This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Let me understand - you felt better on day 1, then worse day 2-3, then better on day 4. What happened each day after that? What is the result as of today.

We also need to do a proper assessment. I will go through your case to pick out all the symptoms so we can assess each one.

I mainly focus my 3 major sysmptoms: joint pain, inflammation, stiffness. As I am taking daily dose my day to day result is as follows:

Day 1, 2: less pain and inflammation in the finger joint, less stiffness while wake up in the morning that I consider better by 30-40%.

Day 3: pain and inflammation is back worse by 20%, stiffness is worse by 30%.

Day 4: pain, inflammation, stiffness better by (30-40%).

Day 5: same as day 4

Day 6: pain and inflammation worse by 20%

Now as of today pain and inflammation in finger joint is better by 30%, stiffness 40%.

Pain in left ankle joint does not come back and I am feeling better by 90%. But toe small joint still hurting with small pressure in left feet, does not change.

Initially, after taking the Aurum Met 30C I really feel better by 60-70% for all of the symptoms that I mentioned in my post dated 04-08-2014.

Beside of the above mentioned symptoms I don’t notice anymore changes before or after taking Aurum Met. In summary my mental symptoms get better than before.

Alright, this is a complex result. Let me analyse it so we make a reasoned decision on how to proceed.
 
Evocationer 5 years ago
I stopped the remedy from September 23.

Awaiting for your further advise.

Thank you.
 
hedican 5 years ago
My apologies for the delay.

This is interesting - a large majority of symptoms are better, and they are concentrated in the mental, emotional and general spheres. Some of these improvements are quite significant (40-50%). However many of the local symptoms in the joints are worse.

This appears to be the correct Direction of Cure. The disease is moving from the inside to the outside. Relief is first appearing in the more important aspects and the suffering moves away from those areas but into the local physical locations.

I feel that it is appropriate to move to LM2 now, dosing exactly as you did before.
 
Evocationer 5 years ago
Please do not apologize rather I am sorry to bother you. We know how you are helping the forum members by proving suitable remedy to cure the cases beside of your regular practice. GOD bless you.

The reason I am coming back to you, after taking the remedy I am really felling better day by day although sometime the improvement relapse. On the other hand I want to avoid the conventional (allopathy) drugs that I have to carry forward to rest of my life with lots of side effects.

I will collect LM2 as soon as possible.
 
hedican 5 years ago
Continuing improvement? Can I ask if the physical symptoms are also improving or are they still worse? So is the worsening moving back towards your normal state?
 
Evocationer 5 years ago
It does not go back to the normal state. Day to day or continuing improvement I mean to say about the mobility. I don't feel any discomfort of doing my regular activities. I remember at the beginging stage it was difficult to walk while wake up in the morning due to the stiffness and pain that usually took 1-2 hours to reduce it but now some days the stiffness, pain is there but does not take that long (may be 20-30 minute)to improve it.

Hope I am not confusing you. You are absulutely right with your comment
'a large majority of symptoms are better, and they are concentrated in the mental, emotional and general spheres. Some of these improvements are quite significant (40-50%). However many of the local symptoms in the joints are worse.'

Thank you.

Hi Evocationer,

I took two doses of LM2. I had severe ankle pain (this time left and right both, as you know I usually get pain in my left ankle) day before I took my first dose. After taking first dose it didn't change, I took the 2nd dose it worsen then I stopped, thought could be aggravation. It been now 9th day I stopped my remedy. The ankle pain slowly reduced. Its better by 60%. Most of the symptoms also worsen that are as below. I am not sure whether the result is the aggravation of LM2 or not continuing LM2. Please advise.

hedican 5 years ago
Could you please advise.

Thank you.
 
hedican 5 years ago
Alright I will work though these results to see what is happening.
 
Evocationer 5 years ago
Ok, Thanks.
 
hedican 5 years ago
So the improvements are:

Avoiding friends and wanting to be alone – better by 40%
Thinking about people having cheated you – better by 50%
Not wanting to talk about past failures – better by 40%
Not continuing relationship with someone who talks about failures – better by 40%
Fear of speaking in public – better by 50%
Shyness – better by 50%
Romantic feelings not being returned by wife – better by 30%
Criticizing self – better by 40%
Forgetting to return calls – better by 40%
Feeling more knowledgeable than others – better by 40%

Thirst in the evening – better by 50%
Less thirst in the morning – better by 50%

Pain better initial movement - better by 20%
Pain worsening later part of the day – better by 20%

Pain switches from one finger or hand to the other – better by 40%
Severe ankle pain – better by 60%

The vast majority of improvements are in the mental/emotional sphere, and many are quite significant - 40-50%. Not all mental/emotional symptoms are improved though which is a little worrying, especially since they are worse not just the same.

In fact very little is the same - either noticeably better or noticeably worse. It is a strange result - both improvement and aggravation together. It is clear that the remedy is working, but is it close enough to cure, that is the real question.

Long aggravations are typical in cases with a lot of pathology/tissue change. That is likely the reason here.

However, it also does not seem that LM2 made any difference to the results. Therefore I want you to go back to LM1.

Lets try altering dosage first before we consider potency/remedy changes.

1. Hit the bottle 5 times firmly against the palm of the hand

2. Place 3 drops into 100mls of clean fresh water

3. Stir very thoroughly

4. Take 2 teaspoons out and place into a second cup of 100mls.

5. Stir thoroughly and take 2 teaspoons out and place into a third cup of 100mls.

6. Stir thoroughly and take 2 teaspoons out into the mouth. Hold for 20 seconds and swallow.

Do this once a day for up to 7 days, letting me know regularly how it is affecting you .

I started from today and update you regularly.

Just took two doses. The following symptoms worsen by 10-20%.

Inflammation of small joints
Pain switches from one finger or hand to the other
Severe ankle pain
Unable to walk on waking
Pain in joints on waking
Stiffness on waking
Easily tired
 
hedican 5 years ago
Still aggravating? You are extremely sensitive. Stop for the moment, let it die down. We will need to move to an even greater level of dilution.

This is rare but not unheard of.
 
Evocationer 5 years ago
Yes, I stopped the remedy.
 
hedican 5 years ago
Symptoms are worsening day by day. From yesterday another area effected (right knee joint - pain & inflammation).

Please advise.
 
hedican 5 years ago
Worsening? Something is not right here.

We need to change our approach. Perhaps the pathology is too great to move forward without addressing it directly.

Please go through the PHYSICAL symptoms again, giving me a detailed description of them including all things that aggravate or ameliorate them. Describe in detail the sensations and pains and any emotions or thoughts DIRECTLY associated with the pains/sensations.
 
Evocationer 5 years ago
Hi Evocationer,

Pain switches from one finger or hand to the other – worse by 30% (This is the first time I had pain, inflammation in right knee. It is hard to bend the leg, feel pain while movement, touch. Few days before right ankle also affected.)
Severe ankle pain – worse by 50% (left ankle having continuous pain and inflammation, better by rest, worse while stand up, touch, message. Right ankle pain is better by 20%)
Unable to walk on waking – worse by 60% (since there is pain at ankle and foot, I am careful to make my step. Left foot has continuous pain)
Pain in joints on waking – worse by 40%
Stiffness on waking – worse by 40%
Easily tired – worse by 50% (when I come back from work I don’t feel to do anything, just want to seat or lye down)
Unable to do heavy work – worse by 20%
Loss of interest in doing fun things – worse by 30%
Depression – worse by 30%
Aggravation late at night – worse by 30%

I feel the RA factors still there in my body, sometime its dormant, sometime its severe. At the beginning when I use Aurum Met 30C most of the above symptoms improved, but later it relapse although we moved to 200C, LM1, LM2.

Thank you.

Sorry you have misunderstood my question. I didn't want to do an assessment of the symptoms. I wanted you to re-describe the physical symptoms specifically to me. I believe I need to approach the case differently, and want to examine the case from that perspective (through the pathology itself).

Whenever a remedy has not had the desired effect, it is important to retake the case, not just keep using the same information that has been given before. Partly this is because the information may be given in a way that more easily suggests the remedy, and partly because the previous remedy will change things, and that change may also point to a better remedy.
 
Evocationer 5 years ago
Ok, you want me to follow the format for physical symptoms that you posted earlier
'HOW TO DESCRIBE YOUR COMPLAINTS (Physical Components)'

Only the physical symptoms, right.
 
hedican 5 years ago
Hi Evocationer,

I was thinking to write the physical symptoms that you asked me. As I waiting to figure it our the complains, here symptoms again changed. At present no pain, inflammation in the finger joint, a little pain in both the feet and left ankle - no inflammation, there is no pain, inflammation in right knee.

Its been 10 days that I stopped the remedy LM1 after taking 3 doses.
 
hedican 5 years ago
Hi Evocationer,

Reference to my previous post dated Oct. 28, situation still the same.

Is this a good sign.

Thank you.
