A 33-year-old male truck driver walked into Fast Track complaining of severe low back pain after "driving a truck with no shocks over really rough roads" for many hours. He was first evaluated by a physician assistant, who became concerned about possible cauda equina syndrome, when the patient described some saddle-area anesthesia. He notified the ED physician on duty, who agreed, though he was a bit skeptical as the patient was still walking but said, "You do read about this, so I’ll see him in the main ED."
