What should I do? *another question*

So I am doing my externship as a medical assistant for school, and we aren't supposed to miss any days, at all, but now I have a bad chest cold or something, and don't if I should stay home, and go to the doctor, or stick it out at work. I missed Monday because of this, and I missed a Wednesday a couple days ago because my DD was in a car wreck. What do you think? My chest hurts to even swallow let alone cough, my throat hurts, and my nose is runny. My chest hurts so bad its even painful to breathe sometimes. I just don't now if this is worth possibly getting into trouble over.

So my doctor's office wasn't open for some dumb reason, and I have Tricare so I have to have referral to see anyone (other than E.R.) thats not my PCP. I called my OB and they said I may have to go to the E.R. What do you think? I can A. Go to another doc and pay full price out of pocket and have an appt. or B. Go to the E.R. and wait God knows how long, but not have to pay anything. At this point my school HAS to have a doctor's note, and my chest has gotten worse.

Oh and the baby will be OK right? She has been moving fine, but I just don't want her to catch it if she can lol.

Do you work with patients? If so, you aren't supposed to come in sick and expose them.

Go to the ER it's free and you could start getting better right away.
