A 53-year-old man with a past medical history of hypertension and alcohol abuse with prior episodes of alcoholic hepatitis presented to the hospital with generalized weakness. He was in his usual state of health until 4 days prior to admission when he began to develop generalized weakness, nausea, and vomiting. Notably, he had had multiple prior admissions with similar symptoms attributed to hyponatremia. He endorsed drinking a few beers daily but denied any other drug use. Review of systems was otherwise negative.
