Extremities, limbs

Cracking of the joints, not without a painful sensation on moving them,

Loss of power in different limbs; even slight motion caused a bruised sensation, especially in the hip-joint,

Falling asleep of an arm, hand, and foot,

Upper extremities

Falling asleep of both arms,

Falling asleep of the arms and hands, at night, in sleep; she was awakened by the crawling pain (after eight hours),

Falling asleep of both arms and hands, with a kind of immobility (after a quarter of an hour); recurring several times during the day and lasting half an hour,

The arms, especially the forearms, feel very heavy, and if as bruised,

Dull pain, with sensation of paralysis, in the left arm,

Bruised pain, immediately, on slight motion of the arms,


Muscular twitchings on the top of the shoulder, in the morning, while lying in bed; both visible and felt,

Cracking in the shoulder-joint on moving it suddenly, with sensitive pain as if the arm would be dislocated,

Feeling in the left shoulder-joint, as though the arm would be easily dislocated, as if it were lying loose in the joint (after a few days),

At times, on moving the upper arm, a pain, within the shoulder-joint, as if the head of the humerus were lying loosely within the capsule of the joint and would be dislocated,

A tensive aching in the shoulder-joint, with cracking in it, on moving the upper arm outward,

Bruised sensation in both shoulders,

Some sensitive shocks in a small spot on the back of the shoulder,


Sudden, violent tearing pain in the right elbow-joint, soon disappearing,


A pain in the right forearm extending obliquely to the thumb,

A slight pain in a small spot on the left forearm, not far from the elbow, whereby the elbow is spasmodically and involuntarily thrown upward, causing him to start (after nine minutes),


Dull pain in the right hand,

A kind of intermitting drawing, so that every intermission causes a transient burrowing in a small spot; worse when resting the forearm upon anything, whereby a benumbing warmth spreads over the hand,

Tensive drawing in the left metacarpal joints,


An old indurated bruise of the finger began immediately to suppurate, became painful and sore (after one hour),

Violent sticking in the left index finger (immediately),

Lower extremities

Sensation of paralysis in the legs, after walking, especially in the knees and metacarpal joints, so that farther walking became very difficult, and even standing was irksome,


Violent cracking, like a report, in the right hip-joint, on stretching out the thigh and moving it outward,


A sensation of weakness of the thigh extending down to the knee, especially while sitting (after half an hour),

Aching in the lower surface of the thigh, after sitting a long time,

Sudden shuddering sensation in the nates while sitting, as from a violent fall upon them,


On stooping down, immediately an audible noise in the knee-joint, with a sensation not entirely painless,

The knees knock under even while standing,

Weariness in the knees, even to sinking down,

A painful tension in the knees on sitting down; on standing it becomes a painful sensation as if the joints were dry from want of synovial fluid, and as if they would crack and creak on moving them,

Intermitting, very painful drawing in the bent knee,

Tearing in the knees, extending down to the malleoli, where it then continues aching and drawing back and forth, so that she is frequently obliged to change the position of the feet at night,


Great weariness of the lower legs in the bones, in which there is a painful tingling sensation, extending from above downward, in the evening; it is felt less during motion; but more, immediately after motion; it is, however, somewhat relieved by rest,

Smarting in the calves, soon followed by tearing in them,


At one time sudden, at another slow, transient, intermitting, dull or very acute pain in a small spot above the malleolus, as if in the periosteum (after eight hours),


Weakness in the feet and calves, as if she had walked too far (worse while walking than while sitting), (after half an hour),
