    To go to the ER or not to ....

    how sick do you have to be to go to the emergency room?
    I've got allergies and asthma and both are acting up right now making it hard to breath and I dont have my asthma pump so it wont get better... i dont like to take over the counter meds like aspirin so I usually just tough it out but now on top or difficulty breathing and sneezing like crazy I've started coughing so hard I can taste blood and my whole body feels hot except my toes and fingers ... but I don't want to go to the ER to find out its just a cold and there's nothing they can do about it ... what would you do? how far would you let things go before going to the ER?

    I dont usually feel like everything is serious and needs to be delt with right away so I wait ... but this time I have a reason ... the only person who can drive me is at work lol
    my grandpa can't see out one eye even though he claims he can still drive and I'm not willing to risk my life to get to the ER just for them to tell me its a cold lol .. >.<
    So i probably wont get to go for hours yet i don't think it's gonna kill me it just hurts when I cough, sneeze, swallow, talk or laugh ^-^ I've locked myself up in the room so so I wont have to talk or eat but the cats are here and that messes with my allergies *pouts*

    The 'Emergency Room', is just that, for life threatening Emergencies!!! If your not about to keel over and die, make an appointment with a medical clinic or family practitioner, as the medical fees are much much lower then a ER visit...
    FAVOURITE THREADS EXPLAIN why, or risk an infraction.

    Well if I was in your situation I'd go, just to be safe... it sounds really bad... maybe they could help somehow

    But it takes a lot for me too to go to a doctor. Mostly because my mum is almost like one. My mum always knows what to do so I barely need any other help. Appart from the sickness is for a longer time than 3 days ,which means that I need a doctors sign for my school. Plus I'm health enough and when I get sick I do everything that is asked to get better.
    Me and my sis got sick with flu. Well my mum said you have to drink a lot and I knew that eating a lot will help me get healthy soon too. So I ate almost as usual, even though it all ended up on the floor at first While my sister didn't eat anything because she felt sick. Guess what? I got better in a week while she was sick for three weeks.

    If you can't breathe....I suggest going to the Clinic, just to get checked out.
    You know..In case the sickness is something worse than you think it is.

    My ER policy:

    ~ Are you bleeding uncontrollably?
    ~ Have you been attacked by an animal/person/vehicle?
    ~ Have you been impaled by something unnatural?
    ~ Are you losing control of your body by means of seizures, fainting spells, sudden blindness/deafness/numbness/etc.?

    And so on. It ought to be serious.
