Case Study:

62 year old man

CC: Ringing in the ears, dizziness 

Sx: Hot hands and feet, sweating, night sweats, itchiness after showering, tiredness, bleeds easily with even small cuts

History: This man has occasionally experienced ringing in the ears and brief dizzy spells as long as he can remember, he always attributed it to dehydration. It was never enough of a problem to warrant consultation. The ringing in his ears and a general feeling of overall heat and fullness have increased in the past few years to the point where they are becoming destabilizing and uncomfortable.


  • This man does not have a regular primary care doctor as he has been “healthy as a horse” for his entire life.
