I think it depends on what it is. My doc always treats me, last time I had kidney stones for months an she treated me for those too.

Lmao ok that was very helpful! I meant my OB doc always treats me.

Lol! I'm glad you clarified. I thought you meant your regular doc at first! It's a sinus infection. I don't know if I need antibiotics, but I'm in so much pain. I don't know how I'm going to make it through work tomorrow. Ugh.

I think you need antibiotics. I posted in your other thread about that. Those things are miserable. Can you try a steamy shower for now until you can get into the doctor? Maybe that will clear your sinuses out. Maybe not even get in the shower, just turn the water to the hottest it will go close the door and sit in there.

My OB told me to always call them first. If nothing else, they could recommend a safe prescription over the phone that you can ask for when you see your primary care doc!

I normally don't get sick, but I did with #3. By about the 3rd day I was going in for an OB visist anyways, so just asked while I was there and she gave me a script. Hope you feel better soon!

i think it depends on your doc. my OB generally only wants me to se them for pregnancy related stuff, and my family dr for other things...
