-SUDARSHAN SR ,NON MALARIAL FEVERS
KENT: “When we come to the study of Bry., we find it is a most persistent remedy; its complaints develop slowly, i.e. , slowly for acute conditions…..They increase into violence, but the violence is not the first flash as in Acon., or Bell., and hence it conforms to a type of disease with continued fever…..The complaints come on after taking cold, not the first few hours, as in Acon. Or Bell., but the day after the exposure he begins to feel uneasy and he sneezes and the nose discharges, there is rawness in the chest, and in a day or so he has a chill and comes down with some inflammatory trouble, pneumonia or pleurisy.”
”There is an extreme state of irritability in Bry.; every world which compels him to answer a question or to think will aggravate him.”
”Sluggish, aggravated from motion, aggravated from being talked to, wants to lie still in bed; very great irritability, which is as extreme as that found in Nux or Cham….Following the early sluggishness, there is later a state of complete stupefaction in Bry., in which he becomes quite unconscious, as in typhoid.”
”In rheumatic complaints in pneumonia and in typhoid conditions, when he is roused from this stage of stupefaction he is confused, sees images, thinks he is away from home and wants to be taken home…..The delirium is of a low type; it is not the flashing wild excitement of Bell. Or Stram.; it is the very opposite; he talks and wanders and does not say much unless he is disturbed.”
”In a damp climate, Bry is one of the most frequently indicated remedies.”
”The face is mottled and purple, with congestion on a marked Bry. State. The eyes are red and congested; he is listless, does not want to move, to speak or to do anything, because all these things are motion, are efforts, and they make him worse.”
”Hot, bloated, red face.”
”Constant motion of the mouth as if the patient were chewing, in brain affections of children.”
ALLEN: “Complaints: when warm weather sets in after cold days; from cold drinks or ices in hot weather; after taking cold or getting heated in summer; from exposure to draft, cold wind; suppressed discharges of menses, milk, or eruption of acute exanthema; fevers caused by getting wet.”
”Children dislike to be carried or to be raised.”
”Cannot sit up from nausea and faintness.”
”Great thirst for large quantities, at long intervals.”
