I'm currently laying down and there is intense pain

Customer Question
I'm currently laying down...

I'm currently laying down and there is intense pain radiating from my right knee to my ankle

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

My knee and ankle are swollen, and bending my leg at the knee and hovering it in the air helps relieve some pain, mostly in my ankle though

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

I had a really bad sprain/tear to this ankle about 7 or 8 years ago

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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!!
