I'm sorry you had bloody urine and now have pain over your left kidney. This may be muscle strain or the beginning of a kidney infection (Glomerulonephritis). May I suggest you schedule an appointment with your doctor to have your kidneys evaluated. The Sleep Aides that you took should not have caused these symptoms and should not have caused kidney damage. Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend.

I hope I have addressed your concerns. Have I?

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you and that I have earned your 5 star rating today.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
