Physical Examination and Workup

The patient's family history is significant for rheumatoid arthritis in her mother, and her father recently received a diagnosis of ulcerative colitis.

The results of the patient's physical examination are completely normal. Her mental status examination and neurologic examination results are also normal. Her responses to screening questions for depression are negative.

The results of a complete blood cell count, electrolyte tests, and a cholesterol panel are all within the reference range.
