could hardly help screaming. Many

would just move about from one side
of the bed to the other trying to find
an easy position. On getting up in
the mornings my fingers and hand
would be so swollen and stiff that I
couldn't move them. For a' while I al
most lost the use of my right arm and
couldn't even lift a coffee pot to pour
coffee. I would often dron the dishes
and break them and my fingers were
so numb that I would drop my thim

a tight feeling right in the pit 'of my

in the alimentary organs a certain
