Customer Question
My daughter in law...

My daughter in law has a very pogressive MS abd she has been very unresponsive and completly numb for about 1 hr. She is breathing and her blood pressure is 117/77 and pulse 87. Is this common?

Doctor's Assistant: Is this consistent, or is there some fluctuation in blood pressure?

I have only taken it 1x about 10 min ago

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

I dont think so. She smokes
