Bubbles in my urine, Eye floaters = scared
« on: May 31, 2009, 11:52:13 AM »
Hi everyone,
I have been going crazy with my health since December 08. It all started when I was involved in a car accident that was not that bad. I had to be taken to the hospital just because the paramedics thought I should get checked out. So I went and to make a long story short they ended up finding microscopic blood in my urine. So I went to my doctor to get checked out she said I had a urine infection which is rare for a male to get. So I had a blood test done and everything came back normal. I was then using the antibiotics that the doctor gave me for the urine infection, when I noticed that when I would pee I would see bubbles in my urine in the toilet bowl. I then went to the doctor and she said that she does not know why I would have bubbles in my urine. So she sent me to have a CT scan of my kidneys. I went and did that the test came back that my kidneys are fine. So I was still scared that something is wrong with me so I went to see an urologist. He ran a test and said that I do not have any blood in my urine anymore.  So he still had to do this procedure to where he stuck this big stick in my urine hole. He said that my bladder and everything else looked good.  I asked him while why do I have bubbles in my urine still then. And he said that he does not know and he thinks it is nothing and for me to relax. He then said if I want he will send me to a kidney specialist. I then went to see the kidney specialist and she did urine tests and blood work on me and she said that everything is normal. So I asked why do I have bubbles in my urine and she said she does not know.  So as you can see I have been getting the same I don't know answer from all of these doctors which drives me crazy. So I was fine for a while and figured that it was nothing. Then one day a few months ago I noticed I had something floating in my left eye when I would look at bright things. So I looked it up and saw that it is an eye floater. I then was reading and it said it could be a sign of diabetes. I was then back to being nervous about the bubbles in my urine and know this eye floater is a sign that I have diabetes. So I went to the eye doctor to see what is going on with my eyes. I had an eye examination done and the doctors said that my eyes look good and that not to worry about the eye floater that it will go away in time.  I was back to being fine when I looked up into the shy one day and noticed that in my right eye I saw a light circle. I then looked up eye floaters again and that is another eye floater.  So know I am back to thinking I have diabetes and that I am going to go blind. I am just so scared of all of this I just don't know what to do anymore. I am 27 years old and I am good shape, so I don't know why I could have diabetes. I am trying to get back in to see the eye doctor to have my eyes dilated for them to check them.  I just need to know if anyone has had any of these problems and what I should do.
Thanks

I have had eye floaters for years. I am young as well and they can happen at any time. They are simply little pieces of tissue. While they are totally annoying, they are also harmless and not an indication of any other medical condition. I notice them more when it is brighter. Funny as I am typing right now I can see them in my eyes. I have a son and when he uses the toilet he has always created bubbles. I know he doesn't have diabetes. I really always though it was the power of his stream of his urine that created the bubbles. I promise you that I have had eye floaters for years and I am not going blind. Like I said they are incredibly annoying sometimes but that is about all.

I have gone into the bathroom after my husband has used it (didn't flush) and the toilet also has bubbles in it. I wouldn't really worry about the bubbles you have gone to many different doctors and they have said that there is nothing wrong with your kidneys. Also the floaters very normal. When I had my first bout of HA back in 2007 I had a floater and because it was winter and there was snow on the ground everytime I looked outside or was driving my car I would see the floater. I went to the eye doctor and he said they are normal and will go away on there own. He said that it is more of an annoyance.  Well two weeks ago I noticed I have another floater. I was just at the eye doctors in February and everything with my eye looked perfect and he actually said he didn't need to see me for two years so I really wouldn't worry about the floater.

Men tend to make bubbles when peeing. Like another mentioned it is likely the stream causing that.

Floaters are benign.  My first floaters happened 17yrs ago.  I went to the opthamologist.  She said that the fluid that fills the eye (vitreous) collects dirt/junk/whatever over the years.  It usually settles at the bottom of the eye.  Occasionally it can get stirred up and float around.  I equate it to shaking up a snowglobe.  The snow floats around then finally settles back down.  It's harmless.

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

My son leaves bubbles in the toilet all the time. What is it with teen boys not flushing? >:(  And the floaters are normal. The eye dr. would have seen if you had damage to your eyes from diabetes. My mom is diabetic and the eye dr. could tell from his exam. I went through a diabetes scare too at one time. I had a 6 hour test done where they test your fasting lvl. Then have you drink the sweet stuff and test your blood every hour for 6 hours. Lemme tell you...getting poked with a needle in the same place over and over sucks. Just call you dr. and ask to be tested so  you can put your mind at ease.

Hi,

I am a 23 year old female and I had to comment because your story sounds a lot like mind. I in fact just went to a urologist and they did an ultrasound on my renal artery, kidneys, and bladder. They also did the same procedure that you were talking about where they insert the cytocope (sure I am spelling that wrong) in your uretha. Talk about being uncomfortable. Guess what? My tests all came back normal as well. Like you, I asked the doctor, "well why do I still have this dull back pain that sometimes moves to my groin?" He said well I really don't know. Like you, I was expecting to find the answer. I thought for sure they were going to find some sort of kidney disease, bladder problems, etc.

Like others have said, I think it is completely normal for people (esp. men, because I have seen it when my b/f goes to the bathroom) to have bubbles in their urine. As far as the eye floaters, get them all the time as well but I had my glucose checked and no diabetes. My doctor told me that as we go through each decade through the aging process, we will start to experience new aches and pains that are normal. It's just a part of life.
