unless they had a complaint that led to the question....why would you ask these questions in a test setting? If you plan to ask these questions are you also planning on asking other questions irrelevant to the complaint?

Does anyone have a list of questions that should definitely be asked? Like a systematic approach / reminder of relevant questions?

The best thing to do is have an outline and practice for common cases that you should have seen in outpatient clinic

1)Pain complaint to a body region....there are numerous pneumonics for questions on this.

2)Shortness of breath

3)Chest pain or discomfort complaints, also palpitations

4)Dizziness of various etiologies

5)Female health issues...heavy periods, amenorrhea, menopause, etc...also the questions and DDx in female abdominal pain

6)Various DM common complaints

7) Injury to arm, knee, or leg
