A cough in and of itself is nothing to worry about. However, if your cough is accompanied by difficulty breathing an emergency room visit may be a good decision.
Furthermore, if you can’t walk but a few steps without losing your breath, or if your cough is accompanied by a fever and/or chills, and weakness you should consider coming to see us.
Upper respiratory issues are nothing to dismiss lightly. Be smart and if you need emergency attention our team at Kingwood Emergency Hospital will be here ready.
