While urgent care clinics are great options for seeking immediate care, there are certain medical conditions where you should NOT go to an urgent care. For example, if you have severe bleeding or signs of a heart attack, the urgent care provider will ask you to go to the Emergency Room (ER).

When to go to the ER?

Any serious illness or injury that seems life-threatening, you should go to the ER. Unfortunately, according to a study by health experts nearly 70% of ER visits are unnecessary and could have been avoided. So here are some of the most common reasons to go to the emergency room:

  • Severe chest pain
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Intestinal bleeding
  • Stroke
  • Severe bleeding
  • Paralysis
  • Severe dizziness or unconsciousness
  • Vaginal bleeding with pregnancy
