19 Mr. Donald Dorn is a 45 year old accountant who has come to see you on Tuesday morning in your family practice for new onset low back pain. He was cycling over the weekend and began to feel some mild stiffness when he completed his 1 hour ride. The following morning, he awoke and had difficulty getting out of bed with morning stiffness lasting 30 minutes located in his right and left low back area. He describes his pain as intermittent but frequent episodes of moderate intensity aching with sharp shooting back pain more pronounced on his left side with occasional radiation to his buttock and upper posterior thigh.
20 Donald Dorn His symptoms are exacerbated with sitting longer than 15 minutes and somewhat eased when he walks up and down his hallway. He has called in sick to work today as he feels that his symptoms are worsening overall. This has occurred twice before in the last year and he has used over the counter medications for relief.
21 What other Questions would you like to ask Donald ?
22 Patient Questionnaire Are any of your joint swollen ? No How would you rate the intensity of your pain ? 6-9/10 Do your symptoms interfere with your general daily activity, mood or relationships ? Yes, not working, feeling irritable What is currently giving you relief ? Medications not working, tried ice for 10 min/heat 10 Are you getting treatment for any other health problems ? No
25 Mr. Dorn becomes inpatient with your line of questioning and says, he told you that he was otherwise healthy and beside you know his history, he asks you, "are you going to give me anything for the pain? ". He tells you that he has an insurance plan and needs a prescription for massage also. He is very concerned that his "workaholic boss" will not tolerate any more sick time from him since he has already taken 5 days this year for a previous episode of back pain and a flu bug. He had been looking at a self employed job opportunity before this happened but is afraid to let his health benefits go.
