Dr. Nelson is an amazing doctor! #nationaldoctorsday2015 #virtualflower1
Thank you. I did go to the er and they said it's not an infection. It took 3 months for the swelling to go down. It still gets very hot and painful. No one seems to know. I don't know what to do.
Thank you, your answer was very helpful! Always been reluctant to try adhd meds hope this'll be only side fx :)
Your answer made me feel good! Thanks :) Thanks so much... it seems to have eased....
