Question: Tiny white specks in urine?

 lindzyb - Thu Nov 15, 2007 12:47 am

I just got over a Kidney infection & have noticed itty bitty (seriously SMALL) white specks in my urine. I have been checking because even after taking the Antibiotics, I am experiencing a small amount of pain. Definitely not like the pain before, but still, pain. Should I tell my doctor, or not worry about it? I didn't know if that could show up just a few days (2) after finishing the antibiotics or not.

User avatar Usually it is wise to have a follow up urine test to be sure the infection is gone. Since you are still having pain, it might be wise to have it checked out.

Good luck.
