Customer Question
My husband is 71...

My husband is 71 years old. He just got up to go to work and he was dizzy. He is now throwing up and has cold sweats. His firehead is cold. Any idea about these symptoms?

Doctor's Assistant: Do you have a fever? Do you have any other existing medical conditions?

No fever. Cold sweats. No other medical conditions

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

Heart disease runs in his family, but his doctor checks him regularly. No sign in him.

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.
