Smile LIQORAAA; History of present illness mnemonic


L= Location
I= Intensity
Q= Quality
O= Onset
R= Radiation
A= Associated symptoms

So for example patient has a pain in the stomach, mild, burning, has been there for months and is intermittent, does not radiate, associated with nausea and sometimes vomiting, gets worse after eating, relieved by antacids.
