Customer Question

My name is Khalifa
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: As I was playing soccer yesterday, I felt pinched pain right around my ribs cage on my left side, it has been painful especially when I take deep breaths or try to make certain movement
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Health Professionals generally expect a deposit of about $32 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
