Thread: brown pee

    Pale or clay colored stool can be an indication that bile is absent in the stool. Bile is released by the biliary system, which is comprised of your gallbladder, liver, and pancreas.

    Sorry you are not getting any answers from your health care professionals.

    All the best,

    It really doesn't sound kidney related. I would bet on liver as well. Get to a new doctor!

    Blood tests can tell kidney or liver issues and then simple abdominal ultrasounds. Dark brown almost rusty color is usually liver with or without stool issues. Then Ct scans and/or MRI after that and if something suspicious biopsy. CWO

    so this is turning into Lymphadema.

    no doubt about that.

    it seems to wake up at night. I can feel something moving in the swollen lymph nodes.


    the ones on the inner thighs, where the bruise and darkened skin was, turned into what looks like lymphadema.

    I no longer have arm pits. and it is really affecting my boobs. one more than the other.


    at night it gets harder to breath. my heart hurts more, and I get fevers and extreme sweating.

    at night my pee can range from brown, to red or purple.

    during the day it is normal clear looking pee.



    if I tell my Dr that I don't think it will do my crazy lady persona any good.


    the thing is, other people around here are sick. their complaints are like mine were about nine or ten months ago.

    my daughter and grand daughter have a bump on the bottom of their feet, swollen red hands and feet and itching.

    my daughter described it was like standing on marbles. for about three months it was like standing on marbles for me.

    dr had no clue. from there its been one long nightmare.


    at night it behaves like malaria.


    I was a microbiology major in another life. with primary interests towards parasites that affect livestock.

    I think this behaves like bovis babes, which is a protozoa that travels in bovine or deer tick bacteria.


    the reason I think it could be protozoa is because of the broken red blood cells. and because it seems to wake up at night.

    I wish I had a microscope, I could identify it myself.

    hitches a ride in tick bacteria that affect cattle in the southwest.

    Because we have had a couple of very mild winters, its a likely the damp meadows I used to work my dog in, are infected with this because of the deer feeders my neighbor put up. it attracts feral hogs, deer, and several types of rodents.

    feral hogs can carry babesia bovis, infected ticks as well as deer and rodents.

    the trouble is, to see it, the blood draw must be at night when the parasite is active.
    a daytime blood draw will only show broken red blood cells where the larva were before they emerge and become adult protozoa.

    I did my second year term paper on this parasite, and hemolytic anemia in cattle.
    it wouldn't be contagious to other people, unless the tick that bit me also bit them. between us we have five cats. I watched their cat for a week last fall when they went away, then the cat went back home. babesia's other vector can be toxoplasmosis bacteria. the immune system can kill the toxo but not the protozoa. if a cat got bit by an infected deer tick, and the cat carried toxo, the protozoa can be spread to people with toxoplasmosis bacteria.

    I had to spend a good chunk on flea meds because their kitty was loaded with flea's. we treated everyone with a type of oral ani parasite med that kills worms as well as flea's and ticks, but not the people. the ticks are almost too small to see.
    so I think it is possible.

    I doubt my dr would know much about protozoa.

    smasms ...because of my spinal cord injury, its very hard to get a doctor to accept me as a patient. they send them all an hour away, and I can't drive with this illness.
    I have no other options, except is she sends me to a specialist.

    unless she see's a reason to send me to a specialist, she won't give me a referral.
    I have been able to see another dr in the practice.

    he is the one who ordered the lymphatic biopsies, that were not done because the person doing the biopsy felt they did not look like cancerous lymph nodes, and the order was to look for lymphatic cancer. since every single lymph node in my body is visible she said I should get a script to test for lupus.
    I got tested for lupus in 2009. it was negative, so it left me going home with a really pissed off roommate who took the day of to see if I had lymphatic cancer.

    its really progressed since then though. I have legs like tree's, and even my hooha is blowing up.

    You need to be seen by a liver specialist as a first step and then go from there. I am not sure that there is anything else that we can recommend for you.

    I sure hope this is the one Jody. The healthcare system is certainly failing with you.
