Would anyone count lethargy in the physical exam? Possibly under psych or neurological? I have reviewed the 97 guidelines for both Neuro and Pysch specialty exams and it's not referenced on either. I'm leaning towards not counting it or maybe counting it only as constitutional as it speaks to the overall well being of the patient.

I'd appreciate any feedback and/or opinions on the topic. Thanks!
