Customer Question

I'm 50 yrs old and recently been prescribed hormones. I've been post menopausal for about a year now and last night it's like I'm having a period again. I haven't had a period in 2 years now.
JA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?
Customer: Like I said I haven't had a period in 2 yrs until last night and continuing today.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I texted my nurse prac this morning, I have had lower back pain as well, but I've also had bulging discs so I thought that was where that pain was coming from
