I'm 62 in good...

I'm 62 in good health. I have had the flu since Wednesday (self diagnosed) with no improvement. Headache, body aches, burning eyes, uncontrolled cough, sore throat, hard to breath, my Samsung phone sa years my Sp02 is 86. Should I go to emergency or can I wait until Instacare opens?

Doctor's Assistant: Did you have a recent injury to the eye? How is your vision?

No they are fine

I don't need an eye Dr. I have the Flu

It sounds like the flu combined with either a viral or bacterial bronchitis

You definitely need to see a doctor especially with that O2 saturation

But instacare is fine--you don't need the ER

I'm a Family Practice doctor--your question was posted in the eye category

Please let me know if you need any more information
