I was wondering if anyone might have had a similar experiences and might be able to offer some advice or suggestions...
Last Friday I got a UTI and was treated at an urgent care facility (hadn't gotten a doctor yet since I recently moved). I was put on antibiotics for 7 days.
Tuesday I started getting pain in my lower back and so I made an appointment to see a regular doctor.
I saw the doctor today and he ran a urine test. The initial results came back rather oddly. My white blood cell (WBC) count was 3.0, which he said indicates a minor infection, but the puzzling part was my red blood cell (RBC) count came back 4.0, which indicates there's blood in the urine. However...I'm not anywhere near my period.
I'm still having the back pain, but it doesn't really hurt when I urinate anymore, things just feel...off.
The doctor said he's going to extend the antibiotic I'm on another 3 days to hopefully get rid of the infection and also prescribed pain medication b/c he thinks I might have kidney stones, which are causing irritation. He says the back pain is a bit lower than what you'd normally get with a kidney infection, plus if I had a kidney infection, he said the WBC counts would be substantially higher than the RBC count.
I'm supposed to call Monday if my back is still hurting and he said he'll probably order a CT Scan at that point.
Has anyone else had abnormal results like that and if so...what ended up causing them? I have a feeling somethings been going on for a few months just b/c since I was diagnosed with HSV-2 last March to December I hadn't had any outbreaks. aside from my primary. Then all of a sudden, 2 almost back to back ob's, and things just haven't felt quite right. I haven't had any more ob's since the beginning of Jan, but I can tell things just seem irritated.
I was tested for everything back around May, which came back fine and haven't had any new partners since then.
I'm scheduled to go to a new gynecologist in 2 weeks, so I'm hoping maybe they'll have some insight. I'd just like things to be...normal, down there. Ug
