About this work


Note: what I have called reflex salivation induced or not by apples etc and allied troubles, such as hiccough (in my case) with severe feeling of epigastric oppression, stuffiness in the throat etc is evidently in origin like asthma--FPW 1934--Note in regard to this paper. Probably instead of salivation some persons would be troubled with reflex cough ('stomach cough') under similar conditions. Amongst other troubles started reflexly from abdominal irritation are some asthmatic attacks following overloading of the stomach. This book contains likewise some notes and cuttings: - on reflex nausea and vomiting in visceral diseases, also on bloody or abnormally coloured saliva {on coloured saliva see also Gould and Pyle's Anomalies and Curiosities of Medicine p 383. This book contains also some notes and cuttings on Gastric Ptosis and Gastric Atony, but see special book on acute gastric atony etc. The whole subject of 'waterbrash'. The salivary glands in cases of pernicious and other anaemias. re other allergic phenomena such as hayfever. NB amongst other curious reflexes is the wellknown tendency to sneeze in some persons on looking upwards in strong daylight. Then there are the nasal spots irritation of which may set up asthma. Lady W. whenever she rubs a particular spot in her eyelids has to blow her nose (some persons tend to sneeze violently on overeating etc, possibly in connection with some reflex automatic mechanism for relief by 'decongestion' and counter-irritation?)
