the head backwards ; worse in the open air, and better by holding the head still
; face flushed.

Glon. is suited to "Troubles of the head in type-setters, and in men who work

on assuming an upright posture, from rising up in bed, rising from a seat.
Heat in the head; throbbing headache." The great sensitiveness to the least jar,
which is a very marked feature of the Glon. headache, causes the patient to
carry his head very carefully in order to avoid the chance of it.
The headache is in the whole head and every part─forehead, vertex, occiput.
The Glonoine patient is also worse from wine and from stimulants, and from
mental application. When the headache is on he cannot think, and he cannot
write. An additional hindrance to writing is that he trembles so that he cannot
write. Trembling and throbbing of the fingers so that he is unable to do his
work or perform any delicate work with the fingers or hands.
