A young man collapses at his job, and House makes a game of establishing the diagnosis until things turn critical, and Tritter increases the pressure on Wilson.
Did You Know?
[Around 00:24:40] Dr Cameron tosses House a bottle of pills that "takes the edge off" her PMS, as a substitute for his vicodin®. The only acceptable substitute for vicodin, a combination opiate analgesic of hydrocodone, is a non steroidal anti inflammatory drug (NSAID). NSAIDs are usually prescribed for dysmenorrhoea, which Dr Cameron wrongly referred to as her PMS. Dysmenorrhoea is a pain that occurs around the time of menstruation, while PMS is a psychosomatic disorder that begins around the time of ovulation and actually gets better around the time of menstruation. The treatment of PMS is largely dietary restrictions and antidepressant medications. Most people confuse the terminology of PMS with dysmenorrhoea, but Cameron, being a doctor herself, should not have used the incorrect term. See more
