Customer Question
I am 71yrs. And...

I am 71yrs. And For the last 2 days I have had indigestion-a pain in the center of my chest. I am tired and wondered what to do.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you ever dealt with this before? Are you having any shortness of breath?

No!

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

I'm very healthy and active, never had a pain like this

Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 9 months ago

I do have a few more questions to ask:

How long have you had these symptoms?

Did they start all of the sudden or did they come on gradually?

How bad are the symptoms (mild, moderate, severe)?

Is there anything you had done that have improved your symptoms?

Is there anything you have done that worsens your symptoms?

Came on yesterday morning". It was gradual. Pain is moderate. I have never had this before. It is the same as yesterday.
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 9 months ago

do you have a history of heart problems?
have you tried taking any medications for the 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.
