Thank you for your question:Yes - I do believe that your symptoms are severe enough that a visit to the emergency department would be appropriate.
Yes - unfortunately it is impossible to exclude a serious medical cause such as an allergic reaction or serious infection over the internet.If you were my family member, friend or patient - I would want you seen TODAY, as soon as possible.
