White specks in urine???
« on: December 20, 2013, 01:56:43 AM »
Sigh. Okay. I got a tattoo a week ago, it does NOT look infected or feel infected, but I'm scared that I got some blood poisoning because you know tattoos are opened wounds. and all that such. I took proper aftercare of it though, but nope, I'm still scared I got sepsis or something. Damn you anxiety!
Anyways. So I went to the bathroom and I noticed some white specks in my urine. I know that one of the signs of sepsis is low or high white blood cell count? I'm kinda freaked about this and I can't get into my regular doctor until the 30th. I was thinking of going down to an emergent care tomorrow, but my mom says that I don't need to and I just need to drink more water.

Also, my left cheek feels warmer than my right and almost numb, but not really numb? I don't know it just feels weird. I am going to see a neurologist tomorrow though, so that's a somewhat relief!

But what are these white specks in my urine? ://

You can have debris in your urine that is absolutely benign. I have had white flakes numerous times, and the urologist has assured me this is not a major issue to worry over. It can be from excessive mineral concentration. As long as you are not having an UTI symptoms, I would think that you are ok.

You can't SEE white blood cells!  They're too small.

I know a woman who thought she was ill when she had white flakes (large) and it turned out that she'd forgotten to remove her tampon at the end of her period.
