How can I help?
Hi there, it looks like your previous provider has opted out. I'll be happy to discuss your options with you.
Understood. it's important to note that although I can try to address your question thoroughly, if there are immediate medical concerns, or there may be nuance to something such as administration without consent, it is important to consult a doctor/nurse practitioner/physician's assistant, in person. There are aspects of the client's experience, features of the history you're telling me and some things that are left out (even unknowingly), and certainly features of a physical exam of your body that can't translate over this type of online communication. Unfortunately, because of the nature of this type of chat, some of these critically important concerns could be easily missed, and I could unwillingly get the wrong impression from you, or give you information based on incomplete information. More, this is certainly not a place where any diagnosis could be ruled in or out. With complete transparency, the same condition can present completely differently in just about every single person, and different conditions can appear with the same presentations in different people, so there is a lot of room for unknown and confusion. Medicine is an imperfect, and far from complete science, yet. For your purposes, I'm sure you'd much prefer a concrete picture, with concrete data.
