Agaricus Muscarius

Agaricus Muscarius(Fly Fungus):

The most salient sign of Agaricus Muscarius is shaking of the body, secondary to mental stress and weakness of the muscles.  The hands are tremulous, the limbs display jerky movements and the whole body quivers.
Jerky  movements  are  also  a  characteristic  of  Actea  Racemosa (Cimicifuga),  with the difference that the violent movements are on the  same  side  as  one  lies  on,  while  in  Agaricus,  the  whole  body quivers.Tremors and spasms both exist.  The eyes also shake and sway.  The eyesight is not focussed.   I once happened to see a young man  suffering  from this  ailment  which  was  progressing  with  age. Agaricus Muscarius significantly benefited him to the  extent  that he could do his regular work normally.
In Agaricus,  eye  symptoms  are  very  prominent,  such  as  double vision, black spots dancing before the eyes, squinting, burning and irritation of the eyes and a feeling of fatigue.  It is difficult to focus the  eye  on  one  particular  point.Reading  becomes  difficult,  the eyeballs  swing  like  a  pendulum,  and  the  discharge  of  the  eye  is yellowish and sticky.  The mind becomes weak.  Concentrated studies and mental work cause fatigue.   Such children are very  stubborn in nature, irritable and sensitive.  If checked harshly, they may go into mental  shock  and  become  unconscious  (more  so  in  the  case  of Aesculus).  Agaricus  should  be  given  to  children  even  if  rolling movements of the  eyeballs are absent.Some children are basically mentally weak, more so in the morning.  They cannot understand any new idea.  They are sluggish, physically as well as mentally.  As the day passes, they become mentally alert, normal and  cheerful by the end of the day.    These symptoms are very similar in  Agaricus and Aesculus, except for their timing.
In Agaricus, weakness of nerves can induce deafness.   Exposure to cold causes earache, with redness and burning of the skin.  The feet burn, itch and become red.  Sometimes in extreme cold, if one enters a heated room, hands and feet start to itch and become red and swollen. This condition is called Chillblain.  Any condition in which the blood accumulates in one particular part of the body causing distension, redness,  itching and pain, will be relieved by Agaricus Muscarius. Similar  conditions  can  be  found  in  some  allergies  (for  example, during the treatment of malaria).  If associated with other symptoms and signs of Agaricus, Agaricus Muscarius will cure these without the help of any other anti-allergic treatment.  One or at the most two doses will suffice (by the grace of Allah).  Sometimes, Phosphorus may also be  helpful in such a situation.    Some children happen to stammer. Stammering is in fact due to some kind of fear.  It should be treated psychologically also.  In general, Stramonium is very useful in deep mental   and   neurological   conditions,   but   has   not   been   found sufficiently  effective  in  the  treatment  of  stammers.    So  one  must carefully  scrutinize  the  cause  of  the  illness  before  suggesting  any remedy.  Agaricus may be one possible remedy for stammering.
In Agaricus Muscarius, the illness has fleeting tendency.  Sometimes women,  during  their  nursing  period,  may  have  been  subjected  to mental shock (due to some severe accident, grief or mental pressure), causing the milk production  (lactation) to be suppressed.    If the milk is insufficient due to the mental shock, Agaricus can be very useful.    Pulsatilla  will  be  the  right  medication  for  Pulsatilla  type patient.  Other remedies used for normalizing lactation are:
Agnus Castus Bryonia Causticum
Lac Defloratum Phytolacca Silicea
Calcarea Carbonica Chamomilla Phosphoric Acid Secale
In Agaricus,  like  Aesculus,  the  pains  tend  to  radiate  downwards. Being  related  to  the  nerves,  the  pains  are  not  dull  and  localised; instead, they may radiate to one side and then to the other.  In such a case, Agaricus is more effective In Agaricus Muscarius, the abdomen is full of wind (or gas) due to sluggish  intestinal movements.In such cases, Nux Vomica is also very promptly effective.  It restores the intestinal mobility in transient as well as established condition.  Sulphur works for prolonged periods and Aconite works temporarily.  Nux Vomica is between the two. The Agaricus  patient  is  usually  very  quiet.Typically  the  facial muscles twitch.    The intestinal muscles also fasciculate, but do not have the propulsive power.  In such a case, Agaricus is the remedy.
In Agaricus Muscarius, one experiences hallucinations as a result of blood poisoning due to the toxins produced inside the uterus.  If the uterus does not expel the placental membranes after the childbirth, it can affect the mind.    In this  condition, Pulsatilla is a good general remedy for the natural cleaning of the uterus.  If the infection sets in the uterus and Puerperel fever develops, Sulphur 200 and Pyrogenium 200 should be given.  If there are hallucinations and milk formation in the    breast    is    decreased,Agaricus Muscarius will be very advantageous.  In the case of infection, Silicia, Kali Mur, Ferrum Phos and Kali Phos, all six 6X, should be mixed and given in addition to Sulphur and Pyrogenium.
In Agaricus, we see eczema also.It is recognised by the blisters containing yellow exudate, which develop along the course of the nerves.  It is often seen that the neurological conditions can transform into eczema.In some  other conditions, vesicles develop along the course of the peripheral nerves, such as in herpes.  But Agaricus is not the remedy for herpes.
Herpes of different kinds is a very painful disease.It should be clearly recognised and    treated    timely to avoid    dangerous complications.  Previously, I used to prescribe Silicia, Kali Phos and Kali Mur for herpes which helped to some extent.  Later on, I found that the best treatment for herpes was that as for snakebite, i.e. Arnica
200,  Ledum  200  and  Arsenic  200.    This  combination  offered unusually quick cure (when I used this formula on late Aftab Ahmad Khan Sahib during a severe attack of herpes).  Due to the frequent mutation of the herpes  virus and changing pattern of the disease, in my knowledge there is no one standard remedy which would be of use all the time.
The Agaricus patient does not have full control on his limbs.  Things drop out of  his hands.   Crockery frequently falls and breaks.   His grip is not strong enough.   Severe muscle pains and spasms occur in the limbs.  Hands and feet twist violently.In Agaricus, the symptoms aggravate after taking food, in the open and in cold  weather.Sleep fails to improve the symptoms.The patient feels drowsy all day. Itching and burning are conspicuously present.
