As a CP patient the ER should be an absolute last resort, especially if you have signed a pain contract. If you do have to go it would be a good idea to call your pain doctor, or whoever it is that Rx your pain meds and tell them, even if you have to leave a message, that you are going to the ER and why and then call them again when you get home and let them know exactly what happened at the ER, once again even if this is after hours and you have to leave a message. Then it would be adviseable to call the office as soon as possible on their next business day.
Before it comes to that though it really would be a good idea to talk this over with the doctor who Rx's your pain meds and ask them exactly what they want you to do if you find yourself in need to go to the ER due to pain or any other reason.
