thats exactly what i was about to say, perhaps a stone being passed, ie cystitis would cause blood IN the urine but to actually bleed from the urthera, given the pain and lack of infection symptoms, sounds like passing a stone. how is the actual stream??? lower back sounds more like that than it oes the kidneys as the pain is generally closer to waist height and more toward the sides (ie just under the rib cage at back
After a few hours of painful urinating all symptoms cleared up and bleeding stopped, it seems i have "grainy" kidneys and i most likely did pass some small stones. Im now going to book an appointment with the doctor for a referal to a specialist as i seem to be having quite a few problems with my kidneys, especially for my age.
good idea, wish I had but little late now for this chook!
Hello and hope you are doing well.
The common causes for painless bleeding in the urine are infections of the kidney/bladder, disorders of the kidney/bladder, certain blood disorders, strenuous exercise and certain medications. It could be due to cystitis. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.
In the meantime for relief from pain apply heated pads, drink plenty of oral fluids and take frequent sitz baths for 15-20 mins. Prevention of episodes is by urinating frequently, practicing good hygiene after each bowel movement, taking showers instead of bath tubs and urinating immediately after intercourse. Practice these life style changes they will help in the long run.
Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
