Homeopathy and Health Forum
Fibromyalgia, Vaginal discharge, digestion probsHi please help me as I have a bundle
Of health issues and it has depressed me so much. I am 30yr old female. Very happy by nature, optimistic, funny, efficient,talented, quick tempered and calm down fast. Creative and have lots of hobbies. Like decorating my home and a lil clean freak/germophobe.
Feel like drinking water a lot. Not much physical exercise due to ill health. Just some walking sometimes. Late sleeper and late riser. It has gotten too bad. Don't sleep before 3 to 4 am. Wake up by 11 am or so. Have wierd social anxiety at present. Avoid people's phone calls and going out with them. Even though I am quite fun when I am with friends and am the funny and mischievous one.
1. I have chronic yeast infections since I guess I was 8 or 9 (even before getting periods). I had no idea that it was yeast as in my family such things aren't spoken about usually. I haven't tried homeo for this issue.
2. I have constant indigestion. I am bloated most days in the upper part of stomach. Anything I eat causes gas. Nat phos has helped relive gas for me and sometimes nux vomica has helped with digestion. But I haven't gotten long term relief yet! My husbands grand mother is a well read in homeopathy and she suggests me the medicines I told. But now she is too old and I live in US and she in India. Hence communication is tough.
3. SLIP DISC : I have been using homeopathy majorly since 3 yrs for my multiple slip discs and fibromyalgia pains. I did feel lot of relief in the process but still struggling is all I can say.
3a) I had multiple slip discs, 3 yrs back due to repeated motion injury during moving houses. My L5-s1, C 5-c6 and also somewhere in the middle back I have protruding discs. At present my cervical disc hurts more than others. It pains on the right side of my neck. Sleeping on my right helps. Turning fully to my left anytime aggravates symptoms. My L5-S1 seems to have become lot better but I still get mild pains if I sit for more than an hour or two. Hence traveling or social occasions are stressful. Mid back is fine now. Also muscles feel very achy around the spine at times.
3b) FIbromyalgia :- this was diagnosed by my MD rheumatologist in USA and also couple of other doctors here and in India. I take cymbalta 40mg for this and also my back issues. I have also tried various homeopathy meds. I can give u the list of 1 ms and 10 ms I took for reference. I remember taking ruta 10 M. Rest I can check and mail u.
Symptoms- since my childhood I was mentally more energetic but physical couldn't ever match up to what I felt like doing. Waking up with tingling legs and body aches was common. Never felt fresh in the morning in school days. Couldn't bear sun so would avoid most sports. Would also sweat, especially from head too much which made it tougher to be active. My family would always land up pressing my tiny legs in morning to get me
Going for the day. But eventually I would feel normal by the evening. I guess I had phases of years when I was better and then phases when I was worse. After I got married 4 yrs back to my love, it got worse. We had an intercaste marriage which wasn't well accepted by my inlaws and my husband felt quite sandwiched. I was too naive to understand such complexities and felt alone and cornered by inlaws and my husbands behavior of not supporting me was taking a toll on me. I come from a very normal
Middle, upper middle class with practical approach Mindedness. I have never seen violence as a kid or anything. But I found out the hard way tht my husband would have a voilent nature when he got angry. Like break things around in frustration and harming himself by punching fists in the wall. I was schoked and in trauma. This made a huge impact on the health (couldn't tell anyone). I was going through all this alone when I already injured my back and one thing led to another. I fell weaker and weaker and my usual body pains rose like anything. And I believe my doctors feel that some emotional trauma caused
This fibromyalgia. Which I can totally believe. Good thing is everything is more or less sorted. My husband took some therapy and realized how he was and had changed tremendously. My inlaws started loving me and feel now That caste has nothing to do with a person. Thank god I could win over them finally. With the help of my parents morals Ofcourse.
I am an MBA but can't work here due to visa. Hence I find it hard to suppress my depression sitting at home. My confidence which is usually less took a toll due to not working in US and adding weight. . I know cymbalta makes me feel much happier. I can feel it. But I want to get off it due to side effects like constipation. But without it (tried reducing dose) my fibro pains are very bad.
Please help me feel better. Thanks a lot.

I eventually sleep in the morning and wake up very late.since childhood I hated sun. got headaches every day I was exposed to it. Felt too hot , sweaty and uncomfortable.
(Note: - Sensations are also important and should be especially Noticed. The special sensations may occur in any part of the body, or internally or in the head or extremities. Give the sensations in your own language to express it. No matter how simple or even ludicrous, it is necessary to give it.)
Examples: - It may be like a mouse or bug crawling; like wind blowing into the ears or eYes; as if someone was pulling a hair; as of a blow on the of a band or cord around the head; as though you had a cap on or hat; as a plug in the ears or some other place; as if aNother person lies along side of him, or that one limb is double; as if abdominal muscles were pushed out by arm of a child ;
as if boiling lead were pushing through rectum ; as if anus would fly to pieces during stool ; as if moisture, or a drop were running through the urethra back ; as if the year was grasped by an iron hand ; as if claws were grasping the bowels; as of a splinter in the throat or flesh like a string of thread on the tongue or in the throat; as if joint were dislocated; as; as if legs were made of wood.
(Note: - These are merely illustrations, a few which have occurred to other person, and are given that you may understand what is meant by sensations. Always give the locations as well of the sensations.)
BETTER OR WORSE
(Note 1 :- This section refers to each disease, each sickness and to every symptom. No matter what the trouble may be it is necessary to be refer to this section. Be sure that the aggravation or amelicration you Notice is from the course given.)
(Note 2 :- The time of an aggravation or amelioration refers to the year, the month, the week, the day, the night, or the hour.)
State at what time your troubles or any single symptoms, is made better or worse. Mornings are the worst, gets better later

It may be when you first lie down; or after lying down awhile or rising after sitting or on sitting after standing, walking; walking much; walking in the house or in the open air, or in the cold air ; or at night; running, running rapidly or slowly; when stooping over, after
stopping, or on rising from stooping; leaning the head backwards, forwards; to one side or leaning the head on the table or the hand; lying with head high or low; lying in some particular position ; crawling on the hand + knees or some other or many possible positions.
Usually when I lie down itís the best. But when I feel very sick I like to walk around the house organizing, cleaning and working.i feel best to sleep sideways on my tummy with one arm under the pillow. I always lean and sit on my right due to my protruding disc pain on my cervical place.
- Does anything cause the trouble or a single symptom to be better or worse ? It may be reading ,writing , music ascending or descending the stirs or a hill, biting the teeth together ,blowing the Nose , before or after one of the meals, breathing, breathing deeply, when chewing food, when eating or drinking, closing or opening the eYes , looking up, down or sideways, from heat, cold, from warm or cold air heat of stove or sun, dry or moist air going into the air or going into the warm, sunlight or lamplight from excitement, fight, grief, grief, sorrow fasting, some kind of food or drink

(Note 3:- The above is given to impress on the mind the great importance of Noticing what may seem to be little things.)
Breathing deeply helps,
Venting out helps,
Choclates make me happy
Singing, painting or creative work makes me very happy

Dear Mr. Shrivastav,
Sorry for the delay. I was trying to arrange meds and also fell sick with some food poisoning n Gerd issues.
In the meantime I had an appointment with my gynecologist and she tested me and found that I have bacterial vaginosis. She tested me 4 times in last 2 and half months and this result came constant. She prescribed medicine to be taken vaginaly and it seemed to heal the Infection in the beginning. But reappears. I Don't know if I start to get yeast by the end of the course or what. She told me that she thinks I don't have chronic yeast but rather have chronic bacterial vaginosis. I am super stressed with this now. Have to do another 5 days course and then take it once a week for a month. I feel discharge increases if I have intercourse (which is rare due to my issue). We use condom as protection and I am now wondering if that's any issue. I doubt though. Is there any cure for BV in homeopathy. Thanks.
Nitz7 on 2013-08-21Sorry I forgot to add. Haven't gotten my period since June Not pregnant.
Like I told u before. Have irregular ones when I live in US
Nitz7 on 2013-08-211 Nux Vom 200
15 drops in a cup containing an ounce of water, sip one third of it, 15 minutes later sip the next third of it, and 15 minutes later take the last third of it.HALF AN HR BEFORE DINNER .dont repeat.
AURUM MET 200,five pills on day 2 dont repeat.
day 4 onwards pulstilla 30 5 pills three times a day.every day.along with nat sulph 6x ,5 tabs three times
feed back after seven days.
UNFORTUNATELY THE CHANGED SYMPTOMS HAVE COMPELLED ME TO PRESCRIBE THESE MEDICINES.
