Creating Waves of Awareness

A Case of Lumbo-Sacral Prolapsed Intervertebral Disk With Paraplegia


Mr D.D.S., 47 years, a technician of a political party, came to me on 12 Dec 2012 walking with crutches supported by a partner and diagnosed as a case of paraplegia with foot drop due to Vitamin B 12 deficiency along with diffuse posterior annular disc bulge at L3-4 to L5-S1 level.

He was not able to lift his legs, feet, or toes.

He was not able to stand without the support.

He was getting numbness in thighs at night with sudden shock like sensation.

 

ODP

1995: Started as sudden falling on right or left side due to imbalance associated with tingling & numbness in lower extremities

2004: Suffered from passing involuntary urination

2008: Started getting difficulty in walking with bed wetting. Gradually, lost capacity to walk as well as stand without support

Being a technician of a Political Party, he was very loquacious having a egoistic attitude. He was quite particular, perfect and industrious in his work. He could not tolerate injustice to himself as well as others.

         

Due to his illness, he left Mumbai and went to his native place. As he was not able to work, he became bored as well as felt forsaken by people, friends, and relatives. He gradually became indifferent with everyone as the disease progressed.

On observation, he used to "frown" a lot.

 

MRI: LUMBO SACRAL SPINE 11 Jan 2002 (Hinduja)

Diffuse posterior annular disc bulge is seen from L3/4 to L5/S1 levels indenting the thecal sac.

Vitamin B 12 (29 May 2004)  

153 pg/ml (Normal 193-982 pg/ml)

Vitamin B 12 (8 Feb 2011)

446 pg/ml (Normal 193-982 pg/ml)    

 

ANALYSIS OF A CASE

  • This is gradually developing paraplegia may be due to the disc prolapse.
  • Earlier, it was considered a case of Vitamin B-12 deficiency. But, even after Vitamin B 12 supplement paralysis was increasing. His B-12 level results in 2011 were found to be quite normal. Yet, the disease continued to progress.

Dear Dr Prasad. Obviously the diagnosis of Vitamin B-12 deficiency as the cause of problems was incorrect, despite supplementation and then correct vitamin measurements, the foot drop and inability to stand, with weakness and incontinence remained until the homeopathic prescription of plumbum. I find this case interesting to compare to the muscular dystrophy case for weak legs. Was the 'frown' a tip off to you in some way, or did that make it harder to select plumbum?

Nice case, I just hope this politician will promote homeopathy now that he is better

I like this kind of comprehensive case taking but if you could not due to some reasons then only physical symptoms can also provide you the similar remedy.\

1.Extrem paralysis foot partial.

2.Extrem paralysis legs.

3.Extrem.paralysis toes.

4.Extrem. paralysis toes extensors of

Regards.

Wonderful case! 

But I have little idea about this 50 millesimal potency. If you please explain why you repeat the same remedy for some days (nearly one month)?

Excellent case Dr. Prasad. Congratulations. You selected millicimal potency of Plumbum. Since many doctors do not use this potency, do you think that potency of 200 could serve the purpose initially. Just your views. thanks

Dr. Shiv Dua,M.A. D.I.Hom.,HMD (London) 

Respected Sir,

Thank You Sir...

As there was lot of suppression due to use of steroids, anti-inflammatory as well as sedatives, he requires repetition to arouse the susceptibility. If I would have repeated the 200/ 1M, it might have caused UN-necessary aggravation. That's why I have preferred to use 50 millicimal potency. You can not repeat centicimal so often.

Thanks once again.

Dr Prasad Rasal.

It is an interesting case very well resolved. Dr Prasad, instead of administering 50 millesimal potency, if you had resorted to centesimal potency what would have been you potency selection and frequency of administration, this is just to have your viewpoint please.

Respected Sir,

Thank You Sir...

Dr Prasad,

 Thanks for providing a very logical and convincing explanation.

Thanks again.

Thank You Sir...

Am obliged by your befitting reply. Thanks.

Excellent case Dr. Prasad. Congratulations. Why u think 50 millesimal potency can be repeated and IM or 10M can not be repeated. I have repeated Bell 10M in a infant in case of epilepsy and Aconite 10 M in case of heart attack with out any side effect. After all 50 millesimal potency is higher than centicimal potency in dilution.
