I have had a general nasal congestion problem for 5 years, for which I sought the help of a homeopath. Nothing changed until one day (in August 1999) when I was given some stuff (I think it was R49 from Dr Rekeweg, although this may be a red herring)and from a day after I took it, I have had a chronic effect (severe congestion, sinus pain, bad smell in nose, feeling like a balloon is being blown up inside my face). It is still the same - a generalised congestion all the time, with this pronounced effect with alcohol. Has anyone come across this before? One suggestion from a friend was that it sounded like a TB miasm (my grandmother died of TB).

Peter,

Do you know what brought the nasal congestion on? Did something precede it? A cold or flu or something you may have taken medications for? Perhaps you used powder to stop foot sweat, or perhaps some other discharge was suppressed?

Is there a discharge along with the obstruction, or does it alternate with a discharge, or a nose bleed? If there's a discharge, what color is it?
Is it thick or watery?

Do hot/wet or cold applications help you feel better? Are you better or worse in the open air?

Is it worse in a particular kind of weather?

Are you better or worse for applying pressure to the area, like pressing with your hand or fingers?

Are you more or less thirsty than usual because of this? Do any kind of drinks help, like warm drinks or icy cold?

Is there a way you can describe the odor you smell, like fishy or musty...? Are there any odors that really bother you, like garlic, etc.?

Have you become colder or warmer since this started?

Is there a particular time of day or night when you feel worse?

Is there anything else wrong that seems to be accompanying this problem?

Has your mental/emotional state changed since this problem began?

Any other details you may have left out?

Finally, congestion with alcohol--I'm not sure what you mean.

The sereies of R Numbers are very effective against normal disorder in the body. In these numbers few remedies are mixed in such manner that it covers the whole picture of the patient for a particular disease. But I would not like to recommend you to use without taking 2nd opinion from your homeopaths.

Using of R numbers is not homeopathy but recently new rules have been defined by classical homopaths.

We can prescribe remedies on disease names as said Peter Chapell. Recently we (classical homeopaths) have started using AIDS remedy. More and more classical homeopaths are placing orders for the medicines. So in this sense there is no hurdle in using R Numbers. :razz:

Instead of the word "we" which implies everyone please write "a few homeopaths"!!!

Thanks for your reply. The discharge is yellow, and very slimy/rubbery, and musty/metallic would describe the smell. I cannot think of any psychological or personality differences either before or during, but I did take part in Asthma trials for a local hospital as I had a very mild form of Asthma as a child. I was not asthmatic enough to carry on with the study! I guess this was about two years before I started getting congested.

To clarify - by "congested with alcohol", I meant that after only half a glass of wine or beer, I get the symptoms described earlier - the discharge, smell, pain in the sinus and I cannot breathe out of my nose for maybe 24 hours.

I haven't noticed any weather changes, although I do love to be outside. As for pressure, it sometimes helps if I press on my left cheek bone - the symptoms are a lot worse on the left hand side, incidentally. I don't get nose bleeds but there is usually a small amount of blood when I blow my nose.

As for temperature, I think I may be hotter - my partner calls me a radiator, anyway!

I appreciate your response, Snoopy!

Peter,

Are you saying that if you don't have beer or wine, etc. you're OK?

Thanks,
Snoopy

For Pete(r')s sake, could you stop asking him leading, and either/or questions?

Why not tell him you can't see him, hear him, observe him, that you don't know anything about him, and that you are no position to know what is really going on?

This is a real person who is in a desperate situation to find a real solution for ongoing problems. Tell him your name so he at least knows who he's dealing with!

Alternatively, find a reliable and reputable homoeopath for him.

How do you feel about warm rooms, and can you describe your thirst and the kind of weather that would tend to make you worse; also, the time of day or night when you tend to feel worse, or for that matter, better? (Long sentence!) Also,
tell us about your appetite and what you love to eat and what you really can't stand or any food you might like but makes you worse to eat it.

Hi again, Peter,

You said that you were very hot. Could you give us an idea? For instance, in the winter when you go outside, do you bundle up as others would or do you wear fewer outer garments? Do you open the bedroom window at night? Are your feet hot or cold or somewhere in between? Do you have to stick them out of the covers at night?

Are you thin or heavy?
Are you hurried or relaxed?
How would you describe your energy?

Snoopy
