A 44 year-old female with a past medical history significant only for iron deficiency anemia and syncope presented to an outside hospital with abdominal pain. The patient initially noted the pain while shopping; she described it a sharp sensation, regionalized to the right-epigastric region. When the pain recurred with greater intensity an hour later now with resulting nausea and right-arm radiation, she proceeded to her nearest ED.
