Case I.-Natrum Sulph: Mrs. A. A. B., aged 48 Gnawing pain in back of head, extending down spine, brought on from grief and protracted anxiety.
General mental sluggishness.
Throbbing in back of the neck.
Has had much trouble with back of head and neck since an attack of sunstroke many years ago.
Bowels constipated, no stool for days, no urging; but the head symptoms are improved after a stool.
Dreadful bitter taste in the mouth.
The headache is mostly in the morning and gets better after moving about a while.
The other symptoms have been better and worse for years.
Coming in wave-like attacks, but never well.
Cathartics once gave relief, but nothing seems to give her any comfort now.
She was given a few powders of Natrum sulph, 500, with instructions to dissolve one and take of it frequently at the beginning of every spell of growing “bilious,” as she called it, and to hold the rest of them. She has never taken but the first, she is holding the others.
All the symptoms that remained through the interim of the more severe attacks have departed, and she is perfectly well.
