Customer Question

On Saturday afternoon I was at an art musuem. By about 2:00 PM my hands, palms and fingers started itching, then it became almost a burn. I couldn't stop scratching...put the in cold water, etc., etc. It finally passed, but by Saturday evening it felt like every joint and muscle in my body hurt. I was almost incapacitated Sunday, and finally by Sunday evening that had passed as well. Today I feel great, but I'm worried about what might have been going on???

Toxic exposures

Hidden infection

Gallbladder problems

And so on.

See your doctor for exam, routine labs.....
