CHAPTER 6

ACTIVITY DECREASED.

Sleep Overpowering

Dullness

ACTIVITY DECREASED.

A) SLEEP OVERPOWERING:-

This section constitutes all patients or constitution which become dull to such an extent that they sleep a lot during acute infections or fevers. The mother complains that the child who wakes up daily at 7 am slept today upto 12 noon, woke-up had something to eat and went back to sleep again. In short, need for sleep becomes great. Sleep overpowers all sense. The patient is difficult to arouse. This should be differentiated clinically from `sleep comatose' or Coma or unconsciousness. Here unlike the coma or unconsciousness the patient is fully alert when awake. His consciousness is not altered.

The redness, suddenness and desire for lemonades with such singing will point towards BELLADONNA. The song sung are usually in loud voice.
Example: A doctor who was treated by a close friend of mine and for whom I was also consulted developed suddenly side-effects of Norflox antibiotic taken for some infection. The side-effect of Norflox was Psychosis. The 60yr old doctor started talking continuously in a loud voice. The 'talk' was so continuous that people hearing it would be tired, but the patient was not. This went on throughout the night, non-stop. When I visited him his face was 'flushed' and on seeing me he started - Prafulbhai, Prafulbhai, Prafulbhai; How are you, How are you, How are you, ? every question or sentence was being talked in a rhythm of three. Without waiting for reply he went on I'm fine, I'm fine, I'm fine. A dose of belladonna 30 administered by my friend Dr. Mehta, cured him completely to the surprise of the hospital authorities who were treating him in vain.

"No complaint" is due to various causes
(a) because of contentment e.g. opium;
(b) because the patient is averse to pity and sympathy from others e.g. Nat. Mur.,
or the patient does not want others being troubled for him nor does he or she wants to miss his duties, work or school e.g. silicea.
