I am in SO much pain and it has been coming back here and there whenever it wants to for the past 6 months.

Started in May, after 2 weeks of pain I went to the hospital. Low level of blood in my urine. Doctor said it was kidney stones. Sent me to get a CT scan... didn't show any stones. I felt something move from my kidney to my bladder 2 days after the scan. Pain resided a little bit... just maybe a sharp pain 2-3 times a week.

Beginning of Sept the pain came back severely so I went to the hospital again. This time they found a lot of blood in my urine (Level 3+ which is the highest level I hear) and ordered me another CT scan... came back normal. Again, felt something move 2 days after my scan... pain gradually went away but not completely.

Doctor has no idea what I have a lot of blood in my urine and in so much pain with normal CT scans... so he referred me to a urologist... I made an apt and I can't be seen until Nov 20th.

The pain came back yesterday... a lot of pain today. I am SOOOO frustrated having all this pain with no answers. I am getting really worried that this pain has been lasting for 6 months off and on.... and what is with all this blood in my urine?

I am so upset... what is wrong??? What if it is worse than kidney stones? Should I see a doc again or wait a month for my urologist apt??
