Clinical : Breast, affections of. Exophthalmic goître. Glands, enlarged. Goître.

Characteristics : Provings have been made of this water, many of them on patients suffering from goître. Great weakness and exhausting night-sweats were produced and all the symptoms of cold in the head and chest. Many marked symptoms appeared in the mammary gland. Three different provers experienced them. A number of symptoms occur after sleep and some of them wake the prover in the night. One prover had a sensation as if her stomach would fall out, and as if her breasts would fall off. In many cases the pains are transient and acute, and return after a short interval.
