Backache Causing Insomnia and Other Issues

Hello dr Anuj and anyone else that can help me.
I have back pain in my lower back that started a week ago. I was lifting my dog out of the bath last Sunday and noticed a slight ache pain in my back. As the afternoon and evening came I had pain in lower back in middle and going over to the left side of back just above hip bone. It continues around to the front on the left side and goes down to the top of my leg and thigh muscle. My left knee is also sore too. I get relief only by sitting bent forward or drawing my left leg up. Heat also gives relief. During the evening and night the pain is worse if I am standing or walking to the point that it is almost unbearable. I take naps in a chair in the evenings but cannot sleep in bed because stretching out straight is painful. So I sit in bed and lean forward to ease the constant dull ache.
I have been taking Silicea 30c since my last post and it has been a great help to me but now I am wondering what remedy to take going forward. I’m feeling frustrated with getting little sleep and hope that you can help me. If you need more information let me know. Thank you for your help.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.

Please take There doses. Just THREE doses. NOT DAILY.

Get the remedy in liquid:
Take 20 ML of water in a water bottle (dont use any other bottle) put 5 drops of the remedy in it, hit the bottle atleast 6 time (shaking the bottle is not enough) and keep it for 5 minutes and use 1 sip from it. do the same activity for next doses.

First dose: Early morning as soon as you get up, wash your mouth with plain water (dont brush), take the remedy.
Second dose: 12 hrs after the first dose.
Third dose: 12 hrs after the second dose.

If there is significant worsening of symptoms (called homeopathic aggravation) after the first dose, then don’t take the second dose.
Don’t take any other homeopathic remedy during this treatment.
Avoid eating/drinking any thing before or after 30 minutes of taking a dose.
During the treatment, don’t eat anything which you have never had all your life.

Sometimes the symptoms for which treatment is being done can worsen after taking the homeopathic remedy. This is homeopathic aggravation and a good sign. It usually dies down within 24-48 hrs. During this time you can use any non-medicinal means to keep yourself comfortable. If the aggravation seems excessive, you can use any & all means necessary (including taking allopathic medicines) to keep yourself comfortable. Keep your homeopath fully updated if this happens.

A good example of how to report your progress is by giving %age improvement or worsening for all your health problems e.g.
Emotions: e.g. Feeling of happiness improved 40%
Energy level: e.g. Feeling of tiredness reduced 70%
Main health problem: e.g. Nasal discharge reduced 50%
Other health problems: e.g. acne>Acne increased 60%
Anything new: Depression: e.g. Loose stool started
And so on list all your complaints.

Any cure in homeopathic treatment will always follow this rule (Hering’s Law of Cure) otherwise it’s not cure, just palliation. The cure must proceed from centre to circumference. From centre to circumference is from above downward, from within outwards, from more important to less important organs, from the head to the hands and feet.

If someone is giving several remedies, without waiting to see the effect of one remedy, then it is totally against the core principles of homeopathy. Such an approach is unlikely to give permanent cure, rather it may distort actual symptoms making subsequent cure even more difficult.

Dont drink water along with the medicine.

Note: Avoid Strong smell, Coffee, Raw Garlic, Raw Onion, Hing and Tobacco in any form.

Report back with the changes observed during this period.

I am taking Tylenol 325 mg in day and 500 mg in evening. I’m also using Traumacare cream by homeocan 2 times per day. Both are helping somewhat.
Sleep Insomnia 40% better because able to sleep in bed and get some rest.
Emotions Happiness improved 40% because I have someone helping me and I don’t feel so alone. I am able to do housework and like to talk to family members.
Anxiety is 40% because I want to do more work but must tell others to do many of the jobs and they don’t get done as fast as I used to do them. Frustrating and the others get angry when I tell them what to do.
