Radiating leg pain: When a nerve is "pinched" in the lower back, the pain would radiate along that nerve's path, most of the times to the toes. This can happen if a disc is damaged in the lower spine. Dark urine is not related to these symptoms but a sign of dehydration. Drink more water for sure. Avoid prolonged sitting, bending, heavy lifting etc to give the disc a chance to heal. ...Read more

Could be UTI: The symptoms you have are consistent with a urinary tract infection. The fact that your back hurts implies that it may have begun to spread into the kidney. If you develop nausea and vomiting, the kidney is certainly involved. Dramatically increase fluids to the point your urine is clear. Drink apple or cranberry juice to acidify the urine. If sx don't improve, or fever, need to see doc. ...Read more

Right lower back pain (sometimes left), pelvic pain, sometimes rib pain. No pain during urinating. Sometimes urine dark than normal. Could this be uti?

Atypical for UTI: Your pain seems to localize every except for the bladder. For this reason, I am going to suppose that this is not related to a uti. It could be bowel related.

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.
