    Blood in Urine After Workout !!!
    After a great swim and light weight workout I had some blood in my piss. I drank about 2 pints of water during my workout (swim and weights). Does this happen to anyone else? This is the third time this year I've experienced this.

    Going to doctor at the end of the week just in case.

    The differential diagnosis for hematuria is broad. Focus on your doctor's appointment and be prepared to provide a thorough history to your physician. The "What to Expect at Your Office Visit" section of this website will help you to prepare: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003138.htm

    Blood in the urine is never a good sign. Could be a Kidney stone. Glad you're seeing a doctor.

    Not normal for sure, but may or not may be serious. Have all the times you've had it been when you've worked out? If that were the case and you were of African descent I'd wonder about possibly sickle cell trait. There are other genetic abnormalities that can affect hemoglobin in a wide variety of ethnicities that might possibly behave like sickle cell, but less known and less studied.

    Could be kidney stones though they'd have to be very small not to be symptomatic. Could also just be dehydration depending on length and intensity of the work out.

    But definately needs to be evaluated and worked up.

    Actually it has happened to me and it might be absolutely nothing and yes it does happen because you worked out. Did you do some hard ab crunches, etc? It has happened about 2 or 3 times, but in my forties. I read that it happens more often to older guys. Are you taking anything that would be hard on your system, like on your kidneys and liver?

    It's good to get it checked out, but don't get too worried about it if it hasn't happened more often for you.

    microscopic hemoturia (ie cant see) can be normal for a very active (ei long distance runner) however seeing blood in your urine is not. If it happens more then once id have it checked out. Its up to you but If it does'nt come back there's a good chance its nothing. (However repetitive blood in urine and/or pain is not normal and should be checked out).

    Have a CMP done.
    Check your blood pressure. It's the leading cause of renal problems.
    It's usually pretty easy for a medical pro to figure out what's up.

    Just FYI, testosterone won't cause those sorts of problems. That's just garbage. For any real adverse stuff to happen with test, you'd need about 5000mg daily.

    Get a workup.

    He's only 27!! I think he's safe from hypertension related kidney damage...

    Good advice otherwise.

    I've seen hypertension in folks 16 years old.

    Hard telling what's going on, and I'm not a doctor, but, at 27, he's certainly old enough to have high blood pressure.

    It is never normal to see blood in the urine. Always err on the side of caution and see a doctor.

    I don't know if any of the people who have advised you here are physicians (I know chuckles is not, so whatever he said is worth it's weight in shit), so get your butt to a one and get an answer from someone who is actually licensed to practice medicine.

    I had hypertension at 27... it's not uncommon, my blood pressure got particularly bad when I'd workout.

    Stress was causing me to eat badly.. So I broke up with the arsehole who was treating me like shit.. lost a ton of weight started eating properly and looking after myself properly and bingo, I'm not nearly as stressed as I used to be, bood pressure is down and I'm happy icon_smile.gif
