Severe compressing pain deep in the chest, noticed on stooping low down.
this pain seems rather in the region of the bodies of the vertebrae.

this lasted two weeks,.
Urine deposits a slightly grayish-yellow flocculent sediment.
the vessel is covered with reddish-yellow crystals of uric acid (from the urine of yesterday standing over night), the urine passed this morning is turbid like that of yesterday.
towards noon it also deposits a grayish-yellow sediment with crystals of uric acid.
the urine passed shortly before dinner is less turbid.
that passed in the afternoon is clear (ninth day),.
Violent pains in the right shoulder-joint.
whence they have extended from the scapula.
if she attempts to move the arm she finds that she is unable to do it, because it gives rise to a sensation as if the arm were broken.

Chelidonium majus. Greater Celandine. N. O. Papaveraceae. Tincture of entire fresh plant, at time of flowering.
But its closest analogue is Lycopodium Lycopodium, with which it holds a complementary relation.
I have often cured with Chel. when Lycopodium Lyc. was apparently indicated and failed to act well.
The juice of Chel. causes vesication when applied to the skin.
The juice is yellow, resembling bile.
Probably on the "signature" of the bile-like juice it was recommended as a remedy in jaundice by Galen and Dioscorides.
Given on the broad ground of organ-homoeopathy, in material or semi-material doses, it has achieved notable results in cases of liver disease.
But it has also fine indications.
The chief "keynote" for its employment is a continued, bruised, aching pain at the inferior angle of the right scapula Chel. acts on spleen and kidneys as well as liver.
It is also a venous medicine.
Paralytic symptoms are prominent.
There is great debility and drowsiness after eating and on waking.
Prefers hot things. Desire to lie down after a meal.
Aversion to move, feels tired on least exertion.
There is the Opium N/A sleepiness and yawning.
Yellowness of the skin; ulceration.
Chel. is a predominantly right-side medicine (like Sanguinaria Canadensis Sang. and Lycopodium Lyc.), and besides the right infra-scapular pain and the action on the liver it has neuralgia over the right eye and in right malar N/A bone, and also an action on the caecum and right ovary.
and on the base of the right lung.
In pneumonia with bilious symptoms it is one of the chief remedies.
Chel., like Lycopodium Lyc., has fan-like movement of alae nasi in chest affections.
There may be either constipation (clay-coloured stools), or diarrhoea with bright yellow stools.
There is nausea (of pregnancy) with desire for food amel. by drinking milk.
Desire for hot drinks, only water almost boiling will stay on stomach.
Chills or creeps accompany the headache or the jaundice.
Tenderness over stomach with sinking, gone feeling, at times reaching a state of painful anguish; sickness at stomach, all symptoms amel. by eating.
Chel. 6x cured at once. "Aversion to cheese" is an indication for Chel. in many gastric conditions.
Teste, who proved Chel., places it at the head of a group which includes Capsicum Annuum Caps. and Viola. od.
Both are bright yellow and pass to orange and brown on drying.
Some old-school authorities have recommended the juice of Chel. as a substitute for Gambogia gamboge as a hydragogue cathartic.
Among its ancient external uses was, as an application in eye affections, to chronic ulcers, and to warts.
In Teste's proving he emphasised the following symptoms "1.30 p.m. dull and heavy, deep-seated pain in whole right side of chest and right shoulder, without cough, but with embarrassed respirations.
This pain, which is at times accompanied by dull beatings in the chest, does not allow him to draw a long breath; it is not perceptibly aggravated by the motions of the arm.
The pain is particularly felt in the axilla and under the shoulder-blade.
a sort of numbness of the muscles in the region of the liver, and in the whole right side of the neck, face, and head.
apprehension of threatening pneumonia.
great anxiety. constant desire to stir and change one's position (lasts an hour and decreases gradually)."-"Extremely profuse emission of a whitish and foaming urine."-"2 p.m. drowsiness which is so marked, even in the open air, that she is near falling asleep while walking.
lasts half an hour." According to Rademacher Chel. acts on the centre of the liver.
Chel. has a strong action on the respiratory sphere.
A characteristic cough is caused by a sensation of "dust" in the air passages.
St. Clair Smith relates a case.
A young lady had had for several weeks a dry, racking, fatiguing cough night and day, agg. night, no expectoration and no pain.
She looked completely worn out.
The cough was excited by a sensation as if throat and larynx were full of dust.
Chel. 3, a powder every two hours, was given.
She only took three when the "dust" left the throat and with it the cough, and never returned.
Carleton Smith cured this "Dry cough through day with pain and stitches right side; severe hoarseness 5 p.m., voice scarcely audible." In rheumatic affections Chel. has a large field.
OEdema, heat, tenderness and stiffness are the leading indications.
Here is a case A baby girl had had rheumatism of both ankles for a week, when it settled in the right one, which became greatly swollen, very tender, painful and hot.
Constipated for two months previous, whitish stools.
Chel. improved in twelve hours, and entirely cured in a week.
The patient was a girl of six.
Both ankles were affected, feet much swollen and extended.
The slightest movement or touch extorted screams.
The only relief was constant bathing with hot water.
W. A. Burr cured a case of right sciatic rheumatism, of ten years' history, in a very corpulent woman, aet. 55.
In her case there were aggravations coming on in the afternoon and evening of each day, and lasting into the middle of the night.
During the paroxysms the outer ankle and lower leg became cyanotic, swelling around ankle, constriction above, great sensitiveness to touch and motion.
Very nervous during the spells.
Great external sensitiveness; aversion to touch, and agg. from it.
Pressure amel. some symptoms and agg. others.
Eating amel. stomach symptoms all complaints lessen after dinner.
Change of weather agg.; warmth agg.; cold water amel.
Open air agg. headache; pain in right eye; and causes chill; and drowsiness.
Motion agg. most symptoms.
Coughing and blowing nose amel. headache.
Rest amel. Lying on face amel. pain in kidneys and bladder.
Lying on left side amel. pain in stomach.
Many symptoms are agg. 4 a.m.; also 4 p.m. and afternoon.
Chelidonium is a remedy more suitable for acute diseases, though it cures certain chronic conditions. It is not a very deep acting remedy. It is about like Bryonia Bryonia in its general plane, length and depth of action.
It has been used principally in gastric and intestinal catarrhs, in acute and semi-chronic liver troubles, and in right-sided pneumonia.
Congestion and soreness in the liver, with jaundice.
Right-sided pneumonia, complicated with liver troubles, or jaundice."
This remedy seems to act throughout the system, but almost always along with it the liver is involved, and it is suitable for what the old people and the doctors called "biliousness" The patient is generally bilious, has nausea and vomiting. Distension of the veins. Yellowish grey color of the skin.
"Sadness and anxiety."
Brooding over some sort of trouble generally runs through the mental state.
"Anxiety, allowing no rest," keeping the patient uneasy day and night.
Sadness, as if she had committed a crime; as if some dreadful thing was going to happen. So sad that she thinks she must die
Distaste for mental exertion and conversation.
If you examine those medicines that act primarily upon the liver, that slow down the action of the liver, you will find the word melancholia."
With heart troubles, great excitement, With liver troubles, slowing down of the mental state, inability of the mind to work, sluggishness of the mind, inability to think, inability to meditate, slow pulse. Sluggishness of the whole economy.
Dizziness The sensorium is very commonly disturbed, and the patient is dizzy.
"Things go round in a circle."
Dizziness comes, and it does not let up until nausea, and sometimes vomiting, follows.
"So much turning in the head that he vomits.
Confusion of mind.
Loss of consciousness and fainting."
These are also common features with liver troubles.
The mind symptoms are present more or less with the following liver symptoms.
there are pains of a dull aching character, "soreness" Bruised pains. Tenderness of the liver to touch. Aching pains, that seem to involve the whole right lobe of the liver.
creating a sensation of fullness. Pressure upwards, with difficulty of breathing. Pressure downwards, sympathetic with the stomach, with the nausea and vomiting.
Right scapula And then more intense pain felt under the right scapula.
"Dull aching pains under the right scapula; sharp, shooting pains under the right scapula"; these complicate themselves again with pneumonia, with pleurisy.
It cures pneumonia and pleurisy; it cures various forms of congestion in the liver, when these pains go from before backward, and seem to be felt through the back.
"Stitching in the region of the liver, extending through to back.
Hard pains felt through the back."
Some patients will describe these pains as shooting pains; some as tearing pains, and others as sharp pains, going through the right hypochondrium or through the right lobe of the liver to the back.
"Pains from the region of the liver, shooting towards the back and shoulders.
Spasmodic pain in the region of the liver.
Pressing pain in the region of the liver."
In congestion or inflammation, fullness and enlargement, semi-chronic cases, or even acute, this medicine proves suitable for such conditions. The right hypochondrium is tense and painful to pressure.
This remedy has cured gall stone colic. Practitioners, who know how to direct a remedy, relieve gall stone colic in a few minutes. We have remedies that act on the circular fibres of these little tubes, causing them to relax and allow the stone to pass painlessly.
In a perfect state of health, of course, there are no stones in the bile that is held in the gall bladder, but this little cystic duct opens its mouth and a little gall stone engages in it, and it creates and irritation by scratching along the mucous membrane of that little tube.
When this pain is a shooting, stabbing, tearing, lancinating pain, extending through to the back, Chelidonium will cure it. The instant it relieves the patient says
"Why, what a relief; the pain has gone."
The remedy has relieved that spasm, the little duct opens up and the stone passes out through the ductus communis choledochus. Every remedy that is indicated by the symptoms will cure gall stone colic.
A patient lying in bed, with great heat, extreme sensitiveness, cannot have the body touched, screaming with pains, red face and hot head, will gall stone colic, will be relieved in three minutes by Belladonna Bell, but that is not at all like this remedy. Natrum Sulphuricum Natrum sulph and many other remedies have cured gall stone colic in a few minutes, when the symptoms agreed.
Now as to the pneumonia, it is generally of the right side, or right sided spreading to the left. The right-sidedness is marked, and but small portions of the left lung are involved. The pleura is generally involved, and so there are stitching, tearing pains.
One may not practice long before be will find a Chelidonium patient, sitting up in bed with high fever, bending forward upon his elbows, holding himself perfectly still, for this medicine has as much aggravation from motion as Bryonia Bry All of the pains are extremely aggravated from motion.
This patient is sitting with a pain that transfixes him; he cannot stir, he cannot move without - the pain shooting through him like a knife.
The next day you will see that his skin is growing yellow. If you see him in the beginning Chelidonium will relieve him and you will prevent that pneumonia. It is not uncommon in children, and it is extremely common in adults.
Do not get confused with Bryonia Bryonia Both are violently worse from motion. Bryonia Bryonia wants to lie on the painful side, or wants to lie on the back if the pneumonia is mostly in the posterior part of the right lung. In Chelidonium he is worse from touch and motion.
Belladonna Bell has that extremely painful, tearing, rending, of the right lung with pleurisy, but in Belladonna Bell, one cannot touch that right side, cannot press it, but must lie on the other side and he cannot move.
Cannot stand a jar of the bed, because of the extreme sensitiveness to motion I mention all three in this particular way because they have some things in common, but the remedies are different.
Chelidonium has cough with chest symptoms of the right side, liver affections, and the mental affections that commonly belong to these, violent aggravation from motion. The pains are ameliorated by heat. Pain that extends to the stomach, ameliorated by heat.
Mental symptoms ameliorated by eating. Craves hot milk; hot fluids. Eating warm food ameliorates the liver, the chest and stomach symptoms.
"Bilious vomiting. Retching; bilious eructations.
Nausea and retching during an attack of anxiety."
"A feeling of anguish in the pit of the stomach.
Persistent pain in the stomach; aggravated by motion and ameliorated by eructations.
Constriction and sensitiveness in the pit of the stomach."
These are all aggravated by touch and ameliorated by eating.
"Constant aching pain in the stomach, ameliorated by food.
Constrictive, pinching pain in the stomach better from drawing up the limbs and lying on the left side, ameliorated by eating."
"Opacity of the cornea."
Bruised pain in the eyes.
Right supraorbital neuralgia."
In many instances it prefers the right side.
In the face the jaundice is the most marked thing that is expressed and, then, we have the dirty gray complexion.
The head is aggravated from motion, aggravated from beat, aggravated from a warm room, aggravated from warm applications. There is where it differs from the internal or general state. There are numerous headaches.
Periodical bilious sick headaches, with vomiting of bile, brought on from exposure to beat, from being overheated, aggravated from motion, wants to lie perfectly quiet in a dark room, and better from vomiting bile.
Old-fashioned bilious sick headaches.
Bilious diarrhoea. Along with jaundice, clay-like, pale, faecal, puttylike stool. Bileless stool. Stool too light colored. Stool quite white in children. Diarrhea and constipation alternate. Stool brown, white, watery, green mucus, thin, pasty, bright yellow, or gray tinged with Yellow.
Voice and respiration Hoarseness.
"While coughing, pain in the larynx, and pressure in the larynx."
The difficult breathing comes on with liver symptoms and pneumonia and chest troubles in general.
"Difficult respiration, with short fits of coughing.
Short, quick breathing.
Anxiety as if he must choke.
Difficult breathing; tightness over the chest as if breathing would be hindered."
It has also nightly attacks of humid asthma. This is brought on from every change of the weather.
All its complaints are brought on from changes in the weather. He cannot stand weather changes, either too cold or too warm. Rheumatic complaints in the shoulders, hips and limbs, from changes in the weather.
With complaints of the liver, lungs and chest, there are coughs. They are spasmodic. The chronic cough is violent, spasmodic, dry, coming in paroxysms.
"Spasmodic cough, without expectoration."
After it has existed a while there wilt be some expectoration.
"Repeated attacks of short cough Short cough, with little grayish phelgm.
Rattling; fatiguing cough".
Limbs In the limbs there are rheumatic and neuralgic pains. Neuralgia of the limbs in general, most violent. Limbs feel heavy and stiff. Limbs flabby. Later the patients runs down somewhat, weak heart, weak circulation; dropsical conditions of the limbs. Great restlessness.
"Trembling and twitching of the limbs.
Indisposition to work."
The neuralgias are more common in the head and face than in thelower parts of the body, in the limbs and in the extremities.
It has sharp, febrile attacks, such as found in pneumonia with chill and in inflammation of the liver. It has cured intermittent fever, coming in the afternoon and evening.
Itching of the skin. jaundice. It has cured old putrid ulcers.
