Customer Question

I woke up feeling off balance and light headed. I can't say that I'm dizzy though. yesterday was a traumatic day with both my daughter in law and father in the hospital with serious issues. I spent 17 hours at the hospital yesterday and I'm wondering if this contributed to it. My neck feels tight. I was prescribed Xanax for anxiety and I'm wondering if taking one will help?
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?
Customer: Just woke up this morning with it.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
