I called my doctor and was seen yesterday afternoon. I've been put on antibiotics as a precaution and have been scheduled for a CT scan on Tuesday. Possible kidney involvement. On a happy note, the bleeding has slowed way down, and I'm feeling much better today. Thanks for all the good advice. I'm still a newbie lupie when it comes to figuring out when to seek medical care.
Thanks for letting us know you have been to the docs.
I know that uncertainty that I had as a newbie (which is why this group is so helpful), and I still get it now (8 yrs after diagnosis) with new symptoms. (Or symptoms I managed to shove to the back of my mind when they weren't around.)
It is always better to err on the side of caution and go to the docs, especially with things like blood in urine, increased or new pain, feeling depressed or anxious, rashes etc. I always go even if I get a bad cold or flu so the doc can check that nothing else is going on underneath the symptoms. Your doc looks like she/he is on the ball so no worries there.
Hope the antibiotics work, I have had a lot of urine infections in the past with blood in my urine and antibiotics are just what is needed.
