Thanks for the question. I would like to have details. any history of heart burns? duration of this symptom? you have used any antibiotic recently? any history of diabetes?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
ive had heartburn in the past but i havnt had it for months.i have not used any antibiotics in a very long time i am 62 and have never been tested for diabetes professionally but in the past i have bought the test strips just to make sure . they always came back negative.
Expert:  Dr. Amir replied 3 years ago.
Thanks for the details. Sorry for the delay, actually I was waiting for your reply and then went offline. Just came here and got your message. I would say that there are few important possibilities which should be investigated and these are acid-peptic disease, neuropathy, neurological manifestations. I will suggest you to take Tab. Prevacid 30mg one tablet daily half an hour before breakfast for three weeks initially. Evaluation by your physician is also recommended. Avoid alcohol, avoid spicy or junk food. Take multivitamins one tablet daily. Best wishes.

Do accept the answer in this way I will be rewarded for my work and time here for you. Positive feedback & bonuses will be appreciated.

Best of luck and keep in touch

Expert:  Dr. Amir replied 3 years ago.
Sorry for the delay. Always here for your help & guidance. Actually I went offline after giving you an answer and then came here again now online and got your message. To be honest with you as you already mentioned that there is problem with the insurance but still x-ray is a must to see that ankle & foot in order to rule out any fracture & bony injuries. You are having consistent pain, numbness due to nerve compression which is most likely due to bony injury. I will suggest you to have an x-ray to rule out that and apply brufen gel there for five days. I will also advise you to take Tab. Aleve for pain relief as this will also help in reducing swelling. Evaluation is a must for you as soon as possible. Best wishes.

Best of luck and keep in touch
