My 4 year old was diagnosed with Poststrep Glomerulonephritis in May. He still has blood in his urine (not visable). He is also having problems with stomach aches when he eats and digestion issues. He had blood in his stool in July. They supected a milk allergy, blood test was negative. Now his joints hurt. They gave him a round of blood tests (CBC, Metabolic Panel, ANA, CRP, and Sed Rate) All came back fine, but the ANA was positive. We went to a Rheumatologist this morning. We mentioned the child has reoccuring mouth soures. The Dr. observed the child using the bathroom twice while in the office, and the child holds his penis frequently. The Rheumatologist says he needs a Urology exam to see if he has ulcer in his urethra before any further testing is done to diagnose why he got the positive ANA test. Do his symptoms add up to anything that may have been overlooked? My 4 year old was diagnosed with Poststrep Glomerulonephritis in May. He still has blood in his urine (not visable).

Do his symptoms add up to anything that may have been overlooked?Does his urine burn during voiding?I have read that vasculitis can cause many strange urine and generalized symptoms.Also I would ask about blood and urine tests for infection if that was not already done.Good luck.:cool:
