    I agree with Michelle.  For all illnesses, the earlier you find them the better the chanc of healing, especially with the rise of drug-resistant bacteria. IF there is anything wrong, find it.  A single appointment is not a waste of a doctor's time.  That is what they are there for.  (I hope you do not smoke.)

    Hi our son had a really bad cough and the hospital could not find out the cause they put it down to asthma because i suffer with asthma they gave him different inhalers over 2 years but it made it worse so a friend of mine said why dont you take him to see a omega therapist no medication just healing after 3 sessions we found jack wasnt coughing as much and after a few months the cough had gone completely (not joking) and the cough never came back, we sat with jack the whole time of his treatment and the lady was just putting her hands on his chest when we asked jack what was happening he said it was like a warm feeling going through his chest, ok we had to pay £20 a session for one hour but it was well worth it, my son played football and coughed the whole time then after his treatment he never coughed at all and our friends could not believe how he had improved, when you think jack was under the hospital near on 3 years and nothing, worth a try.  max
