Mr. A.S (PIN 17663) from Hyderabad was suffering from ankylosing spondylitis since two months. It started with the pain in his right knee joint and right toe.
His pain was very severe. He was not able to keep his leg on the floor. There was difficulty in walking on account of the pain. He started developing lower backache in the last 10 days that was gradually increasing every day. Lower back stiffness was also present and that would get worse in the early morning. He would feel a temporary relief in his pain with hot fomentation.
His HLA B27 test was positive. He had taken T Zempred (Methyprednisolon) for almost 20 days. For that particular time period, when he was taking steroids, his pain had reduced but it again increased after completing the steroid course. He would take painkillers during the occurrence of severe pain, almost 2-3 times in a week.
He was frustrated with his current treatment. While searching on the internet about Ankylosing Spondylitis treatment, he came across Life Force. He personally visited Life Force on 5th December 2011 and gave his complete case history.
His appetite was good. He was fond of spicy and junk food. He disliked sweets. His thirst and bowel movements were normal. He would perspire profusely on the palms and soles. He was more tolerant to the cold weather. His sleep was sound.
Mr. A.S had his own business. He was staying in a joint family with his wife, brother, and parents. He was very hard-working. He had just started his business. He was working very hard to develop it. There were continuous thoughts about business in his mind. He always wanted to perform to the best of his ability. He would get irritated if the work was not done on time. He would feel as if his ankylosing spondylitis hampered his work and progress. He wanted to get rid of the pain as early as possible.
Dr. Rajesh Shah studied his case details and research-based homeopathic medicine along with his constitutional medicine were prescribed to the patient.
The patient called up after three to four weeks and reported that there was no change in his pain. He had to take pain killers 2-3 times in every week. It was explained to him that as homeopathic medicines treat the disease from the root level, it takes time for the homeopathic medicines to show a significant result. He was advised to continue the same medicines.
We got his first feedback online on 8th February 2012. His pain had reduced by 50%. He could walk without any difficulty. Lower back stiffness was still present. And, in the last one month, he had taken painkiller only once or twice.
He visited Life Force on 14th April 2012 to give his further follow-up. There was 90% improvement in his relief from the pain. He did not require any painkillers in the last one month. Now, he had no difficulty in walking. His lower back stiffness had reduced by 90%. He was very happy with such smooth and gentle recovery.
He visited Life Force from Hyderabad, specially to thank Dr. Rajesh Shah.
This case highlights that homeopathy is highly effective in providing a great relief from the pain resulting due to ankylosing spondylitis and improving the mobility. Homeopathy also helps in eliminating the need of painkillers when treating ankylosing spondylitis.
