Cause of death?
« on: Thursday 28 December 17 18:09 GMT (UK) »
The writing on this death certificate seems clear enough, but this needs a lot of imagination to become dyspepsia.

 I had 'hoped' it would be a haemorrhage, as William's mother (I think) was a carrier of haemophilia, but it seems not to be.

I read it as dyspenea, which is perhaps dyspnea, i.e. 'shortness of breath'

Thanks; that looks a likely interpretation. I suppose one cause could be an oral haemorrhage/haematoma, but I think the London Hospital may have spotted that!

Agree with Jennifer. I wonder if it might be a symptom of pulmonary embolism.

Isn't it to do with digestion  problems


Dyspepsia can be defined as painful, difficult, or disturbed digestion, which may be accompanied by symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, heartburn, bloating, and stomach discomfort

I agree with dyspnea.    Don't see dyspepsia at all - there's only one p in the word on the certificate.

Dyspnea at age 24 in 1838 sounds like some lung malfunction.  ?TB?  Though you'd think even then, the hospital would have diagnosed that rather than dyspnea which is a symptom not a disease in itself.

But it doesn't say dyspepsia, it says dyspenea (replies #1, 3 and 5)  :)
