Question: Spoke with urologist from this site before, his advice was as follows:

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...

Detailed Answer:
Dear patient,

Just go in the emergency room and ask for help. If the hospital does not hospitalize you, they will prescribe antibiotics at least.
If not, get them prescribed by your family doctor.
All you need is to take some antibiotics (such as Azytromycine) some antiinflammatory (Tylolhot), multivitamine Complex and eat healthy fresh juices, teas, and good food. Few deep breathe every half hour will help keep the lungs functioning. Take adequate rest.

At the most important is you try to keep your inner peace. Sometimes all you need to get better is the inner peace.
Remember that you are loved and that the urinary or the pulmonary infection will go away soon.
Do not worry, cause there is nothing to worry.

I wish you a fast relief and I know that you will have it soon.

Best Regards,
Dr. Eni

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?

I have had a thudding heartbeat for two days, off and on, mostly on. Also accompanied by shortness of breath. The heartbeat isn't fast or irregular, but I can feel it, like it's heavy in my chest. I've had this before a few years ago, and my doctor thought it was anxiety and wanted to out me on an anti anxiety drug, but I felt like it was a physical issue instead of anxiety. I have low stress, not usually anxious, work out a few times a week, non smoker (for 5 years) recently lost about 35 lbs (1-1/2 years ago) Could this be allergies?
