Worried! Anybody know what besides infection can cause blood in urine?
My dh was in a lot of pain a couple of weeks ago, and it had started a couple of weeks before THAT. Pain in his abdomen and he constantly had to pee and when he did not much would come out. One night he was even puking and moaning and writhing in pain in bed. It took me WAY too long to convince him to go to the Dr. He would feel really terrible for two or three days and just when he finally broke down and agreed to go to the Dr, he would feel a bit better for a day or two and decide he didn't need the dr. after all. He just got some vitamins and cranberry pills and thought that would cure it. I told him it wouldn't and begged him several times a day t o go to the dr, but he wouldn't listen.
FINALLY after he'd sufferred enough he went to the Dr. The dr. tested his urine, and since even before they tested it they saw there was blood in it, they prescribed him, I think it was called Cipro? It's only prescribed for Anthrax and severe urinary tract infection. He's been taking the antibiotics, and now they got his test results back and it says he does NOT have an infection. He has been feeling better on the antibiotics, but what could it be if it's not an infection. Does that mean it could be something worse, or should I not be worried since he feels better?
