Customer Question
Hello, I've been experiencing...

Hello, I've been experiencing occasional dull pain on the lower outside part of my right lung. The pain flares a couple times a day but I have not experienced shortness of breath, fatigue, weight loss, or inability to carry out daily tasks.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

A couple weeks, and nothing really because it comes and goes quickly. I have tried taking deep breathes and there is no pain when I do

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

Nothing related to, or that would correlate to the occasional pain

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.
