    You really do need to go to ER and get treatment.

  • It sounds like you should go to a doctor and just make payments if you have to. You could have an infection like pnumonia or bronchitis.

  • ER won't turn you away. Just make sure you tell them you can't afford it and don't sign the paper they shove in front of you saying "if medicaid won't pay, you have to."
    Hope you feel better.
