Cervical dystonia Advice By: Claraviolet
  
May 10 2016
My mother is suffering form cervical dystonia. She tried everything like botax treatment and such but because of the side effects, she just couldn't continue that treatment. For the last 7 years or so, she is using homeopathy medicine but that treatment is losing it's effect too. She is using gelsmium 30 and belladona 30 along with arnica montana ointment.They worked on the first day but after that, it lost it's effect. She can't do much work on her own anymore. Also, this isn't the first time. New medicine works at first but later it's losing the effect.

So, can someone suggest her something good? Thanks in advance everyone.

Start with daily dose of the following cell salts, mix them together 2-4 tabs of each salt, 3 x day

1) Mag Phos
2) Kali Phos
3) Silicea
4) Calc Phos

Arnica 30-C daily at bed time. ( do not use ointment )
Hyoscyamus 200-C 2 x day 3 x week ( M-W-F )

as u may aware that root cause for cervical dystonia, is neuro. If we focus on brain function and nerves, it shall control the issue.

Also, stop Belladona and Gels now.
Continue the above treatment for a month. Any changes please inform.

Thank you, lal_anar.
We couldn't get our hands on Arnica 30-C and instead we have Arnica 200c. Do you recommend using it?
Also, we have drops(liquid) for the above mentioned 4 salts. We are planning to take 3 drops of that liquid, as you have recommended 2-3 tabs. Is that okay?

Thanks a lot for the all the suggestions.

Re:Cervical dystonia Advice By: lal_anar

Yes drops are fine too

Arnica 200-C is also ok, ( take it 3 x week at bed time )

Thank you lal_anar.
My mom said that she could feel slight improvement with these medicines, as of now. I hope she can get better gradually though. Once again, thank you.

Update about the condition:

The effect of the medicine varies time to time. There are fluctuations of pain even during a single day. When she gets upset over something, slight shaking of her head is observed during that time. She is having a hard time driving her own car . She is also having a difficult time lowering her head forward. In other words, the nerve is preventing her from bending her head forward. She can't even turn her head towards left properly. This pain is effecting her concentration in almost everything.

So, now, is it better to continue the above medication? Or do you suggest any change?
Thanks in advance.

U can stop Hyosc now.

Continue with Arnica and Cell salts daily as usual.

Give Calc Carb 200-C ( 1 x dose a week ) do not repeat till next week.

Zinc Metallicum 30-C 2 x a day for a month.

plz report after staring Zinc Met.

Greetings lal_anar,

We are using those new medicines and somehow this zinc metallicum is making her condition worse. It is restricting her neck's movements and the pain is also getting worse. What should we do now? If possible, can we stop this zinc met. medicine?

Re:Cervical dystonia Advice By: lal_anar
  
June 1 2016
Yes, stop Zinc Met
continue with cell salts and Arnica

most likely Zinc Met would be needed again after a week or so.

Hello lal_anar,

My mom's condition is getting worse. We did stop Zinc met medicine. She is just using those four salts mentioned along with arnica.

There is one more thing. She used to do breathing exercises and medication before. But somehow her condition got worse with those breathing exercises after using this new medication. So, she stopped breathing exercises and now she stopped mediation too. Do you recommend her to start meditation or is it better for her to just rest, instead of doing meditation?

Also, right now, she is barely managing her regular activities. She is using her neck belt now, even at home, which is really rare. During driving, she is using only one hand to control the wheel and she is using her other hand to hold her neck properly from time to time. Her pain is also responsible for her facial expressions these days. She looks extremely uncomfortable, like all the time. So, I hope you can suggest something that can relieve her from such extensive pain.
Thanks in advance.

Meditation is good, do not stop.

There are no side effects from Zinc Met. If u feel that Zinc Met caused any increase in pain, thats not true.

Give her 3 doses of Phosphorus 30-C, just 3 doses, do not repeat.

wait 3 days Phos, plz inform after 3 days.

Continue with cell salts as usual and arnica.

Hello lal_anar,

There isn't any improvement in her condition. In fact her condition is getting worse. I gave her 3 doses of phosphorus 30c and it's been 3 days. We have been using all the cell salts and arnica suggested by you. Thanks in advance.

Thank you lal_anar.

What about the dosage of this caulophyllum? Also, recently her head is staring to shake and she is suffering from severe pain lal_anar.

Re:Cervical dystonia Advice By: lal_anar

Caulophyllum 200-C daily

Re:Cervical dystonia Advice By: Claraviolet
  
June 23 2016
Well, dosage in the sense, whether she has to take 3 times daily or not. She is taking it 3 times, a day as of now. Thank you, in advance lal_anar.

Re:Cervical dystonia Advice By: lal_anar

not daily, just 1 x day

Re:Cervical dystonia Advice By: Claraviolet

It worked for 2-3 days but not anymore.
The medicine is losing it's effect when she is stressed. She is a working woman and it's difficult to avoid stressful situations. The first 2-3 days I have mentioned before, were her day-offs. She is dealing with too much pain in her working days. We will limit the Caulophyllum for just one time, everyday, for now. Thanks in advance lal_anar

My mother wanted to take caulophyllum and arnica two times a day, instead of one, to keep up with her stressful situations lal_anar.
I tried to talk her out of it..but....is it a good idea? Or should I ask her to not to go with that idea?

Re:Cervical dystonia Advice By: lal_anar

Greetings lal_anar,

There is some slight improvement in her condition. I would like to thank you for all your help. She is feeling a bit better after starting this caulophyllum and arnica. It isn't enough to help her in her daily activities(she is the head mistress of a school) but it's a start.

Hello,

Because of the road blocks, she is being forced to use her bike rather than her car and it is taking a huge toll on her. Her neck is experiencing severe pain and the spasms are getting worse too. Do you have any solution for her condition? Thanks in advance.

Re:Cervical dystonia Advice By: lal_anar

Greetings lal_anar,

She is using caulyphyllum, arnica 30 and cal carb 200 but lately her neck pain is getting worse. She is meditating a bit and that certainly was good for two days but now, it lost it's effect too. Can you suggest her what to do? She is getting weak and her pain is getting worse.
