I have had kidney stones, they do cause bleeding if they are irritating the ureter. It also hurts once it decides to make its journey down into it. Do you have any back pain (particularly lower)? Often there is discomfort in the back where the kidneys are with stones that are trying to move. I can tell you that I had no pain or discomfort until my stones moved though. Alot of people don't know that they have them until they get an xray and then they show up on them.
It could be kidney stones...if you doc suspects them, he or she will probably order what is called a KUB (kidney, ureter, bladder)series of xrays or a abdominal CT scan to get a better picture of what is going on there.
I hope this helps..
Thanks for writing.
Blood in the urine can present in one of two ways: gross hematuria (blood that you can see in the urine), and microscopic hematuria (blood that is only seen when the urine is examined under a microscope). Both types can have serious causes. So the various possibilities in your case are UTI, Pyelonephritis, Cystitis, Urethritis Glomerulonephritis and Urethral ulceration.Kidney stone can cause pyelonephritis as well as glomerulonephritis.
Diagnostic tests that may be performed include Urinalysis, Urine culture, X-rays of the kidneys, Cystoscopy, IVP, Abdominal ultrasound and CT scan of the abdomen.The treatment will depend on the cause of the blood in the urine.
Pls consult your urologist as soon as possible to avoid any further complication.These diagnostic tests need to be done to confirm a diagnosis.
Hope this information helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Kind regards.
