Hello Everyone,
I have this acute problem since yesterday morning.Yesterday I got up with bad sore throat, lots of post nasal discharge, Bad body aches and some low grade fever. By the end of the day my sore throat was gone just little scratchiness was there. Right now also I have no throat problem but lots of body aches that includes achiness in my ribs(both),upper back, legs and my head which is worse than yesterday. I just feel like laying in the bed. Even with thick blankets and comforter+heat I am cold. I have socks on my feet still they are freezing cold. This coldness in the feet bothers me so much that I can't even sleep peacefully. I have very scanty watery nasal discharge, but I am badly congested in nasal and head. Very very low in energy. Appetite is ok.I don't feel very thirsty but my mouth is drying up after every few minutes. Over all I feel pretty sick. Can any one help me with this problem.
I still have 99.1F temp. I am extremely dull mentally.

Pat,

Try Gelsemium 30C. Put in water, take a sip every hour until you start to notice some improvement and then taper off accordingly.

Stir vigorously before each sip.

If after 6 hours there is no improvement, gels. is probably the wrong remedy. So get back to us with more symptoms if there are more.

If gels. makes you worse, stop taking it.

Hello PatR,

How are you? Did you take Gelsemium as advised by Snoopy and seconded by Ricky?

Hello Snoopy and Ricky:

Thanks Snoopy for your suggestion. I was feeling very sick yesterday I took gelsemium without even looking at your reply. But I just took it dry(not in the water) then I took one more dose at night(also without water). My body aches are much much better now only thing that is bothering me right now is my stuffiness in my head and nose. Because of this head congestion I have headache. I also am feeling lots of weakness. I have 2 story house so climbing those stairs is a big task for me. I feel short of breath climbing up and down the stairs. Do you think I should continue taking Gel.

Once again thank you very much Snoopy for your help.

Dear Pat,

Take Gels. in water this time and see if it gives you a boost. If it helped 50% so far, chances are it's the right remedy but may need to be a little more powerful or taken a little more often to go the rest of the way.

Ricky, do you have a different opinion?

Snoopy

Hope you don't mind me butting in Snoopy and Ricky.

If the gels in water doesn't improve things I would try Bryonia- I find it follows on well from gels.

Hopefully Ricky will drop by with her opinion, but, Bryonia is known for: dryness of the mucus membranes resulting in thirst for large gulps at a time; also, the patient absolutely does not want to be disturbed. Every disturbance, even having to answer a question, makes the patient much worse, he or she only wants to lie perfectly still; every movement or motion makes the patient worse, even deep breathing or moving the eyes.

Dear Snoopy
Thanks for giving me prompt reply. Yes I have started taking Gel. in water. I had little fever this morning but now fever is gone. Over all I have started improoving drasticly. My main concern as for right now is my weakness,shortness in breath when ever I am doing little household chores and also my stuffiness in head.
Snoopy do you think I should take Gel. 200 now?
Let me know your view on that.
I still have little achiness in my legs.
Thanks
Pat

You may need a different remedy now. What else is happening with the dificult breathing? Temperature, sweat etc? Get your lungs checked just in case you have pneumonia.
