Plenty: Having a kidney stone can be painful. However having meat with abdominal pain could be due to a stomach or intestinal issue. Without any history or physical exam we will not be able to identify the exact cause. It will therefore be best to have you see your doctor or if you are in severe pain to go to the emergency room as soon as possible. Good luck ...Read more

Sounds like stone: It sounds like a kidney stone. I would talk to your doctor if you are concerned. If they did an ultrasound or CT scan that would show up any tumor or other problem. If those studies have already been done then you can relax. In someone your age a kidney stone and infection are the most common causes for blood in the urine. Drink lots of water.

Blood in urine: Kidney stones can cause plenty of problems and can cause some blood in the urine. But bright red blood in the urine is a possible sign of something worse, such as bladder cancer. If you are unable to get in to see a urologist, you should consider going to an E.R. Btw, ultrasound is terrible at diagnosing kidney stones. You need a ct-urogram and cystoscopy. ...Read more

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

Sonogram or CT scan: Will confirm presence of kidney or gallstones. Sonography is probably better for identifying gall stones, is free of radiation ; is quite good at idtifying kidneys and presence or absence of urinary obstruction. Ct best for kidney stones. Blood cells in urine strongly suggest kidney stone, but imaging is required for diagnosis. Symptoms could also suggest kidney infection. ?Urine culture performed. ...Read more
