I ( ·offered constant pain. Phyaiclnns ·aid I had muscular neuralgia, and I took many remedies without relief. At times I was unable to turn In bed. My stomach was so bad that I could scarcely retain food. I took Var-ne-sis and found it of great value for my stomach as well aa for ay rheumatism, as I am now free from rheumatism and can eat anything with no ill effects.
