Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
From what you have posted, the duration of his symptoms and the fact that he is getting nothing but worse, I would have to say that it is time for him to see a doctor....and a doctor that is willing to do more then just "mail" him pills.
I'd take him to a 24/7 clinic. If they think that he would be better treated at an emergency room, they will make sure he gets to one.
While my wife would probably agree with the "lock the husband up and see if he lives" approach to medicine I think, as a husband myself, it would be a kinder and gentler thing to haul him to a doctor. ;-)
Is there anything else you would like to discuss at this point or have all your questions been answered to your satisfaction?
I hope this information was helpful for you. But I do work for tips so I want to make sure you are happy with me before rating me. If you have another question on this or a related issue feel free to fire away. And please let me know if the rating system gives you any troubles. Thanks in advance, Dr. Rick
We have been experiencing problems with the chat system for the last few days. Our engineers are working on it. However, I'll switch over to the Q&A system. This system works a lot like 'text messaging' but an email is sent to each of us anytime something is posted to this thread. We can continue to work on your question there..... :)
