While working nights for EMS, we got a call for an allergic reaction/breathing problem. After arriving on location, the patient’s boyfriend meets us outside saying that she is having an allergic reaction and is breathing heavy. He is visibly intoxicated and on the verge of hysteria.
We make contact with the patient and ask her what her allergic reaction is to and she says alcohol. At this point we figure this was a false alarm, but we ask her the symptoms of her allergic reaction. She says she gets dizzy and then sick to her stomach. So she gets drunk, go figure!
