Lost sense of proportion in both ocular and mental vision.

Platinum Muriaticum becomes pride and hauteur in the mental sphere; the patient (generally a woman) looks down on everything and everybody.

Platinum Muriaticum is a keynote of Platinum Metallicum Plat.

Another is the occurrence of cramps, cramping pains and spasms, developing into convulsions.

The cramping pains = numbness and tingling in the parts affected.

Pains as if nipped, squeezed in a vice, and these pains increase gradually to an acme and then as gradually decline.

In the rectum this becomes tenesmus; in vagina, vaginismus.

Another general keynote is the alternation of mental and physical symptoms as physical symptoms disappear mental symptoms appear, and vice versâ.

Nash cured a case of insanity of some duration with Platinum Metallicum Plat., being led to the remedy by an alternation of the mental symptoms with a pain the whole length of the spine.

Platinum Muriaticum alternating feature is also seen between one mental state and another Changing moods; sad and gay alternately; laughs and cries by turns.

Jahr cured with Platinum Metallicum Plat. a woman who had an inspiration to kill her child, and Jules Gaudy recorded (Jour. Belge d'H., quoted Amer. H., xxii. 314) the case of a woman who was tormented with an almost irresistible impulse to kill her husband, whom she loved passionately, and with whom she was perfectly happy.

The sight of a knife had an irresistible fascination for her, and she was often obliged to leave the table to free herself from the impulse.

A few months before, she had lost a child a short time after confinement, which had been followed by profuse and desperately persistent haemorrhage.

Recovering from this she became restless, irritable, and her whole existence was ruled by this terrible impulse. Platinum Metallicum Plat. 6x and 30x relieved and finally cured her.

Kent (Med. Adv., xxv. 184) records the case of a middle-aged lady, mother of several grown-up daughters, who complained of a peculiar mental symptom A fear, in the absence of her husband, that he would never return, that he would die, or be run over.

She wept all the time he was away.

Kent discovered that she had been treated for uterine displacement, and was then wearing a pessary.

Platinum Muriaticum was removed. Menstrual flow was copious, black, clotted.

The external genitals were so sensitive that the usual napkin was intolerable. Platinum Metallicum Plat. cured the whole case, including the displacement.

Almost every symptom in this case was a characteristic.

The sensitiveness of the external genitals is often so great as to make coition impossible. Digitalis Purpurea Digital examining of such a patient causes great pain.

The original name of Platinum was "Platinum Metallicum Platina," being a Spanish word meaning "like Argentum Metallicum silver" (Platanus Plata being Spanish for Argentum Metallicum silver). Titanium Metallicum The metal was introduced into Europe from South America in the middle of the eighteenth century. It is always found in association with other metals, chiefly Rhodium Metallicum Rhodium, Osmium Osmium, Iridium, Palladium Palladium. Hahnemann was the first to think of it as a medicine, and his proving in the Chronic Diseases is the basis of our knowledge of its action. One characteristic symptom, either when found alone or in association with other conditions, has led to many cures with Platinum Metallicum Plat.
