Appendicitis symptoms blood in urine

Common Questions and Answers about Appendicitis symptoms blood in urine


Avatar m tn This is correlated with imaging studies and blood tests. The pain in appendicitis generally starts around the umbilicus and moves to the lower right quadrant of the abdomen. Now you can consult a general surgeon or a gastroenterologist for this problem. As we do not maintain a directory of doctors we may not be able to help you. You can talk to your insurance agents they may be able to direct you appropriately. Regards.
Avatar n tn I have been to the doctor numerous times in the past 10 years and was diagnosed with IBS. Despite having been diagnosed with IBS, none of the medication has ever relieved any of the symptoms. Last Sunday I had a bout of the sharp pains on my right side (7 out of 10) and lost my appetite. I thought it'd be best to try and sleep it off. The next day, the stabbing pains had been replaced with a dull, intermittent (from every three minutes to every four hours) pain.
Avatar f tn Hello, Blood in the urine can present in one of two ways: gross hematuria (blood that you can see in the urine), and microscopic hematuria (blood that is only seen when the urine is examined under a microscope). Both types can have serious causes. The various conditions associated with blood in urine are kidney disorders,urinary disorders(urethra,ureters and urinary bladder) and prostate esp prostatitis in males.
Avatar f tn Hi there, The common symptoms of acute appendicitis are pain in right lower quadrant, nausea, vomiting and loss of appetite. The pain may be diffuse and poorly localized to start with. As the inflammation spreads in the peritoneum the pain can be localized clearly to one small area. In UTI there is abdominal pain, increased urine frequency or burning urination. The diagnosis of your ailment begins with a thorough history and physical examination.
471949 tn?1236907626 Hi-I was in the ER Tuesday for several hours with severe lower right stomach pain, nausea, low-grade fever & diarhea. I thought it was my appendix. They did blood tests, urine tests and a CT scan. Doc said it was not my appendix, but he thought it was diverticulitis. Doc gave me some meds, including antibiotics, and sent me home with no further instructions (I'm a veteran, so I was at a VA hospital). The meds made me sicker. I'm still having the lower right side pain.
148354 tn?1211237506 When I got there they immediately started telling me that it was probably appendicitis but they needed to do some testing. They did a CT, full blood work,Ultrasound, urine work-up and gave me pain meds through an IV. The doc said that the ultrasound showed that I had a uterun fibroid but that it was very small and that it would not be causing that much pain. She gave me the option of staying a day or two for pain control.
Avatar m tn Once last Christmas I went to the ER with similar symptoms (without the fever) for fear of having this, and they dismissed me (after blood tests, urine test and X-rays), luckily. I know that by ruminating I'm making the symptoms worse and can't really tell if the pain is spontaneous or caused by anxiety. I have a constant sense of tachychardia (mild), probably due to fever.
Avatar f tn While she said I was a classic case of any one illness, she said she had been fooled by appendicitis before. She had me do a blood test, urine test, and a CT scan with contrast. White blood cell count was on the high end of the normal range. CT scan showed a normal appendix, as well as a normal everything else. She told me it was probably just an IBS flare up. (I've been diagnosed with IBS for almost 10 years now, but have been suffering most of my life.
405614 tn?1329147714 Sent me to the lab for another CBC and Vitamin D level blood draw, had me make a next available appointment, and said that if my symptoms don't resolve in the next few days, we'll consider repeating the CT scan, to see if anything more developed. Oddly enough, my face flushed bright red while I was there, and when I asked if she could see it, my PCP said "ah, hot flash, huh?" More fun. So, I'm home, worn out.
Avatar m tn So they did the CT scan, and they couldn't find one thing wrong with my appendix. Altogether, they did blood tests, urine test, tests on my kidney, gull bladder, ovaries, even a chest x-ray because I had pain in my lower ribs. They did so many tests that I can't even remember them all. They thought that perhaps it could be IBS, but I didn't have all of the symptoms for it, so that was very unlikely. So they basically thought that it was all in my head.
Avatar n tn He said that they get negative results in blood and urine until about the 4th month before it starts to show positive. That kinda gave me some hope there. So, I guess as long as we don't see no blood whatsoever, that's a positive sign in itself that pregnancy is a possibility!! Let's keep the faith yall!
Avatar f tn In the meantime, the aching and bloating had gone away for the most part, but after having the ultrasound done the aching returned, and now for the past few days I was noticing some blood that seemed to be coming from the vagina, though am not certain. It wasn't in the urine, I don't think. It was very faint, just tinges, but then I had two episodes where there was a fair bit of blood (enough to coat the toilet paper...sort of like a paper cut).
Avatar f tn To be pregnant, you must have the hormones to grow a fetus and the blood test (and urine test checks for this hormone). I'm guessing the gastroenterologist will have good answers for you. good luck dear and let us know how it goes.
Avatar f tn The pain continued. Fecal sample was negative for parasites. His doctor took urine, blood, and had a CT scan performed yesterday. The WBC was "slightly elevated", as it was a year ago, and lymph nodes in his abdomen were slightly enlarged. His abdomen was tender to pressure in one location yesterday. No evidence of tumors, IBC and diverticulitis were ruled out. Dr. stated it was probably a viral infection and he should have full relief within two weeks of the onset.
4848134 tn?1360123266 You are probably losing blood in stool which you cannot see. So an occult blood test in stool should be done. The blood which you can see in your stool is probably due to hemorrhoids. However, you need to ask doctor about this. The low albumin could be due to a low protein diet. Low blood urea nitrogen is generally not a cause for concern. It may at times be seen in liver disorders, mal nutrition or in over hydration. Low protein diet is another factor.
Avatar n tn It was advised to get another urine in 1-2 weeks and blookwork in 3 months. They also found blood in the urine. Im a bit concerned...and would like some clarity on what this tests are and mean. A better generalization. Thanks.

I know that by ruminating I'm making the symptoms worse and can't really tell if the pain is spontaneous or caused by anxiety. I have a constant sense of tachychardia (mild), probably due to fever. Additional info: - There's a gastroenteritis virus going round these days (at least in Athens,Greece, where I live).
Avatar n tn My endo said that if my symptoms don't improve within two weeks we'd look into my hyperthyroid symptoms more to see if something else was going on (I'm on methimazole and atenolol). I have a lot of symptoms that coincide with pheochromocytoma, however, my b/p is 80/60 on the atenolol, and the only headaches I get are the everyday headaches. I had an abdominal CT scan about a year ago that was negative for appendicitis.
Avatar f tn So mention more symptoms and reasons for undergoing such blood test.The immediate care taken can only be advised if you give more details, to be specific.
Avatar n tn It could be pressure on the bladder from the adjacent organs or inability of the bladder to hold so much urine. Also excess intake of water could be the cause. .Do you have any other symptoms like blood in the urine, frequency, urgency etc? It is advised to get a MRI of the abdomen, along with voiding cystourethrogram. Consult a urologist with reports. Take care.
Avatar f tn im still waiting for my blood results , once i have the blood result i will then see a Gastroenterology... in the mean time im so nervous that its cancer or something bad.. has anyone gone thru something like this.. if so please share..
Avatar f tn I saw my primary care doctor a week after the pain started. I had urine, blood test, x ray, and was ordered a ct scan the same day. Nurse operating radiology ordered wrong ct, so i had a pelvic ct. Everything appeared normal. Appendix and some other digestive organs did not appear, but the rest of the scan came back normal. Urine and blood test came back normal. I was going to be referred to a gastroenterologist.
Avatar n tn Doctor did bloodwork for liver functions Hepatitis, and ordered a CT scan (looking for appendicitis). He also collected a urine sample, and ordered a few stool samples--if I remember, he was looking for Shigella and Giardia. All tests were negative, but my AST/ALT counts were slightly elevated. He said that the whole thing might have been viral. A few weeks later, the abdominal pain had gone, and there was no more diarrhea.
Avatar n tn The doctor said that if it was appendicitis I would already know it was. She had a urine sample done which came back with a trace amount of white blood cells in it, she told me that male urine shouldn't have any and she sent it to check for Urinary Tract Infection. But from what I've read it doesn't seem a URI is that painful to the touch and I don't many of the usual symptoms with it. She also suggested STDS, but I highly doubt these.
Avatar m tn In addition, blood may be present in the stool as a result of ongoing damage to the intestinal lining. Similar symptoms can occur with irritable bowel syndrome; however, since it is not an inflammatory condition and the lining of the intestine remains intact, blood in the stool is rare with this condition. When associated with a gastrointestinal infection, mucus in the stool often accompanies diarrhea and abdominal cramping. You may also have blood in the stool and a fever.
148354 tn?1211237506 forgot to add this mimics appendicitis,I know with ibs my symptoms would come and go,but with ovarian cancer dont symptoms gradually get worse and more painful? is it possible to be in early stage and dr's havent found it? im getting scared!
Avatar n tn one month. This follows a couple of months of vague UTI symptoms, three visits to Urologists, negative urine tests, and courses of CIPRO and Doxy(suspected prostatitis), and Bactrim (ultrasound confirmed epidydymitis). During these bouts I have had some penile tip pain, and this continued dull pain in my right abdomen, and some post void dribble. This also follows some odd back pain back in December, last year.
Avatar n tn Hello, looking for some assistance in determining the cause of my symptoms. I'm overall a very healthy female, age 26. I am a 14 year read meat/pork vegetarian and excercise 4 times a week. I avoid high fat foods and do not smoke. For the past year and 3 months, I have had a sharp pain in my lower right abdomen right by my hip bone.
Avatar n tn I have all those symptoms and more, and have microscopic blood in urine, but no bacteria, so it's not an infection, but could be many different things, just make sure you do get in w/a doctor, maybe even try a reg. physician first to get in sooner and rule out infection or get meds for it! In the mean time you could take uristat or azo to relieve some pain, that's all they've told me to do for now! Good luck!
Avatar f tn This is because Lyme bacteria are sparse and may not be in the sample tested. Antigen detection tests look for a unique Lyme protein in fluid (e.g. blood, urine, joint fluid). Sometimes people whose indirect tests are negative are positive on this test. Recommended labs CALDA recommends that you use a CLIA- and Medicare-approved lab that specializes in testing for tickborne diseases and reports all bands on the western blot.
