Menopause?

No, just a really stupid 50 year old male.

Chief complaint: "I was sitting in a warm room, and I felt really hot. I put the A/C on, and felt really cold. Then I got hot again."

I s**t you not, people.

I once had a patient (NOT developmentally delayed) hit her call light all night because "I'm shivering, but I'm not cold." Hrm.

Maybe he will be on mystery diagnosis for a weird disease that makes him hot and cold and he will say "I went to the emergency room and they didn't believe me!"
Or he's just a 'tard.

I think the ER triage areas should have a big button on the desk labeled REJECT. And when some dumb-ass like this guy comes in, we can hit it and a spring-loaded platform will fling them merrily into traffic, whereupon they can develop an actual emergency and have a real reason to come back.

My opinions have never been popular, but I like them anyway.
