A 42-year-old female presented to the dentist complaining intermittent right upper toothache pain over a week which intensified 1 day ago and seemed to radiate to the back of her neck. At the time of her appointment the dentist refused to treat the patient’s toothache pain with anything other than oral antibiotics because her blood pressure was 210/155. The patient presented to her local ER where she reported that she had been experiencing edema and voiding very little despite her increase in fluid intake. Her labs revealed a non-fasting blood glucose level of 410, proteinuria and an initial, elevated troponin level of 0.3. Her vital signs were blood pressure 225/150, pulse 86, respirations 18, and temperature of 97.7.
