My 91 year old father is home w/my mother who has ALS. She is doing quite poorly.

Anyway, she wants to go to the bathroom EVERY TEN MINUTES!

I called her primary doc and asked if he could prescribe an antibiotic w/out seeing her, as it would be tough to get her in there. So he did. She's only been on it two days.

But my question is: Is this part of the disease?

I'm thinking she has a UTI, but maybe this is ALS-related?

I'd think a UTI as well unless she's on Lithium. Made me pee like a racehorse.

Thank you, Al.

The ALS Clinic didn't think it was related to her condition, but you never know.
