On the right side of the chest, a place affected with a pain, as if something hard were pressing upon the ribs,

During a deep inspiration, under the second or third rib of the right side, in a place of the size of half a dollar, a pain pressing from within outwards,

Sharp stitches on the right side, near the handle of the sternum (after eight hours),

Sharp stitches on the right side, near the nipple,

In the right side of the chest, for a minute, such a violent stitch from within outwards that he can neither expire nor inspire (when sitting), (after twenty-eight hours),

Cutting, as with a fine knife, across the cartilages of the false ribs on the left side; mornings in bed after waking, the spot pains on pressure as if bruised (4th dil.),

A horizontal cutting, as with a knife, on the left side near the pit of the stomach, in the cartilage of the false ribs, after breakfast when quiet (5th dil.),

Pain, as if sprained, in the cartilage of the left false ribs, horizontally across the rib near the pit of the stomach,

Mornings, in bed after waking, transient cutting, as with a fine knife, on the left side near the pit of the stomach, in the cartilages of the false ribs; returns several times, and after awhile alternates with a pain in the same place on the right side, which last is more like a circumscribed pressure (5th dil.),

Dull stitches on the left side under the last false ribs,

Dull stitches under the third true rib of the left side, remaining the same during both expiration and inspiration,

Slowly intermittent, dull stitches under the cartilages of the last true ribs on the left side, over the pit of the stomach (in the evening in bed), (after thirty-one hours),

Sharp stitches between the sixth and seventh true ribs of the right side, increased during an inspiration,

Pressing stitches on the right side of the chest and in the sternum, increased only by deep inspirations (after a few minutes),

Cutting stitch transversely across below the last rib of the left side, when stooping sideways and leaning on the arm,

Pressive pain in the sternum externally,

Prickings under the xiphoid cartilage of the sternum,

Violent pressure on the sternum internally, increased by every motion, especially by stooping and then rising again,

A sticking-pinching pain in the left side of the sternum; most violent when sitting bent, and is uninfluenced either by expiration or inspiration (after eight hours),

Fine stitches inside of the upper part of the sternum, from within outwards (after forty-eight hours),

A momentary but frightful stitch in the left side of the chest (praecordial region), as if in the diaphragm (2d trit.),

A pinching, pressive pain in a place, as large as a half dollar, in the right side of the chest below the axilla; at noon, while at rest, on pressing on it a bruised pain remains (4th dil.),

A painful drawing in the right side of the thorax, about one and one-half inches below the axilla, paining, on strong pressure, as if bruised; while at rest after a meal (6th dil.),


Laughing produces mucus in larynx, and excites cough,

When going upstairs, or stooping, mucus gets into the air-passages, which is expelled by a single fit of coughing,

On quietly inspiring, two tones (as from a bassoon, a low and a high) sounded at the same time from low down in the throat (just before going to sleep evening), (4th dil.),

In the throat (larynx), a remarkable shattering kind of a crack or crash, with almost a metallic reverberation (like that heard from the ice breaking up in the spring), (3d trit.),

Rawness and soreness in the upper part of the larynx, when coughing, not when swallowing,

A dull cutting, which becomes a stitch, in the air-passages, from below upwards, occasioning two or three fits of cough; it continues even after the cough; the cough produces a kind of watery expectoration, which, however, does not relieve the irritation to cough (after twenty-four hours),

It seems like a raw spot in the windpipe, in the region of the suprasternal fossa; worse when speaking, talking, or singing,

Pain in the cricoid cartilage, caused by a draught of air, with a feeling of a stopper in the throat, and on pressing on it a bruised pain,
