Herniated discs anyone?

Anyone have any experience? I'm suffering from 2 herniated discs in my neck and have been in excruciating pain (neck, shoulder, arm) all weekend. My neuro referred me to a pain mgmt specialist, but the appt. isnt until Thursday and that is just a consult. I have an appt for steroid injections on the 16th. Anyway, what can I do to deal with the pain until then? I've been taking Advil like candy and have tramadol to take, but it does nothing. I've alternated ice and heat, rested all weekend, used icy-hot with no results. Help, I'm desperate. I almost went to the er several times over the weekend but I'm sure they are packed with flu people and I don't want to go sit there for hours unless I know they can really help me. DH thinks I should call pain mgmt to see if I can get in tomorrow. Of course I don't want anyone thinking I'm a drug shopper either I really don't know how I can work tomorrow, I have a 50 minute commute and that alone will be horrible. Any advice?
