Characteristics.-The Iodide of Iron has had an independent proving. It corresponds more particularly to scrofulous affections, glandular enlargements, and tumours. A number of peculiar symptoms were felt in rectum and anus: As if anus were compressed; as if worms were in anus; as if something twisted round about in a circle; as if a cord were drawn connecting navel and anus; as if a screw were boring in anus. Fe. i. has a symptom somewhat like the Ferrum symptom: "as if something rolled into throat and closed it like a valve." With Fe. i. it is, "food seems to push up to throat as if it had not been swallowed." Lancinating or cutting pains are noted in eyes, ears, and root of nose to occiput. Sensation as if lying in a cramped position. P. C. Majumdar (Ind. Hom. Rev., v. 104) has used Fe. i. with success in cases of enlarged liver and spleen when unaccompanied by fever. (When fever is present Fe. ars. is the better remedy.) The leading symptoms are: "Feels as if she had eaten too much, a sort of upward pressure. Stuffed feeling in abdomen as if she could not lean forward; costiveness." These are very common symptoms in cases of enlarged spleen. "Sweet-smelling urine" appears to be a leading symptom of Fe. i. Berridge removed with it this train of symptoms: "Morning catarrh, hot and restless in bed, sweet smell of urine" (H. P., vi. 208). Motion and walking
