Customer Question

I have been having difficulty swollowing

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

I have problems with clogged head (hear on the inside of my head and some earaches. Sometimes my ears will pop when I am just sitting around. I am always yawning in an effort to pop the ear to hear. I'm not sure what to do.

Doctor's Assistant: Are you experiencing any dizziness? Do you have a fever?

No to both questions. I also have frequent tooth ache which occurs all over my mouth. It doesn't last long but really hurts. Dentists can find nothing wrong. I wondered if the two conditions were related.

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

I am seeing a gastrorentologist (spelling) for a frequent choking and difficulty swallowing problem.

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.
