I have a few additional questions for you:

  1. On a scale of 0 to 10, where would you rate the pain currently?
  2. On that same pain scale, what is the highest rating you would give your pain in the past 12 hours?
  3. Are you having any of the following? Fever, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation or blood in your stool?

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.
