Actually, I went to the doc-in-a-box, my own doctor having a lead time on appointments of over a month, but it comes to the same thing, right? They're like automobile mechanics: it's not easy to find a really good one but when something breaks, you can usually find some outfit to get your car running. And most of them are honest workers, or as honest as they have to be.
I left with a referral to a specialist and a prescription for better painkillers -- non-opioid, which suits me fine; this is not a high-minded stance about addiction, it's the intestinal slowdown opioids cause that I find extremely offputting.
Went back to bed after a quick meal when I got home and I feel better now. Hoping it will last.
