The Dr looked at my book of documents, came back in the room and said I am going to get you out of here quick. As usual raithing in pain on the bed the a nurse came in and gave me two shots, one in the arm and one in the hip, in minutes it was over. very powerful but fast. I can not give dosages over the MB but will be glad to share on private message or e-mail.
I can say it was finergin and dilaudid, the first time I didn't have to put up with all the sh-t they put us through. I think they were just tierd and wanted me to go away or maybe just nice. again the paper work really helpped to show them I had done my home work. good luck and stay well

Such great progress!  How exciting to not only be treated quickly but to get the medications correct.  I hope you never need the ER again but if you do, they sound terrific.

Thanks G
But they don't hand that stuff out at riteaid, so the only place to get it is the ER/Dr but this was the first time I was in and out in about an hour, the hang over was hard but worth it, over 24 hrs. the longest wait was for the cab to take me home.

What paperwork did you bring in?? I have had half way decent ER trips and horrible ones.  One of those visits, I was on day 6, of pains/projectile vomiting, migraines, and day 3 of getting a few sips of fluid in.  By the time I arrived, I was so weak and nearly passed out. My vitals were 220/200. HR 200.  It took them about 45 minutes to even get an IV in and the doctor sat there, letting me suffer in agony.  He got irritated because I could not talk long enough without vomiting.  After, several hours of fluids, he was discharging me to my families protest because I could not sip anything at that point.  He told me to go home and sip Gatorade. I felt like I was dying and knew the cycle was in full force.  He still sent me home, vomiting and in pain.  Two hours later, my family had to take me back because I was so lethargic, I could not lift my head to vomit and pain was horrid.  The second ER doctor, admitted me and my stay was 6 days, thankfully, the staff put me on a pain pump, fluids, nausea meds etc but I still spent 4 full blown more days in cycle and 2 attempting to rest and come out of it.  I wait so long to go to ER because, they can be so mean and nasty, and this time I waited too long.  The last time I went on say 2 of cycle, ER MD said,, severely dehydrated and did IV fluids, nausea meds and Benadryl. I laid withering in agony between vomiting begging for pain relief.  Because the sound is so loud, (I cannot control how loud it is) and there were only curtains, this other patient was screaming oh my Gosh, shut her up and starting screaming, everytime I vomited.  FOr the pain, Benadryl?  Seriously?  I ended up begging to be sent home after 4 bags of fluids, because I would rather be in agnony in my own bed than surrounded by people screaming at you to stop vomiting.  I could not understand why he would not address my pain, and when I explained I felt like my throat was closing up and I was having trouble breathing, he stated if you can talk you can breathe.  Again, my vitals dangerously high.  Fever rises when I am vomiting, as well.  It has gotten to the point, where I will lay here, feeling half dead before I go to ER because I have treated so poorly.  I found, if they start fluids, with PM, nausea meds, it helps the pain and if I fall asleep, that is the best thing that can happen.  This has been the most debalating  things, I have ever experienced. Pure hell. What do you give ER doctors, or any doctor that can help in the process?

Sue, people have been trying to take a letter from their treating doctor for their treatment protocol. Or what is useful in treating their episode. Sometimes it helps, and sometimes the doctors ignore it completely. But we recommend that as another layer of help.
