Side effects

Side-effects of exams:

  1. Gastro-intestinal disturbances
  2. Nausea and vomiting
  3. Tremor
  4. Sleep disturbances
  5. Tachycardia (Increased heart rate)
  6. Restlessness

Other side effects may be experienced by other individuals.

These may be alleviated by open spaces and fresh air.

SERIOUS side effects of exams (for my case):
1.more acne
2.bloated stomach/ flatulence
6.shortness of breath


Think only be alleviated by ending the exams...

ok ok.. let me do some differential diagnosis to see what correspond to all this sysmptoms.... tremor = parkinson, hmm on 2nd thought, i think overall it pointed towards anxiety. i will prescribe citalopram 10mg od. hhahahha

puisan: i told u it's side effects of exam lo.. u still diagnose for wat? :p

Yan Leng said...

cassie said...

em, funny enough that i dont have the above diagnosis during exam. but i'm feeling extremely restless and disturbed during project and assignment season, so YES projects and assignments can be another cause. =D
