I'm pretty familiar with blood in my stool, but having it in my urine is kind of new. At my mom's insistence, I saw my internist's PA on Monday. Urinalysis showed protein and bilirubin, so I'm taking Cipro for what appears to be a routine UTI. PA said that I should have started feeling better almost immediately, but I finish the antibiotics tomorrow -- the blood disappeared, only to pop back up tonight. It's a lot more than it was before I started the antibiotics. I haven't had a fever, but have had urgency, pressure, and right-sided back pain (which is probably due to sleeping in a weird position).

Has this happened to anyone else? I'm wondering if it's not a UTI, rather a side effect of my medications, but I'm not finding anything to really back that up. Should I mention it to my evil GI tomorrow?

Sounds like the UTI has spread to your kidney (thus the back pain). Maybe the antibiotic wasn't strong enough and you need to be put on one stronger. I had the same happen once, and the back pain only gets worse if not treated. Good luck!
