Customer Question
Hello - I just turned...
Hello - I just turned 70 recently. Have always been looked at as younger than I am. For the last couple of days I have had stiffness in my legs. It's as though they have cement in them. I am very sore. Additionally the right side of my neck has become stiff as well. And I am tired - very tired. I am at the shore - not my normal place of residence. I have not eaten anything unusual. The only other thing that I have noticed is that my urine output is far less than normal. Any thoughts?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
THis can be due to the dehydration commonly.
Kidney infection or bladder infection can cause this as well.
Kidney failure isa serious possibility as well.
To counter dehydration, Gatorade should be consumed in adequate quantities.
And you should go to the local hospital for further evaluation as well.
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

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.
