Sorry about the late reply, just got all major blood work done and all came ok except the Potassium is slightly high and cholesterol was previously slightly high, not checked this time.

The responses to your queries is below:

Any other health issues?
Time to time she feels pressure/fluids in her ears
Headaches - Sinus headache on the full head including pain in the eye sockets, worse on waking up and better as the day progresses, worse on lying down, better with motion. However, certain days it increases and either she tries to bear it or end up taking pain killers.
General weakness,
Low on energy
Very poor digestion, eats very little, gets rarely hungry.
Bowel movement everyday but still stomach does not feel clean
Majority of the time stool is floating
Lots of acid when stomach is empty
Gets exhausted while talking to someone either in person or over the phone. Sometimes even feels body temperature rising, thermometer temporarily shows low grade fever. This happens even when she is taking to her friends casually. Becomes ok after an hour or two.

Osteoarthritis on the knees, it started abt 8 year as ago and progressively getting worse. Knees pain all the time and worse on movement. Cartilage is worn out as per the knee specialist.

Body aches in the whole body especially the upper legs.
Pain in the right hip joint, it has just started hurting in last few months.
Cholesterol on high side
loss of focus/ attention
Pale skin, physically on skinny side / small body frame, looks weak.
Dry frizzy hair

Any treatment for this: Allopathy did not help, no help available in the local area homeopathically or Ayurveda wise.
Her thoughts strong like and dislikes worries how does she feel about herself like a story as it come to her mind:

Very laid back personality, can not express her emotions, lack of self confidence. Can not face anyone in the conflict, she rather be left alone than arguing with anyone. Gives up very easily, very accommodating, can not put her point across.
In general gets along with everyone, Never have or had any fight or conflicts with any of her friends or relatives through out her life.
She prefers warm, salty food over cold and sweet.

The above is in her words.
Appreciate the assistance, thanks for all the help!

I have quite a few/decent amount remedies at home in various potencies. Can buy some in the health stores nearby. Any special ones will have to be ordered and can take a few days. No issue on remedies.

I have Apis Mel 30 & Aur Met 200 at home. Can she start with that? I doubt that I will be able to get Apis Mel 200 at local stores and can special order but can take a few days.

So if I understand clearly both the remedies are to be taken together, I mean same day, Apis during day & Aur Met at bedtime, correct? I can have her start Aur Met 200 tonite and start with Apis Mel 30 tomorrow morning till I find 200, please confirm / advise.

Pulsatilla 200 2-3 drops early morning half an hour after lunch twice day
How is her sleep? Pre and post Aurum.
Kaps 11 months ago
Will start her on Puls 200. How many days to do that?

Her sleep is light. She gets up twice in the night to urinate.
She falls to sleep quickly after lying down. She wants to calm her mind, play some Word game or do meditation before going to sleep.

No change in sleep after Aurum.

One more thing, she never sweats, even in hot summer. Maximum She may feel muggy in the skin but no sweat. Her hands and feet are generally cold. Hunger is low.

Pulsatilla to be given for four days post symptoms when u feel there is change
Kaps 11 months ago

Ok, she started off with Puls 30 as we were waiting for the 200 potency. After 2 1/2 days of Puls 30 her congestion got worse so stopped for 2-3days till it became better, but no improvement was observed.
Started Puls 200 as directed and have taken it for 2 days now. Her throbbing headache on waking up was better but now back again same. No significant change in congestion so far. Her face/cheeks, area below eyes is actually worse than yesterday. Her eyes are burning since yesterday, old symptom but only when congestion is severe.

Her abdomen is really bothering her. When the stomach is a bit empty she feels her abdomen burning and liquid coming in her mouth and eyes. Another note, whenever she sits in meditation she feels stomach liquids coming up in her mouth and has to keep swallowing frequently. When her stomach feels better she does not observe these symptoms. Mentally she feels better when her stomach is better & has had a good bowel movement. Her bowel symptoms are same and same no hunger - rarely gets hungry but when her stomach acids start bothering her, she knows that the stomach is empty and needs to eat.
Please advise, thanks for all the help.

Stop all post after two days
Kaps 10 months ago
Following is the update:

Sinus Congestion: After taking Puls 200, she started feeling facial pain due to congestion and extreme stuffy feeling, this is over now. This used to happen before also during extreme congestion. The only improvement noticed is that the pulsation / throbbing feeling in the head is not happening currently. She feels that there may be some loosening up. No taste or smell, same.

Abdomen: She had a diarrhea type motion in the morning yesterday and today semi-loose. Abdomen has a lot of gas and she says that it does not get released. Yesterday, the acid / liquids coming up in her mouth did not happen, it did happen day before yesterday. Cannot say yet for sure on the abdomen discomfort, thinks that certain foods aggravate the issue. But still she is not felling hungry.
Upper portion of the legs / thighs still hurt, no change.
Mental's feel slight improvement, energy level is same.

Please advise, thanks for all the help.
