Should I go to the ER???

I have pretty severe pain on the right side of my stomach- by my rib cage... It hurts worse when I take a breath or move- it's also tender to touch.

I feel dizzy and nauseous .

I have insurance but a $75 co-pay.

What would you do?

  • Go. You don't have to pay your co-pay up front at the ER. They can't deny you. They will bill you and if you still can't pay it, ask for a charity application from the billing department.

  • How long have you been experiencing these symptoms? Do you have a fever? Increased heart/pulse rate? Have you thrown up?

  • I'd go. Pain on right side, dizzy , nausea, could be appendicitis.

  • Same symptoms I had with my gallbladder. If you are really concerned go on to the ER.

  • Go to the hospital. Don't diagnose yourself. Have a professional assess your condition. Hopefully it is nothing, but if it is gallbladder - or anything else - taking care of it in a timely manner is essential.
