If you're like me, you probably have a ton of days sitting there waiting to be used because it is never a good time to be sick. If you have tried every other way to get relief with the driving and still had no solution in sight then I would seriously consider calling in sick. (insert GASP here) I know right? Before I get excommunicated by the band world, imagine a world where we are allowed to put our own health (mental and/or physical) and personal matters before everyone else's. I have driven bands to sub zero temp. playoff games while very sick. It's not worth it. If the school wants the band there, they will find a way to get them there while you "recover." I'm pretty sure there are laws against firing someone for being sick. I would understand if you are against fibbing to your bosses so either eat ton of Taco Bell the night before or take a "mental health" day.
