I have spinal stenosis, bulging discs and was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia?

I have spinal stenosis, bulging discs and was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I take Ibuprofen 800mg 3x a day; Gabapenting 600mg 3x a day, lidocaine patched 2-3 every 12 hours. Nothing seems to help. I don’t see my pain doctor until 9/6. Shoud I go to the ER? I am in so much pain that it took my 45 minutes to get dressed this morningl

Age: 48
Female
Medications: Ibuprofen, gabapentin, lidocaine patchs

You should not suffer needlessly. If pain becomes intolerable , opioids may be prescribed. I think the ER is a good idea.
