Default questions about pain meds and drug tests

My foot is not much better. It is achy and throbbing most of the time and sometimes it has sharp, stabbing pain. So I schedule the follow up appointment with the foot surgeon. He cannot see me until Monday afternoon. The anti-inflammatory prescription I got on Saturday is gone; it was just a 5 day supply. I have called the primary care clinic where I went Saturday to ask for them to call in a new pain prescription and I had to leave a message. I am ready to lay in the floor and cry now. I am at work and flipping miserable but I cannot not be here for the next few days.

I have left over narcotics from a year ago. If I take them even though the prescription is over a year old and should I be drug tested, will an old prescription cover my tuckus or can it cost me a job?????
