My Kidneys Hurt And I'm Freaking Out

Hey. I've had a kidney infection before, years ago. Now my kidneys ache, I'm suddenly (as of a couple days ago) nauseous all the time, and apparently I've had many/most of the symptoms of kidney disease for months now and just didn't put the pieces together. I have an appointment for Monday morning to see a doctor at my usual clinic. Am I okay to wait a few more days or is this an emergency room situation? Is there anything I can be doing in the meantime to feel less awful? [more inside]

life or limb

If you show up at an emergency room (in the US) with a limb in a tourniquet and claim that you got injected/infected/poisoned/exposed to something fatal on that limb (dimethylmercury for example, but others exist), will they amputate it on request?
