I have found Lloyd's specific eryngium to be a valuable remedy in irritable conditions of the bladder. I first used it personally with a great deal of relief. I have prescribed it in such cases often since, and so far have not been disappointed in its action. In fact I have used it sufficiently often to convince me that it has a specific influence in a certain class of these distressing cases.
COMMENT.—The specific indications for this remedy are irritability either renal, vesical, or urethral, which is accompanied with burning pain, sometimes sharp and cutting. There is frequent desire to urinate; frequent, scanty urination, accompanied with scalding and burning. A sensation of uneasiness in the bladder or pain and severe aching, which extends up to the loins; scanty urine, passed after frequent ineffectual attempts to empty the bladder. It relieves disorders of the bladder and urinary irritability, which are caused by uterine irritation.
