20 y/o male in the ED brought in by his parents because he was nauseated, vomiting, tachycardic, sweating and gnawing abdominal pain. Parents are convinced that he has appendicitis. They said that he got sick right after they pulled him out of college last week because of his bad grades. I asked Mom and Dad to step out while I examined him. Yep, its been a week since he had his last fix of Oxys. Good ole dope flu. We checked an US of the belly to be safe. Gave him the numbers of AA. HIPPA says we cant tell his folks.
