i recently have been feeling ill with flu like symptoms and bladder pain. I did a urinalysis diptest which showed positive nitrites and positive blood in a mid stream sample. I sent this to the microbiology lab for culture and the reults came back with no growth. why would this be?
Also my urine still shows the same result on diptest and smells very strong.
If i do not have a urinary tract infection what else could this be?
