QUIZ YOURSELF ON VARIOUS HEALTH TOPICS! CLICK HERE!

Signs are what a doctor sees, symptoms are what you experience.

Getting a Patient History



Did you know that 90 - 95% of a doctor's diagnosis will come from what you say? Yep! If you do not give the doctor all of your symptoms and history then you are asking him or her to diagnose you based on insufficient information. Whenever you go to the doctor, he or she will take a patient history using a mneumonic called, "OPPQRST." Every doctor on the planet follows this mneumonic. This translates into: Objective, Palliative, Provocative, Quality, Region or Radiating, Severity and Timing.

  • COMPLAINT: What's wrong?

  • SEX AND AGE: Male/Female - birthdate

  • ONSET: When did it start?

  • PALLIATIVE: What relieves your symptoms?

  • PROVOCATIVE: What provokes your symptoms?

  • QUALITY: How would you describe the symptoms? Sharp? stabbing?, sore? uncomfortable? nausea? achy? throbbing? ripping? tearing?

  • REGION OR RADIATING: Do the symptoms or pain radiate to another area of your body?

  • SEVERITY: On a scale of 1 - 10, how would you rate your pain or discomfort?

  • TIMING: How often do the symptoms occur?

Typically with chest pain, the additional LMN are added to the mneumonic which means: Last, Movement and Notable Symptoms.

  • LAST: When was the last episode?

  • MOVEMENT: What activities could you do before you first felt chest pain and what activities can you do now?

  • NOTABLE SYMPTOMS: What other symptoms do you have with your chest pain?

Health Questions and Health Consults:I do not answer health questions by e-mail as it requires a volleying of several e-mails and there is nothing about that process that I enjoy. E-mail also creates more confusion and misunderstanding over a simple question. Having said that, you must call me at (314.420.5099). I answer basic health questions for free. It's only when your health question requires me to go in-depth with your health history, interpretation of laboratory results and needs a longer conversations, I charge a fee for that service. When you call with a simple health question, you must still be prepared to answer the questions above OPPQRST. I need the OPPQRST information plus your complaint, sex and age in order to answer a health question. For a full-blown health consult, click here!

Here are just a few things that will automatically pop into a doctor's head when you give the following symptoms. The doctor will then perform various orthopedic, laboratory or imaging tests on you to confirm or deny his or her suspicions:

Please keep in mind there are many other conditions, diseases, syndromes and illnesses that your doctor may be thinking depending on what you stated in your patient history.

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms or have concern for your health, please seek medical attention immediately.
