I have frequency, urgency syndrome already. Lately my back hurts bad and there is some blood in my urine. Could this be related or from something else?

Urinary Tract Infxn: Thank you for asking this important question. Your symptoms are very common and are associated with a urinary tract infection (or UTI). These are easily diagnosed with a urinalysis and confirmed with a urine culture. Based on those results, you may be prescribed antibiotics, advised further work-up, or referred to a specialist. See your doctor ASAP as these symptoms can progressively become worse. ...Read more

I have blood in my urine and sudden urgency to pee. I can not even make to the bathroom at times. Also some pain in my flanks not so much when I pee.?

Multiple causes: Visible blood in the urine, along with urgency to urinate can have multiple causes, including infection or other inflammatory bladder condition, bladder or urethral stone, or tumor/cancer. Cancer is of particular concern if you are over 40 and or a smoker. Infection would be the most common. Cause. Best to have this evaluated promptly. ...Read more

Can ibs even mild cause body fatigue? Compl normal blood results but on and off fatigue and only other symptom is bm urgency

IBS signs/symptoms?: The GI tract has a very limited # of symptoms to signal its distress--nausea/vomiting, diarrhea/constipation, bloating, pain, fullness, bleeding, etc. As you know, many of these characterize ibs, but are also seen with inflammatory, infectious, ischemic, malabsorptive, and functional disorders. Directed lab work, imaging, biopsies, stool studies are appropriate in excluding non-ibs pathology. ...Read more

Soft stools that come out in 1 piece or a few smaller pieces, look like number 4 on stool chart, sometimes fecal urgency, no blood, no pain, several years now, go avg 3 times a day. 22 yr old male?

Soft stools that come out in 1 piece or a few smaller pieces, look like number 4 on stool chart, sometimes fecal urgency, no blood, no pain, several years now, go avg 3 times a day. 22 yr old male?

Not a big problem: Most people have been on antibiotics within tue past 2 or 3 years and don't have the optimal balance of "friendly" bacteria in their intestines. Sometimes this can cause mild to moderate GI distress, and sometimes more significant symptoms. A good probiotic, kambucha, or other foods that restore balance in friendly bacteria is very important. ...Read more

Right flank pain x3 days. Severe last night but a little better today. No urine problms, such as odor, freq, urgency, blood etc, but diarrhea today?

Flank pain: If infection is not the concern (e.g. absence of fever/chills), I suspect a stone. You better have it evaluated sooner before it becomes obstructing your urine canal if that's the case. You physician may end up ordering some basic blood work like kidney function, urine tests and if concerning enough, and ultrasound/CT scan of the kidneys (abdomen and pelvis). Diarrhea can be from the adjacent. .. ...Read more

See urologist: You may have interstitial cystitis which is not relieved by antibiotics. If an infection is still suspected, a PCR assay for bacterial DNA would be efficient in detecting the cause for the infection. Your best bet is to consult an urologist. ...Read more

1 week ago had urinalysis for annual physical. Today I got a call that I have an undiagnosed UTI. Results- trace of blood & small leukocyte esterese. No burning or urgency to pee. Was given Cipro 250mg 2x/day for 3 days. Accurate diagnosis?

UTI? STD?: Without ymptoms, usually treatment would not be given until additional testing confirmed the diagnosis. Asymptomatic UTIs are not rare, and the diagnosis probably is correct. However, other things can cause similar urinalysis findings, especially STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomnonas) -- and none of these is reliably treated with ciprofloxacin. Check with doc ASAP esp. If at poss. STD risk. ...Read more

Crp result 10.2 blood mucus in stool. Loose frequent stools up to 10 times a day. I have definite bowel cancer? Urgency to go. Pains in stomach bad.

Await test results: Obviously, you are seeing a doctor about this. While your described symptoms MAY be due to cancer, that's not the first diagnosis that leaps to my mind. Inflammatory bowel disease is. But no online doc can substitute for one who actually examines you. Be prayerful and patient. You'll know soon. Good luck. ...Read more

D&C 2 wks ago have low back pain, tender abdomen, urgency urinating. Dipstick came back positive low white blood cells, could it be PID or just UTI?

Sounds like bladder: It sounds like a bladder infection. PID is not that common after a routine D and C unless STDs such as gonorrhea and chlamydia were present and untreated before the surgery. If you had a urine dip test done then it seems you have seen a doctor for evaluation. Schedule follow up with that doctor for clarification on your diagnosis and treatment ...Read more

Should I get blood work? Today my boyfriend got told he has hepatitis b. I have a doctor's appointment for myself in 2 months. Should I get we before.

Yes, if possible: It seems silly to feel anxious about this for two months. Do it and feel either relieved or take appropriate action. Also - do whatever is recommended to prevent future risk. I'm glad he was caring enough to tell you even if it was a bit late - good luck to both of you. ...Read more
