First of all, most places will not turn you down if you say you don’t have enough money to visit a doc. Second of all, internet costs money, so I’m surprised you can’t manage to find any money available for something this important! For 5 months, you REALLY need to see a doc because this is important. Go to ER if you have too!
If it is a muscle problem, an anti inflammatory like ibuprofen can be helpful, but they are usually not intended to be used as the only treatment for severe or debilitating pain. Take two extra strength as the bottle recommends. even though you are truly and majorly broke, I would suggest going to the drug store and asking your pharmacist. They can not diagnose you but they have so much experience in medications (way more than dr’s) so they could give you better advice than anyone on here. By the way, their advice is free… so good luck!
I just wanted to say one more time that working in the nursing field has taught me that pain like this for 5 months IS a BIG deal and you really need to make seeing a doc your number 1 priority. It might not be anything, but it could be. And it is affecting your life, so get on that… be a mooch and borrow some money from someone.
