Fast Emergency Help for Serious Symptoms
Not every ache, pain or concern will send you to an ER, but here are some symptoms you should always take seriously (and to the nearest emergency room). But don’t worry, we’re removing the wait across Medical City ERs to make sure you get the help you need fast.
Sharp Stomach Pain
If something tells you your stomach pain is serious, listen to your “gut.” If pain is severe or comes with stomach tenderness, vomiting or dizziness — call 911 or go to your nearest ER.
Sometimes back pain isn’t about your back at all. If it’s continuous, severe or comes with a high fever, leg weakness or loss of bladder/bowel control, seek out an emergency room.
Out of Breath
We probably don’t need to tell you to call 911 or head to the nearest ER if you’re having trouble breathing—but we just did.
Breaks & Aches
If you think it might be broken…or a bump to the head leads to dizziness, nausea or unconsciousness…or it just plain hurts, a lot, anywhere—head to the ER to get checked out.
If you are experiencing an emergency, call 911.
