Information from Patient Interview
Whilst at Mr Kirby’s home the following information is obtained:
• Rash was on inside of thighs and arms and it is now resolving with Eumovate cream and fexofenadine 180mg (Telfast) which he purchased OTC. The rash has only occurred the once, it was itchy and bit lumpy. (It started in hot weather and Mr Kirby did not change any detergents or soaps).
• Sweating is of concern and at the time of the visit the hair around temple was damp. • He is feeling optimistic and would like to travel overseas in about 8 months’ time and is keen to reduce his alcohol intake (he feels the duloxetine has been helpful).
• Goes to sleep well but wakes about 4 hours later to toilet then tosses and turns (has been taking melatonin for at least a year).
• Takes curcumin 600mg twice daily for pain but has not advised Dr Mingle of this.
• Has been seeing physiotherapist and finding exercises are helping pain.
• He has a Nitrolingual spray which he has not needed to use. It expires next month.
• He has had two doses of denosumab and the last dose was about the time of the rash, but he is uncertain whether it was before or after the rash developed.
• Has Endone 5mg at home but has not taken any for a long time.
• He usually remembers to take morning medicines but sometimes forgets night medicines.
• He tells you the doctor says his blood pressure is “good”, but he is unsure of the numbers.
• He said he eats cheese and has milk on cereal for breakfast. He has never been told he is vitamin D deficient.
