Urinary Disorders

Why do I have Kidney pain

07/16/2008

Question:

Why do I have kidney pain (constant) and stong smelling cloudy dark yellow urine with little white things floating around in it? I have been to doctor twice been treated for uti with antibiotics, but the pain never stopped and seems to be getting worse.

Answer:

Most family providers will treat Urinary tract infections with a short course of antibiotics. If that does not take care of the problem then a more through evaluation should be done including a urine culture to document that an infection exists, an X-ray of the urinary system (usually a CT Urogram) and if need be a referral to a Urologist.
