Persons suffering from psychomotor agitation are very active, compulsive, anxious and make frequent movements for no apparent reason. They find it difficult to sit still or to stay quiet, which can be annoying or even tiresome for those around them.
Psychomotor agitation especially affects children. It can manifest itself in different ways and is either mild or severe. People who suffer from this condition feel a constant need to be in motion. They wave their arms or swing their legs when they are seated. Sometimes, they run endlessly in the room in which they are and are never able to stay still. They move a lot when eating, play with their fingers, constantly manipulate an object or spend their time standing up and sitting back down. Some types of psychomotor agitation cause a movement of the whole body and prevent the patient from carrying out a sustained task. They may even be associated with a phobia or a sleep disorder and become a source of aggressiveness and/or anger fits. That is why children suffering from this condition are often unbearable.
Sometimes, a child can be in a temporary state of psychomotor agitation because of a mitigating circumstance. He or she can, for example, suffer from a sleep disorder after a traumatic experience or become agitated due to a worm infestation. Taking certain antibiotics or other allopathic drugs may also induce an agitation of the members.
To reduce agitation of the hands, take 5 granules of Kalium Bromatum 15 CH once a day. To treat aggressiveness accompanied by excessive salivation, take 5 granules of Mercurius Solubilis 15 CH once a day. The symptoms of this behavioural disorder will slowly disappear after 3 months. However, if the disease is rather severe, a treatment with Natrum muriaticum, Tarentula Hispana, Stramonium or Medorrhinum is far more effective.
A dose of Coffea Cruda 9 CH, administered at bedtime, will relieve children who become agitated due to a happy event. A deworming treatment with Cina 9 CH will also be suitable for treating patients suffering from worm infestation. Un granule of Zincum metal 9 CH, to be sucked at bedtime, can alleviate behavioural disorders caused by allopathic drugs.
When a child suffers from a condition of psychomotor agitation that has been lasting for over three months, it is necessary to consult a doctor, especially if this behavioural disorder is the source of educational underachievement and if the child is rejected by his circle of acquaintances, his friends in particular. It is also advisable to go see a physician in case the disease’s symptoms persist or reappear during the course of treatment.
Good to know: Allopathic drugs used to treat psychomotor agitation can also lead to subsequent health issues. That is why it is better to resort to homoeopathic remedies, as they have no side effects and are able to provide relief to the child as soon as possible.
