Why hospital?: If you'd name your location and perhaps insurance, we might find a fit - as it is, you'll have to ask again or seek Tx yourself. Try a druggist - a neighbor or clergy for clinics/doctors. Yes, it sounds like you need Tx. I hope you get it. Best!

Medical care: It is not necessary to go to a hospital for treatment of this illness. Go to an urgent care clinic in you area. Your local medical society can help you find a doctor or clinic that can help you
