I would count this as 3 elements of HPI (location, duration and context) or 4 if you count 'too much' as severity. But there is no review of systems, so I'd consider it a problem-focused history. Some auditors count NKDA as a ROS point, in which case that would support calling this an expanded history. Either way, if it's to be coded as 99214, that means you'd need a detailed exam and moderate MDM.
