When can I use belladonna to treat low back pain?

Belladonna is a homeopathic remedy that can be used for violent, acute low back pain. It is suitable when:
  • The pain is severe and can be burning, throbbing, shooting or spasmodic.
  • Intense spasms come on suddenly and leave just as quickly.
  • The pain might be worse from motion or jarring, touch, taking cold, or a draft of air.
  • The person is worse from lying on the painful side and is better when sitting up; also the pain worsens at 3 p.m. and after midnight.
