Customer Question
Hello my name is*****...

Hello my name is***** have had sharp stabbing pain under my right breast this morning which lasted about 10mins or so. I am feeling a bit winded still & my right arm feels heavy & achy. I am slowly feeling better??

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

I have been feeling great the last few days but this morning...bad start. Generally good, I am living with daily vertigo. If I am still I feel better but my arm aches. If I move around I feel winded.

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

I have had 7 ear ops, 3 in 12 mths. I take lyrica 150mg, voltaren 50mg, acimax & stemitil am & pm. Also panadol 4 times a day. I had a periocarditis attack about 15+ yrs ago but recovered ok.

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.
