Low grade fever, frequent urination. Urine test shows mucus and blood, blood tests show elevated WBCs. UTI?

For the past 10 months I have had a chronic low grade fever . Urine results revealed urine mucus +2 and trace blood in my urine. I have suffered from moderate fatique for the last few months, but all of my blood work, except slightly elevated white cell, all came back in normal range. I started having frequent urination today, but no bacteria was found in my urine. Is a UTI ruled out? And what else could this mean?

Hello and welcome,

Thanks for your query.

From the information provided, a low-grade fever could mean that there is an infection of some sort.

Mucus in the urine could mean many things, but the most commonly occurring disease is a UTI (urinary tract infection).

The blood in your urine could also mean that you are bleeding (if you are a female).

Lets return to the urinalysis. As you mentioned the absence of bacteria in your urine analysis, may be we could repeat it once again.

Other cases in which mucus is seen in the urine are:
-Sexually transmitted diseases
-Stones in the Kidney
-Stones in the urinary tract

My advise would be to repeat a urine analysis and if the same result is seen, to get an ultrasound of the abdomen and pelvis. This should greatly help.

You can always write back to us for any further queries, and/or with the reports of your next investigation for more advise.

Wishing you good health always.

Best regards.
