A 37 yrs. old male had come with complaints of recurrent dry cough with shortness of breath which got increased since one month, for every 2-3 days once. His complaints triggered after exposed to dust in the working area. His complaints would get aggravated while breathing in (inspiration) and in the evening after completing his work. He did not have associated complaints of fever or urine-stool problems. 

He also reported pain in the stomach at the epigastric region on and off recently which would get aggravated at night and during rest.

Due to field work, he has a habit of fasting and eating junk foods. He works at the construction site so frequently gets exposed to dust (silica and asbestos).

By nature he was out spoken. He was a hardworking person and would take immense care about his family. He would get affected very fast when reproached. He would get angry fast and avoids talking during anger. He was sentimental and attached to his loved ones. He was sympathetic and caring for others problems and would voluntarily go ahead to help them without expecting anything in return. 

He looked thin with fair complexion. He generally cannot tolerate cold weather. He desires to eat much but cannot eat well.

On examination, chest was clear at that point of time.

He was given homoeopathic medicine Causticum in infrequent doses as per the indications. He recovered well within few days. Complaints of dry cough did not recur. Also his gastric problems got resolved. Patient is still kept under close observation.

Note: Causticum is used in this case as per the indications. In all cases Causticum cannot be given. Every case has it’s unique presentation for prescription. Same medicine cannot be used for all the patients suffering from same disease condition. Homoeopathic medicines should be always taken under physician’s guidance only. Self-medications are not safe and prone to side effects.
Case Record No.: TNG 02/32
Dated: 10th February, 2017.
