Sorry if this is TMI but really need some advice, and hopefully you can tell me I dont need to worry.
Just been for a wee, and it was bright red as if it was full of blood (only noticed when I stood up to flush) I wiped again thinking AF may have arrived earlier than expected, but nothing Ive popped a pad in to keep an eye on things, but I dont feel crampy or in pain in anyway.
My first wee was definitely normal this morning, kind of waiting to see what happens when I next need the loo.
Is this normal? Scared to google it as its too easy to get carried away
Have you had a sore throat lately? My son developed a complication from a strep throat called Post strepticoccal glomerolunefritus (not sure of the spelling!) he was retaining fluid and had blood in his urine - it was more browny than red to be fair though. You will need to see your GP as it can cause kidney damage and high blood pressure.
MTB, I had blood in my urine a few months ago - it was more pink than red, so less of it, possibly, but still fresh blood. I had no pain either.
GP checked urine over a week, and it still had microscopic amounts in though nothing to be seen by naked eye - so he sent me to urologist to be on the safe side. I had a cystoscopy, which I dreaded but was not painful or awful at all - and all was well. I had a teeny polyp which may have bled, very common at my age.
But I suspect you are younger - I'm a venerable 53
Very likely to be innocent cause, but glad you're going to GP: right thing to do!
I have got a horrible sore throat at the moment, so maybe it's that - GP has advised to call tomorrow am and get an emergency appointment as they're fully booked. And I'm currently a 2 hour journey from home.
Just completely freaked me out when I looked down, now as much as I want to pee again, and have been drinking loads of water - I can't go
yes, they will still report into the gp. Sometimes at our surgery, you will get an appointment with a nurse in an emergency and they will do a few initial checks and then liase with the doctor if you need a prescription etc. so it uses up less of the doctors time if they have already checked your urine and done your blood pressure etc. I'd take a urine sample with you too....if you manage to pee by then.
Thanks everyone, I've had my appointment, and they've sent my urine off for tests, as the amount of blood has reduced, to the point it's almost looking normal again, I have to carry a little pee-pot with me so that if it happens again they can get a sample of it.
Also turns out I have tonsillitis - that I was not expecting.
Thanks all for the advice, and pushing me to see the GP
