Customer Question
I have a ruptured...

I have a ruptured hiatle hernia, it ruptured 6 years ago due to an auto accident. I went without treatment for a year due to doctors not wanting to be involved in a law suite from the accident. because of complications, it has been very hard to find a doctor to treat me, why I am searching the internet. lately it feels like I am having severe twisting and pulling between the chest cavity and where the diaphragm would be, the accident caused the diaphragm to rupture also

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the issue? In general, how has your health been lately?

I have been on oxygen for five years, my energy level is low but I also have other complications such as lymes and lone star tic disease, which has caused problems with my heart, I take cardiverol for that

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

I am allergic to all mammal products and byproducts due to the lone star tic disease, I also have arthritis of my right hand, high blood pressure and diabeties

can you recommend a medical doctor who will take my case? I need medications. I found out my last Dr. dropped me when I went on line to send her an email and it said " PATIENT DISCHARGED", no phone call, no letter. I can no longer get into my cart via internet.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I know this is a lot to take in, believe me, I live it. I just need help with this whole situation, I am not involved in any type of litigation.

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.
