As an adult, we know you’ve got enough on your plate without having to deal with getting sick. When you come down with the latest bug, get stuck with the flu, or just aren’t feeling well, visit Xpress Wellness Urgent Care. We’re more than just an urgent care facility! We offer prompt, friendly, and effective adult primary care services. Here are some of the most common ailments we treat adults for at our Oklahoma and Kansas locations.
Common Cold & Flu
In most cases, a common cold will subside with a few days of rest, over-the-counter medications, and drinking lots of fluids. However, when you’re experiencing that dreaded sore throat, runny or congested nose, fever, and cough — and you just can’t seem to shake it — we invite you to schedule an appointment with us. We can determine if you’ve got a nasty cold, the seasonal flu, or anything else that may be affecting your health.
If you feel like your common cold has morphed into something more severe, you may be experiencing bronchitis. Bronchitis affects your breathing, inflaming your air passageways, and it is often accompanied by a severe, painful cough. This illness is very common and can also include malaise, a runny nose, chest pressure, a sore throat, and a feeling of shortness of breath. Let us take a look at you and diagnose if you’ve come down with bronchitis.
Severe Headaches & Migraines
Having a migraine can be literally incapacitating. If you experience intense headaches or migraines on a regular basis, it is possible that you may be suffering from chronic migraines. Sometimes these are genetic, and sometimes these can be brought on by different triggers like caffeine, poor sleep habits, and stress. Xpress Wellness can help determine the cause of your headaches and set up a plan of action to relieve your symptoms.
Diabetes occurs when your body does not produce any or enough of a hormone called insulin. This hormone regulates how your body stores and uses the sugars from the food that you eat. Diabetes is a lifelong disease for which there is no current cure — however, it is very treatable. Common symptoms of diabetes include:
Frequent feelings of dehydration
Pain or numbness in extremities
Unexpected weight loss
Nausea and vomiting
Just because you’re hungry doesn’t necessarily mean that you have diabetes. However, if you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, we invite you to visit us and speak with one of our health providers. We can determine if you are at risk for diabetes, as well as treatment plans if you are diagnosed.
While most individuals with asthma have been diagnosed with it since childhood, it is possible to experience what is known as adult-onset asthma. Regardless of how long you’ve had asthma symptoms, Xpress Wellness can determine the severity of your case, and prescribe the proper medications and strategies for living with this disease. While there is no known cure for asthma, the symptoms can be effectively treated and controlled with the proper resources. If you experience feelings of a shortness of breath, frequent coughing, wheezing, difficulty breathing, or a tight-chested feeling, you may have asthma. Schedule an appointment online now with Xpress Wellness, and our health providers will determine your next steps.
