Here in Texas, we get a lot of hot days that can make it difficult to stay hydrated. Dehydration can occur as a result of sweating too much on a hot day, from an illness that causes you to vomit excessively, or from any other event that prevents your body from getting the water it needs. No matter the cause or the severity, at the iCare ER & Urgent Care in Frisco and South Fort Worth, TX our team of doctors are experienced in treating both the causes and symptoms of dehydration. Our modern facilities are equipped with state-of-the-art tools and technology, private exam rooms, and an onsite CLIA/COLA certified laboratory so that we can quickly diagnose and treat your dehydration. Offering IV medication fluids and other emergency care, you can rest assured that iCare can help.
Without treatment, dehydration can affect your health in serious ways. If you notice symptoms of dehydration after being in the heat or after being sick, you should visit the iCare center as soon as possible. Generally, symptoms include extreme thirst, dry mouth, a swollen tongue, muscle weakness, dizziness or faintness, exhaustion, confusion, a racing heart, headache, dark urine, and decreased urine. Additionally, if you experience a fever over 101º F, vomiting that lasts longer than a day or diarrhea that lasts longer than 2 days, sudden weight loss, low blood pressure, sunken eyes and dry skin, reduced sweating, or extreme confusion and weakness, you should come in for treatment immediately. You may need to be treated in our 24/7 emergency room if you have a fever above 103º F along with severe weakness or lethargy, difficulty breathing, chest pain, stomach pain, unconsciousness, seizures, or no urine output for 12 hours.

"Extreme chest pain woke me up Saturday mid night. I thought I was having a heart attack since I never experienced this type of pain. I went to iCare which is right cross the street. When I got there I couldn’t find my health insurance card in my wallet. But they sent me into the ER right away. The nurses and the doctor were professional. After some questions and checking, the Dr. Paul told me it wasn’t a heart attack but a heart burn caused by stomach acid reflux. After injunction of medicine, I felt much more relieved. The Dr. Paul patiently explained the cuases of it and answered the questions I asked. I felt I was well treated there. They also gave me time to wake up my family through phone calls in order to get my insurance information."- Y.L. / Google / Mar 26, 2019
