Blood in your urine, hematuria, does occur with polycystic kidney disease, but that doesn't mean that there might not be another cause. The usual concerns exist (stones, tumors) and you do need to be evaluated for this as any other individual would. You need a CT urogram (if your serum creatinine is not elevated) and a cystoscopy. Polycystic kidneys can cause pain but time off will not make the pain better unless you were struck in the area of your kidneys. Just struggling with an individual may give you true back pain, but without a blow to the area, the kidneys would not be effected.
A work excuse would depend upon the result of your evaluation and the personality of the physician.
