I have a terrible burning pain in my left index finger. I don't know what I did to cause it.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the burning? Are you experiencing any other discomfort?

No other discomfort. These symptoms have been about 3 days. Hurts so bad I couldn't sleep. i can tolerate pain good, but this hurts

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

I see a dr. regularly. Have blood tests every 6 months. I have had trouble with my back. Had an epidural in Jan and Feb, but better now

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.
