Heaviness and a need to enlarge and then escape.

[Joy Lucas]

the cloud hanging over this remedy is one of heaviness and a need to enlarge and then escape.

The head is heavy and they feel stupid and gloomy. Many parts of the body become swollen or bloated, especially the eyes, lids, face, tongue. Escape comes in the form of rising

warmth from the stomach which turns into eructations which can be acid. There is mucous in the throat with a need to spit it out (an escape), there is an urgent need for stool to escape.

Urine retained and scanty and there is an unusual symptom with the urine (smoky) this might be a connection with original soot of the ammonia.

Benzoicum brings a gouty constitution (r. sided). Gout is all about retention and accumulation of crystals and stones –  emotionally with the ammoniums it is disappointments.

Benzoicum dwells persistently on the past (hear voices that might be connected to the past) they want to be carried, cuddled and nursed (protected);
