Hello and welcome.
You are in a wonderful place, with very caring people. None of us are Dr's, but we have almost every chronic pain condition out there and try to help others like ourselves.
Let me first start by saying that weekends are the slowest and responses are much fewer on the weekends.
On the subject of seeing the Dr....I don't think you have a real choice...and the sooner the better. If there is a low cost/no cost clinic near you then pleae try that first. Second is the immediate/managed care clinic. Then there is also the ER. I would use the ER last, unless you felt your condition was beginning to be life threatening.
Most dr's will even give samples of medications if you just ask and this can offset the cost of the visit.
I wish you all my best!
