But there has been periods of time when I have been feeling better. But 1,5 year ago I had an infection with fever and throat pain and after that my joints are aching and sometimes they are swollen. I also have a TMJ disorder with radiating pain in the face, jaw, and neck,

What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings? I feel that I am in a heeling process probably due to the homeopathic remedies I have been taking. It,s like many old stuff is coming to mind and a lot of old feelings to deal with. I feel like I am cleaning my inner space up…I have a lot of suppressed anger that comes up. I have a lot of issues from the childhood that makes me suffer. I have been very irritated before but that has been much better. My mood is much happier. Now I am just so tired, I am so tired I can hardly get up from bed. Everything is very hard to do, I have to force myself to do the housework and so on…I am so tired…
When did it all start? Well, I seem to have a weak immunsystem since I was a child and I get very easely tired and exhausted, not much energy. I am a very happy and openminded person. I like people and like nature, animals and flowers. I am very positiv, and have a lot of ideas but not so much energy to do things.

How is your bowel movement and stool type (Constipation etc.)? Depends on what I am eating, if I don´t eat a lot of fibre I get constipated and then I feel very bad. I also get constipated when I am anxious and if something unusual happens. I need to follow routins. Usually I have diarrhea in the mornings.
How sleep, how are your dreams? I have nightmares often. It´s almost always about some terrible things that have happened in my life. I have some themes: When I was a little baby my mother and I had to run from my father that was very violent. We packed our things and ran from home. I was very scared and I am dreaming about this packing and escaping a lot. I also was engaged with a man 20 years ago that was very violent and I dream a lot of him. That he is hunting me and that I am escaping from him. I am very frightened when I wake up. I also have dreams about that someone is hunting me and my children. I am very scared of that someone is going to hurt my children. I have a lot of nightmares about dangerous men that is taking my children and we have to escape from then. I am saving my children in my dreams, and wakes up totally exhausted.
Do you have any strange, peculiar or unusual symptom or feelings? Gets very tired of being with people, needs to be alone with family and to have a calm environment.
What medications have been taken earlier? I have tried a lot of remedies the last 8 months. I have not written down exactly for how long and so on but here is a brief description. Kalium phos 6X – this I ate for at least three months and this made me feel much better mentally. I am now more stable psychologically and I am not so anxious anymore. Very good! I have eaten as I sad before Rhus tox 6x and some CM. It helped at first but it seems to get worse now in my joints. I think the problem is coming back again. It helped a little bit for a while. Ihave also taken ignatia CM 3-4 times and I think that this wasn´t good for me. I got very dizzy, spiritually opened and dreamt a lot of strange dreams. I now know that you have to be very careful with especially the high potencies. I now eat only Natrium phos 6X but I have not noticed any changes. I have also been taken some complex remedies with hepar sulf for my red throat and this has helped me very much.
How do you look like (Appearance (fat, thin, smart, tall, lean etc)? I am very thin and quit tall. Light hair with blue eyes. I am a positive, and happy person. Very communicative.
If your are female how is your menstrual cycles and from how long (normal, irregular, painful, clotted, colour etc.) It always comes at the same time, very regular, it is very small amount and is dark colour and clotted. I sometimes have bog problems with PMS. Very irritable and angry and after a few days I cry a lot. But the last months this has not been the case, maybe due to homeopathic remedies…
Family history - What major diseases are running in your family? Fibromyalgia, ADHD, cancer, a lot of nervous and mental diseases.
Any other information? I feel as a weak person. I get easy colds and they last for weeks. I always seem to have low energy. My greatest wish is to get help in finding my constitutional remedy and hopefully get a longlasting relief…

Thankyou all for your response! I have already been to the healthstore and they have ordered the Nat mur 200CH. I will get it tomorrow or the next day...
I will also try to describe my mental symptoms for you dr sharma.
Mental Symptoms: First of all I have to emphazise that my mental symptoms have changed dramatically to the better for the last 6 months. I belive it is due to kalium phos and rus thox and maybe ignatia. You see I have tried some remedies and am not sure of which has helped me. I am much calmer now but still I am an anxious type. I do get very upset when it comes to especially my children. My greatest concern is whether they feel okej or not. If they are unbalanced I worry a lot about them. I get easily overwhelmed by things. I engage in things which are important for me and totally drain myself from energy. Overenthusiastic. The things that have been better is that I usually have a lot of suppressed anger that pops up from time to time especially the week before period. I am angry with my husband and other people. The anger remaines a couple of days and then I get very lachrymose and feel so much love to my family. This anger is a lot better nowadays. I fear a lot of doing mistakes especially at work, I fear not being good enough. I feel very lazy and have trouble to get things done. When I have started it feels much better. I am very tired and lazy. Just feel that I need to rest and sleep all the time. I can also be very dominating with my familymembers and I try hard not do because I really don´t like that part of me. Another thing is that I feel like I am stuck with the things in the past. I have trouble letting go all old stuff that has happened in my life. My mind is often concerned thinking about childhood and earlier things that has happened. I want to let go and go on with my life now. If I don´t get my sleep, regularly food or something else happens that makes me unbalanced I get very irritated and angry. I have big trouble dealing with unexpected things that occur. I need to have some control over the situation and I think the reason is because I have not so much energy so I have to be careful not to drain it. I am very quick in mind both in thinking and talking, changeable and I am very forgetful, impulsive. It´s sometimes difficult to live with me becaus I have new ideas all the time and start new projects but has limited endurance to finish things. I get easily bored and is in some ways quiet restless. But I can also sit and do nothing for days to recharge my batteries. Things that makes me better is staying at home and follow strict routines. Being in the nature, I love animals. I hope this will help or otherwise ask me some more..
Thamkyou very much for your time and effort.
Tintintin on 2007-05-23Hello again,
It has now been ten days since I took the prescription of Nat mur 200c 3 doses on one day. The first 3-4 days I felt better. No headache, more energy. I dreamt very vividly during the first nights. After four days I got worse again, headache in the mornings, pain in the joints especially my hips and wrists. My breast got very swollen and sore. The last three days I have been feeling very frustrated, angry and irritated with my family. (These problem are probably due to PMS, but this time they seems much worse than normally)
Thankyou very much for your time and effort I will wait for your reply on what to do next.
Tintintin on 2007-06-04This thread continues beneath the following ad.please continue NAT MUR 200C once in every 3 to 4 days. take it for two to three weeks based on your condition.
finally, you can take NAT MUR 1M one dose every week for three weeks.
rishimba on 2007-06-04
Thankyou very much for your prescription. It seems like the remedy is working for me now. I took one dose on monday and it only took one hour until I was feeling much more energy. I could get up from bed in the afternoon which is unusual for me. But the next day I was totally anxiety-ridden, felt terrible. It lasted for about one day and then resided. At thursday I got tired again and the headache came back. I took another dose of Nat mur 200c and felt better again. I am still feeling much better, more energy, happier, sleep better.....I feel that an so much is going on in my body. thankyou for your advise on this remedy. I thank you from all of my heart.
Tintintin on 2007-06-08Dear homeopathic doctors,
It has now been about 4 and a half months since I got the prescription from you. The prescription was to take Natrium Mur. It has helped me a lot and I have taken 200C potency for about three months (june, july, august). then I have taken Nat Mur CM (our health store doesn´t have the potency 1M which you suggested) once a week in september. For the last three weeks I have not taken anything and I have been very much worse. Many symptoms came back like very tired, pain in joints and muscles, headache, depressed and so on. Yesterday I took one single dose of Nat mur CM and today I am getting better again. I just want to check with you if it is ok to continue taking Nat Mur CM once a week. And for how long do you think I will do this....
Thankyou so much for this prescription! You have given my life back again. I completely understand that it will take time to become fully healthy again because I have been suffering for about 10 years...
Sincerely Mrs Pia
Tintintin on 2007-10-12please note that CM is a very very high potency and can give you long term aggravation.
please dont use it in such short intervals.
if the symptoms are re-appearing even after taking a few doses of CM potency, the case should be taken all over again. its possible that nat mur is not the similimmum at all.
otherwise, for the time being, please take CM only when the symptoms return. please dont take it every week.
a dose every month for three or four months is ok at the most.
rishimba on 2007-10-16This thread continues beneath the following ad.Hallo again,
Thankyou for your answer! I am not going to take the Nat mur again as I felt worse again after one day. I fell fatigue, headache, pain in my joints, earpain and so on again. I did feel better but only for a half day or so. the strange thing is that the homeopath here in Sweden says that taking homeopathy can neder cause any aggravation no matter the potency. If it is not the simillium nothing will happen she says. I am getting confused by this. I am worried that the severe headache I have is an aggravation from Nat mur. Is it possible that you may take another look at my case again. After taking the Nat mur my mental mode changed in a few hours from being irritated and angry to become very sad. I cried and felt depressed but after I felt better and more happy. It was like Nat mur cracked the anger and I came in contact with my sad feelings.
Thankyou so much!
