    Good evening. Sorry about that. But I don't understand. Are you saying that your chest is swollen? Are you having any difficulties breathing now? Which part of your chest is paining you? Are you coughing? If so, are your producing sputum and what colour? Which drugs are you currently taking? Awaiting your response. Thanks

    Good evening. Thank you. As of now, the swelling is gone down but I still fill sharp pains in between my breasts, I'm guessing dat is where ma chest is... I was only told to use ma inhaler every four hours, be sure to rest and take Omephrazol tablets, 200mg. I av done that but I stopped coz I felt it wasn't working as the pain is still there.

    Ok. Now I understand. You may have peptic ulcer. Have you taken any antacids like gascol? Omeprazole is 20mg not 200mg. You should take both together because they have different mechanisms of action. How long have you been having this pain?

    Hello. Asthma usually causes a feeling of chest tightness and difficulty breathing. If it is pain you are feeling, it's likely due to the peptic ulcer. Having both peptic ulcer and asthma at same time can be quite discomforting. I'm very sorry about that. Are you only on the inhaler? We're you prescribed any tablets for the asthma management? Are you seeing a doctor for it. I think you should do so as soon as possible. A physical examination will be conducted to better understand the situation and to prescribe additional medications if necessary

    Good morning. Please I have this very severe pain all over ma back. I helped someone carry a bag and when I lifted up the bag, I dropped it immediately coz I felt a very bad sharp pain at ma back. It was leta confirmed that I tore a muscle at ma back. I didn't go for an x-ray after the pain stopped for a while buh now, the pain is back n worse than before. What do I do please?

    Good morning. Sorry about that. Yes you need to do an x-ray of your spine but you need a doctor to prescribe it for you. So I would advise you see a doctor as soon as possible. If there is no problem with the X ray, then you would need analgesics and physiotherapy. Good luck

    Hello. You can go to any general hospital or a good private hospital close to you. I understand how you feel but you have to wait till the result comes out before you worry. Because of your ulcer, you have to be careful about taking some analgesics in order not to trigger it. Best wishes

    please what drugs do I take if I want to get pregnant? What do I do to get pregnant please?

    Hello. There are no drugs that can effect pregnancy. It all depends on what is causing infertility which can be treated so one can then get pregnant. Having sex around your ovulation period will increase your chances of conception. You can download cycle planner app to help you calculate your ovulation period. Take care

    How do I do it when I do not have an irregular flow of period? How do I calculate my ovulation period? How do I know please? Thank you.

    Good morning. This is why I said to use the cycle planner on the top of the kangpe app to calculate your ovulation day. You just have to input the first day of your menstrual period and the day it ended. It will calculate your likely ovulation day even if you have irregular periods. Basically ovulation occurs 14days to your next menstrual period. Take care
