No such thing as hypoglycemia???? Why do we even bother going to doctors at all???!!!! OK, so, it sounds to me like Lycopodium. Timidity–but not at home. Am I right? That was the impression I got. Plus it’s a low blood sugar remedy and a prostate remedy. So, here’s what I would do: Lyc. 6C in water with 5 succussions before each dose, three doses a day. Make adjustments going forward depending on how he reacts to the remedy. For instance, he may eventually need to go up to 9C, then 12C… My first case was a Lycopodium prostate problem–painful and frequent urination. Anyway, look for the mentals to change first as verification. I hope I’m right. Did you say you had already tried Anac.? Because they are better for eating and also are very timid but there is the tell-tale desire to curse, and they can really be a hand-full. Lyc. is capable of leading a more normal life.

Hi Elaine thanks for your helpful comments. Keith has started on Lyc 6 today. I have contemplated this Rx for a while as it fits his mentals well.
I don’t usually dissolve a remedy in water, so I will try it that way. I believe it’s best to use a small bottle to succuss it before each use but I’m not sure how long this water would last without becoming rancid, so I assume its best to change it daily.
Yes, I was astonished at a few Drs saying, no such thing as hypoglycemia. I did give Anac. but it did nothing. Keith isn’t one for cursing or swearing, but he can get upset at trivialities now and then, if I tell him to calm down he’ll say, Oh, I’m angry with myself.
Other mentals: Procrastinates all the time ! I did consider Lyc for his mental slowness of recent months and I omitted to say in 2013 it was found his brain was shrinking, which shows in his lack of logical thinking at times, Lyc again. His physicals are controlled by his emotions, this led me to Nat Mur which is complementary to Ignatia which has reduced his blood pressure more than any other Rx. He has very shallow breathing, for years I’ve asked him to take deeper breaths, strangely this was proved in hospital when his BP reduced so much on oxygen, and each time the nurse took his BP she kept telling him ‘deep breaths.’
Lyc occurred to me recently when he hasn’t been able eat a full meal. I think I’ve been too worried about the urology symptoms and concentrating on them, to see the whole picture until your opinion helped me to see that.

I repertorized your case. I wish I could post the chart here but it won’t stick. The totality analysis showed Lycopodium in first place while the weighted analysis showed Staphysagria in first place with Lycopodium in 2nd place. Because Staphysagria is a remedy for “ailments from catheter”, maybe it’s best to start with Staphysagria. I’m surprised to hear that his prostate gland can’t be surgically removed, which would solve all his problems, right?

I repertorized the case. When I looked at eliminating symptoms, I came up with Staph. When I looked at the totality, Staph was in 8th place. I’ve found that the remedy can actually be in any of the first 20 places, so again, I would look at Staph. I feel that I wasn’t able to take a complete case since I still had questions.
1. When you say you think he’s afraid of hurting people’s feelings, how sure are you about that? Have you ever asked him why he’s timid and if so what was his answer?
2. When you say he can’t stand confrontation, what is he afraid of? What does he think will happen if he confronts someone?
3. “Stubborn!!!” Please give some examples.
4. “very emotional altercation” What kind of emotion? Was he angry? Did he cry? Was he scared? Etc.
Also, at the end, you gave a new symptom of vertigo and gave some modalities. However, from the case you wrote, I have a hard time determining which of the symptoms you’ve described earlier in the case are still there. For a complete case, I would also need what I call homeopathic eliminators. Is he cold or warm blooded. What foods does he crave or dislike. How restless is he. What is his sleep like. How does he respond to different types of weather. What is his complexion? There are others, but as a homeopath, I’m sure you get the idea.
It’s often very difficult to treat a member of ones own family. Good wishes to you and to your husband.

Thank you for your comments.
Yes, Keith is timid in company but not at home, I feel this timidity is 1, from Lack of self confidence, 2. Lack of knowledge and inability to converse (esp with strangers) 3, Inferiority complex.
He feels much easier with people he knows. I considered Baryta Carb, I’m trying to figure if it’s childish when he says strange things now and then that aren’t relevant to what I’ve just said to him in conversation.
Added to this, over the last few weeks I noticed his parotid glands were swollen. He has slow thinking. I gave him a few doses and his glands are ok now, but thinking still slow.
Another thing is, He seldom learns from his mistakes, will repeat them.
Hates interruption when watching TV, can flare up.
Keith has no problem sleeping. Has an olive skin, has a large flat brown wart on L side of neck with a tag, also a flesh coloured tag on his abdomen.
Likes most food especially meat, eggs, sweet tooth, ice cream, salt (doesnt have) tomatoes, salads, vegs. Dislikes cucumber.
Likes to sleep on his R side. Hates cold weather, feels the cold terribly.
I asked him why he’s afraid of confrontation,… is it afraid of punishment? ‘No.’ Do you have bad memories from childhood of being punished for doing something wrong? ‘No.’
Are you afraid of people? ‘ Sometimes,…. but not really.’ What do you feel would happen if you asserted yourself with someone you disagreed with? ‘I don’t know’. Are you afraid of saying the wrong thing ? ‘Yes, sometimes’ .
Keith tends to Run Away from problems, disagreements, confrontations or things he cant cope with. (Silica ?) He always responds well to Silica. Feels the cold terribly, always wraps up or wears long sleeve shirt even on a warm day. I advise him not to get over-heated as this will make him feel the cold more. Wears a jumper on a warm day and the sun is out.’ I’m alright’ he’ll say. Wears a hat in winter. Loves to sit in the sun, as he has done again today.
Re the family altercation, he was angry over a well educated family member telling him what Keith considered was a wrong impression of society, which led to disagreement.
What needs to be cured? Enlarged prostate ! This is the cause of the problems and symptoms.
Keith has trouble spelling, perhaps dyslexic at times (Lyc) this is why he wont read road signs. This has led to quite a few times where he’s stopped the car and walks off, one time in the snow he walked off 3 times, where I drove after him and picked him up.
There’s a thread here of running away from things that he cannot Cope with, George Vithoulkas says this is Silica.
Keith once worked for a bad tempered, exacting man who didn’t like to pay on time. His attitude sent Keith into a health decline. Loss of appetite, weight loss, miserable. He walked off the job eventually. (Cant cope so leaves).
Another larger building Co. wanted houses completed as quickly as possible and were contented to put up with shabby work which Keith wasn’t used to doing so he wasn’t happy. This also affected Keith’s health he went into a decline, very weak and lethargic, couldn’t do anything as too tired and weak in the week he took off work. (Can’t cope, desire to leave)
Thinking about this since putting this case on the Forum I feel Keith’s mentals are very Silica as well as his physicals.
The other big remedy I feel is Keith is Medorrhinum. He has enlargement, and tumour on L kidney, Impotent last 4 years (Lyc) He Loves dogs, dislikes cats but could never be cruel to an animals.
