thank you rishimba...i am giving below the details.

[describe all your physical and mental symptoms before, during and after the menses]

- due to the premenstrual pain, my mood gets upset and i feel like lying down..i need someone to care for me at this time...during periods-normally take rest for a day or so due to pain...i don't feel like to sit around to study...after the first day, i will be back in work...no pain.no stress

- physically i feel tired, both of my legs pain a lot during menses, the mild pain and disconfort in stomach starts about 3 or 4 days earlier.

- the pain i get every menses makes my mood upset one week ahead.

[are your periods always late or sometimes early as well?]

- it was irregular since puberty at the age of 14. the period varies at the maximum of one week. the premenstrual pain that makes me worry a lot.

- not early, but always delayed.

- the menses is of short duration, lasting for 1 or 2 days only. flow is scanty, colour normal, it was seems to be clotted a few months back, but now it is normal. no smell.

- breast pain - only recently,a month back, both breasts, spread over all place, feel uncomfortable with cloths and pain while walking

[describe your general mental set up ( nervous, moody, shot tempered mild etc.) and what are your cravings in food etc.]

- i like chacolates...but no craving for sweets....tend to eat whatever available, like more chilly stuff.

- i need someone to care for me always...but bold type.. can handle anything on my own...but, sometimes i got upset on things in which I am not given freehand to deal with.

- no problem at home..we are only two and i got one elder brother...everyone loves me a lot at home..

- but developed some kind of affection with a person since the last 6 months... can not be called bf... he takes care of me a lot and guides me a lot...he lives in a far away place.....i've to talk to him daily over phone..otherwise i feel upset...

[now, the acne, do you think these are related to your periods?]

- not so much since i've this period problem before acne breakout...but think may also be related to irregular periods...i had more acne three years back and it got reduced. i didn't take any treatment.

- ofcourse i used to have mild 2 acnes occasionally... but got worst after i went for a project work for 4 months to a seaside area..basically i live in a place far away from the sea.

have you ever noticed a yellow or brownish band across your nose when you are suffering with pain before your menses.

how do you feel when somebody consoles you during your tough times.

have you ever been anemic.

do you like being open air or in a room.

do you often bite your nails in nervousness

do you often feel a sensation in your stomach which i can describe as a ' ball' or ' everything crumpled in one'.

how do you feel when you wash your clothes. do you hate it or feel ok.

[have you ever been anemic]

- yes, a few years back and i was taking iron pills...but discontinued later

your remedy is PULSATILLA 30C
to be taken 3 times a day till the time you note an improved state of well being.

when you note the symptoms are improving, may be after 10 days, you can reduce the frequency to 2 times a day.

keep it going for some more days till you finally overcome the acne problem.

all your menstrual troubles will also be cured and your sleep will become normal.

best wishes.

rishimba!
thanks for the suggestion. by the way pulsatilla 30c in pills or tincture form..then how many pills or drops to be taken per dose? please let me know...thanks again
 
lemee last decade
if you are taking wet dose then one dose will be 2 drops of the dilution in one teaspoon of clean water.
try to sip it slowly so that it gets absorbed in the mouth itself.

if you are taking pillules, take 4 to 5 pillules under the tongue and let it dissolve by itself, dont bite.

clean mouth, empty stomach, no eating 1 hour before or after, avoid to much sweet, sour, coffee or any food with sharp smell.

thank you rishimba..I'll get back to you after a week

i have taken PULSATILLA 30C pillules for two days i.e. on 2nd and 3rd and i got headache and pain in both eyes and my upper eyelids and part above were swollen since 3rd afternoon. i stopped taking pulsatilla 30c and the headache stopped and swollen eyelids become normal. yesterday night i got pain on the back of my head. but alright in the morning. Got any idea of what is happening in me? Shall I continue pulsatilla 30c after a couple of days in reduced dosage? please advice.
 
lemee last decade
if the headaches are connected to PULSATILLA, as you are telling, it may be an over-reaction of the body.

dont worry, its a good sign that the remedy is working and its proper for you.

give a gap of 1 or 2 days and then take 2 times a day for some 15 days.

when is your this month period expected. take the remedy upto the end of your periods and note

- pains
- moods
- how many days the flow lasts.

if things improve, take 1 dose a day till your acne is gone and periods run normal.

best wishes.
 
rishimba last decade
thank you rishimba for the prompt advice. i believe that the symptoms were due to Pulsatilla 30c as they have gone after i stopped it. i forgot to mention that i took only two doses-morning and night- on 2nd (i was not able to take the afternoon dose)and on 3rd morning 1 dose. due to the development of pain i stopped it after that. i will continue after a couple of days. my period is around 26th. i'll make a note and let you know. thanks again.

Yeah, I started Pulsatilla again one dose per day and its almost one month since then. i've no aggravations. but acne started reducing a lot. i only get small pimples now. the bigger one have gone. but i got scars. things have improved a lot. thanks to rishimba. my premenstrual pain has reduced and i felt comfortable this time. i thought of coming back next week. since you have asked i am posting this.

rishimba!

i am continuing pulsatilla 30 one dose every day. i find lot of improvements in acne and as well in my periods. This time i didn't have discomfort during the periods, though i got stomach pain on the first day. period was normal this time. No leg pain. i only get small white pimples now and it leaves scars. the bigger cystic like ones disappeared. once, when i was in a hilly area (cool place) i used a synthetic cream on my face..and it lead to more acne breakout. then i stopped using it. i seek your further advise...
 
lemee last decade
lemee,

its good to know that you have got overall improvement.

continue 1 dose a day till the acne is completely taken care of.

watch your next period and if they are normal, just taper off the dose to alternate days or twice a week. in this way your acne should also get under control.
 
rishimba last decade
rishimba!

it has been a good progress with pulsatilla. Thanks a lot. i already mentioned the status of acne previously.

but i feel now that my breasts have become small and soft. previously, before this acne problem, i didn't have firm breasts. though i feel comfortable with no pain now, i started worrying as if my breasts are getting small. is it normal in such cicumstances?

Also, i just ran out of pulsatilla and the replacement hasn't arrived in time. I am waiting for the past 4 days for the medicine to arrive. In these days, I didn't sleep in the night time. Normally, I sleep only very late night, by 1 or 2 a.m. or some times still later. But, for the few days I lost my sleep. I didn't feel tired or problems due to this. This makes me worry a bit. Can you please advise.

Last month premenstrual pain got worst. but this month it was not much painful. i stopped pulsatilla since i am unable to get any feedback from you. acne comes up, but not that much worst. occasionally one or two big ones appear. otherwise small white ones only. please advise.

i forgot to mention that i got fainted once during the previous period time due to intense pain. And warm application on the stomach gave some relief.

I am waiting for your reply..thanks
 
lemee last decade
lemee,

you need to increase the potency of the remedy.

you are still a PULSATILLA girl and have the same basic symptoms.

take PULSATILLA 200C after every four hours.

you will take it for a long time, till you next periods. you will notice considerable improvement in you acne and periods.

you can taper down the dose once you feel good improvement.
 
rishimba last decade
thank you rishimba. I'll try and get back to you after a month
