Has every ER attending lost their mind? How can you comfortably put your life in the hands of a doctor that asks what you think he should do?!

I've fired my old doctor for the same reason, asking me for advice about my own and even other patients care. Doc... your the one with extensive education and experience. You make the decision!
Why not go with the usual routine: ECG, enzymes, and x-ray initially to rule out any acute coronary episode. If negative, lets check PT INR and D-Dimer for the presence of a thrombo-embolism. If all else fails... send me to CT and light me up like a glow worm.

So here I am radioactive, but happy to be home with my girls. Thank you Lord for another day!
