Hello

This needs exam for diagnosis.

It sounds muscular.

However, a lung problem must be ruled out [clot to the lung] by exam and testing.

You also need an EKG.

See a doctor now.

OK, so that is an initial answer….

Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.

WAIT A SEC I was under the impression it was 5 dollars for an opinion over the computer and the additional 30 for further review. Why would I pay more than it costs me to go to the doctor? If you charge me the 30 dollars I will not be able to afford to go see a dr. Your site said it would be 5$ and for additional consult then I would have to pay for additional info. You did not give me any info that I had not spoken with a dr over the phone with. Can you please allow me to pass this one time? This seems like a great service but to be charged more than a Dr. Visit for info that is of no help is crazy. I would never agree to that.
I would greatly appreciate it if you can understand this. I understand your running a business and it is a business i will use for sure in the future but to charge me for info that Ive obtained from 3 Drs this morning ( I need to go get checked) Is crazy

Hi

Experts have nothing to do with what you set up with Just answer.

We log into the site and give answers.

If you give ma a positive rating, I am paid per rating by just answer. I have nothing to do with the money you have with them or anything else.

Customer service can help you with that.

Please see that I am paid for my time and expertise with a positive rating on the rating scale above.

contact CS for any problems.

However, I will point out that you can ask a few more questions here if you decide to continue.

I want my account cancelled IMMEDIATELY and I will give you a rating for your time RIGHT after you get me a phone number to contact your billing department. THIS IS A JOKE

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.
