A 24 yrs. old female had come with complaints of recurrent unbearable pain in the abdomen particularly on the right side of the lumbar region and iliac region since 3 years. Her complaints started after pregnancy and would get aggravated with slightest exertion. She would experience severe breathlessness and fullness feeling in the abdomen along with abdomen pain. For which she was under allopathic medications for 2 years of duration which benefited her temporarily.

She also reported lower back pain on and off which would be better after taking rest. Also stated intermittent increase in the frequency of loose stools immediately after eating food.

By nature, she was mild and yielding. Her mother passed away when she was one month old. Her father got remarried. She was taken care by maternal uncle and aunt. Until she reached 10 years of age, she did not knew about her mother. She believed her maternal uncle and aunt as her own parent. However, some of the relatives revealed her the truth and called her that she is an orphan. Since then she developed many complaints like recurrent headache, chest pain and irregular in school attendance. She also had suicidal thoughts many times and was depressed during childhood. She got married 4 years back to a well-known family. Though husband would take good care of her still she would miss her mother.

CT abdomen done on 8th Novemeber 2016, revealed having mesenteric lymphnode of size 8 x 4mm and CT abdomen done on 16th November 2017, suggested having very small mesenteric lymphnode. 

However, patient was reluctant to repeat CT scan as she was completely off pain after homoeopathy treatment.
