I would go ahead and call your GI's office today...if I call mine after hours/on a weekend, I get an answering service that then calls the GI who is on call (there are three in the practice). The GI then calls me, and I can ask my question. It'll at least help ease your mind so you'll know if you need to head to the ER or not. I hate going to the ER (nothing like waiting for hours in the germiest place on earth!), so avoid them at all costs.
