Dear customer,

What symptoms are you having? Do you suffer from any medical condition or take any daily medication? Your age and gender? Any investigations done?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My wife had a vertibra fracture at T12, combined with cramps in the lower back and stomacoh. Cramps have been cured with colpermin. Pain in the area of the fracture is non existant. The lower back from T12 to the hips is extremely hot and we are using cold compresses to reduce the heat.

When did she have the fracture? What treatment was given? Does she only feel hot or is the warmth felt by you also?
