ASSESSMENT: Menorrhagia, pelvic pain, dysmenorrhea, and irregular periods.
PLAN: We will evaluate with a CBC, urinalysis and culture, and TSH. The patient has what she describes as migraine headaches of a new onset. Because of the pelvic pain, dysmenorrhea, and menorrhagia, we will also evaluate with a pelvic sonogram. We will evaluate with a CT scan of the brain with and without contrast. We will try Anaprox DS one every 12 hours for the headache. At this point, she could also use that for menstrual cramping. Prescription written for 20 tablets. If her lab findings, sonographic findings, and CT of the brain are normal, we would consider trying birth control pills to regulate her periods and reduce the cramping and excessive flow. The lab x-ray and urinalysis results will be reported to her as soon as they are available.
