Customer Question
I have been light...

I have been light headed and fatigued for over two years. I have worked with my doctor and had many different tests to no avail. I would like to be evaluated at mayo. How do I go about with a referral. My doctor would be willing to assist. Thank you.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that makes your head feel worse or better?

I feel worse when tired though the symptoms are with me all the time except when lying down and sleeping

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

I have leaky heart valves though not bad enough apparently for surgery. My only meds are lisinopril and ibupropen

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.

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.
