Ear infectionAcute Case Questionnaire
1. Onset--fever came on suddenly.
2. Etiology--fever came on just before bedtime.
3. Sensation--doesn't show if ears are hurting. But teeth are.
4. Appearance--what does the person, or the part that's bothering the person, look like; anything remarkable? etc.?
6. Modalities--better during the day, gets worse at night, does not want to be touched unless held. Likes to lay down, stimuli--wants tv on/music, wants company.
7. Concomitants (additional symptoms that came with the main complaint)--vomiting, doesn't want to eat/drink,
8. Discharges--diarrhea (was black yesterday), now liquidy green and stinks really bad.
9. Generals--: I'm hot, I'm cold, I'm tired, I'm sad, I'm irritable.

11. What does the person say? Hasn't been talking much.
12. Thirst--when thirsty, doesn't like cold liquids, juice, soy milk, only wants sips, drinks a little bit here and there.
13. Fever? did have one since monday night to last night average 102. Nothing today. Still feels warm though.
14. Sweating? A lot, especially when sleeping. Cold feet.
15. Odors? very bad breath, sweat smells.
16. What is most striking about the condition? This seems to always happen when he is teething. Doctors say there is no link. The first ear infection he had 3wks ago had a lot of mucus and discharge. Could that have went into his ear and caused this?
Anything else you need to know? I don't want to give antibiotics if I don't have to. Especially when the Doctor says it probably will be resistant to it.
