I went to oqthopetic doctor two weks ago because of pain inback, at the time I question if I could have Pleurisy and he didn't said no, but said he thought that pleurisy was a myth Give me a sort that he said would end my pain for awhile..It did not, it lasted for about three hours and I was in pain again. now when I cough the pain feels as if it goes thru chest to back. Hurts like he__.

I am sorry you have such bad pains

you need to improve your diet and go on Nexium or protonix to help decrease stomach acid and heal your ulcer

you should see a pain management doctor about your spine pain. they can give you pain medications for your spine.

is medical marijuana legal in your state?

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.
