ryuuchild tells us more.

OP here. So I went in cause of the asthma attack and due to the treatments they gave me my heart rate was up to 130 to 150 and would not go down. The Doctor ordered an EKG and a blood and urine test to see if it showed anything. All that cameback w as that I had a UTI. I hadnt even started showing signs of a UTI so go figure right. Feeling much better and my heart rate was down this morning. Thanks for all the laughs made my day.

I don't even want to know what the dirty doctor did to open your windpipe.


how do you get a UTI at a hospital?

While you certainly can get sick at a hospital, getting a uti there strikes me as improbable. She probably had it before she went, and was diagnosed there.

A lot of ER docs like to check a urine sample while you're there for various reasons. It was probably an accidental finding that they decided to treat. Also, the elevated heart rate was most likely from the albuterol to treat the asthma attack.

I'm a dumbass, what's a UTI?

Urinary Tract Infection.

Urinary tract infection.

Untimely toaster incident.

Meds for asthma: Side effects may include infection of the urinary tract and elevated heart rate. WARNING: do not use with asthma as your heart and/or bladder may explode

Wait, unless I misread your comment, your saying that meds for asthma should not be used with asthma? How does that work?

It's an exaggerated joke on modern medicine sort of how GTA 5 is an exaggerated joke on modern society

i wonder what you'll leave with if you go back for the uti? Mad cow disease?

Probably antibiotics.

What? You people never heard of a urinary track infection causing somebodys prions to fold into what some might call beautiful origami?

Try going in for an ear infection and coming out with Thyroid cancer. Weird shit happens when going to the doctor, haha. Good luck with that UTI!

I hope that means you got a UTI diagnosis and not that the hospital gave you a UTI. Sorry OP, that sucks. But remember there are still far worse ways to leave an ER.

Time to give them a bad review on Yelp!
