Of fleame. chap. 42.
SOmetime fleame rotteth in the veines & pipes, and bréedeth a Fea∣uers Cotidiane continuall. The signes & tokens thereof is continuall heat, and most by night, without warning of com∣ming, heauinesse of head, and wearish∣nesse of mouth. Urine with light cou∣lour, it is thicke, and hath eighteene houres in most trauaile; and sixe in false rest. And somtime Melancholy rotteth in the veynes and pipes, and bréedeth a Quartane continuall. The tokens thereof is continuall heate, but most al∣way from the first day to the fourth day, and commeth without warning, with shiuering or grilling, heauinesse of head, soft heate, not •ull strong And the diffe∣rence of this last Feauer is not lightly knowne by vrine. Also sometime fleme rotteth without, and Cholera within, & then commeth a Feauer that is called the lesse Enutritheus. The signes there∣of be the same that be of a continuall Cotidiane, and then with the same signs late commeth colde, but namely the vt∣ter parts wexe colde, the head is heauy, and the eie lids be •uer set with false sléepe. And this Feauer hath eightéene houres in most trauaile, and sixe in the meane, but that meane in the Cotidi∣an continuall. Sometime fleame rotteth within, and Cholera without, and brée∣deth a Feauer, which is called the mid∣dle Enutritheus. The tokens thereof are continuall heate, but it is strongest from the third day to the third, and commeth with grilling and with shiuering, with head ach, and with thirst, and hath.36. houres in most trauaile, and.12. in false rest. The vrine is red, and some deale wan, & meanely thicke and thin Some∣time Melancholia rotteth without, and Cholera within, and bréedeth the greate Enutritheus, that hath more heate• and all accidents worse then the first. Som∣time the vrine is greene somtime black, sometime wan & discouloured: And all these be tokēs of death: & hath 40. hours in ye most trauel, &.12. in ye lesse trauell. An vntunning Phisition maye vnneth know & •éeme the kinde, & the diuersity of these double Feuers: For as Hippo∣crates saith in Aphor. There be not al∣way certeine tokens of euills that bée sharp, nor of health, nor of death, as Ga∣len saith: for in such euills sometime a perfect Phisition erreth for swiftnesse of moouing of the matter and the euill, and also for default or vertue of the pati∣ent, the which the Phisition knoweth not. And therfore to speake of these fea∣uers, we shall make an ende. And that which we haue spoken of before is kno∣wen by the d•ctrine of Isaac, Constan∣tine, Auicen, Alexander, & also Galen. And it is not vnknowen, that the lesie Enutritheus is cured with difficultie, and the middle vnneth, but some∣time it is curable, and the greate neuer: but by Gods owne hande, as Galen sayth.
