My sister had been wearing abdominal support belt to reduce a hernia.Wears it 8 hours but not at night.Now her muscles ache.The hernia never caused pain and has reduced from weight loss.What can she do?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Just 2 days.Lifting objects,like shopping wagon or laundry bag. Tylenol is helping her right now.Reaching forward or twisting body is uncomfortable.l

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.

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

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

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.
