Customer Question
I have a strange...

I have a strange pain high up on my stomach, just below the breasts. I have never before had such a pain. It's pretty strong. Don't know if it could be from some exercise I did a couple of days ago or something else.

Doctor's Assistant: How long has this been bothering you? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?

No vomiting or nausea. Seem to have woken up with this earlier this morning.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Had a mitral valve repair in 2008.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
