section 6


Note however that there is a difference between paralysis, and cramp; for movement and perception are prevented in paralysis, but in cramp only movement is prevented. Item in paralysis there is pain in the sick side, and in cramp in the healthy side. Item in cramp the sick side draws the healthy side towards it but not so in paralysis. Item in paralysis the oppilation is in the origin of the nerve, and in cramp it is in the whole nerve.
