Pains, pressive, drawing or tearing of parts where bones lie near the surface.

Ailments: from suppressed grief and terrors of conscience, from duty not done or bad act committed.

Headache in anemic patients, with flickering before eyes or dim vision, on rising in morning.

Flickering before eyes, fiery sparks, as of various colors, glittering needles, dim vision of fog or smoke.

Satiety after a few mouthfuls (Lycopodium), food then becomes repugnant, causes nausea in throat and palate.
