Hyperacidity and left shoulder and Neck pain Page 2 of 1

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Hi Dr Tui,
A long time since my post.
Have being going through Ferrum Pic and Hydrangea for the last couple of months.
Passing of urine has reduced to 2 times and sometimes 3 times. If I happen to wake up in the night then typically I need to pass urine more often. Nowadays my sleep is not proper. Too many things on my mind. Sleep is not refreshed. My the way would Ferrum Pic and Hydrangea with the current dosage help in reducing my prostate gland.

By continuing Bryonia, the pains are a bit controlled. But the pains from the top back of the neck to the base of the neck and surrounding the neck and also upto the top of the rib cage there is a constant pain. Also the top part of the rib cage on both sides above the breast there is a constant pain along with oppressed breathing.

These 2 problems seems to persist.
Please review and advise.

Thanks very much and God Bless

It doesn't sounds like anything has improved since last month as you are still getting up in the middle of the night and the neck pain is pretty much the same as before?

Also you said you are not sleeping well. That's not a good thing because if you don't sleep, you don't heal.

I would like to know why you're not sleeping well and what is troubling you? Are you worrying about something or someone?

Also your neck pain; what kind of pain is it? Sharp pain? Does it radiates to other part of the body? And you've never told me how that's happened. Did you hurt yourself or had an accident or something?

To pass urine, I need to get up in the night. I go to sleep around 11.30 pm. By around 3.30 am, I get an urge to pass urine. Its like the pressure has built up. It flows very slowly for some time sort of dribbling and then by the completion time its flows a bit more that the initial flow. At time to relieve I have to give pressure to spurt. Once after that around 5.30 am need to get up again. By then I get up and freshen up to go for my morning walk.

Both my children have lost their job because of the current economy situation in India. I have retired almost 1.5 years back and presently jobless. The financial strain and the children's helplessness worries me.

The neck pain is persistent. Not sharp or shooting.sort of radiating. Its along the neck and collarbone part. From the top of the back side of the neck to the base and around the neck and shoulder and towards the further lower front top part of the rib cage. It was not because of any accident. Probably have been driving for a long time which has taken a toll on the neck. Don't know whether it is spondilitis?

By the way forgot to add- a burning sensation in the stomach. Have taken 2 doses of Carica Papaya. Hasn't given me any relief until now.

Hope it helps in diagonising. Do let me know if further information is required.

Thanks very much.

If it is not a Sharp pain then do you feel stiff or sore or dull pain?
Can you move your neck or raise your arm ? And do you feel pain when you move?

How long do you have this pain ?
And have you checked with your doctor about it?

You have mentioned 3 problems so far but which problem is bothering you or concerning the most at the moment?

Hi Dr Tui,

Many thanks for very promptly reviewing my case. All 3 problems are equally important.
I don't know how to prioritize. You be the best judge.

The shoulder and neck pain is a dull pain. Whether I move or sitting, the pain is present. Both sides of the neck trapezius muscles are pretty stiff. Applying pain gel (heat) gives me a bit of relief.
I am able to move my neck as well as move my arms. Probably will go for a check up on Monday/Tue.

Hope it suffices and thanks very much.

Please stop taking all the remedies as they are not helping you in any way.
And start with;

Digitalis 6c and Mangifera indica 6c twice daily for 4 weeks and report back if any changes.

1 dose is 2 pills or 2 drops.

Hi Dr Tui,

Thanks very much for your continuous support.

Would both this medicine take care of all the 3 problems or are you addressing any specific problem. My hyperacidity is not controlled by Carica papaya. Yesterday night I had a severe bout. Had to take Panteprazole and Eno(fruit salt). Could only sleep after 1am. Had a real fright. Worried stiff with palpitations and oppressed breathing.

God bless

For the hyperacidity, please take Arsenicum album 3c in liquid form 15 minutes before having lunch and dinner.

Hi Dr Tui,

The lowest potency we get is 6C. Should I go for it?

Thanks very much.

Hi Dr Tui,

The past few days have been taking Ars Alb, Digitalis & Mangnifera Indica as advised by you. Have observed a few concerns that have come up.

1. While on my morning walk, any steep climb I feel an oppression. Breathing is restricted. Have undergone ECG a few days back when my acidity was severe. The ECG is normal.

2. A persistent burning pain at the front tip and along the urethra which came up yesterday.

3. Frequent urge in the day time to pass urine. The quantity of urine passed is less. Also the urine flow is restricted. Force of the urine flow is very less. Probably due to the enlarged prostate gland. The last I checked 2/3 months back was 74cc

4. In the night around 4.0AM, I get up with an urge to pass urine. It takes a while for the flow to start. The flow till the end is too much restricted. A little more than dripping of urine goes on till the end. After that around 5 to 5.30 am, again an urge comes up. The flow and quantity of urine passed is better than the first time I woke up to pass urine.

5. Whenever I carry any weight, typically my top of the shoulder around the left part of the neck pains. On applying the gel, the heat of the gel, I get a bit of relief.

Its only a week since I started taking the medicines. Still 3 weeks to go.

Please review and thank you so much

Which symptoms are the new symptoms? Or are you having an aggravation of existing symptoms?

Anyway you can stop taking all the remedies until the symptoms subside.
Tui 22 hours ago
The symptoms are nothing new. These problems have resurfaced now. Just identified the reasons for the problems.

As you said will stop taking the remedies for the time being.

How long should I stop the remedies or when should I restart?
The same medicines you have prescribed or would you start a fresh.

Thanks a tonne.
