Customer Question
Hi my fingernails go...

Hi my fingernails go orange at the top everyday after work (I’m a swimming teacher spend up to 6hrs a day in heated chlorine pool)

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Just the nails, a bit tired and stressed at the moment, but I’ve already spoken to gp about this

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

I suffer from depression, anxiety and OCD medicated sertraline 100mg daily, plus see physcologist. Generally fit and healthy, always have cold feet and hands

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?

Yep my ex husband makes my issues worse lol generally I am a positive person, but my knees do are both ADD, ADHD, ODD, SPD, and my son has behavioural delays and can be rather physical

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.

Susan O.USA

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!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

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.
