section 10


Item if young people have fever, and have green urine, it shows that paralysis, or cramp, is coming. Item if one have a fever, with great pain in the head, and when the fever ceases the pain remain,589 with plethora and heaviness; then paralysis often follows; for nature expels590 the matter from the brain to the nerves, with evacuation of heaviness, but not with complete purging. Item the cold in the first stage tends to confusion591 of mind and spirit; and moisture in the second stage, after the cold, and therefore paralysis is seldom produced by heat.
