In the patient's words:
I am very grateful to Speciality Clinic and Dr. Jawahar Shah for treating me so safely and surely.
Female/ 45 yrs
Mrs. N.B. P., 45 year old patient got sudden high fever with joint pains. She had such severe joint pains that she could not walk on account of it. Her relatives had called up from Gujarat to give her history on the phone. She had been diagnosed as having Chikungunya. At the time when her case was reported to us for Chikungunya cure , it was rampant in her locality in Gujarat.
Her relatives reported that she was feeling cold and had increased thirst for small quantities of water. Her joint pain would be somewhat better with pressure and hot applications and she was much worse after walking.
Based on the above history, she was prescribed Arsenic Album 200 for the fever along with Bryonia 30. She continued treatment for one week at the end of which, she had no fever and the joint pains were much better than before.
Bryonia 30 was continued for some more time until her joint pains subsided completely.
Note: It is advisable that the patient does not indulge in any kind of self-medication in chikungunya cases.
Conclusion: This case shows how homoeopathy works efficiently in epidemic disease conditions like chikungunya. She was prescribed Arsenicum alb and Bryonia on the basis of symptomatology and got permanent relief.
