Jasmin Sakay Case Study Presentation

HPI: Jasmin Sakay is a 46-year-old Filipino woman with several complaints. She has migraine headaches (HA) every month before her menstrual period for the last several months. She rates the unilateral temporal pain as 8 out of 10, and this is associated with nausea and occasional vomiting. Additionally, she prefers to be in a dark, quiet room when the pain starts. Sometimes she cannot take migraine medication, as she awakens with a migraine and is already nauseated. Jasmin denies aura, paresthesias, visual changes, sinus symptoms, or dizziness

She tells you that her right hip is bothering her. She was hit by a car in her teens and has arthritis in that hip. Also, she rates the pain as 7 out of 10 prior to taking ibuprofen and 5 out of 10 an hour after taking it. Partial pain relief lasts only about 2 hours. She denies other joint pain, morning stiffness, and fever.

She notices that her hip feels stiff after sitting for a while, but it loosens up after taking a few steps.
Also, she reports burning in her stomach that seems to be worse after she takes Excedrin® or ibuprofen, which is somewhat relieving by food and worsenening by caffeine. The stomach pain occasionally awakens her at night. She denies dark stools, alcohol intake, and nausea and vomiting not associated with HA.

Her final complaint is that her menstrual periods have become heavy and somewhat irregular the past 6 months. She bleeds for 10 days with clotting the first day. Tampons last 1 to 2 hours on the first day. Her cycles range from 25 to 40 days. She denies dysmenorrhea, abdominal pain, orthostasis, vasomotor symptoms, or a new sexual partner.
