    Hi everyone!! The chain of lymph nodes on the right side of my neck was swollen for 2 years. From my personal experience, I discovered that it was my body’s way of communicating to me that something was out of balance. I tried all sorts of remedies and tests I was HSV 2 positive, and visited various doctors for cure with no improvement. It wasn’t until I started research online, I came across Someone who testify about DR DOHGO HERBAL MEDICINE for curing genital warts, I visited DOHGO page and I was convinced on what I saw on his page that he could help me, finally i email this HERBAL doctor, I ordered his herbal medicine after two weeks of usage I the lymph nodes vanished…. I want everyone good health recovering. Reach herbalist doc dohgo via email (doctordohgo @ gmail. com) or Whatsapp (+2347062142293)
    Contact Doctor dohgo for the following:
    HPV
    HSV
    MND
    Diabetes
    Cancer
    Sclerosis
    ALS

    If you call within 10 mins of symptoms, how long does it take to get 911 to get you to the hospital, get through the basic tests, get an MRI, and then get a clot breaker into your system? How much damage is done just in the first 30 mins, and then 60 mins? Can paramedic give a clot breaker when they arrive on scene? Also, while waiting for paramedics, is it better for patient to lie down or sit up? and what percentage of 60 year old patients get by with little damage if they get to hospital in 30-45 mins? what percentage of 85 year olds?
