Hi niluka;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If you are pregnant then please see if you have any beeding .The 18-20 red blood cells may be due to infection in urine also see if there are pus cells in urine.With the report please consult your doctor she will examine you and if there is no other problem seen after physical examination then she will treat you for urine infection.
Thanks

For the past two years, I ve been getting what I thought were urinary tract infections. While being treated for that, my symptoms would be better, but not gone all the way. The symptoms I m referring to is the following: When I have to urinate, my left side hurts by the top half of my ribs. The pain goes into my chest. When my side hurts, that s how I know I have to urinate. Sometime the urination has a bad smell. I don t feel the tinkling in my stomach anymore when I need to urinate, only an uncomfortable feeling in my side, and chest. My doctor passed away in August, and I now have no insurance. Please help!
