For most chronic medical problems, you should go to your regular healthcare provider first. You’ll get the best care there because they know you and your medical history. Generally, you should go to urgent care clinics when your doctor is unavailable, but certain issues warrant a trip to the emergency room.

A trip to the ER should not be taken lightly, go if you are experiencing the following symptoms:

  • Life-threatening problems
  • Chest pain
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Coughing or vomiting blood
  • Severe burns
  • Deep cuts or bleeding that won’t stop
  • Sudden blurred vision
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Seizures
  • High fevers
  • Sudden dizziness, weakness, or loss of coordination or balance
  • Numbness in the face, arm, or leg
  • Sudden, severe headache (not a migraine)
