Back at the end of the summer I took a urine sample to my gp as I was peeing a lot more than usual. She dipped it and said no infection showing but traces of blood were in it. These are invisible to naked eye. She gave me a weeks course of trimethoprim and sent sample to lab. On the last day of antibiotic I seemed to settle down and was told if symptoms recurred to go back to see her. I was ok until the past few days when I noticed I was peeing a lot again. I have had some sharp pain around the side of my lower back. Area around vagina feels hot, if that is the right word, no pain on urinating though. Urine is normal colour and not cloudy . I took a sample to nurse today and she said no bacteria but blood traces and it is being sent off to lab. I am really worried as everything I read on UTI all say bacteria is in urine and it is cloudy. Im worried that I may have kidney or bladder diseases. The blood is coming from somewhere. I am 50 and in menopause. Don't know if this is significant. I'd love to hear from anyone else who has had similar symptoms. Thanks.
