Lycopodium patient is another cross one, hateful, cranky, stubborn and averse to the doctor. He is specially irritable on first awaking, and nearly always shows some sort of automatic act somewhere.

It may at first be only a faint but regular motion of thealae nasi, which will soon become more distinct, or some other rhythmic act will appear as the sickness advances. You older men know how often this will be present in certain forms of tubercular meningitis, and how then Lycopodium makes a glorious record and cures the case; but you must not be afraid of repeating even a very high potency every time the improvement slackens.

As most of you know, this symptom also points to either Phosphorus or Lycopodiumin pneumonia. Here the two remedies compete sharply for the preference.
