If we ourselves are perfectly clear as to the meaning of these expressions, we will commonly glean the meaning of the patient. It is important to record the language of the patient, yet often a patient will say something which you can see he does not mean at all, and it then becomes necessary to put in a parenthesis what he really means. For instance, a patient says
"I have such a pain in my chest," with the band on the abdomen, or a woman when menstruating will say the pain is in the stomach when you know it is in the uterus.
Patients must be questioned oftentimes as to their statements, or requested to place the hand upon the painful part.

A peculiar kind of plethora is found running through Aesculus Hippocastanum, a vascular fullness which affects the extremities and the whole body, and there are symptoms showing that the brain is similarly affected.
