A 28 yrs old woman came to my clinic on 15 august 2010, complaining with irregular menses and weight gain since 2 yrs. She will get her menses for 3-4 months once and she even she gets if she uses the Allopathic medication. She is putting on weight and double chin and increased appetite and excessive hair growth on chin. Hair loss on scalp.
Her menses are irregular, scanty, painful 1 day before menses, till the second day. Gets irritated, mood swings before her menses, weepy and depressed before her menses. Once flow started, she feels relieved.
Earlier she was 50 kg weight, now she is 65 kg. More fat accumulation on hips and tummy with double chin, even though she tried to reduce her weight she is not able to reduce a single kg.
Past history: she suffered from typhoid at the age of 14 yrs. H/o Sinusitis since childhood, relieved by Homoeopathic medication.
Family history: both the parents are Diabetic. Father has heart affections.
Physically, her appetite increased, wants to eat something or other, mostly junk food. She desires sweets, sour things. Aversion to cabbage. Thirst is more, wants to drink cold water, cold drinks, even she gets cold with them. Bowels regular and urine normal. Sleep is disturbed, takes long time to sleep and wakes up late with tiredness all over the body. Dreams of snakes, someone chasing her kind of dreams she get. She is intolerant to cold weather compared to hot conditions. Sweats a lot, when she is anxious and on slight exertion, with offensive smell. She feels better with discharges.
Mentally, she is coward, want of confidence and quite anxious person. She hesitates to express her feelings. In the childhood she used to be brooding in nature and she used to feel inferior as her sister is more expressive than her and everybody praises her. She never used to express her feelings and she used to curse others in her mind and used to get wicked thoughts in her mind but she never expressed them. To get appreciation from her parents, she used to work hard in her studies and never likes to play with her age people. She feels that she was premature in her thoughts and she used to behave idiotically and cry a lot without reason. And when her mother tries to ask her, she never open to her. She said that she used to feel that she was neglected by her mother and she is more attached to her father than any other family member. Once she tried to behave normally, her relative insulted for some reason. Then on wards she never talked to him and never entered in to his house, in spite of many invitations.
She used to suppress her anger and her emotions, in her childhood. But once she started earning money, she started showing her tantrums, she will behave on her own and she never listen to anybody. She can’t keep her relations properly. She left her school and college friends, after her education. She want of love and affection from others, for that matter she used to date with many people and if she felt that if other trying to dominate her or exploit her, she never hesitates to end the relationship. She married her office college, against her parents will. But she couldn’t maintain the relationship. She got divorce in 2005, 1 year after the marriage. Then on wards, her menses become irregular and started putting on weight. To forget everything she started drinking and dating with other men, but she couldn’t able to get the comfort what she wanted.
She is quite angry person; she gets irritated without any reason and then she start scolding them and yell on them without listening to others explanation. She feels that she is expressive and fair person. She talks on the face but not does the things behind them.
She feels jealous seeing the persons who are happy and to do something to spoil their happiness, but she scared to do such things. She thinks a lot about her future and imagines that one day she became rich person and everybody will feel jealous of her glory, but in reality she doesn’t try to work hard.
She has many phobias and fears. She scared of snakes, heights. Want to commit suicide on watching the sea and rivers. She loves water and wanted to die by jumping into the water. She feels better in sea shore, her mind become peaceful by watching water.
On analysis of the symptoms, i felt that she is in depression and have suicidal tendency. She lost her life in search of love and affection and childhood insults made her like this. She is in psychotic tendency and need a counselling. I explained her condition and told her along with the Homoeopathic medication; she needs a counselor aid, so that she can able to judge herself. I referred her to a psychologist.
Basing on her symptom totality, i gave her Medorrhinum 1 M, one dose and explained her diet and exercises. After 15 days she got her menses which are normal in flow with dysmenorrhoea. Then on wards, her periods are regular. With the diet and exercise management and regular counselling session she lost her weight up to 10 kg. Now she is good and become confident and working in Mnc without any struggle.
