Neck pain

Why do the boards point me to go to the hospital if I'm having headaches and severe neck pain? I can't see a doctor until Monday, and it's getting more bothersome, but I was just diagnosed with a kidney infection 2 days ago. My doctor doesn't open until Monday morning at 8 a.m. I'm thinking whatever it is would just go away with a couple more doses of the antibiotic, but I guess I was allergic to it and the doctor took me off the antibiotic. So......essentially nothing until Monday.

Hello.

What "boards" are telling you to go to the hospital? If you have extreme pain or a life-threatening condition then going to a hospital emergency room would be the right thing to do. If you can wait until Monday and get in to see your doctor, then that would be best.

I pray you can get relief soon.

No one can see you or examine you, the only sensible thing is to tell you to go where you can be examined properly, by a qualified, medical professional. A hospital.

Since it is now Monday evening, I hope you are feeling better, or have seen someone and are on the road to recovery.

Take care, Annette
