Bug Agaric; Fly Agaric

Characteristics – This fungus contains several toxic compounds, the best known of which is Muscarin. The symptoms of poisoning do not develop at once, usually 12 to 14 hours elapse before the initial attack. There is no antidote, treatment entirely symptomatic [Schneider]. Agar. acts as an intoxicant to the brain, producing more vertigo and delirium than alcohol, followed by profound sopor with lowered reflexes.
Jerking, twitching, trembling and itching are strong indications. Incipient phthisis; is related to the tubercular diathesis, anaemia, chorea, twitching ceases during sleep. Various forms of neuralgia and spasmodic affections, and neurotic skin troubles are pictured in the symptomatology of this remedy. It corresponds to various forms of cerebral excitement rather than congestion. Thus, in delirium of fevers, alcoholism, etc. General paralysis. Sensation as if pierced by needles of ice; 2* or hot needles. Sensitive to pressure and cold air. Violent bearing-down pains. Symptoms appear diagonally as r. arm and l. leg. Pains are accompanied by sensation of cold, numbness and tingling. 2* IRREGULAR, UNCERTAIN and EXAGGERATED MOTIONS; patient reaches too far, staggers or steps too high, drops things, etc. Symptoms appear slowly. Patient suffers from MANY AND DIVERSE symptoms [3* Tub.]. EYELIDS and tongue are particularly affected. Shuddering. Nervousness and restlessness. Chorea > during sleep. Sensation of a cold drop or cold weight on parts. Painful twitching, then parts become stiff and cold. In epilepsy and convulsions, physical strength is increased, can lift heavy loads.

Has been found chiefly useful in the treatment of chorea, neuralgia and epileptiform spasms, due to spinal irritation or anaemia. It is esp. useful in muscular twitching of a choreic nature, but where chorea has not fully developed. Of very little use in true epilepsy. 10* Generally < before a thunderstorm.

Mind – The provings bring out four phases of cerebral excitement:
1. Slight stimulation, shown by increased cheerfulness, courage, loquacity, exalted fancy.
2. More decided intoxication: great mental excitement and incoherent talking, immoderate gaiety alternates with melancholy. Perception of relative size of objects is lost, takes long steps and jumps over small objects as if they were trunks of trees – a small hole appears as a frightful chasm, a spoonful of water an immense lake. Physical strength is increased, can lift heavy loads. With it much twitching.
3. Third stage produces a condition of furious or raging delirium, screaming, raving, wants to injure himself, etc.
4. Fourth stage: mental depression, languor, indifference, disinclination to work, confusion, etc. We do not get the active cerebral congestion of Bell., but a general nervous excitement such as is found in delirium tremens, delirium of fevers, etc.
