Therapeutic symptoms of homeopathic remedy Equisetum Hyemale, described by E.B. Nash in his book, Leaders in Homeopathic Therapeutics, published in 1898….

This remedy is sometimes successful in cases which are not relieved by CANTH., There is as much inclination to urinate as with CANTH., and there is pain in the bladder, as if too full of urine, which must be voided in order to get relief from both pain and pressure, but urinating does not satisfy and he must soon go again. There is BURNING in the urethra when urinating, but there are larger quantities of urine discharged than with CANTH., which has CHARACTERISTICALLY very small amounts, but often repeated, even but a few drops at a time. EQUIS., like CHIMAPH., sometimes shows excess of mucus, and it is also very useful in enuresis. Both CHIMAPH., and EQUIS., need further proving to draw out their characteristic. EQUIS., sometimes has severe pain at the close of urination. (see BERB., NAT-M., SARS., THUJA.,).

Frequent inclination to urinate, with pain in bladder as if too full, which must be relieved; normal quantity at a time, sometimes excess of urine.
