  1. I had a fall 3 weeks ago. I went down and hurt my leg initially it really hurt. I got up and walked home. It was very painful but I carried decorating for quite a few hours. After a while it didn’t trouble until a few days later I was running upstairs and I noticed a weird pulling sensation.

    The pain disappears with rest. I looked after and picked up my grandchildren and ran to the car the pain came on again. Now I notice it only if I walk and stand.

    What do you recommend, is there any homoepathic remedy that could speed recovery. Many thanks Elaine

    Good day

    I have been suffering from various aches and pain since about 2 years. The current problem that is harassing me is pain in my muscles, neck, shoulders and upper back. My doctor said that it is due to 2 things, 1. Premature pain from old age (I am 65) and pain from diabetes. The first time he has given me a treatment of cortisone which made the pain go away. This time round, I could not carry on feeling the paid, so I self medicated with cortisone again. (I could not go and see the doctor again for financial reasons as well as long distance travel.

    I suffer from an other number of problems which require me to take the following medicines : Clopidogrel and Aspirin (TIA), Atorvastatin (Cholesterol), Betaserc 24mg and Stemetil (Vertigo), Metformin (Diabetis), Lasix and Amlodipine (HBP), Amitriptyline, Sertraline, Quetiapine Furamate and Timipramine (Depression) and finally Lormetazepam (Insomnia)

    I am trying my best to go on a natural, meditation, Acupressure regimen to stop (in due course) to stop taking allopathic drugs. I have used homeopathy for a long time and even cured my wife from chronic sore throat. But I do not practice it anymore for various reasons

    Could you see if their is any way that you can help me?

    Many thanks
