Q A couple of weeks ago my doctor advised me I had a virus - a barking cough, headaches, sore throat etc. This week I returned to the doctor as I still had the cough, now a head cold, white spots on throat and swollen throat, but no pain or temperature. Mucus running down back of throat. The doctor said I had developed bacterial infection, likely in sinuses. I am now taking antibiotics. In the past few days I have noticed a pain developing in my right hip, it was slight to start with but became a bit more pronounced yesterday, and overnight has developed that I find it difficult to walk, lie on it or move around, quite painful in bed. It feels to me more like a muscle chill, seems more muscular than in the joint. Is there likely to be any connection between the infection and the hip/muscular pain? I do not normally suffer with joint pain. A year ago I did slip in the bath and had pain on sideways movement in the leg for some months, but that has largely healed now. This new pain seems to be in a different place. Thanks

A Hi. I would advise you to return to see your doctor immediately so you can check, and rule out, anything more serious, such as meningitis, which has flu-like symptoms and muscle pain. Also, it would be beneficial to get plenty of good quality rest (early to bed), eat well and refrain from alcohol and any dairy products or rice (they will make more mucus)and gluten (which will prevent your body from absorbing nutrients). You may also feel to take vitamin C supplements. Take special care of yourself in everything you do.

A Try to give you a brief diagnosis according to the imfomation provided. The coldness might be a factor to your imbalanc. The cold signs as head cold, white spots, clear mucus, muscle chill feeling, worse at night. The coldness won't attack you unless your defensive energy ( Defensive Qi ) is low. Yes, sure they all connected. To sort our these problems , can use acupuncture or Chinese herbs regulating your holistic balance and review your lifestyles. Please find more information from my website.

A It would seem that there is a connection there but I would need to have a full Homeopathic Consultation with you to gain much more information before being able to give a definitive answer and to prescribe a constitutional remedy suited to your unique situation and personality. I am in Red Beach, Auckland and if that is easy for you to come to then please either email me on mary.tonner@xtra.co.nz or ring me on 09 4279 279 to organise an appointment. Regards, Mary

A With my work as a pranic healer and teacher I would totally agree that yes there is a connection. Certain chakras within the body become very congested with dirty energy and this needs to be cleared away to assist with the healing of the throat and leg area. A full pranic healing I am sure would help tremendously. More on my website about pranic at: www.rainbowmountaintherapies.co.nz. Hope this helps.. All the best. Faye

A Good morning. I wouldn't go rushing to any conclusions while you're still recovering from your respiratory infection. You will have a heightened inflammatory process going on until that is resolved, and under such conditions other things will flare up. (you don't mention your age, but if you had early arthritis developing in that hip, for example, this might be activated by your current state). In such cases, things usually settle down once you're well again.
If the pain in your hip escalates, however, then I'd recommend you made an appointment to see an osteopath.
I consider your primary problem to be a need for immune support. For this, I suggest a naturopath or herbalist, who would anyway approach supporting you from a whole-person perspective.
Hope this helps.
Kind regards
Sharon

A I agree that far more detail would be required to give you an answer to your question. However, it does seem to me that an appointment with a good homeopath for a constitional treatment would be of benefit to get you back into a state where your body can heal itself. Good luck. Catherine McCarthy

A In my 16 years as a therapist I have seen how problems develop. The body reaches a state in which it can no longer cope with a situation and one 'dis-ease' compounds upon another. It would appear that this is what is happening to you. HOWEVER, before making further comment I would want to know more about you - age, gender, dietary habits, stress levels, etc. If you would like to have a chat get in touch via my profile, Your Essential Wellbeing. Cheers
