ER Visit or Just Cranberry Juice? *updated 10/18/12*
I did/do have a UTI and upper respiratory infection. I was given antibiotics and I should be back to normal soon! I just need to keep drinking lots of fluids and make sure that I take the meds even after I feel better! Thanks again for all the well wishes and advice!
I had a very long day at work yesterday, and am slightly under the weather, but I am a little scared. I have blood in my urine. Not a couple drops, it is completely red. I know it isn't menses. I'm sorry if this is TMI but I'm hoping someone may have an idea about this. it first happened about 6 pm yesterday and upon every trip to the restroom since. At first there was no discomfort or pain, but now it is slightly uncomfortable and kind of like a UTI but not painful. I had a UTI years ago, but never like this. I don't want to panic and go to the ER because I have no insurance and another bill is the last thing I need if it is unnecessary. Suggestions?
Yesterday evening I noticed there was less and last night it seemed none but small spots on the tissue. This morning there was none at all. I am going to stay away from alcohol and pop (soda for you southern ladies) for a couple of weeks just to be safe. It makes me wonder if those clots I saw were stones? I'm a little perplexed, but happy there is no blood! I was really scared. Thanks for being there ladies!
