This week I went to my ob-gyn with what I thought was perhaps cyst-related pain; I've been having severe pain in my lower back and abdomen for about a week. Upon taking a urine sample, however, she said that she saw both red and white blood cells in the sample. This, along with fever of 102 degrees, led her to suspect a kidney infection. Today the sample came back and there is no infection. So why the red and white blood cells in the urine? She didn't answer that question, just said that we would do an ultrasound and then talk further. Should I be concerned that there is something seriously wrong with my kidney? I surely will appreciate any ideas that you can share. Thank you!
