I went to the doctor about a week ago complaining of fever, fatigue, and a VERY overdue period (still hasn't come), and an hours worth of spotting. She said it sounds like I have a UTI(how she got to that i dont know). I had quite a few of these when I was younger (haven't had one since I was about 12) and I don't feel like I have one. I have no problems going to the bathroom, nothing burns or hurts. She did a urine test and the results came back yesterday. They said there were no "bugs" in it what so ever, but there was protein. She said to take the UTI anti-biotics and sent me on my way. To me, this doesn't feel like a proper diagnosis. Can anyone shed any light? Should I go consult another doctor? What else can cause protein in urine?
