Can A Uti Cause A Drop In Blood Pressure
Can a severe UTI cause symptoms of no burning during urination, at end intense pressure / pain at meatus followed by blood. No fever. Mild back pain?
Unlikely: Severe bacterial utis are commonly associated with dysuria (burning). You need to be seen by a urologist to further investigate the bleeding source from your lower urinary tract (i.e. Bladder or prostate origin). I would not wait. You can have any number of problems ranging from prostatitis to bladder cancer. Please seek attention as soon as possible. ...Read more
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force placed on the blood vessels and is comprised of the "systolic" pressure (the top number on a blood pressure meter) which is the peak pressure when the heart is pumping, and the "diastolic" pressure (the bottom number on a blood pressure meter) which is the pressure during the resting phase ...Read more
I currently have a UTI and the nurse said my blood pressure was high, 133 over 95. Could this be related if I have no history of high bp?
Currently on macrobid for uti (e.coli) I've taken 4 of the 10 pills prescribed (I finish Monday morning) but I'm peeing very frequently still. Is this normal? If so, when should it subside? I'm also on diuretics for blood pressure.
Should be better...: It can take a few days for UTI symptoms to clear. But by now you should at least have reduced pain on voiding. If your symptoms are no better at all, contact the doctor now (weekend coming, but someone probably wil be on call, if not your own doctor). Some E. coli strains are resistant to nitrofurantoin; you might need a different antibiotic. Good luck! ...Read more

Wrong antibiotic?: You must not try to treat this yourself. First, not all antibiotics are effective; it depends on the particular bacteria causing the UTI. Second, there are causes of painful urination other than UTI, especially STDs like gonorrhea or chlamydia. Don't take any more antibiotic and see a doctor ASAP. Good luck! ...Read more

Hematuria: Blood in the urine (hematuria) has several common causes. The main reason for concern is that this is how bladder cancer is usually found. But more common causes include bladder infections, kidney stones, and prostate problems in men. Visible blood in the urine, particularly if not associated with pain or burning with urination needs to be evaluated with kidney imaging and cystoscopy (scope). ...Read more
Nitrites, trace blood and leukocytes in urine, smells fishy/ammonia a few weeks after starting dexedrine. Pain and burning in bladder, NEG. UTI. Cause?
Possible UTI: Majority of UTIs are nitrite positive, however UTIs from so called "gram negative" bacteria such as enterococcus, staphylococcus, streptococcus are usually nitrite negative at urinalysis. These bacteria can be seen on microscopy & grown on bacterial culture. My advice is to get your urine cultured & have your primary care health provider prescribe some antibiotics. Good luck. ...Read more
Pain in mid back left side that rotates some frontwards. Started as pressure month ago. Progressively worse. No uti, cystitis, or blood in urine. Causes?
Time to get checkup:
Any pain that persists and gets worse over one month, requires medical check up to find its cause. I assume that you have seen a doctor who is looking into possible causes. Since UTI has been ruled out, I would focus on structures located in the left upper abdomen like Kidney, spleen, paraspinal muscles and spine itself.
If the pain is more than mild, I would consider doing a CT scan of the abdome ...Read more
I have a pressure and need to urinate even though I just went. I've also noticed blood in my urine. Is this a UTI?
UTI or endo? Pain, pressure and blood and tissue in urine. 3 episodes in last 3 weeks. Excruciating pain. No sign of infection
Not sure: By endo pain, I am not sure what you mean--? endometriosis I presume. Not sure what you mean no sign of infection---has someone looked at your urine and done a culture?? If not, then that needs to be done in order to rule out UTI. Your symptoms sound like UTI but endometriosis can cause some of these same symptoms. Make appointment with your health care provider soon to figure this out. ...Read more
I have been having blood pressure for 3 yr at 140/150 by 90 and does disodium hyrogen citrate liquid for UTI infection gud for me?
Not likely: Disodium citrate is the acid salt of citric acid. It is used as an antioxidant in food as well as to improve the effects of other antioxidants. Also used as an acidity regulator and found in products including gelatin, jam, sweets, ice cream, carbonated beverages, milk powder, wine, and processed cheeses, and may help prevent utis, but not proven.

Disodium hydrogen citrate has many uses, primarily in foods, as an antioxidant or a booster for other antioxidants. It can also be used to neutralize acid. In medicine, it is used to ease pain on urination, reduce crystals in the urine, increase antibiotic cell penetration (esp., sulfa drugs), and reduce certain types of stone formation.
If your BP is sensitive to sodium, it may affect your bp. ...Read more

Blood in urine, do men get UTI also? I am seeing blood in my urine and feeling pressure only when I go urinate. The only symptoms I had before I started seeing blood yesterday was discharge of a thick substance showing up on my underware for about a week.
Absolutely: Men can definitely get utis. Symptoms of blood in the urine also require evaluation to rule out diagnoses other than UTI including stones and tumors of the urinary tract. Start by seeing your urologist and getting a urinalysis and urine culture. And a hematuria (blood in urine) workup if blood confirmed in urine. You urologist will direct the diagnosis and treatment following these tests. ...Read more

Could something have 'grown' as a result of that? Still have your ovaries? Bowel habits normal? Was a pelvic exam done? There's a lot to consider. Talk to whomever checked your urine or get a second opinion. Don't freak, just go a step at a time. ...Read more
New symp of uti. Urgency, low fever, pressure. Nitrate and leukocyte neg but micro blood positive. Can urinalysis be neg in very early uti infections?
After 10 days of Cipro (ciprofloxacin) for UTI (bacteria and white blood cells in urine), I still have freq. Urge to urinate and feel pressure below. Residual?
Several things are possible. You could have a case of prostatitis. That requires a longer course of antibiotics for a cure. You could be on the wrong antibiotic. Check to see if a urine culture was done and that you are on the proper antibiotic.
If you are not emptying your bladder, you could predispose yourself to a bladder infection and it could be more difficult to clear the infection. ...Read more
