Not on call: Physicians can't be on call all the time - it is likely they felt that the issue did not require him/her to be there and it is likely they contacted him or her and gave him information.

I have been having auras all day on and off as well as being very dizzy and nauseous. Could this just be a partial seizure? I'm not sure if I should go to the ER or wait until I can call doctor Monday.
Suggest: Not clear to me what symptoms you experience beyond being dizzy and nauseated, BUT an ER visit is likely to be disappointing based on your issues. Rather, telephone your doctor today, discuss what is occurring and decide the next step. Cannot diagnose partial seizures based on information provided. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Should i take my son to the doctors? Two days ago my 20month old son got his toes hurt bad we took him to the ER and he had a procedure called repair nail bed foot on two toes on his right foot he now has to wear a cast going up his whole leg and foot but
It : It sounds like he had some sort of procedure for a toenail on 2 toes, if i'm reading your question correctly (help us help you by using punctuation). If this is correct, bleeding is normal, and they should have warned you about it. But now, at 2 days, there shouldn't be any new blood. If he's currently bleeding, then my answer is yes, take him back to the er. If it's old, dry blood on the bandage, there is no need to panic. But i assume you have a follow-up appointment to check on this in the next few days, right? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My roommate is vomiting up blood and she is refusing to go to the ER should I call an ambulance behind her back ? Or just leave it
Leave it: Unless your friend is deemed incompetent she has the right to refuse any medical treatment. If you observe her to lose consciousness then you can call an ambulance on the assumption that a reasonable person would wish treatment under those circumstances. If she were to regain consciousness she could continue to refuse treatment however. You should encourage her to seek treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Are a few hives & facial heat, flushing reasons to go to the ER or call 911? I didn't know what i was reacting to but was fine after taking xyzal (levocetirizine).
Hive flushing: If you were fine, i don't think a trip to the er is necessary. More severe symptoms such as wheezing, shortness of breath, low blood pressure or throat swelling would be concerns that need to be addressed at the er. I recommend you see and allergist/immunologist and consider getting an epipen, (epinephrine) Adrenaclick or Auvi-Q for anaphylaxis treatment. ...Read more
If I have thoughts of suicide but know i will not actually do it, why should I go to the ER or call 911?
Could get worse: The issue is that your complaint is one slice in time and in the absence of a longitudinal relationship a mental health professional cannot understand the context of the statement and this makes the individual who is listening to try and help you to the maximal extent possible. If you are choosing to not go then consider calling a crisis hotline, sometimes talking about it can help! stay safe! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
