Can I wait until Monday?

I have had a low grade fever for the past 8 days... It's the only thing that I've had, just achey, tired, coooold, and weak. I have had an appetite, after I take ibuprofen it goes down, I feel a little better and then it's back.
My insurance goes into affect on Monday so I wondered if it would be ok to wait until then to call the Dr. She can usually get me in the same day, my sister said I need to go now and they can wait to send it off for billing... I don't feel right about that, what do you think? I hope this wasn't a terribly stupid question.....

  • If all you have is the low grade fever and the aches and chills, you can keep treating usually with tylenol and motrin opposite each other, and wait for Mondasy, if symptoms get worse go to dr. immediately

  • Sounds like nothing a Dr. can give you anything for anyway. Stop taking the ibuprofin and let the fever do what it's supposed to...kill the inffection you are fighting.
