Argentum nitricum (Arg-n.)
Argentum nitricum (Arg-n.) is a remedy when emotional and gastrointestinal (digestive) symptoms dominate. The person is prone to flatulence (gassiness) with loud explosive belches or noisy diarrhea. They are nervous, anxious and susceptible to strange thoughts which aren’t acted on, e.g. jumping from a height, throwing things at people, dropping a baby that’s being carried. Fears and anxieties may involve crowds, being alone, anticipation, running late, heights, fainting, or undertaking new things. They’re empathetic people but impulsive, suggestible, volatile, and weep or laugh easily. Those needing Arg-n overheat easily, feel worse in warm rooms, and after eating sweet things (which they may crave). They’re better for cool or open air, or washing with cool water. Pains may feel pressing or splinter-like.
This remedy is used for all types of fear and anxiety brought on by an over-active imagination. Stage fright claustrophobia and anxiety in the face of unexpected situations are all helped by Argent.nit.

Sometimes there is also a sense of great difficulty in resisting reckless behavior and dangerous impulses, such as jumping from a high window. Anxiety induced sweats or palpitations are also helped by Argent.nit.
This remedy is given for digestive complaints, for example, diarrhea, flatulence and vomiting, and pulsating headaches with a slow inset which are caused by eating too many sweet foods or nervous excitement.
