Of Giddinesse. Chap. 8.
OUR Lord hath medled spirit of gid∣dinesse. Esaye. 19. The Lorde hath mingled among them the spirit of er∣rours: and they caused Aepypt to erre in euery worke thereof, a• a dronken man staggereth in his vomit, in stead of the spirit of wisdome the Lord hath made them giddy, with the spirite of errour. Constantine saith, that giddines is false dome and corruption of the sight and of the spirite of feeling: For by that dome it seemeth sodeinlye that all thing goeth about and is darke. The cause thereof is too much plentie of hu∣mours with ventositie meddeled. For those humours moue in the head, with ventositie that commeth vp from ye bo∣die, and from the stomacke to the brain. If this euill be onely in the braine, the patient féeleth heauinesse in the head, noyse in the hearing, and corruption in the smell: and such a giddinesse passeth not easilye. And if it commeth of the stomacke, the patient •éeleth abhomina∣tion, and wambling, & ach in the mouth of the stomacke: but such giddinesse com∣meth and goeth. For when the fumosity commeth vp, thē the giddince beginneth: & when it commeth not vp then it cea∣seth. The remedie héereof is, if other things letteth not, the patients foot shal be set in hot water. And he shall be let bloud, and vse medicines purgatiue, and forbeare wine, for wine dissolueth: & he shall forbeare swelling meats & great. And spewing shall bee excited,* for that is still good.
