Default kinda freaking out!

I am really worried abt the pt note part where we have to support our every differential with a history and a physical finding.
I am sure I am going to mess this up... wat if we don't find anything in the history to support our diff... wat then.. can we just write..only one differential. any one please advise on how to study for this part..
thank you

according to CS bulletin 2014 it's better to list less ddx than to list 3 but poorly supported dx. but at least come up with 2 ddx, unless the case is a very specific one eg shingles.

Read the CS bulletin to know more about exam and avoiding unnecessary mistakes..
