long story...never got to see rheumy...still have chills and for the last two weeks I have had blood in my urine. It started red but is much lighter now, looking almost normal. The two hemotologists I have seen have dismissed the slightly enlarged lymph node and slightly enlarged spleen and slightly elevated sed rate and c-rp as being too close to normal to worry about. I know I need to see another doc,but the other doctors have me convinced that everything is on the border line between normal and enlarged, so I shouldn't worry about it

(((( Alan )))) only you know your body and know when you should see a doctor. It probably wouldn't hurt to get another doctors opinion. Take care and let us know how you are doing.

Hi Alan,
   Did the doctor do a urinalysis to see if you have a kidney infection or ct to see if you have a stone? I agree with Stacie about getting another opinion. You shouldn't have blood in your urine for no reason. Please take care and keep us updated.
