Customer Question
I WAS WORKING WITH...

I WAS WORKING WITH A tax client earlier and she pointe out that I "didn't seem right". I was having difficulty seeing, kept repeating myself and appeared disoriented. I was unable to finish the return and took a nap for a while. I am having difficulty focusing and have a sharp pinpoint headache. My blood pressure is currently 159/90 and my blood sugar is 152. I have eaten some pistachio nuts today. How should I go about having this checked up and is it urgent?

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

Headache is episodic. Slight nausea.

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

I have AFib and diabetes

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

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.
