No blood not sure about swelling just felt it this weekend becaus ethe pain kept on. It bothers me to sit and lie down.
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 7 years ago.
Sounds possible that this may be a urinary tract infection. I think you need to see your doctor to have your urine cultured and possibly be started on antibiotics. If the pain is very severe, you may need a CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis to rule out a kidney stone is the cause of your pain. Hope this helps. Let me know if there any other questions or concerns.
