Come on, tell me - example

A man was always getting headaches and blurred vision - he felt really ill. This kept happening and he would go to the doctor and every time, he would be given pills, but he still got headaches. Even when he was prescribed different tablets, the headaches continued. He got so frustrated that the last time he went to the doctor he said, "Come on, tell me. Help me! My head is really sore. I'm getting really frustrated." At that, the doctor seemed to sit up and take notice and agreed to refer the man to the hospital.
