Chest pain, pressure, short breath. E-coli positive on urine test. Cause?

Hi, My daughter has had chest pains, pressure and shortness of breath for almost 3 weeks now. We had had tests run and her chest xrays, eco-cardiogram, ekg, etc all come back clear. This evening her doctor called me to say her urine tested positive for E-Coli. Is there any possible way this could be the cause of her pains?

Thank you for your query.
I understand your concern.
Do not panic.
this is an unlikely cause of chest pain.Vomiting is more common in these caes of UTI.
If the UTI is associated with fever then she might have shortness of breath.
I think she has associated gastritis with UTI. Some antacid gel and antiacid medications should help her out.
Consult your doctor if the problem persists.
Hope this answers your query.
If you have any other queries kindly direct them to me.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
