Hello, I've had visible blood in my urine for a week now. Went to ER the day after it started and had bloodwork (all ok) urine analysis (positive for blood, protein and white blood cells) and ultra sound (large kidney stone in left kidney). The doctor said the kidney stone wasn't doing anything though and probably wasn't the cause of the blood. I have no pain to speak of... Maybe the odd twinge here and there but nothing that would stand out if it weren't for the blood in my urine. Doctor sent me home with antibiotics as he suspected the blood was caused by a particular bacteria and still waiting on results of urine culture. Been taking the antibiotic now for 7 days, blood had stopped a few days ago but started again yesterday (along with a yeast infection and constant diarrhea from the antibiotics...sorry TMI). I'm trying to drink lots of water which dilutes the urine and makes it look clear but if I don't, the blood is visible. I'm seriously freaking out right now about
what the heck is wrong with me! I'm 36 years old, female, I have Crohn's disease (in remission) but no other health problems. No family history of bladder or kidney issues. This has never happened to me before so it's totally new and scaring the heck out of me. Could it be the kidney stone even though I don't have any real pain and the doctor said he didn't think so? I have a follow up appointment with my GP next week but the waiting and not knowing is killing me. I just keep thinking it's cancer
Thanks for reading!
