I have this pain...

I have this pain or tenderness that has been slowly traveling throughout my body for the past couple days. First in was in my throat and chest, then it subsided. Then pain was discovered at my joints at the same time. At the wrists and at my ankles. It gave my feet and hands a pan too. Now the pain has subsided a bit. But, still feel in the joints. However I've noticed that in my left arm, the pain has traveled "up" slightly from my wrist. Is this the sign of traveling blood clots?

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

The symptoms are about the same in terms of pain. No swelling

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

My diet is not super great. I like cheese. Like alot.

I have a few more questions to ask, is that ok?

Sure

Have you have any fevers or rashes?
Do you have any shortness of breath?

Not at the moment. Though Tuesday I had a tight chest and it felt like something was stuck in my throat. But, those symptoms dissipated the next day.

doesn't sound like blood clots. They don't tend to migrate through the body.

Have you seen your doctor about these symptoms yet?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Not yet. Will go to clinic for a more detailed diagnosis

making an appointment would be my recommendation. Your doctor can take a thorough history, do an exam and then decide what tests would be needed to make the proper diagnosis.

Does that make sense?

It does. But I dont have a primary physician or insurance. My blunder.

No problem. I would look to see if there is a community clinic near you, since they usually have lower costs for patients paying out of pocket. You can also sign up for insurance for 2018 starting on Nov 1st. Your state should have a website that details the different options under ACA.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
