      Hello Joshua I’m sorry but because we can’t examine you, we can’t determine what is causing your problems. You need to see a doctor for a proper examination so you can take the right medicine and do the correct exercises.

      Hello Derick I’m afraid that since we can’t examine you, internal injuries kill this really need to be assessed by a doctor. I realise you haven’t had much success trying this so far but there’s not much we can say over the internet.
