Question: Please help me, not UTI?

 pika - Sat Jan 07, 2006 12:39 am

I went to a local Dr. My GP is still on holiday, door closed.

I told him I got the tingling (blowing bubbles like vibration) has gone thro' my hands and legs. I also have an lower abdomenal pain. He said is UTI. Have a urine test. Result come back as follow:

pH: 5.0 Protein: Nil Glucose: +++ Blood: Nil

* Leucocytes 21 x 10 ^6 /L (<10 x 10 ^6 /L)
* Erythrocytes 11 x 10 ^6 /L (<10 x 10 ^6 /L)
Epithelial Cells +

No significant growth.

BP : 160/80 (Never had one like that, all the time around 120/80)

He wrote me a letter "go to hospital" now! I asked him what happen if I'm not going? He said that I'll be very very sick later on. ??? Something inside there is very wrong! This urine test was taken at 30/12/05. Being a week already so today I went back to get the result.

I went thro' the google search. Can't understand the figure means. Why I would get these? Is it the normal things or not? Why have to send me to the hospital for? Is this an UTI? Please someone tell me! I'm still at home and hang around and don't know what to do?

Thanks for looking at my post and hopefully someone can help me out.

User avatar Hi pika,
Mere presence of increased number of white blood cells in the urine (pyuria) does not mean automatically that one has a urinary infection. Pyuria can be caused by a vast number of conditions (viral fevers, urinary stones etc).
Proof of a UTI should come from a positive urine culture test.
The softness of the ...(organ?) you allude to needs to be investigated on its own merits.Cheers!
