A Case of Cervical Spondylitis treated with Homeopathy

A case of 37 years old female patient who came to us with severe pain in the cervical region (neck). The pain started on the left side and radiates to the arm and the forearm. Along with this the patient also experiences tingling and numbness in the arm. Now the complaints have started on the right arm too.

The complaints are aggravated by

The complaints are ameliorated by massage and pressure. Besides this there is stiffness of the fingers in the morning which becomes bearable after some movement.

The patient also had lot of hair fall and it falls in bunches. She said the texture of the hair has also changed in the past few years.

She said she has lot of tensions and is anxious about the future. She feels who will take care of them when they grow old. She has a daughter and she is very attached to her she becomes anxious if she goes out or doesn't come home on time. There are lot of negative thoughts about accident and marked fear of death.

Due to this anxiety she saves her money and if her husband spends money she becomes very angry. Due to this the relation with her in-laws are strained as her father in law spends lot of money which she doesn't like at all even though he earns his own money.

Relations with her husband are very good but since the last 3-4 years she feels neglected in the family. All these things she cannot express it to anybody so there is lot of internal anger. She feels since marriage she has become very sad.

She cannot trust anybody and is very suspicious by nature. Emotionally she is very sensitive if somebody says something wrong she cannot forget it easily. When she is angry she prefers to stay alone but she will always express her anger. If somebody tries to console her she doesn't like it. Revengeful feeling is there but she never takes revenge.

As a child she was the youngest in the family and was a pampered child she got whatever she wanted. She is scared of water, snakes, and dogs. She had a emotional shock when her sister passed away due to cancer. Even now he misses her.

What we observed was that the lady was wearing over sized clothes. When we asked why she was wearing so loose clothes she said she feels very uncomfortable if she wears tight clothes. She removes her earrings, bangles and chain while sleeping otherwise she feels suffocated this was the case history that we got.
