I am no Doctor but it doesn't sound like a Fibromyalgia thing. Usually Fibromyalgia causes fatigue and tons of aches and pains all over. Your bruising problem should be looked at.

I have read in the past Leukemia and other immunosuppressive diseases can cause more bruising than usual. Certain meds can too such as Aspirin, Ultram, etc.

You need to see a nephrologist (kidney specialist) or urologist right away. Blood in the urine can be caused by many factors. Kidney disease is hig on the list. Don't wait since the condition can be progrssive.

I too have fibro and have had since i was 16, irritable bladder is a  known symptom/side, effect is there any reason why this could not be the cause of the blood in the urine?

Haematuria may not be a known symptom but as there has not been a great deal of research into fibro it could be possible that it is a symptom that has not been picked up.

I have to agree with the previous posts...I have fibro too and never had blood in my urine, it is mostly pain and fatigue. I don't bruise easily. so I would be concerned and see a specialist. sorry couldn't be much help.

I have had fibro for many many years.  I doubt the blood in urine is from it, HOWEVER...when you put blood in urine /AND bruising, it could definatly be fron the BC powder.  8 a day would tear up not only your bladder, but kidneys and liver.  I am not allowed aspirin, or stuff like it, because it gives me bleeding ulcers......You better stop taking them and go to an internest or someone else that will trace it all over your body and not just take a urine sample.  I was told if my ulcers started bleeding I may not even get to the ER but die on the way.  I have had to have several transfusions.  All internal bleeding is serious.   Love to you   Jerri
