Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?

Well i notice my appetite decreased slowly I was in the hospital right before Christmas cause they thought I had blood clots on my lungs but I didn't and it did scare me really bad and it went down hill ever since

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.
