Customer Question

Hi I work with computer a lot and type. Couple weeks ago my left thumb and my right point finger started twitching. I am worrying about serious neurological problems and panicking.
JA: The Neurologist will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Neurologist can help you best.
Customer: I have no numbness or weakness.
JA: Is there anything else the Neurologist should be aware of?
Customer: I am accountant and use key board all day long. I work out regularly four times a week. That is all. I am 50 years old female.
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 Neurologist about your situation and then connect you two.
