XII. Pains about the head and neck, and heaviness
combined with pain, occur both without and with
fever. Sufferers from phrenitis have convulsions, and
eject verdigris-coloured vomit ; some die very quickly.
But in ardent and the other fevers, those with pain in
the neck, heaviness of the temples, dimness of sight,
and painless tension of the hypochondrium, bleed
from the nose ; those with a general heaviness of the
head, cardialgia, and nausea, vomit afterwards bile and
phlegm. Children for the most part in such cases
suffer chiefly from the convulsions. Women have
both these symptoms and pains in the womb. Older
people, and those whose natural heat is failing, have
paralysis or raving or blindness.
