Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

you need to be seen at the A&E right away.

Dr. David :

you most likely have trauma to your kidneys which is causing you to pee blood.

Dr. David :

this is not normal and needs to be evaluated and treated.

Dr. David :

the doctors at the A&E can check your ECG and check your heart and check your breathing as well.

Dr. David :

do you have a hospital or A&E close to you where you can be seen right away.

Dr. David :

you need a urinalysis to check your urine .

Dr. David :

an a kidney ultrasound as well.

JACUSTOMER-2vz1u0xw- :

I did go to urgent care on night it happened and they said it was just soft tissue damage although all they did was have a quick look and took a urine sample which came back clear

Dr. David :

did you have blood in your urine at that point?

Dr. David :

do you have a history of excessive anxiety?

Dr. David :

that can cause trouble breathing and heart palpitations as well.

Dr. David :

how old are you?

JACUSTOMER-2vz1u0xw- :

not at that point that started a couple of days later. I do suffer anxiety but not been too bad i am 40.

Dr. David :

if the blood in the urine is new, you need to go back to the A&E and get your urine and kidneys checked again.

JACUSTOMER-2vz1u0xw- :

thank you very much for your advice

Dr. David :

you are welcome

Dr. David :

I hope you get better

Dr. David :

thanks.
