Check your kidneys: You may have a kidney infection or other serious kidney problem, see your primary care doctor right away.

Possible causes of low back pain, micro blood in urine in healthy, 32 y/o non-smoking woman? Had CT of kidnys and it was normal. Meds for inf not work.

Hematuria: Your hematuria (h) does not seem to be due to a lesion in your kidneys. Do you have a urinary tract infection (uti)? Your statement, "meds for not not work work", implies that you may have one. If you have no uti, you may need a cystoscopy to see if your bladder is the source of your h. A urologist can do this test. If negative, you may have a glomerulonephritis causing your h, see a nephrologist. ...Read more

I was told that I have mod. Blood in urine but no UTI, what can be an issue? I am having low back pain (pinching) & unusual heart palpitations.

Micro-hematuria: Microscopic hematuria is fairly common and often from a benign familial tendency. Unfortunately, blood in the urine is also often the only sign one gets from some conditions that need to be discovered, like bladder or kidney cancer or kidney stones. See a urologist for workup. It likely will involve an office cystoscopic exam and upper urinary tract imaging. ...Read more

Cat scan shows kidney stones in both kidneys. Largest 10mm right side. Had on and off dull low back pain and blood in urine. Can they cause damage?

Cat scan shows kidney stones in both kidneys. Largest 10mm right side. Had on and off dull low back pain and blood in urine. Can they cause damage?

Yes: If the kidney stone blocks the flow of urine from the kidney, you can get permanent kidney damage, but that can take weeks to happen and is associated with severe pain. Also, kidney stones can become infected from pyelonephritis (kidney infection - not a typical urinary tract infection (uti)) and be challenging to treat. Please see your health care provider and consider a referral to urology. ...Read more

Having low back pain on one side, went to dr, urine test + for blood & high protein levels, CT scan for stones neg. Father died at 46 of renal ca.

See details.: The ct scan would have shown evidence of a renal cell carcinoma so that is ruled out. The high protein is indicative of significant kidney inflammation. I would suggest seeing a nephrologist (kidney specialist) for an opinion. ...Read more

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?

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?

See answer: Though symptoms and u/a may be suggestive, one cannot reliably make the diagnosis of a kidney stone without some type of an imaging study (kub, ultrasound, ct) with a non-contrast ct scan being the most accurate and reliable imaging study to determine the presence, location, and size approximation of a stone as well as to potentially rule out other causes of pain and hematuria. ...Read more

I'm having horrible lower back pain and painful urination along with blood in my urine. Am I passing kidney stones or do you think it's a UTI?

UTI vs kidney stones: Actually, it's not uncommon to have both urinary tract infection & kidney stone. We usually think of the stone as the source of infection. Both infections & stones can cause pain & bloody urine. Fever would tip scale towards UTI. Best to see your Family Doc for diagnosis & treatment. ...Read more

Get urinalysis: It is very hard to say if your urine is abnormal just by its appearance. Debris and bubbles could be protein, mucus, blood in urine or an infection. It is best to get a urine dipstick test to check for any of the above. If you have a fever with your lower back pain or symptoms of difficulty or painful urination, you could have a bladder or kidney infection and should see a doctor ...Read more

Finding small amounts of sediment in urine, no blood/odor. Dipped myself which shows mod wbc. Horrible lower back pain (endometriosis). Any thoughts?

Finding small amounts of sediment in urine, no blood/odor. Dipped myself which shows mod wbc. Horrible lower back pain (endometriosis). Any thoughts?

Could be UTI: I think it definitely could be a urinary tract infection but that should be checked out. Urinary sediment is certainly not normal which could signal other malfunctions going on and not just an infectious process. I recommend getting a urine sample looked at and possibly cultured, depending on what your doctor would like. Would get the sediment looked at microscopically. ...Read more

I went to doc with lower back pain and they ordered a urine test and found blood. They want to do a CT scan but the pain is gone do I still need it?

Yes: Though the most common thing that the public associates with blood in urine and back pain is kidney stones, there are other possibilities, some of which are major medical concerns. If you have ever been a smoker, there is the possibility of either kidney cancer, bladder cancer or retained stones that are asymptomatic. Kidney cysts can also cause this, and sometimes require surgery. Yes to CT scan. ...Read more
