33. Yes, I have
And I'm just like you about going to the ER - can't afford it and hate sitting there waiting for hours (when I broke my back, it was FIVE HOURS before I even saw a doctor).

I got bit a while back on my hand. It was about 8 at night and I had to work the next day. I didn't want to go to the ER but it was swelling up. I told my hubby, "if it gets to my wrist, I'll go in."

So we played some cards for a while and soon it reached my wrist. I said, "well, it's not so bad - if it gets to my elbow, I'll go in."

We played more cards. I'd taken some Benadryl but the swelling continued. I could actually see it spreading slowly up my arm. By about 10, it had reached my elbow but now I REALLY didn't want to go so I said, "well, if it gets to my shoulder, I'll go in."

It stopped about two inches below my shoulder. I saw my doc the next day. He just shook his head and sighed.....

Feel better... :hug:
