Whole body, neck, trunk, and extremities perfectly stiff, all the voluntary muscles being in that state of violent contraction called by Cullen "spastic rigidity," and by some others "tonic spasm," and the whole body at the same time jerking.
her eyes glaring and still.
jaws set. hands clenched.
breathing struggling. choking and strangling.
countenance bloated and livid, and her pulse as low as 60 per minute, very wide, and soft.
soon her breathing became more free, uniform, and active, and at each expiration puffed out blubbers from her mouth, and at each inspiration hauled them in.
coincident with the improvement in her breathing the jerking abated, and the spasm of the muscles gave way, till her arms fell limpsy by her side.
the whole system then became relaxed, and the breathing quite easy and quiet, yet the eye remained glaring and fixed, the pulse slow, wide, and soft, yet the stupor so profound that no sign of consciousness could be elicited.
this paroxysm was soon followed by another, which began by jerking of the eyes, followed by jerking of the head, contraction of the muscles of one side of the face and neck, then those of the other side, those of the back of the neck, those of the arms, trunk, and lower limbs, in rapid succession.
when the muscles of the arms and of the body generally contracted, the arms were reached out imploringly, which with the accompanying groan, if groan that noise could be called, anxious and strained eye, and distorted countenance, was the natural language to the bystanders of the extremest terror and amazement, although the patient was entirely unconscious.
then followed violent jerking of the whole body, the breathing being nearly suppressed.
after a little time the jerking gradually abated, and the breathing became more free, and the symptoms given of the latter part of former paroxysm succeeded and in the same order.

so heart-sickening, and indeed frightful, was her appearance that but few of the bystanders could bear the sight.
some fainted, and others covered their faces with their handkerchiefs and turned away.
so imperfectly did the spasm pass off between the paroxysms that the patient was in constant motion.
two or three men tried to hold her still, but they could not do it so as to prevent the medicine being spilt.
