I've been diagnosed with nonalcoholic fatty liver, have multiple kidney stones. I have blood in urine for 5months now its bright red blood, no ins.

Went to ER for severe lower right ab pain and back pain. Dr said I had kidney stone and hematuria. Did urine and blood tests only but no cat scan, why?

May still be a UTI: Usually, pain on urination (dysuria) is a symptom of a UTI from which the offending bacteria can be grown from the urine. Less commonly dysuria can occur from the irritation of passing a kidney stone alone (i.e. Not a uti). In other situations, the laboratory can't isolate the microbe because it's too difficult to grow in culture (e.g. Chlamydia)- in that case, you may still actually have a uti. ...Read more
