Keep calm and enjoy your 3 months of agony. Btw there are always relevant physical signs ( negative signs support many diagnoses)

For more than half my encounters, I didn't have any relevant physical exam info to put for DDx... just info from Hx. I took an extensive ROS for a few stations... all negative. Is this the norm?
Yeah I didn't write so many physical exam supporting findings either. Didn't write any negative findings to support the diagnosis. Still haven't gotten my score yet so we'll see how it works.

I honestly didn't write many supporting negatives or positives in my DDx for PE or history... I passed. Don't worry too much. I know that's easier said than done.
