Customer Question
I am itching all...

I am itching all over my body and getting ready to go to the hospital. There are no signs of rashes or bugs of any kind. It's been about a week. I have been taking amoxicillin in case I have an infection of some kind, but that is not helping.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Haven't seen a doctor yet, but getting ready to go to the emergency room.

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

I am diabetic, high blood pressure, thyroid disease, I take 4 vitamins every day and I take medications for everything listed here. This has not happened before so I don't know what's causing it.

Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Is there a history of high blood pressure in your family?

Saw my doctor last month for my regular visit and everything was fine and yes high blood pressure is in the family.

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.
