Help The negative findings in the Patient Note

I know this issue of pertinent negatives and positives have been mentioned on this forum, but I still do not understand it and my exam is in 5 days! Some of the pertinent negatives ppl have mentioned here actually exclude the diagnosis so i'm terribly confused right now. I know it can't be that hard so what am I missing?
Can someone kindly explain it to me using an example of what to write?
I'll really appreciate it.

Default Same here

I understand your confusion Nino. I too have just been putting pertinent positives on each of my 3 diagnoses whenever I practuce my PNs. I;m thinking maybe since we put the most likely diagnosis as number 1, I might just put pertinent negatives on that one to support why i placed it at the very top? Will also wait for other people tp respond. Thanks for bringing this up.
