Customer Question

I have been having breathlessness in waves over the last couple of weeks, but today my chest seems somewhat tighter.
JA: The Doctor can help. To begin, how long have you had tightness? Have you used any medication for it?
Customer: It started about 2 weeks ago. I have not had any medication for it.
JA: Thanks for that. Have you seen a doctor about tightness?
Customer: No, I cannot get through to my GP office.
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history the Doctor should know?
Customer: I take Triumeq for HIV.
