Kidney issues, blood in urine. Scheduled CT scan. Feeling tired, low BP. Whats the cause?

My fiancée isn t feeling well. He s been complaining about his kidneys bothering him. He saw his Dr yesterday and was told he had blood in his urine . He has a scheduled CT Scan for next week tuesday. Now he is laying down not feeling too hot. Says he s feeling more tired then usual, his head is bothering him too and his blood pressure read 107/55. Not sure if all this is normal and if he can wait til Tuesday for the scan or if he should seek emergency help at the ER? Please help....

Hi, many thanks for the query!
Diastolic BP of 55 as you said is not good, ask him to drink more water.
If BP doesn't come up, see your doctor.
Blood in urine can be due to several causes, more commonly it is due to Ca-oxalate stones causing mechanical trauma to mucosa of urinary tract as it has spikes on its surface.
Also do- RFT, CBC.
So, for time being, you may take anti-spasmodics, pain killers, diuretics with
your doctor's opinion.
Wish you a good health.
Take care.
