Avatar n tn I have urine that feels sensitive after urinating and sometimes at random various times I feel tingling in the urethra up into the bladder. My urine smells kind of acidic. I have diffficulty with constipation from IBS and that makes the symptoms worse when it occurs. It doesnt burn but feels sensitive or different when urinating. I'm a 25 year old female.
358971 tn?1330892575 I went to the doc last night b/c yesterday when I peed it hurt like hell and twice when I went pee I had light red/watery blood on the tissue. That has never happened so I was worried it was kidney stones...especially since 10 days ago I couldn't even pee. Doc said it was a UTI and also did a pregnancy test....which came back negative. I thought it was strange b/c they did the PT at the same time as the UTI test and I had to wait an extra 10 minutes.
560857 tn?1216132922 I am not lactating. I stopped breast beeding when he was 1 month old. I do have kidney stones. Would that be the cause? Like I said before, it doesn't burn to pee just itches a little and smell's.
Avatar f tn Here they tested blood and urine and said no infection could be found but could be kidney stones and would send me for ultra sound to check. They put me on fluids and a drip of paracetamol over night. the next morning i woke up to very swollen hands and face but was told it wasn't bad enough to consider a concern and was forgotten about.
Avatar n tn I don't think it could be a kidney infection because my urine looks and smells fine. I drink water constantly and stay away from soft drinks and dark liquids that cause kidney stones, so I'm kinda confused. Does anyone have any ideas?
Avatar f tn When I got home I urinated on a stick again and it was + for trace blood in urine. I went to urgent care where they got a urine specimen(I was beginning to have symptoms of UTI then). They did a fast strep and mono test, both negative. A urine culture came back several days later negative as well. The urgent care doc treated me for a Kidney infection with Cipro. 72 hours after starting Cipro it was like I had an epiphany, I thought Oh my gosh, I feel OK.
Avatar n tn Intake of antibiotics, any kidney disease; inflammation of the kidney, bladder infection can cause blood in urine. A complete history, laboratory and imaging studies may help in determining the cause of your symptoms. Treatment will be specific based on the cause. Schedule an appointment with a nephrologist.Do keep me posted. Take care and regards!

7165836 tn?1388807285 The urine specimens in your picture show that you need to drink more water. Because I have a history of kidney stones, I monitor my own urine and seek medical help if I find any abnormalities on the urine sticks as well as physical problems. These can be purchased quite cheaply over the internet. You cannot buy these from the chemist. I buy the 100 of the10 reagent strips, but you can purchase strips that can show up less that 10 problems and a lesser quantity.
Avatar m tn It has been getting constantly worse and now I have headaches occasionally and the bad taste in my mouth is there ALL the time, wife says my breath smells bad/weird sometimes with it, its really hard to explain the taste its just very unusual and feels like sometimes its coming from the roof of my mouth. It dont go away no matter how much I brush my teeth.
Avatar n tn I have seen my doctor many times who just prescribes antibiotics. Also my urine smells like it's been sitting for a month (stale and high odor) when its just came out of me. Please help!!!
661200 tn?1225486613 Even worse, there isn't a darn thing to do for kidney failure other than treat the symptoms as best you can. Once kidney cells are destroyed, they cannot regenerate like other organs such as the liver can. When kidney failure reaches the last stages, you will notice a marked increase in nausea and vomiting and probably urinary accidents as well. The nausea is from the toxins remaining in the bloodstream that the kidneys can no longer filter out.
1963554 tn?1325451090 He has a tumor within his bladder and his urine cannot pass thru which goes into his kidney and damages it. When we had Shaggy checked out in May our vet said that it's UTI...because I mentioned to him that he'd pee and then go to other spots and nothing comes out. So he was given anti-biotics. This went on for several months. Then we finally took an x-ray and couldn't really see much, except there were little calculi and that his left kidney was enlarged...
2042830 tn?1333869167 I have no insurance and went to the ER this because my left side below my rid cage has a sharp side and lower back were my kidney is I am in so much pain... I have this really bad odder on my tongue, it smells like copper or bowl odder. I have had this same odder when I had endometriosis this pass year off and on..... I have regular bowl moments that are normal color...
Avatar m tn I haven’t been to the doctor about it as I can’t get a sample without holding a glass or a bottle until it happens again and since it doesn’t cause symptoms they wouldn’t do anything anyway. To me, kidney stones seem unlikely as I don’t get pain before it happens and any images online are the wrong colour and consistency. Other information: It’s definitely coming from above the prostate. How do I know? Well, I masturbated once to see if that would clear the tubes.
4879855 tn?1360443797 Having a cloudy urine is nevery a good sign. And if it smells of kidneys or liver that definitely is a kidney infection that you have, even possibility of kidney stones. Get it examined asap. Best wishes.
Avatar n tn I had mine inserted this past Feb. I just started having the exact same symptoms. I am going to take a hpt. Let me know if you find out whats causing your problems.

Avatar n tn Simple question here, has anyone ever had a negative blood test and negative urine test and went on with their daily routine and a month or so later found out you were in fact pregnant while having ultrasound done. If this has happened to anyone or perhaps someone you know, please respond, I'd appreciate the information. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I have been to a GYN, Urologists, primary care physicians, you name it I have seen them. I have had kidney stones removed, laproscopic surgery (nothing abnormal) and a cystopy (spelling). I was actually hoping that the Lap would indicate that they had found something wrong so they could fix it. My GYN seems to think our next step is to remove the uterus, I just don't see how this can help.
10255089 tn?1408845320 You may find sediment may settle or you may see little grains that settle to the bottom, this could be kidney stones breaking up. Kidney stones can be any size and from as small as a grain of sand. Let me know how you get on. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Avatar f tn My symptoms just disappeared after 2 days of this. My urine smells bad of ammonia for months now. Just not sure if it's a UTI or what. I had no pain other than burning.
Avatar m tn You are drinking a lot of liquid so that makes your urine clear. What is your first urine like in the morning? Bad breath can be sinuses, infection, or tonsil stones. Have you seen a dentist? Muscle twitches and fatigue can be due to stress as well as organic issues, as can weight loss/apetite loss and palpitations. How are you feeling mentally? Many of your symptoms could be stress related. Have you ever had depression?
Avatar f tn I have a history of kidney stones going back 4 years now and since then I have microscopic blood in my urine. Saw a Urologist about it, he did urine tests also did cystoscopy and I even had xray and ct scan of my bladder and kidneys. Nothing is found ever. But why do I have the urge to go like a UTI? I mentioned is it overactive bladder, I am told no, no one ever brings up cystitis, which from what I have read, this sounds like it.
Avatar n tn The problem is sometimes those pregnancy symptoms are an awful lot like period symptoms (it's a bummer that nature works that way). But either way, I started having sore breasts and slight nausea within about a week or so after my IUI. The IUI worked and I did get pregnant... so although everyone is different, the symptoms started rather early for me. We'll cross our fingers for you and hopefully you'll have some good news in a week or so!
1139665 tn?1382714550 I did have a stone years ago that passed on it's own but i had ended up with a bladder infection because of it. What are the symptoms of a stone that is doing damage to the kidney? Or kidney failure? Also if one kidney fails does the other always follow? Would i be in more pain if it were a stone or maybe an infection? It's usually just a dull ache but sometimes i do get little shooting pains. Seems to be worse when i lift something heavy or bend down.
Avatar f tn smells strongly - this could indicate that you do have a infection in the urinary tract. Having kidney stones can also give you these symptoms. As you have put on weight and feel cold, this may be a thyroid problem. Because you did have cancer, it is more important to get checked out to ensure that this has not returned. Make an urgent appointment to get seen my a doctor. Consider going to the ER if your symptoms do not improve.
Avatar m tn I am not too sure if CT scans would pick up on any digestive tract problems, but loki5335 says it didn't. Again I do not know whether a CT scan would pick up on kidney stones. I have had kidney stones, depending on the type of stone (there are 4 different types) and the size sometimes it can show up on xray or ultrasound.
Avatar n tn i did have a period when i was 22 and working a stressful job where i passed what i believe to be kidney/bladder stones. they were something, it would be painful as all get out to pee, then a small piece of something would come out with a stringy tail on it, and id be fine me and my girl have been together for over a year and a half. i cheated on her a couple times, most recently about 10 months ago. i feel i should have noticed something by now if anything.
12773 tn?1328916786 I started experiencing back pain about a week ago, and went to the dr on Friday, she didnt feel it was my kidneys, but did a urinalysis and said there was no infection, urine was clear. but sent it off anyway, and will get back to me, one thing I didnt mention to her was the smell of Ammonia I had started smelling the day before. Its not on my skin, or anything, I do bathe everyday and use soap. But just in my nose.
