What Are Respiratory Viruses?
A respiratory virus is an acute illness caused by a variety of viruses that affect the upper respiratory tract. They are spread by droplets coughed or sneezed into the air and then inhaled, or indirectly by contaminated hands coming in contact with the nose or eyes. When you have a respiratory virus, you may experience a fever, congestion, sneezing, cough, sinus pain or pressure, sore throat, body aches, and headache. At Rockwall Rapid Care, our highly skilled medical team treats respiratory viruses, including common colds, influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and COVID-19. We offer urgent care appointments so you can receive treatment quickly. Contact our office in Rockwall, TX to schedule a visit for yourself or your child.
What are the Symptoms of Respiratory Viruses?
Respiratory virus symptoms can range from mild to severe and often mimic the symptoms of an unrelated condition. Still, common symptoms of respiratory viruses to watch for include:
- Sore throat
- Runny nose
- Sinus pain
- Nasal congestion
- Labored breathing
- Body aches
How Are Respiratory Viruses Treated?
While mild respiratory viruses often resolve with at-home care, like getting lots of rest and drinking plenty of fluids, you might want to seek professional treatment for symptoms that continue to worsen, especially if you have a hard time breathing. During an urgent care appointment at Rockwall Rapid Care, our team will assess your symptoms and perform any required testing in order to provide a diagnosis. We have an in-house imaging lab where chest x-rays can be performed if needed. We also offer COVID-19, flu, and strep testing. To help you get relief from uncomfortable symptoms, we may recommend over-the-counter medications, such as pain relievers, nasal decongestants, and cough suppressants. If you have a bacterial infection, a course of antibiotics can be prescribed.
Rockwall Rapid Care Reviews
Amazing seriously just go here! My normal urgent care (texas med.) Was closed due to short staffing. I had symptoms of a severe kidney infection. Oh the irony because I educated patients in kidney failure for a job. So I looked online and signed in to go to rapid care. Best decision I could have made. 20 min. Later I arrived with my kids in tow. You pull up press a button on the intercom and someone comes out. Just as I was speaking to the tech at the window my 7yo projectile vomited ,(this is my life). She was totally fine apparently just needed to puke. It was everywhere in my car. The tech was amazing. He got me a trash bag gloves cleaner, water, and even a towel for my daughter to put on her booster seat. We joked that maybe she should be seen to. After cleaning up my one child we we're brought in, I gave my sample etc the normal stuff. They treated my kidney infection with meds. And on my way I went. They are awesome go here
As a retired RN and new to Texas i was impressed by the efficiency and cost savings when i found myself needing quick and efficient care on a Saturday afternoon. I recommend giving this hidden gem a try if you’re caught on a weekend and don’t want to spend your day waiting in an overcrowded ER/ urgent care.
Fantastic place. Highly organized with a dedicated, professional, welcoming staff. I’ve never been here before today and this will be my new go-to when I need medical assistance in a hurry.
I took a good fall yesterday & needed to get some X-rays done. After calling Carenow with a 4 hr wait & Medpost no X-rays that day, I stumbled across this place. It had 5 star reviews too. I decided to go & the appt process was super easy, checking in was a breeze, ZERO WAIT TIME (huge perk), the rooms were high tech, clean, and awesome chairs. I was in & out with X-rays done in 30 min!! I am a huge fan now & I will be singing their praises as they are much deserved. Thank you to the staff for your fast & efficient work.
Needed a sports physical at the last minute and they came to the rescue!
