it was accompanied this time by throbbing in the top of the head, as of a vein too full in the brain, and a palpitating sensation in the stomach, extending through the oesophagus, as if a nerve was quivering, and gave, at times, a sensation of suffocating, as if something rose in the throat like a valve.

sensations seemed like those in hysteria,.

Pressure in both frontal eminences, after rising and dressing, in the morning, after a quarter of an hour, extending over the whole forehead to the vertex, and becoming more intense, and after twenty minutes changing to a pressive pain from within outward.

on going downstairs, the pain increased so much that I involuntarily pressed the palm of the hand on the painful spot, which momentarily relieved the pain, but it was only decidedly relieved in the open air.

this was not relieved in the open air, and was gradually increased in both these places.

about 1 P.M. the pressive sensation became less, and after 3 P.M. disappeared (from 20th dil.),.

Pain in head more acute, of a beating character, seated in the back part of the head an neck, gradually extending to the sides and forehead, the pain being almost insupportable, and greatly aggravated by moving or stooping.

these acute pains lasted about thee hours, when they gradually abated, but having periodical returns through the day, brought on by stooping,.

Tension and warmth in the epigastric region came on soon after the first dose, increased on the second day, diminished on the third, and disappeared on the fourth.

An extremely distressing pressive sensation in the abdomen, especially in the epigastric region, increasing to a pain on touch, usually disappearing within and hour after a dose, returning after every new dose, especially severe in the evening.

in spite of an undisturbed sleep the next night and increased appetite the next day, the pain increased until it was prevented by a walk immediately after taking the drug, or at least it was essentially diminished though each dose was increased.

but whenever to walk was omitted, either intentionally or accidentally, the distress returned in all its severity (seventh day),.
