Avatar f tn I have had blood in my urine for the past few days. My Primary Dr. has ordered an urine culture & placed me on antibiotics. The urine speciman was taken prior to starting the antibiotics and came back as "no growth in 24 hours". I have had pain on the right side of my back for about a week however it is not in the center of my back but closer to the side.
Avatar f tn I have been on 5 mg of Coumadin/Warfarin for at least 10 years. My INR is almost always in the target range 2.0 to 3.0. I never see any blood in urine, or elsewhere. I think when I "nick" myself with a sharp implement, I bleed more than I used to, but never a problem stopping. I believe blood in the urine is one of the "no-no" symptoms and should be addressed.
Avatar n tn As of now I have had 2 occurances of gross hemuturia. Which is otherwise known as blood in urine. I am unsure as to how to proceed. Should I continue the coumadin and run the risk of bleeding? Or stop coumadin and run the risk of clotting? (previously I was taken off of coumadin placed on asprin and developed another clot) Please advise! Next time it may be my brain that bleeds!
Avatar n tn My girlfriend is currently on Warfarin to thin out her blood and because of this, she isn't on any birth control. Her period stopped on the 8th February and since then we have had regular sex and under a week ago she has mentioned to me daily about the following things she has experienced.
Avatar n tn My husband has had blood in his urine for 7 months now, since January 2008 he has had catscans (3), ultrasounds (1), cystoscopys (6), etc. and they cannot find where this blood is coming from. He recently had a surgery to fix his varicolceles in both testicles.

Avatar m tn Hello, Flagyl causes darkened urine in some users and the pigment which is probably responsible for this phenomenon has not been positively identified; it is almost certainly a metabolite of metronidazole and seems to have no clinical significance. Other than that consumption of certain foods like beet,blackberry ,rhubarb and senna can cause orange urine. Certain other medicines like rifampin (Rifadin); the blood thinner warfarin (Coumadin); phenazopyridine (Pyridium) also cause orange urine.
Avatar n tn Taking warfarin can increase your chances of bleeding either internally where you cannot see or from nose, ear, in stool or in urine. However, if there is a need and you are not taking it, it can increase your chances of blood clots. Both are equally dangerous. So if you are reluctant to take warfarin, you should go for the international normalized ratio (INR) test. Normally patients on blood thinners are kept at an INR of 2.0 to 3.0.
Avatar f tn For instance, the dyes used in some sugary cereals can show up in kids' urine. In some cases, though, changes in urine color may be caused by certain health problems.

The presence of red blood cells is the main reason urine turns red.
Avatar n tn in the last two weeks i have had three blood vessels just pop in my fingers. i was not doing anything out of the ordinary. what could be causing this? should there be a cause for concern?
Avatar f tn It's not unusual for patients with mystery conditions to hear "it's only all in your head". So ironically, it's lucky for you that you have some blood test results which are way out of range because that is clear evidence that something is really wrong. E.g., neutrophils (absolute polymorphonuclear neutrophils) typically go high to fight bacteria or fungus. Very rarely, a person can have a leukemia of neutrophils. Or it could possibly be the immune system going wacky.
Avatar n tn Coumadin (generic name Warfarin) is a anticoagulant (blood thinner) that is used for a variety of conditions. Common reasons for coumadin use are in atrial fibrillation to reduce the risk of stroke, in persons with clotting disorders, in persons with mechanical heart valves, and sometimes in people with severe heart failure. The usual dosage is somewhere between 1 and 15 mg a day.
Avatar n tn The reasons are several. First, it is very unlikely the blood was his. In the vast majority of instances in which blood appears after vaginal sexual contact, the woman's cervix or vagina is the source. As you will appreciate, it is difficult to check internally by self examination. And absence of any bleeding source on his fingers also suggests the blood wasn't his. Second, fingering has never been known to transmit HIV and you aren't likely to be the first case.
Avatar f tn I personally would hold one and a half doses and test again in a week. In other words, I would not take any coumadin at the time of my next scheduled dose, and I would take a half dose at the dosing time after that. For more information about warfarin management, see www.warfarinfo.com. I will also try to find the link to an American Family Physician journal article about warfarin management that tells you what dosage adjustments to make, in order to achieve a given INR.
Avatar f tn plasma free metanephrines, a fasting blood test for the inactive metabolites of the catecholamines, norepinephrine and epinephrine (nor-adrenaline and adrenaline) shortly after having one of your spikes in blood pressure episodes With your spikes in blood pressure, rapid heart rate and profuse sweating, they should have run a test such as this reportedly very accurate one to rule out (or else set the doctors on the track of) a pheochromocytoma.
Avatar n tn My concern was this was the sound of blood travelling to my head. In which case the artery is constricted the flow, causing backup -- and the 'fizzing' sound comes when the pressure build enough to push the blood through. Does anyone share this concern?
1042487 tn?1275283499 You must have flushed most of the doses in the toilet in your urine. Anyway you are right about Warfarin and you should never stop taking it and my advices on any other herbal remedies cannot be considered and Warfarin interacts with so many medication including the natural one's that it is extremely difficult to propose you anything.
Avatar n tn All my standard blood tests from about 5 years back to the present showed a slightly high calcium level in my blood - 10.5 and 10.7, etc. Finally, I had a doctor that recommended I get my parathyroid hormone tested. Turns out that it was about double what it should be. I was sent to an endocrinologist who knew more about it, but wanted me to take more and more Vitamin D, since that was low, to see if this would correct the calcium level in my blood.

233622 tn?1279338505 Studies with radiolabeled drug have demonstrated that up to 92% of the orally administered dose is recov-ered in urine. Very little warfarin is excreted unchanged in urine. Urinary excretion is in the form of metabolites. " I think one of these types is the oral meds and the other is injectinon, but I'm not sure which is which. Perhaps Q will be by and can answer this one. Is you mom experiencing problems? If so, I would call her doctor and see if she needs medical help.
Avatar f tn After leaving hospital on 5th Jan with the doctors permission I was allowed to fly on 10th Jan to stay with my friend in Mallorca as long as I had my INR checked on 16th Jan My first visit to hospital in Spain was problematic because I had woken up that morning with bad cystitus and was peeing blood, when I told the Spanish doctor this he took me off the Warfarin and gave me 6 days of Clexane injections plus some antibiotics for the Cystitus.
Avatar m tn Hi.I was finding blood in my urine 2 months after and overdose of warfarin. The warfarin was being monitered and kept at 2.5 INR but somehow they doubled it and my INR rose to 18. They brought me down quickly in the hospital back to 2.5 INR, but I did not like seeing blood clots in my urine, after triple bipass surgery 5 months earlier. I was so tired I would fall asleep at the wheel or while working if I did not take caffiene pills.
Avatar n tn Because I do not consume animal products and did not know whether the sort of vitamin-B12 pill I was taking worked for me, I thought it could be neurological symptoms of a deficiency, although unlikely just after 3 years with that diet. Had a blood test done, blood was perfect all in all, while B12 on the low end, but still considered "normal". What's also interesting is that I have a sensitivity to some chemicals I have not certainly identified, but it's not an allergy.
Avatar n tn Has had minor problems in the past few months with passing blood thru his urine, cramps and pains in his mid section. Please let me know if you might have any idea of what this latest event could possibly be. ============================================================ Thanks for your question.

Avatar n tn A 77-year-old woman who developed a 2-fold increase in INR while receiving APAP with concomitant acenocoumarol (8), and a 74-year-old man experienced a 3-fold increase in INR when APAP was added to his stable warfarin regimen (6). Fluindione has also been implicated in this interaction (9). In a prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial 36 patients received either APAP 2 g daily, 4 g daily, or placebo for 4 weeks.
Avatar f tn My vet has done two urine test a week and a half apart and he has more and more blood showing up, he now says he is in kidney failure and i should put him down. Do you think this could have been Rat Bait or something else?
Avatar n tn Hi, Thanks for writing in.Blood in urine could be due to infection or trauma or irritation or tumor. In your husband's case as there is no history of trauma and infection has been ruled out, the other causes of bleeding have to be checked. In diabetics, fungal infections are more common, investigations directed on this aspect are necessary. Also a CTscan with levels PSA could be helpful in determining if any neoplasm is present.
Avatar f tn They test the blood but dont know what tests. They tell me my magnesium in blood is ok. Well it always is and blood doesnt show organ Mg levels. Now its too late ive had af for too long for it to reverse. My dr didnt know about the new anticoag pradaxa- dabigitran extelate being approved for af. I have lost confidence in my healthcare people. Its depressing.
