Babesia can. It's know as "red water fever" in cattle.

Lenny,
Your primary care physician should be the one to answer your questions about this during your appointment.

If you got rattled during the appointment and forgot to ask something (this is awfully common), give the office a call, and talk to the nurse.

Did your doctor say if you needed any further tests?
Are you scheduled to see him again?

Hope you can get some answers.
Carol

I have this since at least 37 years. Despite lots of painful exams they never found the reason why.

I think in my case it's Lyme or Babs related. Don't know if I have Babs, though.

I think you said your on ceftin?
Well when I was on that one I had the most severe yeast problem by not taking enough acidophilis and made a mistake of having a regular soda pop.

You may have this yeast problem further up your urinary tract than I did. Make no mistake yeast can eat away the protective linings.

Interesting Tree- most of my problems started after my one week of taking cedax (same family as ceftin)

big lenny- was a culture done or just one of those dip stick tests. The dip stick test showed i had traces of blood and nitrates....but when the culture/urinalysis came back it showed niether. If this wasnt sent out to the lab i would probably go back and see if they can order a urinalysis/culture.

Lenny,
I have had hematuria (trace blood in urine) on and off for years. Is this something new for you? Some people have the condition and a cause is never found.

Mine was hereditary from my grandmother. However, I wouldn't doubt if Lyme had something to do with it along with my irritable bladder (which they never found a cause for)!

Have the test done again in a few weeks to see if you get the same result. As we know, tests are done at a point in time and I wouldn't think anything of it unless the result was the same more than once for something like hematuria.

It could be a slight urinary infection...or just about anything...that could go away on its own.
