Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   well your basics tests are normal
User :   so far they are
Doctor :   yes
User :   but im still worried about this feeling cause i never had it before

User :   no 2 months ago
Doctor :   do you have any other medical condition like diabetes ?

Doctor :   well many women do experience the same esp during cold . now what i want you to do is that, you can get a EKG done tomorrow
User :   yes
Doctor :   but i can assure you that its nothing serious
Doctor :   and the main culprit is the cold
User :   can it be a nerve or a muscle
