Ache. n.s. [ac, Sax. ἄχος, Gr. now generally written ake, and in the plural akes, of one syllable; the primitive manner being preserved chiefly in poetry, for the sake of the measure.] A continued pain. See Ake.
I'll rack thee with old cramps;
Fill all thy bones with aches, make thee roar,
That beasts shall tremble at thy din. Shakespeare's Tempest.
A coming show'r your shooting corns presage,
Old aches throb, your hollow tooth will urge. Swift's Misc.
