Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

I just got pulled by the neck during an altercation and the left side of my neck is now swollen and kinda numb. I don’t have money for emergency room. I don’t have insurance and I don’t want to call 911. What should I do?

Most emergency rooms will treat you regardless of your insurance status. This is especially true for public hospitals in the United States. Soft tissue injuries usually resolve with ice and rest. However, head and neck injury is especially serious because of the major blood vessels and nerves in the area. It is difficult to tell the extent of injury without a proper physical exam. Therefore, you should go to your local emergency room to be evaluated.
