Dr Jones :

Hello.

Dr Jones :

Welcome to just answer.

Dr Jones :

Can you please provide more details about your symptoms?

Dr Jones :

Do you suffer from any medical condition?

Customer:

no i just have been having these symptoms for a few months

Customer:

they go away so i don't bother with them but today was bad

Customer:

im still hurting but it is on a scale of 1-10 about a 3 right now

Dr Jones :

Actually these symptoms are not fitting into any particular cause so we need to discuss this to find whats this related to.

Dr Jones :

Any difficulty or issues related to swallowing?

Dr Jones :

Any feeling of stomach contents getting refluxed into esophagus?

Dr Jones :

Are there symptoms like easy fatigue,tiredness or breathlessness?

Customer:

no but my neck feels like the blood is not going to my veins... like its cut off...oh i have had blood clots in the past if that helps

Dr Jones :

I guess few investigations are needed to evaluate these symptoms.Cause would be clear after that.

Customer:

i can breath good and im not having any stomach acid problems

Dr Jones :

I think clinical evaluation with investigations like chest xray ,ECG and color Doppler of neck vessels can be the first line of investigations which should prove helpful.

Customer:

I"m going to the docs in the morning so I guess if it gets bad i should go to the emergency room?

Customer:

my head isn't feeling to good right now... it feels like a bad headache is coming on...?

Dr Jones :

In case it gets bad go to ER.Though ER visit may prove precautionary but chest pains are not be ignored.

Customer:

so i guess i should go to the hospital? it hurts bad...

Dr Jones :

Yes.

Customer:

thanks so much for your time...

Dr Jones :

You're welcome.

Dr Jones :

If you found my answer helpful please ACCEPT it so that I get credit for my time.

Dr Jones :

Thank you.

Dr Jones :

Regards.
