Customer Question
I have a history...

I have a history of fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, pain, and have a breakout of sores all over my body with accompaning itching. I'm 77 years old.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

The pain began when I was in my 30s. I'm not having pain now, except for the sores. I'm wondering if it could have a lupus connection.

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

I have collagenous collitis, barrets esophagus, loss of balance due to small veins not receiving enough blood supply.

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.
