medical question, need advice please regarding how to handle situation in ref. to tricare
AD family, Tricare prime remote. No MTF near us.
Primary care doc is 45 mins away, no one is answering their phones for an urgent care referral.
Pregnant, had a cold last week, labored breathing today with feeling short of breath. Sounds weird, but I feel "tingly" in my face like I do when I am close to passing out. But I do NOT FEEL like I am going ot pass out. No dizziness, no weakness, etc.
I don't feel this is an ER situation, do I just go to Urgent care without approval? Can tricare itself give me a referral instead of my Primarycare?
Need to get this taken care of ASAP, I have appointments at 11 ( my ob won't treat me for this. Last time I had a regular medical condition, they sent me to my primary care doc) TIA.
