section 5


These are the indications preceding this fever: heaviness of the head, and puffiness of the eyes12, plethora of the veins, redness of the face, fatigue of the whole body as though after labour. The concomitant symptoms13 are frontal headache; the sick man imagines he sees a lighted candle before him14; perturbation of mind; something lacking in the sight; undulating full pulse; sweetness in the mouth; urine thick, strong and leaden-coloured on top15; itch in the nose, on the neck, and where the cupping horns are placed; shortness of breath; profound sleep; difficulty of conversation; and an imposthume at the base of the ears and the tongue. These symptoms are more pronounced in synochus than in synocha.
