“Mental symptoms not brought out. Used clinically when diarrhoeas have ceased suddenly and brain troubles have come on. Congestion of brain: but this is entirely clinical”.

Headaches, with red face and throbbing, like Bell., but relieved by tight bandaging and a warm room.

Spasms about the eyes: jerking: squint. Neuralgias of face, violent supra and infra orbital neuralgias; especially of right side; better heat and pressure; worse from cold.

Pains in stomach with clean tongue. Colic ameliorated by doubling up, like Coloc., and by heat. “The colic is not so markedly relieved by heat in Coloc., but is relieved by pressure.” Distension of abdomen with much pain. Radiating. Compelled to walk and groan. Meteorism. “It is side to cure cows of this condition. Colchicum will cure when they are distended with gas after being turned into clover patches.”. . .

Never pains, then, with spasm, cramp, and colic, suggest Mag. phos. But one seems to notice that it is not indicated where there is fever:-except in some fever where there is cramp. The great sphere of the drug is to torture, and soothe, nerve tissue.
