heelllppp [pelvic/abdominal pain with nowhere to turn]

Okay friendly vag-paggers [that looks so wrong but it sounds cool?], I've got a problem. A big problem, and my medical care is so totally fucked that I don't know where to turn.

I've been having increasing problems with my ovaries since March 9th, when I had a cyst rupture on the right-hand one. The day after it did so, I was placed back on the Pill [Microgestin FE 1.5/30, to be exact] to try to help ~stabilize~ my periods [absent since November 23rd] and to prevent any more cysts. The night of the 16th [a week to the day, and almost to the hour after the first] a second one came to a head and ruptured, this time on the left.

I have missed one pill in my regimen, but made it up the next day [double dose] as per patient instructions. I am not using the Pill for contraception [I have a tubal ligation] but only for the hormones.

Unfortunately, during a shift at my volunteer gig today, I started getting ~those pains~ again. On both sides at once. Yeah, I know, totally fucked up. It's only gotten worse since then, and now, approximately four and a half hours later, I can barely walk. It hurts. It really hurts, and it hurts so much and is so ... consuming? that driving home I almost ran off the road twice. It does not feel like a UTI/kidney infection, I've had those too many times to not know... and it's pretty much exactly the same as all the other cysts I've had, only... both sides.

Normally I am aware that this would be a call to go to the ER/Urgent Care post-haste, but that's where the problem starts. The clinic I go to has a horrible track record for abdominal pain, especially after normal business hours [because, obviously, everything closes down] - they just tell you to go to the ER. Except... the hospital I go to, the only one within a 45min driving distance, has decided that I'm ~drug seeking~ and pretty much doesn't do jack shit.

I don't know what to do, where to turn, where to go, who to call. I'm also concerned because I'm having funny little things that may [or may not, of course] be connected - severe nausea, lack of appetite [have to basically force food], dessicated throat but water doesn't help [I don't think I'm dehydrated, I've been practically mainlining water for the past week], that sort of thing. So, since the Pill obviously isn't working since I'm getting more cysts, on both sides [which shouldn't even be physically possible!], but I'm also labeled a drug-seeker, I am ... stuck. And, of course, it's the weekend.

Please, guys, help me. I know I absolutely need to get this looked at, if only for pain and nausea control, but I have no idea where to go that will actually treat me. If it helps and there are locals here, I live right outside of Everett, Washington [about 45-60mins north of Seattle]. I know that Overlake and Evergreen are available, but transport is really difficult and it's a hellish drive, especially on a Friday night at rush hour.

Now, if you'll pardon me, I'll be curled up in a ball horking up my salad.
