When should you go to the ER? At Victoria ER 24 Hour Emergency Center, your emergency is our priority. Learn about the 5 most common emergency symptoms for an ER visit.
Lacerations & Wounds
When uncertain about how serious your injury may be, Victoria ER 24 Hour Emergency Center believes it is best to seek immediate emergency care. Lacerations can require sutures depending on the severity of the wound or could require a tetanus shot if the injury resulted from a human or animal bite.
People are frequently visiting the ER due to back pain. Although some back pain will be relieved with rest, unrelenting pain accompanied with fever, numbness, or weakness would require emergency care for an underlying medical condition.
Headaches & Migraines
Headaches are common reasons to visit an emergency room. Migraines are usually presented with symptoms that are not presented with your average headache, such as fever, weakness, double vision, or confusion. The goal for ER doctors is to ensure that there is no life-threatening issue and to help reduce suffering.
Although chest pain typically aligns with heart-related issues, there could be a variety of causes. Chest pain is common and can be linked to heart attacks which would require immediate intervention from an ER physician as they can be fatal.
Abdominal pain is not normal, and is commonly seen in an ER when the pain is severe and unrelenting. Severe stomach pain accompanied with fever, vomiting, difficulty breathing, and other symptoms is an emergency and would require care from a facility like Victoria ER 24 Hour Emergency Center.
Without the wait of an over-crowded hospital emergency room, Victoria ER offers no wait times in a comfortable, inviting waiting room designed to deliver the most pleasant patient experience possible. We are prepared to handle your medical emergency 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and no appointment is needed.
