CASE 1: Mr. N. 57 years
reported: “Doctor, daily morning I get
headache;
in the afternoon, after lunch I have distension of
abdomen,
gastric troubles. In the night I get terrible pain in the
leg…”
Repertory
is of no use in this case. The case is very simple.
His
symptom is to be classified as follows: “Aggravation
of
head symptoms in the morning; abdomen in the afternoon and
legs in the night”
Under
the remedy Ammonium mur. (Boericke’s Mat. Med.)
the
following is specified:
 

headachehomeo RARE-STRANGE-PECULIAR SYMPTOMS:Section 153 of the Organon
Morning Headache
Its periods of aggravations are peculiarly divided
as to the bodily region affected; thus the head and
chest symptoms are worse mornings, the abdominal
in the afternoon, the pains in the limbs, the skin and
febrile symptoms, in the evenings.
One
single dose of Amm-mur-10M cured him.
CASE 2: A patient consulted
me for constipation. Laxatives
and
purgatives were said to be of no use. He further said that
for
several years he had been taking daily anticonvulsant drug
for
epilepsy and if he stops it, he would get convulsions.
The
following symptom under the remedy Opium (in Wilkinson’s
Materia
Medica) agrees with this case:
“…Increased
irritability and action in voluntary
muscles,
with diminution of it in involuntary
muscles…”
 

constipationhomeo RARE-STRANGE-PECULIAR SYMPTOMS:Section 153 of the Organon
Constipation
When
the intestine is full with faeces, urging is not felt
(involuntary
muscles.) In the instant case these muscles are
not
functioning. Movement of limbs is controlled by
voluntary
muscles and he gets convulsions in them (increased
irritability
and action).
Opium-10M
one single dose cured his constipation and
he
was asked to stop anticonvulsant drugs; he did so and to
his
surprise convulsions did not appear.
CASE 3: A patient showed his
right leg with ulcer. He got
injury
a few months earlier but so far it did not heal in spite
of
best medical treatment. After a pause, the patient
continued,
“Doctor, ever since the accident I feel numbness in
my
right upper arm and I am unable to use it freely. Has this
non-healing
of wound in my leg anything to do with
numbness
in my arm? But my arm was not hurt in the
accident.”
In
Wilkinson’s Materia Medica the following sentence under the remedy
Pulsatilla agrees with this
case:
… depression of vital power on one side
and increased irritability on the other…
Pulsatilla-10M, one single dose,
cured both the ulcer on
the
leg and numbness in the arm.
CASE 4: A patient came in with pain in the femoral part of urethra and
backache. It was worse while riding the two-wheeler. He showed his medical file
(given by allopathic hospital) and therefrom we noted the following points:
hydroureteronephrosis—Left
kidney;
pain in femoral part of urethra;
pain in sacral region.
His
complaint (pathology) is in ureter but he has pain in femoral part of urethra
and sacrum. This is something rare-strange-peculiar. Both these painful places
are at the same distance from the seat of affection—ureter.
Under
the remedy Belladonna (Wilkinson’s Materia Medica) we find the following:
“Inflammation of internal organs… The inflammation… runs in radii as it extends
to adjacent parts.”
(Femoral
part of urethra and sacrum are more or less at equal distance from his left
ureter).  Belladonna-10M, single dose, cured him.
CASE 5: Two years after the above case, a lady came to me for cervical
spondylitis. These patients get pain normally in the neck extending to head or
one upper limb. Strangely this patient complained of unbearable pain in both
shoulder tips. (Both shoulder tips are at the same distance away from the cervical
vertebra.) Belladonna-10M, single dose cured her.
CASE 6: Let us now examine what is meant by uncommon symptoms: Some of the
most useful uncommon physical symptoms cannot
be classified 
under any head
in the repertory or homoeo software and so it is better to memorise them.
For
example, under the remedy Ignatia we find the words great contradictions. (Boericke
Mat. Med.) A haemorrhoid patient said at the end of the consultation.
[Remember, in most cases, after the narration is over and after a pause, the
patient leans forward towards you and with wide open eyes (exclaims)] “Doctor…
one thing. Everyone says that pain, bleeding etc. in piles would increase while
straining when constipated; but my case is different. I do not get pain or
bleeding whenever I strain during constipation. But during loose bowel movement
I get both burning and bleeding.”
The
contradictory symptom is both ways. Hence Dr. William Boericke writes in
plural: “Great contradictions.” Ignatia-1M, single dose cured this patient.
CASE 7: A school boy of twelve was brought by the
parents. The mother started talking: “Doctor, he has to leave the house for
school at 9.30 in the morning. He gets up at 6.00 a.m. By 7.30 a.m. he becomes so
restless—jumps, cries etc. This would last for half-an-hour. Then this
disappears; it is followed by 3-4 times loose bowel movement
. After that he
becomes completely all right and goes to school.”
In
this case the following should come to our mind:
“Symptoms disposed to
appear periodically and in groups… ”

The
above lines are found in the remedy Cuprum
met
. (Boericke’s Materia Medica.) This remedy cured the patient in one
single dose in the 200th potency.
