Now LACHESIS is taken for under 'one drug' blog. My beloved master E.B.Nash has detailed case in his materia medica under medicine Lachesis.Brief description of case:
* A very obstinate constipation in an old syphilitic case was treated by NASH.
* In this with very severe attacks of colic, the pains seemed to extend all through the abdomen, and always came on at night.
* After trying various remedies with discouragement, NASH got the characteristic symptom of LACH. from the patient i.e."Doctor, if I could only keep awake all time, I would never have another attack. "I looked askance at him. "I mean," said he, "that I sleep into the attack, and waken in it. "
* A dose LACH. 200 had the patient and never had another attack of pain.
* From that day the bowels of the patient also became perfectly regular and remained so.
In this case the characteristic symptom, " worse during sleep " has been well established.I will post my own case in the next opportunity.
