    Hi

    what due you mean by rhymodroid positive?? I didnot get please be clear with that test so that we can advice you accordingly. In present days typhoid has very minimal carrier state with the antibiotic use. RBC upto 4RBC/hpf in urine examination is generally considered normal, if the count is more than this then it need to be analyzed for the underlying causes like kidnet stones/ injury to urinary tract or any other cause.

    Please state whether you have thyroid on the lower or higher side?? What medications are you on.

    Hi

    RBC in urine culture is because of urinary tract infection. Take treatment as prescribed and you will be cured of urinary tract infection and typhoid. Take thyroid tablets regularly for good results. In thyroid diseases muscle pains may be seen, also in urinary infections also there may be weakness and pain in muscles. With control of infection and correction of thyroid levels you may get relieved with the symptoms.

    Did you mean Rheumatoid factor is positive? 

    You can get your urine tested again after your infection is treated.. If you still have 

    RBC , contact your doctor
