Signs and symptoms associated with delirium tremens are like racing the pros in a
Mercedes CLK DT .

As you step on the gas pedal with your right hallucis (hallucination), the screeching rubber hits the pavement and your helmet glistens in the afternoon sun (fever) your heart pounds faster and faster (tachycardia); your bp increases by 10mmHg at every turn of the road and at every unwieldy obstacle in your way. One quarter of a mile ahead, your clutch malfunctions; you feel as if your head has seized up along with it. (seizure) (Disoriented and agitated), you wished you had put diapers on cause you feel like crapping in your pants (diarrhea) :toosad:. But don't worry; you'll get to enjoy a cool lager after it's all over...:p

Great post! I thought that I would contribute a little bit to this wonderful mnemonic! You could also add that the driver is out to buy a drink (alcohol withdrawal) and that he is riding a mercedes-benz (for benzos which are the therapeutic regimen for DT) :)):)):))
