[John Henry Clarke M.D.]

Clinical - Vertigo every time he blows his nose with a sense of fullness in the ears.

Kent présenté par le Dr Robert Séror.

Mind: Picture of something on fire; itching (and burning)/rubs and scratches wherever the eruption appears. 

Impatient/willing to quarrel/anxious/fear of death; poor memory/disclined to work; is BUSY scratching to relieve the itching and BUSY walking to relieve the restlessness,

that interruption makes impatient and ready to quarrel.

Head: The dull frontal headache begins on waking at 5 h. and passes away after lying awake for a while; during the fore-noon there is pain, fullness and pressure in forehead with heat of the face, < in spells until afternoon when it ext. to the outer part of r. orbital ridge and ext. through to the occiput +  nausea which lasts until evening.

Some of the head pains go from the cerebellum to the forehead or r. temple/boring pain in the temples come on several times a day; the pain coming and going across the forehead just above the eyes; a rending (= schießend) pain in back of the eyeballs.

1. Headache < least motion, 2. intense vertigo coming in the afternoon in a spot over r. eye. Itching and stinging of the scalp.

Eye: In r. eye a feeling of fullness ext. 1. parotid gland, 2. sub lingual, 3. r. side of the face and head.

The margins of the lids sore/crusted over; lids inflamed < in the morning with a discharge of sticky fluid; eyeballs inflamed with stye-like ulceration.

Rending pains in the eyeballs; could not keep his eyes open yet it pained to keep them shut; eyes feel tired. + heaviness            .

Ears: parotid glands swollen/soreness on pressure; pain as if mumps commencing: sharp pains in both ears followed by watery discharge of the same sticky character that

0is present in the saliva.

Nose: watery discharge with bloody scabs on the inside; small scabs come from the nose which may be dry or moist and bloody; usually mixed with a copious discharge which may be greenish or light colored

and the head feels stuffed; the itching, stinging and tickling are always present; rubs and scratches because his nose itches in-/outside and the more he rubs it the more it burns so he stops for a while until he is

driven to rub and scratch again only to be compelled to stop while there is little skin left on his nose.

On top of his nose is a shining redness like a rum blossom; the nose is swollen and the eruption on it contains a clear colourless fluid; as the swelling goes down it is followed by itching and to rub it only increases

the desire for more rubbing.

Pain in the posterior nares with green scabs with bleeding after removal of the scabs.

Epistaxis morning and night on blowing the nose.

Red like erysipelas; shining red, and sore to touch; it is more marked on r. side in the beginning and then ext. both sides of the nose and to the face.

An ineffectual desire to sneeze.

Face: Pain over r. malar bone going to the l. next day and here you will see one of the characteristic red spas the size of a 25 cent piece feeling as if red pepper had been rubbed in; from the malar bone shooting

pains to the temple and forehead in the evening, < by setting the jaws together.

The sub maxillary gland swollen and tender on pressure.

The eruption on the face and between the eyes contains a colourless fluid; there will also be swelling and puffiness under the eyes; in keeping with this remedy we find the heat and redness of the whole r. side

of the face with a sore bruised feeling.

Mouth: Constant wetting of the lips < dryness and burning; a symptom common to many remedies perhaps from nervousness; saliva leaves the lips sticky; whitish saliva leaves a bad taste in the mouth in the morning

on waking; a sickish taste as if he had been drinking warm mineral water.

Tongue coated white/dry/swollen/thick on waking/numb (with ulceration at the tip following scarlet fever). Edge of the tongue covered with a double row of small painful vesicles.

Periodical attacks of salivation for months; at night the pillow is wet and in the daytime the saliva accumulates and causes continued swallowing (Merc).

Throat: On rising in the morning must spend much time hawking up from the pharynx dark green scabs and strings of tough mucus tinged with dark blood and coughing from the trachea green scabs corresponding

to the green discharge from the nose.

Burning and dryness of the throat with soreness in throat and in the posterior nares on swallowing solids or fluids.

R. side of the throat always sore.

Magen: Appetite increased but the food does not digest; it sours in the stomach; appetite ravenous and he must have his dinner on the minute or he feels faint; (morning/cannot wait for breakfast); sour condition of

the stomach with nausea (day and night); thought of food can bring on nausea with gagging and retching and inability to vomit; with the disordered stomach are sickening pains and eructations of much offensive gas.

Thirst for cold water which causes burning in the stomach with urging to stool, followed by loose and dark brown offensive stool, much tenesmus lasting several days and gradually subsiding into painless diarrhoea.

Abdomen: On the abdomen blotches the size of a 25 cent piece,

Itching/burning, with little pimples on the blotches; this is the form of the eruption wherever it is present.

A dull pain r. in the region of the kidney ext. up the back to the occiput.

Cramps in abdomen during stool with rumbling and the passing of much offensive flatus; these colicky pains come on about 10 h. lasting from 1 to 3 hours.

The usual desire for morning stool is absent;

Rektum: Itching and burning of the anus; it is scalding hot and raw as from a bite; burning of the glans penis and there is a strong smelling discharge from the glans; the itching of the scrotum comes from spots like bee

stings; these spots are of the usual circumscribed character that swell and burn and itch; rubbing < itching/stinging/burning (= general).

Stool: scanty, lumpy, and expelled with effort; the first part of the stool is hard and scratches the anus; it is followed by a soft stool; after stool he has the sensation that he has not finished so he sits and strains until

stool comes. (Merc.)

Female organs: The itching of the vulva is so intense that she feels as if she could tear it to pieces; this symptom returned at intervals for years, cured by Culx.

Menses come too soon with a profuse dark clotted flow; violent pains in the uterus compelling her to go to bed.

Throat: Hoarse can scarcely speak a word; hoarseNESS in the morning.

Respiration: Deep sighing breathing with constant desire for a deep breath; breath foul and it seemed as if he could smell it himself.

Cough: distressing cough caused by burning in the chest; a whistling strangling choking cough with red face and water running from the eyes or it may be a dry hacking cough, present day and night; the cough is mostly

in the morning with the feeling as if he would vomit; with the cough there is pain low down in the back; there is coughed up a small amount of yellowish white expectoration; sometimes there is one constant racking

cough lasting fifteen minutes ending in a long loud inspiration with blue face and protruding eyes followed by great languor and sweat.

Constant desire to sneeze and cough # discharge of quantities of mucus from the throat which does not relieve the inclination to cough.

Chest: In the apex of the r. lung there is soreness < deep breathing or raising r. arm, and occasional dull pain in the lower part of the r. lung; a painful condition when you consider the desire for deep breathing

which is present with oppression and anxiety in the chest; other symptoms give him much trouble; a sensation of fullness in r. lung, soreness on stooping, leaning forward, raising the r. shoulder, and with it all

there is, the sensation of a rubber band around the r. lung; not all the pains are dull, there are sudden cutting pains running up and down lasting a minute; there is rawness, a bruised feeling in the right chest;

drawing, clawing pains in the right lung going to the left lung and staying there; these pains lasting several hours each day; with these conditions you would expect soreness on stooping, leaning forward, or

raising the right shoulder.

Extremities: Hands/fingers hot and burning, „As if frozen“, with PAIN; the burning of the palms and on the thumb is as if the hand had been rubbed against nettles; itching, burning, as if he must tear the flesh

for relief while the back of the hands felt cold and benumbed.

Rose red, colored, burning eruption on the arm < heat; arms and hands are numb and prickling; there is the everlasting itching that is present all through this remedy; the eruption with its colourful fluid, burning

after scratching and with it the desire to tear the skin off.

Coldness of the r. hand while the left hand is warm.

Lower limbs feel heavy with an uneasy restlessness > open air; his feet are tired all day long yet he must drag himself into the open air for relief; he wishes that he knew some place where he could put his poor,

tired, heavy limbs that would give him rest.

On the thigh there is the blotch the size of a twenty-five cent piece, with little pimples on it, that itches and burns like a flea bite.

There is aching of the legs from the knee down; there is no position that will make the pain less so, he must get up out of his chair and take a walk in the open air; there is little comfort to his feet while walking

as the soles are tender and there is intense itching on the tops of the feet.

Sleep: restless with much tossing about in sleep; the heat of the bed causes him to waken frequently; he must rise early in the morning to move around for relief, he is unrefreshed by sleep which has been restless,

and full of dreams of quarrels, fights, and of the dead.

Hot flushes „As if a chill“ would follow, followed by warm perspiration which is strong smelling and sticky; this stickiness is also noticed in the saliva.

Skin: His skin torments him almost beyond endurance, itching, burning, heat, all combine to make him miserable; the skin feels better while scratching but worse after scratching; there is no comfort at home or abroad,

in bed or out of it and a place of amusement is not to be thought of; he scratches which makes more trouble yet he must scratch to relieve that terrible, constant itching; you may truthfully say that this remedy has

many outward manifestations.

R. sided with the feeling of having been poisoned; sharp stinging pains all over the body like needles; lightning like; darting here and there, < light pressure; > hard pressure.

Head, nose and limb symptoms seem to grow < until 19 h. > 20 h.; in an hour or two they are gone; symptoms seem most severe from 18 – 19 h.

All symptoms, pain, itching, burning < in a warm room/> in open air, although he is so tired and weak that he can scarcely move, cannot walk straight, with soreness and aching all over the body, yet he is so nervous

that he finds it impossible to keep still; there is almost constant motion of the hands and feet.
