  • I know some who have that, and end up with Kidney Stones. Have they checked for that???

  • The UTI can cause it, inflammation, injury to the urinary system (anywhere in the system), kidney stones, even strenuous exercise can cause it. Since you have had an infection, or several, for the last several months, I'm betting that's why there is blood in your urine.
    I'm curious, do you finish all of your antibiotics when you are prescribed them? If you don't, that would be why the infections don't clear up. Sometimes the bacteria are resistant to the antibiotics. They can become resistant because the antibiotics are not taken as prescribed. So, be sure to take the full amount prescribed. If the one given makes you sick, let your doc know, so they can give you a different one. Also, antibiotics tend to cause yeast infections, so watch out for that as well.
    Hope you feel better!

  • Can you get a 2nd opinion? Not to scare the crap out of you, but a friend of mine had this same issue and it turns out that she had herpes that never showed external symptoms, only internal ones that affected her bladder. I'm not sure if it's a certain strain of the virus that causes this or person dependent, but regardless, I share this because she went through 2 years of agony with a misdiagnosis and painful treatments that did NOTHING for her problem. In fact, the treatments actually made it worse. Once she got on the right meds, she has had fewer problems, much less pain, and no more treatments that caused it to be worse. Good luck to you.

  • when was your last pregnancy? gallbladder takes it hard when pregnant
    have no idea - just a stab in the dark
    also med for 6 months can help of course but also make your whole system out of wack
    agree with 2nd opinion

    hugs= hope you are better very soon

  • I had blood in my urine from a UTI before. It's caused by the irritation the infection causes to the lining of your bladder. I kept getting bladder infections like every month or two until I figured out it was because I wasn't peeing after sex (we'd just cuddle and go to sleep after). Since I found out and now get up and pee every time - I haven't had one UTI. Don't know if that is your issue, but just a thought.

  • I've had 3 UTI's and 2 of the 3 I had blood in my urine. The 3rd one didn't have any and there was also no pain. I only found out about it because I was pregnant and they always test urine at every visit.
