Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.

Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.

The best thing to do is take some tylenol and put ice on the affected areas

From what you have posted it does not seem that your injures are severe enough to need medical attention. That being said, if the pain gets worse or you have more severe symptoms you might want to consider seeing a MD just to be sure.

Does this make sense to you?
