For the second question in the poll - yes I know it depends of what type of pain and other factors; but just in general where would you rank it?
He (my husband) had a friend take him to the ER where he found out he has viral gastroenteritis (after several blood tests) So I do feel a bit guilty for not taking him myself. Next time I'll be more cautious!
What seems the "best" option?
1 being barely any pain to 10 being nearly dead - How severe does your pain/discomfort have to be before you ask to go to a hospital/doctor?
