I am wondering if I have a UTI? I m a 46 year-old male. I m an athlete and spend about 3 hours a day training for marathons and triathlons. So, I do a significant amount of running, biking, swimming and core work. I ve had some lower abdominal pain that is right above my pelvic bone. I ve had an abdominal soreness from a lot of recent running. However, I ve started to notice that I have an urgent frequency to urinate. Am I confusing my abdominal injury with a UTI? I don t have any cloudy urine, and it s not painful to urinate. Just the urgency. I just completed a run, and the pain is more intense than before the run. Not painful enough to slow me down...Just a dull pain in that location. I ve iced the area with success over the last few days. Would an abdominal injury have some of the same symptoms as a UTI? Thanks!
I recently started steet bike riding and training for a 70 mile ride. I am new to street biking and love it! I did get my doctors permission to start riding. I have been riding for two months, four times a week with no real problems.My only issue Is that I get extremely out of breath when going uphill, even a small incline, and definite chest pain...doesn t really happen on flat surfaces though.I am on Toprol for tachycardia, which is totally controlled with meds, and a channel blocker for angina from lupus, and have had Pericarditis and pleurisy in the last year.This year I was very determined to fight back against my Lupus. .within reason, of course, and get healthy!I am up to about fifteen miles on flat, regular surfaces, with just some minor chest pain, which I am used to and unconcerned about. I figure something somewhere in my chest area is inflamed from Lupus and just causing annoying pain.Tonight, however, seemed different. I tried a new route with small hills and inclines. I was extremely out of breath almost immediately and had crushing chest pain, I think due to the incline. When I would stop to rest, the pain would slow down alot. Do u think I just have to increase my tolerance for riding up inclines, and this is normal to be out of breath with angina like pain until I build up my tolerance or something I should get checked out? I kind of feel like anyone who is not in great cardio shape would have also been out of breath with chest pain riding up those hills. Do you agree this is normal? I don t want to overreact. My cardiologist has recently suggested a stress test. With all my other tests from Lupus, I m trying to be healthy and not over test. What do you think? T

I am asking this question for my friend. She had chemotherapy two years ago for a very invasive form of breast cancer. For the past six months her incontinence has steadily worsened. She has to change her sheets every night and is exhausted. She is on a fentanyl patch for chronic neuropathic pain as well as anti-depressants. She does not have high blood pressure, but now is experiencing shortness of brearth. She is not satisfied with the care she has been receiving from her physicians and does not know what to do? What would you recommend? Thank you very much.
