Customer Question
I bumped my head...

I bumped my head sharply on a table on Tuesday. It is now Wednesday and it still hurts. I take pradaxa--is this ok?

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

Since Tuesday--it is now Friday morning. If I put my hand on it seems to help.

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

I have a fib and along with meds for depression and anxiety, I take meds for asthma. I also take metoprolol er succinate

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.
