Customer Question

I am having pain in left groin area and upper thigh. Pulled muscle or blood clot
JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Doctor can help you best.
Customer: Thigh was slightly hurting sunday. Hurt more on Monday then Tuesday morning I could barely walk . Took two aleve and it helped so I could walk and work . When aleve wears off I feel pain. I think maybe pulled muscle but how could I tell if blood clot
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: Don't know how I could have pulled the muscle. Had just started riding a stationary bike but had not been on the bike for 3 days when the pain started
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer where you can place your fully refundable $5 deposit (plus $27 after the Doctor responds). While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and connect you two.
