Both have rheumatic pains, especially in all the aponeuroses; worse when at rest; worse at night.
Rhod.-Pains do not admit of the limbs being at rest; desire to move, and moving, relieves.
Rhus.-Rest occasions uneasiness in the painful parts, but, on moving, the pain is worse. Continued motion only relieves.
Rhod. has general aggravation of pains before a change in the weather-particularly before a thunder storm-even in dysentery indicated by this.
Rhus.-Has aggravation from the warmth of the bed, and as a general characteristic; in consequence of stretching, overlifting, overexertion of joints, and, or from getting wet while perspiring.
Rhod.-Acts more on the right side; and, according to Boeninghausen,
Rhus more on the left.
Rhod. has aggravation of pains in the night, but more towards morning;
Rhus, more towards evening and night.
Rhus corresponds to rheumatism in the cold season; Rhod., in the hot season. Rhod. worse before, and Rhus worse after, rain.
