Alright this was a fun one. A 69 year old woman presented with symptoms of numbness in face, high blood pressure (currently controlled on avapro & noten medications), high cholesterol (6.5 total with 4.6 ldl & 2.3 triglycerides), chronic lethargy, symptoms of ibs (bloating, constipation and belching), chronic sinus congestion, dizziness, palpations, insomnia, restless leg syndrome and chronic calve pain (worse for walking). She was obviously distressed, but honestly had lived this way for so long that she had got used to feeling miserable (a familiar story!).
