I had reached the same conclusion - the answer was very basic and general moreover I was referred to my GP. This doesn't save time of anxiety - could and probably should have done that in the first place.

The system says that you have opted out the other expert and requested a new expert, but I do not see any follow-up question.

Please let me know if there is any further information that you are seeking.
