External vaginal/rectal irritation, stinging, pain!

The end o f Jan . My words to my GYN were "till a week ago my only complaint was some slight vag. irritation/dryness (I'm 57 so that surprise me.), but then in mid-Dec. found blood in my urine for 2 days followed by a heaviness/discomfort on my left side . Urine test showed blood/bac. Long story short he ruled out vag. bleeding and since then have had a round of Mircobid for 5 days, then, a lost test to see if that had worked, 3 weeks later a repeat test found blood... I took Cipro for 5 days and saw a urologist..cat/x-ray showed a small stone "that I should be able to pass"..if not he'll "go and get it in a week" . Motrin handles the occas. pain in my lower side, which seem to have moved as low as it can go...but my vag./rectal,stinging is getting worse...especially after urinating or a bowel movement.Then , other times  it's not that uncomfortable ..Does this go with having the stone...I thought maybe the urine was extra strong or whatever even though I'm drinking a lot of water.. I also have heart valve problems and take Toprol, Laxis, Plavix...and Hemochromotosis. Right now it seems a long time till monday evening when I can get some info   from the urologist and thought you might give me some information to put my "bottom" and mind to rest. Thankyou

There are a variety of causes that can cause blood in the urine, including kidney stones.  Other causes would include kidney or bladder disorders, as well as genitourinary infections.  

If the pain continues, a urologist may be needed to perform a procedure to retrieve or break up the stone.  If the stone is not causing your symptoms, then a cystoscopy may be needed to make sure there are no bladder tumors or masses that can be causing the bleeding.  I would also send off some urine for cytology - which is another type of tumor evaluation.

A kidney ultrasound can also be considered to evaluate for anatomical kidney disorders.  

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
