I've been dealing with a throbbing pain in my left throat…

Customer Question
I've been dealing with...

I've been dealing with a throbbing pain in my left throat that an ENT Dr. diagnosed as Carotidemia. He claimed that the only Dr. that can help is a neurologist. What can I do for the pain while I'm now waiting on an appt. with a neurologist?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? Do you have a fever?

No fever, and really no other symptoms. This has been going on for 6 months at least.

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

It started while getting Keytruda treatments for lung cancer. But the cancer has been gone for months, and the treatments have been halted for more than 2 months while we treat a side effect skin condition of that.

Well, the pain doesn't stop because I asked about it, so yes.

WTF kind of scam is this? I paid my $5 to have my questions answered, and now you tell me I have to pay another $50? This is Bullshit!

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.
