That is a bind you are in...sorry:(
Not sure what you were prescribed before...but maybe you can ask them for a muscle relaxer like Robaxin, Skelaxin, or Flexeril...or even something like Tramadol which could at least hold you over until your appt. with the Dr. (maybe even your old Dr. would feel ok doing that if they won't so check with him as well)
This way they know that you are willing to accept any type of pain relief and not just asking for a narcotic since you don't have a long established relationship with them yet...
Just throwing some ideas out there...
Sending a big hug your way (( ))
