Had two tests done, one was a full body check which detected high cholesterol in the blood and rbc count of 22 in urine where 13 was the borderline and nothing else. For the follow up urine test a momth later there was protein detected but rbc was down to 13. Now whats getting me worried is that the doc said there might be a kidney or other organ problem and that i'd need to see a specialist. Unfortunately I won't get to see this specialist for another month and im getting worried with what the problem might be and if waiting another month might make it worse. As far as symptoms go, I feel fine, or at least i'm not in any pain, previously or now.

Sorry for late reply, completely forgot.
Anyways went for a 3rd test and all was normal though the doctor suggested a 4th test since 2 abnormal and one normal still isn't conclusive of anything.

regarding your questions my blood pressure, at the time of the first test, which was November last year was 122/70 and no fever.

Since I haven't had a thorough urine test yet, I can't answer the other questions.
