Customer Question

My partner is having some intense intermittent pain in his right lower/rib area that just began tonight with no known cause. He is 78 yrs old, and has never experienced this before. He has done nothing to trigger this pain. Please help, thank you.
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: It just began about 3 pm at the end of a nap today. It seems to occur on its own without any trigger...
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: It is triggering itself, nothing external seems to be the trigger.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.
