    I think you are fine to wait until next week. The ER is for true emergenices-bleeding, not breathing, etc.  The other thing I would try is calling your doctor’s office and tell them the problem, most offices have same day appointments or short visits that patients can schedule much quicker than a physical appointment (those are longer appointments).

    I wouldn’t go into the ER, but if you are that concerned go to a walk-in.  I also agree that you should call your doctor, even if he/she can’t get you in earlier that can at least offer advice if you need to be seen ASAP or if it can wait.

    A lot of urgent care places let you make an “appointment”, i.e, you get put on the list beore you go in.  Cuts down on the wait time.  That’s what I’d do.  Honestly, as a former scuba diver, the words air bubbles and rib cage kinda freak me out a bit.

    i would probably wait until next week if it were me.  also, could iti be getting sore b/c you keep pressing on it?

    I definitely wouldn’t go to an ER, but a trip to urgent care, or at least a call to the nurse advice line probably isn’t a bad idea.  The problem with keeping your appointment is that’s for a physical– depending on your dr’s office, they may not have time to examine it, and they may end up telling you to make an appointment and come back, thus further delaying a diagnosis/treatment.

    I”m sure waiting until next week is fine. UNLESS in the next few days it starts really  hurting bad quickly or grows quickly then I’d go in asap. Otherwise it probably won’t make much of a difference to wait.
