    Yes they were swollen. 'Twas puffy and edematous. A true emergency

    Hahaha do you ever get to the point where you're trying to fall asleep and you're so exhausted you start coming up with terrifying things that would never cross your mind if you were well rested? I have insomnia and after being up 48-72 hours and laying in bed and not being able to fall asleep, my mind starts to wander and I convince myself I have that condition where you can never sleep again and it kills you. Then I usually fall asleep.

    Have I mentioned in slightly hypochondriacal?

    1. I had a patient who called 911 because she was having numbness on her vagina for 7 years. She was sent to minor care STAT
    2. had another rescue patient that was brought to the ED complaining of a sore throat after swallowing a pill.
