Dr. George in a thread of tweets wrote;

At the hospital some days ago & a boy walks in with his mum.I look at the case note & I see BP 189/94.I face the mum with the assumption that she must be the one who needs attention.

Me: Ma’am, what brings you to the hospital?

Mum: It’s my son that needs attention

Me: Whaaaaaatttt?!

I look at the file again. Boy is just leaving his teens, BP 189/94!Exploding head

A recheck read similar stuff.

Mum:He has been having palpitations for over a month.

The next question I ask, HAS HE BEEN CONSUMING ENERGY DRINKS?

Mum: Yeaaaa!Daddy buys it alot in the house so he takes alot

Funnily enough, this is the 5th person I have seen with this issue over the last 9 months.
