Customer Question
My wife has had...

My wife has had flu symptoms all day and has not kept any liquids down until recently. After going to the toilet, she fainted when she arose. She hit her head and has quite the lump over her left eye. She also banged up her knee. She is lucid and has no problem talking though her neck hurts. Helped her back to bed and she is resting. Does she need to see a doctor or PA?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the neck pain? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?

She has no numbness or tingling; neck and head hurt but she answers questions without any problems. The pain is from the fall less than an hour ago

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

She is quite healthy until the flu hit this morning
