Extremities, limbs


Limbs rigid; hands clasped across the breast and firmly clinched, so much so that on attempting to separate them a violent convulsive effort was made by the patient; then followed a writhing of the entire body, "clonic spasms,"

Marked muscular erethism, especially of the extremities, simulating chorea (after four hours),

(The limbs, especially the arms, are relaxed, with pressure here and there),

General affection of the extremities, especially of the legs, more towards the lower portion and more on the right side,


Upper extremities

Shoulder, Arm, and Elbow.

Pain in the left shoulder, as if it contained lead,

A sticking pain (rather distinct, though not very sharp) on the flexor side of the upper arm, shoulder, and elbow-joints, that continued by paroxysms for several weeks, but lasted only a short time, seeming to be seated in the bloodvessels,

Sensation of fomentation in the muscles of the upper arm,

Pain in the left upper arm, near the middle, nearer the elbow, as from the hard grasp of the hand (after one hour and a half),

Felt as though a string had been tied tightly around the arms, and all the blood had rushed into my hands (first evening),

Pain as if sprained, in some joints of the left little finger when grasping anything, in the morning (second day),


Lower extremities

Painful weakness in the lower extremities, as if he had taken a long journey. The backs of the feet are very painful, as though a hard body had fallen upon them, the farther above the ankle the less the pain. Although stepping on the foot aggravates the pain, yet he is obliged to constantly move the leg back and forth, on account of uneasiness (trampling), (first day),
