  18. Michele Keleher says:

    I have nighttime aching in my right leg. The vessels are more prominent in this leg. I am a lymphedema therapist and physical therapist. I tried compression stockings. This seems to help somewhat but mostly my leg aches less during the day when I am active.. pain is worse when I am inactive and increases at night. I took a 30 c rhus tox but am not sure of dosage or if there is something better. The leg is a little more swollen than the left but not significantly so. I am 77 years young and in otherwise pretty good shape and still working. I also tried nighttime compression. At first this seemed to help but lately I am not sure this is beneficial. I want to avoid medical intervention. Thank you.

  19. Hello Dr. Sharma, I am 77 years old and in pretty good shape, not over weight and fairly active. I have a hard time with high blood pressure, especially under stress and yes I suffer from anxiety. Is there any all natural medication I can take for this? My prescription meds do not work well.
