Customer Question
Have a pain in...

Have a pain in my back under my shoulder blade. can move arm around backwards and forwards but it feels like something is just stuck in that spot. no trouble breathing blood pressure is okay. but can't seem to get the pain to go away.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

No recent injuries. sitting up is good. had trouble sleeping but got up and walked around. even a little bit of pain in the left side of my breast. if I breathe a deep breath I can feel it.

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

I am on blood pressure meds. 25 mg losartan. and overweight.

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.

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.
