homeopathic treatment bedwetting Patient: boy, age 9.

Case description

A woman with a 9 years old child came at the clinic, with the following problem: the child has difficulties controlling his urination during the day and wets the bed at night. Enuresis is primary, thus the problem has been always present. The accidental bedwetting happens quite often, almost every other day, at night he wakes up rarely to go to the toilet.

Beside that problem, the child also suffers from eye twitching (frequent winking), which appeared 2 years ago, when he started attending school. He sleeps restlessly, changing his sleeping position a lot, speaks, twitches while sleeping and often has nightmares. He sweats in the back while trying to fall asleep. The child is very nervous, agitated, hardly concentrates, is short-tempered, prone to crying, sometimes aggression of episodes are present. The child gnaws his nails. He is afraid of the dark, of strangers, of people speaking rudely and vulgarly and of dogs.  It should be mentioned that at the age of three he was bitten by a dog, he got very scared to the point of wetting his pants and losing his stool.

Objectively, an inner agitation of the child was observed – his feet are always restless, and his hands are always searching to do something. The child is hyperactive. He is an extrovert, very social and talkative. He prefers meat to fish; he is moderately thirsty. Stool is without abnormalities.

Anamnesis: he is the first child, wanted pregnancy, which was without problems; the birth was natural, on time, without any complications. The child was growing up and developed according to his age, without any abnormalities.

Personal history:  the child has undergone two adenoidectomies, suffered from bronchitis and pneumonia.

After case analysis, the homeopathic remedy Zincum metalicum 200 was prescribed.

Follow up #1 (after 1 month):

At the beginning of treatment, the child was more aggressive, the eye twitching was more frequent, and bedwetting was daily. Then, every symptom started tapering off: he became calmer, friendlier, and less aggressive, eye twitching was less frequent, and cases of bedwetting were less in number.

Decision: Wait. No medication.

Follow up #2 (3 months since first visit)

The child feels well, he is less impulsive and less violent; the eye twitching disappeared, only when he puts his hat on some movements of facial mimic muscles can be seen in the frontal region. The patient started having headaches in the afternoon, after school, which are aggravated by loud noises. The child keeps gnawing his nails.  In the previous month only two cases of nocturnal enuresis was registered. Feet restlessness is still present.

Decision: The remedy Zincum metalicum 200 was repeatedly taken.

Follow up #3 (6 months since first visit) :

No complaints. No headaches. The patient is calmer, more tranquil. He stopped wetting his bed and gnawing his nails. No more eye twitching, except when he puts his hat on, but this becomes less obvious. The feet are less restless. The sleep is restful, no more nightmares.

Decision: Wait. No medication.

The case continued to be monitored until the problem disappeared.
