Thank you so much nankyno1.. that price is much better than $ 600. At times I think I shouldn’t buy from them either but then I will need something so I order.. need to go to the store myself but some days are hard to do that.
Ps no hurry at all.. have a nice day and thanks again.

Hi Ftanner and thanks for this post. Sorry to hear you not only had a flare-up back in January, but then a recurrence last Sunday, too. Were you admitted on Sunday, or treated and released by the ER? Were you provided with discharge instructions? How are you feeling now? Please let us hear back from you. Leon (site moderator)

I told him that it was on the same page as the heart test notice I got from the hospital. When I cancelled the test the woman told me the same thing that dr. F. had ordered both. To be honest I was…
