Customer Question
Last week I had...

Last week I had a mild stomach virus, achy legs, headache. I felt awful for over 2 days and then felt so much better. I stayed in bed and slept for many hours. This past weekend I almost felt totally better. Today, Monday, I'm feeling some aches are back and like it is starting over again. Is this typical of a viral bug.. By the way, I went to a doctor last week. She said I had a virus and rest. No fever, blood pressure normal, etc.

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

The headache is very slight. Advil helps alot. Last night I was very hungry, today, not so much.

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

Nothing else other than very nervous about disease in general. I have always been this way. I'm 72 years old.

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.
