A previously healthy, well-appearing 42-year-old female living in a modern, high-rise apartment in downtown Los Angeles calls 9-1-1 at 5:30 am complaining of worsening of a burning, epigastric pain she had been experiencing for the last three days. She reports associated nausea and non-bloody, non-bilious vomiting, and that she couldn’t manage to get comfortable in bed until she finally decided to call for help at daybreak. During her 9-1-1 call, she reports “pain, like heartburn, that just woke me up again and I had to throw up, … and then I was sweating so much.” Using the Los Angeles Tiered Disp...

While the cause of gastroparesis is often idiopathic, potentially reversible medication-related effects should always be considered. The condition is notoriously difficult to treat.

Rosacea is probably something you’ve seen plenty of times and didn’t know what it was — or perhaps you have it yourself.
