I wonder what the situation would be for you under National Health Service in Great Britain or under the Canadian system. As visiting foreigners, when Elaine or I got sick in London, we were seen on a walk in basis, we had to pay a fee and we paid a small fee for prescriptions. Perhaps $20.00 for the doctor or so, though I don't think the locals paid out of pocket, and we paid maybe$15.00 for the meds, which is what we pay here for the co-pay for out cheap meds. I think the locals don't pay anything out of pocket.
I don't know what it would be in Canada now.
More importantly, I'm sorry you're sick, and I hope you get better very quickly. Elaine and I had some really foul colds and had us coughing like industrial accidents in a boiler factory for 3-4 weeks each, and I hear that's been sweeping the nation like a top forties tune or a new broom, whichever most takes your fancy. Get better soon. Then kick some dentist Rear end.
Just think, no matter how bad it gets, You could be at the dentist. You could be at the dentist. You could be at the dentist.
