A 33-year-old woman, teacher by profession, came to the practitioner complaining of painful cramps and stiffness in her right calf muscles for the past three months. She had pain while standing, walking or sitting. Her job demanded long hours of standing which worsened her condition. She consulted an orthopaedic doctor who diagnosed it as DVT after a physical exam and prescribed medicines. The patient did not take them and opted for vibrionics instead. On 28 Oct 2015, she was given: -
CC3.1 Heart tonic + CC3.4 Heart emergencies + CC20.4 Muscles & Supportive tissue…TDS
The patient also did the exercises suggested by her doctor. On 9 Nov, there was 60% improvement in the cramps as well as stiffness and the dosage was reduced to BD. On 2 Dec, she had 95% improvement in pain and stiffness and the dosage was reduced to OD. By the end of December, she was fine and the remedy was stopped. She was happy that she could stand for long hours, sit or walk without any discomfort. As of June 2022 there has been no recurrence.
Editor’s note: Ideally, dosage of TDS should continue till the patient is 100% symptoms-free.
