Customer Question

I'm 35. I feel healthy. I applied for life insurance in May and had a full screening which came back clean. I struggle with constipation and had a miscarriage 6 weeks ago. I have had a reoccurring discomfort in my lower left ribcage area. Feels like something is pushing out the bottom rib. The skin feels like its tugging. I have no other symptoms, except sometimes, even after a light meal, I feel extremely full and even have trouble breathing.

Are you a male or a female? How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Can you tell me more about your constipation? Can you tell me about your meals? Does anything make your symptom worse or better? When did it start? Is it consistent? Is it getting worse? Any other symptoms? Are you aware of anything which might have triggered it? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any medications including over-the-counter pills and herbs? Any family medical history?
