The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Unable to pass stool completely. Feel lethargic an have headache. IBS

I am a 45 years old male with the body weight on 80 Kgs, living in Mumbai. I am a software professional

I have this problem for nearly 20 years now. I don't get urge to pass stool. Only when I drink abundant water in the morning and have full bladder, do I generate urge. I do this at least thrice a day and then too most of the times I have unsatisfactory results. Besides, I feel heaviness inside my abdomen all day.

Each session takes hours and sometimes a large part of my day goes in this. It is frustrating and depressing. I keep myself away from people which brings in its own challenges. I avoid talking as much as possible and get angry at people who get in my way of the said regime. I am unable to pursue my tasks, because this takes priority.

I switched to vegan and semi-raw diet about five years ago. It helped me somewhat in dropping weight and also marginally in stools. It still is miles away from satisfaction.

Once I was advised Nux Vomica 30. It made my stool passing a little better but like every other treatment, the goodness lasted only for a few weeks. I am presently taking Gelsimium 30, advised for tackling heaviness, but no success in last 2 weeks. The doctors say it is IBS.

I really need help on this.

Thank you for the reply.

I have procured both the medicines and Yakult and started this morning. I will share the feedback after 15 days.

I forgot to share earlier that in the distant past I have taken even BC-04. It was effective, except that I developed bloating feeling after about a week. It became very severe and eventually I had to drop it.

Further, I have a problem of inordinate amount of passing gas. It is very embarrassing and uncomfortable.

Hello homeo_helper,

Around 6 days have passed by and I am sharing a concern, while I continue taking the medicines.

Yes, there is some relief. The evacuation is less stressful and sometimes I don't have to go for three times. Looking forward to further improvement.

As I indicated in my previous post, BC-4 in the past has caused bloating in my stomach. That exact bloating experience is coming back and is already making me uncomfortable. What do you suggest? Is it okay to drop just BC-4 and continue with Nux Vomica 200 only? Please advise.

Regards.

An aggravation from one of the remedies in the
BC -4. Too much of something, so stop taking it,
As it will get worse.

Hello homeo helper,

I have finished 2 weeks of the course and here are my observations:

- Firstly, thanks. Yes, there is big relief. Passing of my stools is now less stressful.
- After my uncomfortable bloating experience, I stopped taking BC-4 after 6 days. The bloating retracted thereafter.
- I still do my water therapy in the morning to develop pressure. My stools now are not well formed, although I don't have any problem with that.
- I still have to make three attempts for full evacuation. However, the first attempt evacuates maximum and rest evacuation in the remaining two.
- Now, my first stool has maximum mass. Second is lesser. The thirst is mostly gas, and a lot of it.
- After passing stool (especially after complete evacuation), I feel weaker in my stomach and also palpitations in my stomach. This problem has reduced in the last 3-4 days.
- My gas problem is still there. My stomach is rumbling all the day and I keep passing gas throughout.
- So my primary problems now are rumbling in the stomach, passing of gas, up to three rounds to evacuate stomach, feeling week and palpitations.

Although I still have above complaints, I still thank you because my you have helped in tackling my primary problem. I can safely say that there is 50% improvement.

Please advise next steps.

25g of dried plums daily help some people.

1 tablespoon of ispaghol (psyllium husks) in water twice a day also helps some people.

Thank you, syria for your reply.

I have tried Isabgol in the past in many many ways. However, it always causes constipation. Hence I cannot experiment further with it.

Hemeo Helper's prescription have benefited me and I will wait for him to reply for next steps.

Thanks again.

Hi homeo_helper,

I have finished 10 days of taking Lycopodium 200. Here are my observations:

- The relief I got while taking Nux Vomica 200 has reduced. Now some of the bowel movement stress is back.
- I have to still make minimum three attempts in the hope to clear by gut.
- I feel strange dryness inside my gut throughout the day.
- I still feel weak after passing stool and there is palpitation.
- I am unable to generate any urge to pass motion without water therapy. Unless my bladder is full, I cannot pass motion.
- After I started Lycopodium 200, there was almost 60% relief from gas formation.

Please advise next steps.

Hello homeo_helper,

I am back after 10 days of medication (2 doses of Nux Vomica-200 during day time and one does of Lycopodium-200 at bedtime). Here are my observations:

- Ever since I have started Lycopodium-200, the relief I got from Nux Vomica-200 has significantly reduced.
- I am back to being unable to clear my gut satisfactorily during the day. Everyday, my experience is different. Some days are good, rest are not.
- There is reduction in my gas problem. Almost 60%. However, now I have difficulty in passing gas.
- If my gut is not clear, I develop headache by the afternoon.
- I still feel weak after passing stool and there is palpitation.

Please advise next steps.

Hello homeo_helper,

I have been taking Nux Vomica 200 as per the prescription.

My feedback is that my condition is not very different from my original condition. I still have to go to stool for minimum three times, I cannot develop pressure/urge to pass stool, it is impossible to pass stool without full bladder and sometimes my gut is not clear even after going three times. The only advantage I see so far is that I don't struggle much if I pass stool successfully.

I am very upset and tired of my situation. Please help me out with your reply. If there is more information you want, please ask.

Looking for a quick reply. Thanks.

Here is my reply to the set of questions you have asked. Please review and share a prescription.

Height: 5ft. 10 inch

Country: India
1. Describe your main suffering? (Describe symptoms)
I do not get urge to pass stool. Only when I drink abundant water in the morning and have full bladder, do I generate urge. I do this at least thrice a day and then too most of the times I have unsatisfactory results. Besides, I feel heaviness inside my abdomen all day. Each session takes hours and sometimes a large part of my day goes in this. It is frustrating and depressing.
2. What other physical/mental sufferings in past, you had?
I did not want to marry. I was forced to. I did not want to be a father. I was again, forced to be one.

I am unable to put a date on this, but it is chronic. It started about 20 years ago.

When I am suffering and people engage me in intense conversations, I get angry. Also, I keep standing or walking. Sitting troubles me until I am relieved. Only when I have evacuated my bowel is when I feel ameliorated.

No.

Thirst is normal.
14. How if your hunger: Less, Normal or Excessive?
Hunger is normal.
15. Is there any kind of food which your body can’t stand?
Spicy food or flour-based food (roti, bread, pizza) aggravates my situation. Fiber (beetroot, lettuce) helps.
16. Is your sweat normal or less or more? Where does it sweat more: Head, Trunk or Limbs?
My sweat is normal. If I am sweating, it is mostly in my Trunk.
17. How is your bowel movement and stool type?
My bowel movement is the key problem. I do not have a satisfactory evacuation. My stool type (after starting Nux Vomica) is fragmented.

My sleep is good. I usually sleep lying straight, facing upwards.

No. My sexual desires have never been satisfied. I have given up on that. I do not even try.

I usually take a moral/ethical position and stick to it. I do not take sides and go only by what is right. I do not allow my anger to burst out. I manage it. In personal life situations, I am very courageous. In work related situations, I am timid. Usually I am a risk taker.
21. What medications have been taken earlier by you to treat the diseases and do you have any particular symptom surfacing after the medication?
I have tried many types including allopathy (laxatives after undergoing colonoscopy), Ayurveda (don't remember names), psychotherapy (Bach Frower Remedies) and Homeopathy (Nux Vomica, Lycopodium, BC4 and some others). I have been one some or other treatment for 20 years. No medicine has given me relief.
22. Nature of work, what do you do for living?
I am a software professional.
23. What major diseases are running in your family?
My mother is a heart patient (bypass and angioplasty done).
24. Describe, how do you look like? Describe your overall appearance
I am mid-sized. Physically, I have a regular appearance, but I am weaker than people of my age. My belly is out of shape. After taking a raw-vegan diet plan, I reduced from 96 Kgs to 73 Kgs. Now I am back to 80 Kgs after my diet plan has been disturbed.
25. Any special points you feel necessary to mention
All through my last 20 years I have felt that I do not carry enough stamina/strength in comparison to people of my age. Due to family issues (discussed earlier) I am mentally disturbed and feel like a failure. I have good intentions and great plans, but until I do not feel comfortable, I do not start working. I do not commit anything in future to people because I do not know how I will feel on that day. I do not like to wear tight clothes. Tight clothes around my stomach trouble me.

Thank you.
