  • I wouldn't head to the ER but a visit to the doctor is not a bad idea.

  • Are you pregnant? If yes it can point to labour or miscarriage. In that case head to the ER. If you are not pregnant than go to your doctor tomorrow. It can be anything. You can have cold or flu. You could lift something heavy or on the bad way. You can have too tight socks or shoes. But your doctor will be able to answer to your questions tomorrow. I hope you don't have anything serious. I am crossing my fingers:P

  • I would go to your regular, family doctor, or if they can't get you in then urgent care. Unless you are in severe pain, or think something is wrong in the middle of the night, it isn't worth a $1500+ bill.

  • Be sure you tell your Dr about the period. It could be serious.
