In your place, I'd call the nearest Emergency Room (preferrably at a major medical center) and ask for advice. (I worked at an E.R. as a part-time clerk when I was in college, and people frequently called for advice.) If they thought I needed to be seen now, I'd have them bill me for the treatment.
