have been Showing Protein Positive in dip test at my PCP and Blood presence of 50-100 since 2002. I have also shown blood and protein during lab(urine) tests. This happens almost on a monthly or 6 weeks basis.I have no pain during urination; however, I do get pelvic pain and lower back pain most of the time.
My tests are never done during or close to my menstrual cycle so we know it's not from that.
I recently went to a urologist and he is going to test me on Feb. 25th with a catch through the urethra?. ... He is using a scope to go in and see what is happening.
I have had a few (about 4 in all from 2002 - 2007) episodes of sincopes when I have passed urine during these years and also I have lower back pain in addition to lower abdomen (pelvic) pain. In Nov. of 2008 I thought I had apendicitis because I could not even sit with the pain I had. I was told at the ER, after a catscan and blood/urine test, it could be cistitis and then treated for UTI. I have many UTI's during the course of one year more than 3 or 4 at least but no pain during urination. Can you shed some light on my confusion. I am not one of those people that gets worked up over results or possibilities but not knowing makes me very inpatient.
Hi, I forgot to mention above these few important factors:
I have SLE/Sjrogens and take Plaquenil for past 1 1/2 year.
Had one blunt trauma to abdomen in 2002... causing a lump (which went away) near the belly button/ c-section area... with huge area of hemotoma...
