Many of the symptoms are aggravated or excited by coffee, wine, smoking, watching and mental exertions, also by windy weather.
Many of the symptoms appear early in the morning (in bed or after rising), also after dinner. In the evening (8 or 9 o’clock) the pains are increased to an intolerable degree. °Nux is particularly suitable, if the symptoms are worst early in the morning, particularly if the patient wake at 3 o’clock in the morning, and then, overwhelmed with ideas, fall again into a heavy sleep full of dreams, from which the patient wakes more weary than he was on lying down.
The pains which come on by keeping one’s own- self confined in a room, are relieved by a walk in the open air, and vice versa. Some of the pains are
relieved by lying down.
