Wheezing, Rhinitis, distended stomach

I am 41, male, living in Bangalore since 1996
Right now i have three set of symptoms. These symptoms are prominent since last 10 days and are occurring together.

1. Asthma related: I am getting wheezing - typically in out breath. Most prominent in early hours of morning. But last few days - its actual there the whole day. The phlegm does not come out, and if comes out gives me a better feeling. When it comes out it is generally light green (or sometimes white) and little in quantity. Wheezing tends to get aggravated sometimes when i climb stairs (specially with my son in arms); sometimes when i drink something cold; some citrus fruits (which are sour like grames or orange); sometimes with dust or perfumes; (specially dust coming out of old clothes or old books). Any physical exertion does worsen the wheezing - though hit dosen't make me totally down - as in - i am able to contiue to do something physial (say play tennis inspite of the wheezing). I normally do nto get much cough - sometimes a spasm - which seems to come from chest and not painful and is dry. But this is rare. Usually there is no expulsion of phlegm with cough.

2. Rhinitis related: I have a perennial cold - which typically stays in the nose (little mucus comes out). There is not much need to clean the nose (only in the morning i need to clean my nose with water). Otherwise i do not need to use kerchief during whole day (but the cold is there in the nose). I get several bouts of (hard and loud) sneezing. The sneeze are almost accompanied with watery eyes - though the water does not hurt. Currently my eyes are itching badly - almost the whole day. I am rubbing my eyes too much and they are red. I also get itching at the ceiling of my throat and itching in the ear (though these two not there for last 10 days).
Sometimes when i get sneezing - i get watery nose - with discharge stingy and acidic burning my nostril (but this has not happened in the last 10 days). IN fact my nose changes symptoms very fast and within a day i wouuld have a runny nose, a blocked nose, a cold hanging in nose and so on. Discharge normally is green or sometimes whitish-grey.

3. Abdomen related: Last 10 days my stomach is bloated (distended) - the upper part of abdomen - above the navel - the abdomen feels very taut - like a football - and has given me a funny shape as if i am pregnant. I feel hungry quite a lot but when i eat i feel full. Eating makes the distention worse - but it is anyway distended the whole day. Stool is soft, pale yellow - but every time i get the feeling of not satisfactorily passing of stool. So i end up passing stool 3-4 times a day. I get sometimes itching in rectum. But its not there
on all days. I do burp sometimes or pass flatus sometimes - and i think that both these should give me relief - but actually they don't (both are not too much in frequency). I like eating both spicy as well as sweet things - no special preference. I do get rumbling sometimes in the tummy. There is no pain - just the abdomen feels very tight. Some of my trousers have hence become tight and i feel like wearing loose clothing.

History
I had had problems of wheezing for many years now (almost since i moved to bangalore 12 years back), but they come only off and on (some months of the year like aug-sep and jan-feb) and usually managed without any medication. Last year Spongia tosta helped me ease my wheezing but this year it hasn't helped. Sometimes when i get an attack of wheezing - mostly int he morning between 3am-5am - i take an asthalin inhallation (but this is very infrequent - say abot 10 times in a year. However last 10 days have been bad and have taken asthalin almost one a day.
Other than cold and wheezing as such i do not have any other medical problems

Physical characteristics
4. The house / colony where i live has lot of greenery around, specially lot of wild grass growing in the vacant plots.
5. I am of a regular built - 5'6' height, 66kgs, like playing sports and do play fairly regularly (though not playing for the last 10 days as my partner is injured); Overall nowadays feel tired quite easily.
6. My tongue is normally coated thick white.
7. My wife often tells that my breath smell is bad and even brushing or cleanig tongue may not help. My own sense of smell is week - possibly because of the perennial cold.
8. Thirst is normal - though in general i feel like drinking something cold (though i avoid it). I like coffee and drink two cups in a day (sometimes 3 :)
9. Otherwise my diet is fairly healthy (veg food, no drinking or smoking). i like snacking in between meals; i generally eat fast; i like fruits and salads.
10 Skin is dry; I sweat easily - specially in the face.
11 Like to sleep covered till shoulders, sleep normally straight. Indoors or outdoors both i like - no special preference to warm or cold - though nowadays i do not like fan in the evening or morning.
12 I move my legs a lot when sitting and doing work or talking.
13 Like to be touched - soothes me a lot - specially gently the feet being rubbed (or even face or neck)
14 I get neck stiffness quite a lot - but this could be because of excessive use of computer and head constantly looking 'down' because of the laptop. I sometimes avoid pillow.
15 I do get - once in a while - a catch in my back - with sometimes sharp pain.
16 Lifestyle - Basically sedentary - computer based or discussion based work - mostly sitting whole day. I do play (tennis / squash) in the morning 2-3 times a week - or go for walks.
17 I do feel tired by evening and often drowsy by 8-9pm. However few hours (2-3 hours) of sleep can freshen me up and hence i can sleep from 9pm to 1am and then work for few hours and be fresh the next whole day. (thoug i do not do this normally - i goto sleep by 11pm)
18 I am easy sleeper (can get sleep anytime of the day) - yet can avoid sleeping and still feel fresh whole day
19 In general i do not like sun much and may get a headache (though not frequntly), nor do i like bright light. Like soft soothing light.
20 Do have a history of unsatisfactory bowel movements. Get smelly flatulence easily (in which Ver. Alb has really benefited). Normally i pass stool promptly in the morning.

Mental characteristics
21 I am generally a relaxed and calm person. I do not get angry easily and a usually complimented for my sense of humour.
22 I day dream a lot - often talking to myself or imagining myself in different 'situations and roles'. This to be is a nice way to relax (i do not need TV - my own imagination is a good source of entertainment.
23 I do not worry; also procrastinate doing unpleasant or regular chores.
24 I think i have higher than normal sexual urge
25 I like company though I do not mind being alone. But in general i am an introvert.
26 My dreams are many a times related to Missing a train or flight or bus - and / or an accident of the same.
27 I like music, reading, going outdoors, eating out,

History of homeopathic (self) treatment
For Wheezing:
What has helped (though not helping now): Spongia tosta, Morgan pure,
What else i have tried but apparently not helped - Nat sulf, Nux vom, Calc carb, Lycopodium, Bryonia

For Rhinitis:
What has helped (though not helping now): Aconite, Hep Sulf, Merc Sol, Petroleum, Ars Alb (long time back)

1. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?

I really do not seem to show much weather preference - though wheezing i think is less in summers and more in rainy season

2. Is your sweat normal or less or more? Where does it sweat more: Head, Trunk or Limbs?
I guess i sweat more - mostly in face (forehead, cheeks, neck)

3. How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your wife?
No specific feelings - fairy neutral - accept them as they are. I like to be (and spend most of the time) with my family - that is with my children and with my wife. Have few friends and am perfectly fine with it.

I can't believe this, but almost all of these symptoms are the same as what I have been having. Very distended stomach, itchy eyes, sometimes I get so sleepy I can't stay awake. I do have apnea also. Spmetimes also I have a rash break out somewhere on my body especially on my back. I really hope someone can help.

Please copy the Questionnaire from the following thread
http://www.abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/188925/
and post all the questions here duly answered. On that basis your remedy may be worked out.
 
kadwa last decade
1) I a 60 years old, female, and happy. My mental state is good I believe. I am naturally a happy person. I am happy with my life except for these few physical problems I have been mildly worried about. I see on TV a Dr talking about Ovarian cancer and the symptoms are similar to mine and that makes me worried. I actually feel great, except for the distended stomach and constant allergies.

2) Physical ailments are: Overweight by at least 50 lbs. Constant allergies, post nasal drip, sneezing, itcgy eyes, loose mucous and then sometimes nasal congestion. Sleep apnea, I sleep with a dental appliance. I breathe thru my mouth at night even tho I wear the appliance, I wake up with a very dry throat. Last night I woke up coughing for 30 minutes. Mys tomach gets larger and larger thru the day. It is hard. I have constipation problems that I never had before. I have to make sure that I empty my bladder completely, because it akes a few tries to do this after the first release. My eyes itch constantly. Sometimes I get rashes on my back that come and go. I take synthetoc thyroid and I have taken this for 20 years. I actually feel good most of the time, but I am worried about the distended stomach.
3) I really don't know the cause for all these problems. I think they may all be allergies, but I am not sure. I have always had nasal allergies.
4) I feel better wne it rains. I fell better outside. I think dust is part of the problem. I think I may be allergic to something in laundry soap, and maybe artifical food coloring. I feel good when I wash my face with warm water.

1) My main suffering is allergies, and worry about the distended tight stomach. I have a lot of mucous, itchy nose all the time, coughing. I also sometimes feel so sleepy I can't stay awake. My eyes feel very tired and itchy. I can fall asleep whenever I lay down. Sometimes my nose is stopped up.

2) Sleep apnea, constipation, overweight, low thyroid, sleepiness almost all the time.

3) Mentally I am concerned about my stomach. At the end of the day it gets very large and tight and very abnormal. I don't have insurance and I can't afford all the tests they would put me thru if I went to the Dr. I think about being overweight and that is constantly with me. My marriage is good, but we don't have sex, becaue I am not interested.

4) Most of the discomfort is centered around my nose and eyes and stomach. The stomach feels very large and very very tight, but I don't feel sick. Sometimes when I talk on the phone I find my self breathless, and I have to pause and catch my breath to talk again.

5) The allergies have been around for almost my entire life. The stomach I remember asking a Dr about 2 years ago and he wasn't concerned, but recently it has been getting larger and tighter. I don't know if it is connected with my trying to lose weight all the time. I did go on the Atkins diet with protein mostly. When I first did that a year ago my stomach was small and not distended. Maybe it is connected with carbs. I have tried many types of diet pills in the past and that may have contributed.

6) Time of day is around 5-6PM my stomach get svery large, and tight. My allergies are really bad also. I also feel very sleepy.

7) Aggrevate? Food, diet drinks, dust, Ameliorate? Rainy days, proteins instead of carbs

8) I am post menopause, so it is not menses. I think it is external and internal. I know that over the past 5 years I have become much more sensitive to everything. One time my eyes had a severe reaction to something that was so bad I could hardly function. I stopped sleeping on down pillows and that helped. I had gone on a trip to NM and it happened on the way there. When I got home I spoke to a neighbor who mentioned the down pillow possibility. I stopped sleeping on down pillows and that helped then. But I sleep on one now and it hasn't been bothering my eyes like it did 5 years ago.

9) I feel best in warm rainy weather.

10) I get angry with my husband because he frustrates me. I ask for help with things, but he doesn't get it. I ask him to do things and he does for a few days and then goes back to doing nothing. WE watch too much TV. He doesn't listen to me. He and I get along, but we are more like brother and sister now not husband and wife. We have been together for 25 years. He is paranoid, negative, not motivated, and I feel our relationship is stagnant.

11) I really am not consumed by any fears. I am concerned about the stomach problems, but I don't feel fear. I actually really feel good. I live in the present and future. I love to plan my life forward. I have goals, but they are attaiable, and easy to acheive. I honestly don't have major fears. I don't normally remember my dreams. Last night I had one where Oprah was rolling her eyes about me behind my back, and I told her that I had good peripheral vision, so I saw what she did. That might relate to my sisters and some relatives who look down on me.

12) I crave carbs. I hate sour things. I crave sugar and candy and cakes. I hate anything sour like vinegar, pickles. I even like sweet veggies.

13) Thirst is normal

14) Appetite Normal, but when I feel hungry I eat, but feel full very fast

15) Vinegar, some pickles, pickled beets, sauerkraut

16) Normal sweat, except I do get hot flashes at times all of a sudden, I do sweat but not excessively Head sweats mainly

17) I have to take a lot of fiber now to have a bowel movement. When I do, I have nrmal stools. If I don't take any fiber, I don't go. When my stomsch gets distended I can feel a lump on my left upper side below the breast which feels like an intestine or something.

18) I sleep well, except I wake up with a dry throat in the noght from breathing thru my mouth. I like to sleep on my stomach. I don't really think I am sleeping well tho because I am still sleepy all day.

19) I do not satisfy my sexual desires. I am not interested in sex with my husband or anyone. I do take care of it myself sometimes. I do have a fantasy world that I don't let anyone into.

20) I like people but I don't have a lot of friends. I don't like to follow I lke to think independently. I am non religious. I am a hme body and I can always find things to keep me interested in life.

21) I have taken many diet pills for years, they always work but then I gain the weight back. I take allerggy pills, they take care of allergy symptoms, but then they constipate me. I take fiber, and stool softeners to help constipation, These work, but I am not sure of the side effects.

22) Major diseases in family. Sister with uterine and skin cance, grandma on father's side breast cancer, mothe lung cancer and diabertes, dad's side mental disorders. Dad alcolholic. Grandfather fathers side mottled skin, heart attack at older age. Mother hypochondriac.

23) I am 5'5' tall. I have a very large frame. Large fat hands. Size 12 shoe. Normal legs, thighs and arms, they are not fat. Larger stomach, middle and buttocks. Gray hair, average to thin. Double chin. Spots on my arms sun dmaged skin (I love the sun) I don't have hardly any body hair. I have never tweezed my eye brows. I shave under arms once a year. No hair on my legs. I am average looking. Nice nose and lips. I haev some red birth marks.I have always been active until the past few years. Happy looking face, smiley and happy. Great with people, easy to get along with, except the relationship with my husband which I feel is in a rut.

24) Post menopausal

I am new to Homeopathy. There are no stores that carry these near where I live right now. I have to order these remedies. Is Kali Mur the same as Kali Muriaticum? Is liquid better than pellets? What size of each do I need to order would you think? Thanks so very much.

Yes. Kali Mur is the same as Kali Muriaticum.

It is not so that liquid is better than pellets. You should buy whatever is readily available. Generally people prefer to take homeopathic remedies like Graphites as dilutions and bio-chemic medicines (tissue salts) like kali mur as pellets.

You should order 15 ml or 30 ml size for Graphites dilution and 80 pellet bottles for tissue salts.
 
kadwa last decade
Even 5 ml or 10 ml graphite dilution will do. There is no need of 30 ml.
 
kadwa last decade
I hope I am in the right thread place now. I don't totally understand threads, so sorry.

This is what you say to order, but when I look on this site to order, there is no choice for 6x for Kali Mur and Ferrum Phos. They only offer 6C.

Graphites 200c (5 OR 10 ML)

(80 Pellet Bottles of each)
Kali Mur 6x
Ferrum Phos 6x

Thank you so very much for the time you are taking with me. I want to get the medicines right and do this right. Thank you so much

You are at the right thread and you have understood the remedies and their potencies correctly.

bella34431 last decade
If you are not able to procure the tissue salts in 6x potency, it is better not to take any tissue salts. In that case please take only Graphites as suggested earlier and report back after 15 days.
