My girl friend is experiencing lower adominal area and pain in the back. The doctor did a cat scan and all her organs were good. did not find any kidney stones but she has a high red blood count in her urine . She is still experiencing pain. He thinks it could be kidney stones, or a bladder infection . What do you think it could be.

Thanks for writing yor query.

After reading your post, it seems that your girlfriend is having urinary tract infection, which cannot be detected in CAT scan.

Other possibility of high red blood cells in urine along with lower abdominal pain is that she is having her menstural periods.

You should get her urine sample reinvestigated for Routine/Microscopic and Culture/Senstivity.
Encourage her to drink lots of pure water. She should drink atleast 8- 10 glasses of water in a day.

Treatment can be planned according to the reports ofthe above mentioned investigations.

I hope this is helpful to you.
