Customer Question
I have been experiencing...

I have been experiencing tingling and numbness in my lower lip on the left side. I also have a slight numbness in my thumb and forefinger on my left hand. This just started today. It's not extreme but I am concerned.

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

I have type 2 diabetes and I'm extremely overweight. I have arthritis in my hand and knees. I'm 70 years old and have become more and more inactive. I tire quite easily. I do have an appointment with my cardiologist next week for a yearly appointment. But I haven't been diagnosed with heart disease.

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

I've been having lower back pain today.

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.
