He walked into the room with the Spanish interpreter (because we don't make out immigrants learn our language) and politely asked her what brought her in. In typical Hispanic Hystericus, she immediately started pointing to her head, chest, and made the infamous "my finger are numb signal." Within ten seconds I knew that she had anxiety and needed an outpatient psych consult....but my intern pressed on.
After asking her multiple questions regarding things that make her symptoms better or worse, he sat down and held her hand! He then said, "I'm here to help you, please tell me what's really bothering you?" So she let it all out. She said "Well, two weeks ago I was working at the hotel and a lesbian rubbed my temples! Since then that's all I keep thinking about! It consumes my thinking and is causing great distress in my marriage. I can barely sleep!"
I could barely contain myself. Now every time I see a Hispanic Hystericus, I can't help but think that "LTR" or lesbian temple rubbing, might be the root cause!"
