UTI and mood
I went to the ER this morning bc my dr's nurse told me to. I thought I had appendicitis. I don't, thank god, but I have a UTI. my mood has been super angry the whole weekend and it feels out of character and uncomfortable. Could the infection cause negative mood?

Re: UTI and mood
Yes! My adult daughter gets frequent UTI's and her first indication of the infection is always severe anxiety.

I hope your UTI clears up quickly. They are not fun :(

Re: UTI and mood
Thank you so much Laurie. I suspected. I really hope this anger is from the UTI. It is really uncomfortable, and I am being a total ***** to my family. So they want nothing to do with me. Which sucks because I need support from my mom.

Re: UTI and mood
You're welcome! I forgot to mention that my daughter saw a urologist because of her chronic UTI's...the doctor told her that it is known that UTI's can cause mood issues, many patients report such a thing, but it isn't exactly clear why.
