A case of sciatica treated in 2015

One of my relatives,Mr.KC Tiwari, had been treated for severe pain in his right leg with numbness years before, by allopathy along with traction and physiotherapy.
One day in mid of 2015 he called me to consult as the pain was there again ,not the same way but now pain was in right leg ,starting from calves and going upwards as soon as he started walking. and after a while the pain made it impossible to walk .He had to stop ,take a rest ,then only he could go further .
he had consulted an allopath and started physiotherapy again but pain was in constant progress ,affecting his day to day life .He was advised for traction again .At this stage he consulted me .I advised him to take the homoeopathic medicine before going through the traction process as I find surgery and traction the last options to follow ,although it becomes neccessary sometimes.
The symptoms for prescription were
1–increasing pain with motion ,relieved by rest .
2–Stiffness in legs as if some thing tight would break
I prescribed Causticum 1M-single dose
Ruta-1M Once a week
and Bryonia 30 tds
and told him to inform after a week .A slight but unsatisfactory response was there but response was there so continuing Ruta 1M wk ly i raised the power of Bryonia to 1M. I told him to report every 15 days,which he thankfully did and which most of others forget conveniently(specially frds n relatives)–his pain was minimized and now he could walk easily but sometimes a sudden wave of pain comes and goes as he reported me when I met him after a month
Pain that comes suddenly and goes suddenly is a keynote symptom for Belladona which was given in 1M single dose along with Bryonia 10M single dose .Since then no reporting of pain i.e.from September15 till today .

There are some more tips..
