Any fever?: Might want to have a chest x-ray done and a urinalysis. When relating your history on heath tap its ok to be more specificic about the type of muscular dystrophy you have. If you have, for instance fsh dystrophy and you have these symptoms i'd look for aspiration pneumonia before thinking about uti. Use of hydrocodone and Ativan (lorazepam) can increase your risk of micro-aspiration.Due to sedation.
