I've been having a low grade pain in my lower abdomin and at least six to eight bowel movements per day small ones and slight disorientation occasionally and very low energy.

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

It's been going on for about a month?

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

The pain has been about a week or so and no it's not worse just on scale of 1 10A FOUR

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.
