Check if most symptoms of any of these remedies match with most of your symptoms:
Arnica 30 : Osteoarthritis following an injury to (e.g., a fracture of) a joint. Apart from pain and stiffness, there is a sore, beaten-up feeling in the joint. Everything on which the affected joint lies, seems too hard. Joint-pains are worse from touch (massage) or heat (unlike Rhus tox). Resting the affected joint does not relieve pain.
Bryonia 30 : Joint-pain which gets worse from least motion or exertion but improves with absolute rest (compare Rhus tox). Applying heat to the joint or lying on it helps (compare Arnica). Pressing, massaging or bandaging the joint also helps.
Calc phos 30 : Osteoarthritis in lean, emaciated persons. Apart from pain and stiffness, there is a sensation of numbness and crawling in the affected joint. Symptoms are worse in damp, cold weather but better in, hot, dry weather.
Causticum 30 : Chronic osteoarthritis with jointdeformities from contractures of muscles. Pain is worse in clear fine weather but lessens in the monsoon.
Rhus tox 30 : Osteoarthritis characterised by stiffness, pain and a feeling of soreness in the affected joint (compare Arnica). Pain and stiffness are worse after rest (inactivity) but gradually diminish on walking around (Unlike Bryonia). Joint-problems are worse in rainy weather but better by application of dry heat.
