means a lot to me and I'm thankful for every advice. In hospitals you are often only a number of hundreds of patients and nobody really has time to take enough care. That's a serious problem nowadays. My brother works in a hospital and he says the Doctors (especially the new one) are overwhelmed with the amount of work they have to do in a short time. In the end the patients have to pay the price for that with inadequate treatments.

Thank you Anuj, I would say this applies to you also.

I think your choice of merc is effective , and
Dosing needs some adjusting to make sure
That merc is not rejected before it has a fair trial.

Hi survivor,
Please report tomorrow on pain levels. Then we can evaluate

Hi survivor,

Certainly you could make a new thread with Ibrahim,
If you wish,

However, the merc Anuj prescribed is having
An effect, and I believe thru monitoring your pain levels
That with adjusting doses and perhaps potency
Levels that this remedy should not be discarded
Until we see what it is capable of doing.
simone717 3 years ago
Hi everyone

Sorry for late response, I was quite busy the last days. But good news is the pain was not too bad in comparison to previous feedbacks. Maybe it's the sun and warm temperatures that also help a lot. I will not start a completely new thread at the moment. First I try the capsaicin method ten days long and afterwards I continue homeopathy if necessary. I'm afraid that it will antidote any medicine because it's really spicy. I will give a review when I'm finished guys.

survivor2 3 years ago

I am trying to get your dosing of merc right so that it heals you.
Feedback on time is needed to do that.

So - last time:
1. You had 5 doses of merc and it aggravated
Symptoms( too many doses )
2. Aggravation wore off and you had pain relief
3. Pain levels now are Less.

I would now take one dose of merc and report
Back after 24 hours. There may be slight aggravation
And then even less pain levels- or no aggravation
And less pain levels. This remedy seems to be
Helping and you have to observe in a step by step
simone717 3 years ago
Ok I will try one dose and report later.
survivor2 3 years ago
Update: I took a dose merc every morning the last 2 days. Things seem to aggravate again but I also do this high concentrated capsaicin treatment once a day for at least 20 minutes. So it's difficult to distinguish between the two remedys what aggravates or help. It's pretty tough but I hope it can do something for me. After 10 days I can say more because after that time the sick nerve fibres should die off.

Happy Sunday
survivor2 3 years ago
Do not take anymore merc . I had advised taking only
one dose to see the reaction and how long relief
Lasts and to see if pain levels hold at Lower levels.
Please update after you are done with the capsaicin.
simone717 3 years ago
Hi simone

I need your advice again. After one week of using capsaicin I don't think it is doing anything good to me. It is increasing blood flow to my cheek and that seems to put even more pressure on my nerves by swelling up the blood vessels. My jaw chattering and fasciculations in my left cheek also got worse. The capsaicin is overstimulating my nerves and I'm afraid of making everything worse from using it too much.
survivor2 3 years ago
Hi, ok . Stop using it and report what symptoms are
After 3 days.
simone717 3 years ago

Ok unfortunately the capsaicin treatment didn't work for me. The pain in my gums in upper jaw molar tooth area is the worst at the moment. Constant throbbing stinging pain in different pain levels throughout the whole day. Only when my skin on the cheeks turn hot and red the pain diminish for a time but when all calms down it comes back.

Further symptoms:

When I try to relax my mouth my jaw begins to chatter.

During shaving on the left face side I can feel that the nerves there are oversensitive.

Slight muscle twitching in left mouth corner

Try a test dose of cantharis 6c or 30c and write
About effect 8 hours after you take it. You can also
Get some calendula ointment or cream and use
That on your skin.
simone717 3 years ago

I got cantharis 6C yesterday and took a dose. Today the pain in the gum area was not too bad. Now I have it more deep inside the cheek and sometimes lower jaw area where I had the bruising marks. Nerves there feel inflamed. I took a tablet of Lyrica 4 days ago to calm down the side effects of the capsaicin. It's definitely not for my kind of pain.
survivor2 3 years ago
Take another dose of cantharis 6c today and tomorrow.
If you take a dose today and find pain increases
Then wait and report. Otherwise report what is going on
8 hours after second dose.
simone717 3 years ago
I took a dose as you have suggested and pain increased yesterday for some time. Today I had great pain relief about 50% better. :) Now in the evening throbbing pain is coming back

Take another dose. This time dissolve 3 pills
Or 2 drops in a cup of water. Stir it a few times
And then take a tsp as a dose.let it sit in your mouth
For 20 seconds. Report after a day.
simone717 3 years ago

I took one liquid dose but nothing better in pain after 24 hours
survivor2 3 years ago
Describe the pain in detail.

Is the pain the same intensity as before you took cantharis
The first time?
