More Problems, More Scans…
02/09/2009Health & Fitness
I still continue to have problems with my left ankle, despite doctors and physiotherapists not being able to find any muscular-skeletal problems. Because of these problems, an independent consultant has recommended that I have an MRI scan to determine the cause.

I've been taking Singulair (montelukast) tablets the past week to help control my asthma when I exercise and found that I could do a full 2-hour workout without using my reliever inhaler once!
