I am 49 years old and taking Topiramate 25mg twice daily to help with Migraine (I also have FMS and OA)- I have been taking this dosage now for about 2 years plus and for the last 5/6 weeks I have had lower left abdo pain - blood in urine, high ph levels - my white blood cell count was through the roof and a UTI has been counted out following antibiotics course - I still have blood in urine, PH and protein, plus the pain!
I have read a lot of info about kidney stones/staghorn and ph levels etc.,and can't get to GP until Wednesday and am thinking of coming of them altogether - but why the constant blood in my urine? Is this med the reason for this? Do my symptoms sound typical of kidney problems?
thanks in advance - wonderful site by the way!!
