Customer Question
I am 83 yrs...

I am 83 yrs. old and I broke out in a rash around the neck area that itches and hurts. I stayed at a hotel 3/3. I tried Hydrocortisone that is not helping.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the neck pain? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?

It started last evening. It does feel numb and it does hurt.

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

I have allergies to scents.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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.
