Question: I was @ hospital last night... being treated for a urinary tract infection that is refusing to go away, plus was not told by hospital staff that I am developing bad pneumonia, this was told to caretaker of assisted living place I am in. Should I have been kept at hospital since I am disabled, paraplegic since 1992?

There is no one awake for me to turn to for help Dr. It is 2am here in AZ.. I looked into being hospitalized and talked to 2 different hospitals...
I wanted to try another hospital than the one last night, was told I had to talk to Banner Baywood medical center, which I spoke of earlier.... Charge nurse doesn't know what to do to help me....I do feel the heavyness in my chest ergo I can't sleep...on top of the stress of finding medical staff so incompetent. No one can validate my 911 call if I make one....I'm close to mental breakdown, tears falling from a soul taught not to shed tears when faced by the hardests challenges...

How can I follow your advice when ALL doors are closed to me, when I need help the most?

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?
