  1. Provide as detailed description of your symptoms, including
  • Exactly when they started,
  • Where in your abdomen is the pain - right side, left side, upper abdomen, etc?
  • Is the pain always there, is it sharp, does it spread anywhere, is there anything that makes the pain worse or better?
  • What happened there after,
  • Any other associated problems like vomiting, any change in bowel habit, blood or mucus in your stool if any,
  • Weight loss if any,
  • How is it affecting your life,
  • What your thoughts are about the symptoms,
  • Your greatest fears or concerns,
  • And hopefully, what exactly you hope we do for you.
  • Your age,
  • Past medical history if any and list of medications you take as well as history of allergy will also help. The more you tell our doctor, the better picture they can create and help to, where possible, come to a list of possibilities.

2. Post non-obscene posts - we get this often and will certainly not respond to such

3. Do not request for prescription for ANY medication, because all we provide here is information services only.
