I gave Lac Caninum 10m. (Swan), four doses daily for three or four weeks, to a lady of 25 years of age, in excellent health, except that she had never menstruated.

From Nov. 8th until Jan.5th suffered from the following. They were so evident to her that she came into my office crying, fearing she was contracting Consumption. I give them in their order of appearance:
Clavicles sore to touch. Feels, as if she wanted to fix shoulders so it would not feel strained. Pain and stiffness up right sterno-cleido mastoideus. Throat, which had been getting well, suddenly one evening grew rapidly worse, but this time on the left side. Soreness from right clavicle down to third and fourth ribs worse on moving less on left side. Fears Consumption. Soreness thorough chest to back.
Cramped feeling in chest, wants to stretch up and back. Lungs feel, as if fastened to chest, worse while writing. Right clavicle feels, as if out of place, worse by moving shoulder. Pains down right arm and in fingers, which feel cramped. Does not seem to have the same power in right hand. S
ore across midchest during forced expiration; feels, just as if she had been struck. Veins in hands look bluer than usual; they are swollen. Every gets sore. Sore spot just to right of mid-sternum, worse from lifting or from pressure. Right cheek burns like fire and is red after coming in from the cold. (She remarked; “if this was the cold alone, why wasn’t my left cheek red?”).
