NO PAIN. NO OTHER PROBLEMS OTHER THAN A CHEST COLD WHICH I HAVE BEEN
USING A TUSSIN BASED PRODUCT TO THIN MUCUS.
DIFFICULTY IN WALKING BECAUSE OF KNEES & PROBABLY SOME DEHYDRATION BECAUSE
I HAVE BEEN AT WORK.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
