Mother (66yo) suffers from painful cramps, stretched-painful nerve and osteo-arthritis

Hi,

Wondering if homeopathy might hold some relief for my mother. She has been under great distress in form of pain and discomfort due to:
- Osteoarthritis of knees (well established through X-ray, MRI)
- Sciatica or similar pain that runs down entire stretch of leg from him to toe, with itching, periodic numbness, feeling of nerves being stretched, or nerves feeling contracted lengthwise (was established to be linked to pinched nerve due to lower 2-3 spinal discs)
- Very frequent cramps in lower limbs. Mostly happens in evening and through the night, but on some bad days, happens even during daytime, that too on both legs together, to the point that she freezes up crying, trying to hold on to the wall.

She is on hypertension medication, high urea medication, heart palpitation medication, apart from periodic set of pain-killers she tries to avoid but often becomes unavoidable due to intense pain. Those are allopathic medicines.

Due to painkillers, her stomach is often upset. She is overweight, but due to her knee issues, her mobility is limited for the last several years.

thanks,

Sir,

Thank you for your response. One thing I forgot to mention was that most of her issues with nerves, itching, numbness are more on "right" side of her body -- less on "left" side.

Now to answer your specific questions:

- Few days back she was having oedema of her right foot below knee, including ankle and up to the toe. Knee itself, she says she is unsure if there is continuous oedema. Allopathic medication seems to have reduced this oedema.

- Motion aggravates things, both from the bad knee and the stretchy/tight nerves. State of rest is better, but she gets the itching and periodic numbness sensation while lying down too.

- Heat does help sooth her a bit. Earlier she used to say that pain reduced, but she feels that it no longer reduces but she does feel little comfortable with heat. Cold does seem to aggravate pains.

- Open air or otherwise -- mother couldn't really answer it well. Mentally/psychologically open-air/outdoors takes her mind off the pain/discomfort for sometime. That's all.

- Aggravates on touching and applying pressure.

thanks,

Thank you sir. I have NUX VOM 200, but will need to procure KALI LOD 30 and KALI MUR 6X. Given the Covid-19 lockdown, might need a few days to procure, and will start course on procuring all medicines to report back.

However sir, could you please confirm my understanding about daily dosages to be as follows:

Day#1:
NUX VOM 200 - as advised (not repeated on Day 2,3,4)
KALI LOD 30 - as advised thrice daily
KALI MUR 6X - as advised thrice daily

Day#2,3,4:
KALI LOD 30 - as advised thrice daily
KALI MUR 6X - as advised thrice daily

Regards,

Sir, also I noticed that KALI MUR 6X is not available currently. Would double dose of KALI MUR 3X work ?
 
falcon74 last week
Give KM 3X three times a day five tabs.If you have Mag Phos 6X then in addition give 3 TIMES FIVE TABS,till you are able to procure KI.
