Patient discussion about counter

Q. question about frobmyagia what meds can i take over the counter i can take for the pain sometimes its hard to tell the chest pain from the fromyagia pain. i hurt so bad.

A. Except for drugs, other things you can try include aerobic exercise as well as strength exercise, salt bath or biofeedback, although these have less evidence for their effectiveness. Of course, before you start any exercise program, consult your doctor first so you could make it right.
