Customer Question

I have been getting these UTI's for over a year, usually 1 or 2x a month. After antibiotic treatment I become delirious, experience hallucinations pass out, no balance or muscle strength. Last UTI went to ER, I had a heart attact..TCM, broken heart syndrome. My UTI are asymptomatic I only know by slight color change and mild sick feeling. This ECACT scenario almost killed my grandmother. I have a 1cm thrombosis in tip of heart. Severely hypo kinetic in anterior and inferior walls of LV and a kinetic in other spots. I have UTI now. Can I wait 2 days to see urologist?

yes, you can most likely wait 2 days to see a urologist.

you need to get a urine analysis and urine culture to confim bacteria in your urine and what antibiotics it is sensitive to

doctors shouldn't treat a UTI based on your symptoms alone without a urine culture.

a urine culture test can take 2-3 days after a urine sample to see if you have bacteria growing in your urine

overactive bladder muscles, a bladder stone, not drinking enough water can all cause symptoms similar to a UTI.

so using symptoms alone is often unreliable to know if you have bacteria in your urine.
