Would you go to A and E with this? (picture included)

DH was weeing red yesterday and this is his wee this morning. He has a cold and has been taking lemsip. He's definitely had a temperature although no thermometer to check. Would this warrant a and e given the day/date? Thanks

Without a doubt. Why didn't he get help yesterday when he was weeing red?! That's not a cold symptom.

I would call 111 for advice!

Stormwhale Sat 31-Dec-16 08:27:52

Yes and take a sample.

ClarissaDarling Sat 31-Dec-16 08:28:47

Has he been eating lots of beetroot? How's his general health? Remember t'internet is not best place for medical advice as anyone can say anything!

He doesn't like a fuss. I'm loathe to call 111 as previously we've been on the phone for hours and then been sent up anyway and wasted lots of time (that was me when I had sepsis) so not interested in taking chances. Thanks we are on the way up

Crikey ..yeah or 111 / ooh gp

BalaRua Sat 31-Dec-16 08:30:01

He's eaten and drank the exact same as usual except for the Lemsips. He's normally well but suffers with ibs awfully so has a quite restricted diet

Haggisfish Sat 31-Dec-16 08:30:59

Yes without a doubt. Hope he's ok.

insancerre Sat 31-Dec-16 08:31:06

Has he had beetroot juice?
If not, then I would suggest he gets checked out as that's not a normal colour for pee

BikeRunSki Sat 31-Dec-16 08:32:24

Why wouldn't you go?!
Weeping red is not normal at all. I suspect 111 would send you anyway.

If he reads the leaflet that comes with Lemsip he'll see a clear warning in there that he should stop taking it and seek medical advice if he has any signs of liver problems, such as dark brown urine.

Crankycunt Sat 31-Dec-16 08:33:28

Is he drinking plenty of water?

BingBongBingBong Sat 31-Dec-16 08:34:13

Yes A&E and take the pee sample with you

Fairylea Sat 31-Dec-16 08:34:27

Yes please go asap. He needs to be seen urgently.

MozzchopsThirty Sat 31-Dec-16 08:34:51

Out of hours GP

This is neither an accident or an emergency

QueenMortificado Sat 31-Dec-16 08:36:01

That looks like an ale! Definitely go!

twocockersarebetterthanone Sat 31-Dec-16 08:36:20

Why is it so fizzy as well???

gunting Sat 31-Dec-16 08:37:09

Yes go

PotteringAlong Sat 31-Dec-16 08:37:52

Bloody hell! Yes! And take it with you.

NormaSmuff Sat 31-Dec-16 08:38:11

agree, out of hours GP

flumpybear Sat 31-Dec-16 08:38:18

I think the bubbles may be
Protein - I'd definitely go to A&E

PotteringAlong Sat 31-Dec-16 08:38:27
