One of those foolish sounding questions

9 posts in this topic

I've done some reading about this but have found nothing similar.

 

I have just an occasional pee that is very cloudy- not just a little but a lot. It will happen once ever couple of weeks for one time, maybe a second pee. But I can't tell when it will happen so can't do a catch for urinalysis. Sometimes it will be a month between episodes.

I have no other signs of a bladder infection- there is no pain or burning- nothing.

 

Has anyone any advice to offer? I have been ignoring it for over a year now. But it is a nagging little worry that this is not quite right.

Enjoytheride, just to make sure your urinary tract is working well, a chem panel and urinalysis would certainly be warranted. You don't have to wait until you "see" something for the lab to rule out serious problems. Some things such as protein, white blood cells, etc. can be detected under the microscope and with chemistry tests that are in extremely small quantities. The cloudiness may even be vaginal mucus. Either way, don't wait to get it checked out.

Hello Enjoytheride

 

I'm with Janet get it checked out as soon as possible. There are many possible causes some benign some not so benign so it's worth checking out.

 

Take care.

Me too (on getting it checked out). It may be nothing, it may be something, but why risk having something keep your immune system in a tizzy?

Hi I agree with you all. I'm a registered nurse and say you get to your doctor straight away. Okay? It may be nothing but you have got a problem somewhere in that area. Whether it's vaginal or not I'd get it seen to.

 

It could be drug issues too that could be "tickling" the kidneys a bit, either way having it looked into will settle your mind.

 

Let us know how you get on, okay?

 

Love,

Lynn :emoticon-hug:

As someone whose kidneys failed and was on dialysis 5 1/2 years before a transplant YOU DON'T WANT TO MESS WITH YOUR KIDNEYS!!! I ignored the signs, my doctor's didn't pay as much attention to my creatinine levels as they probably should have and I paid the price. Get to the doctor! Good luck and I hope it ends up to be nothing.

Not really- as I thought, he said without being able to get a sample, he could not tell what it was. The last urinalysis I had was negative.

However I do have an open lab order so when it happens, he said I should go right to the lab. With any luck, it won't happen at 3 am some morning. :(

Thanks for asking.
