Excerpt from The Chicago Medical Journal, 1873, Vol. 30: A Monthly Record of Medicine, Surgery and Collateral Sciences This, presents a striking illustration of the conversion of force, and of the truth of the proposition that force is never lost, only converted. Among the reflex effects of neuralgias are various affections of the skin and its appendages, developed in the manner just de scribed. Erysipelas is occasionally observed; changes in the color of the hair are frequent. It is rare to find a neuralgic sub ject whose hair has not become more or less gray, in the vicinity of the affected nerves. These decolorizing changes are some times produced with great rapidity, it being sometimes quite possible to observe a marked increase in the grayness of the hair after a severe attack of neuralgia; It is asserted by some authors, that these changes are sometimes temporary, that the color will return to the bleached hair, upon the cessation of the pain, to be again discharged upon its recurrence. I have not observed this personally, but it is quite plausible. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
