Argentum metallicum (Silver)

General.
Emaciation, a gradual drying up, desire for fresh air, dyspnoea, sensation of expansion and left-sided pains are characteristic. The chief action is centered on the articulations and their component elements, bones, cartilages, and ligaments. Here the small blood vessels become closed up or withered and carious affections result. They come on insidiously, lingering, but progress. The larynx is also a special center for this drug.

Raw, hawking, gray, JELLY-LIKE MUCUS, and throat sore on coughing. PROFUSE AND EASY morning expectoration.

Respiratory.
HOARSENESS Aphonia. Raw, sore feeling when coughing. Total loss of voice of professional singers. Larynx feels sore and raw. EASY EXPECTORATION, LOOKING LIKE BOILED STARCH.
