My 14 year old...

My 14 year old daughter is complaining of tightness in her chest. Immediately after the pain begins she feels shortness of breath and then hot.

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

It started yesterday. It occurred in the evening. Today it happened again during school. It just goes away on its own.

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

Perfectly healthy kid excepts for allergies. She's been to an allergist who told her to take Claritin and Flonase

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.
