About a year ago I noticed that my urine had small orange/red coloured crystal looking bits in it. I went to my doctor and he took x-rays and sent my urine (with the gravel bits clearly visible in it) away for testing. Everything came back clear. He suggested that 'gravel' was not uncommon and that I should drink lots of water. After a week or so it went away. The symptoms have now returned. I have looked closely at the gravel and it is truly sandlike in nature and colour. There is no real pain or discomfort although I am aware that my urine feels different.
Does anybody have any insights into this condition?
