Today I have begun my journey on this magical medical marvel called the web.  It's taken me a bit to get the hang of it.  Then trying to figure out where I posted my question to get back to try to see if I had a response, I must admit was a hysterical site to behold!!!  I figured out to copy that page and paste it in my email then just copy it in every time I want to go back and check it.  I had one response from an MD, which I am so greatful for.  I responded back to him.  But have no idea if I did it the right way.  Of course I forgot to put down, in addition to my gross hematuria (visible blood) in the urine, that my abdomen was swollen and I'm bruising pretty bad.  My bp had steadily been dropping down, 87 over 59, now it has reached a "normal" range 100 over 62 or 106 over 65 thereabouts.  I take Norvasc.  I think I will be coming off of it since my pressure is under control and insurance is gone, I will probably just pick up an over the counter diuretic and monitor bp.  I imagine none of the above is related except for the swolled abdomen, it occurred at the same time as the ,blood, in urine.  Time will tell.

I can't see your profile.  Are you female?  If so, you may want to consider Polycystic Ovarian Syndrom.  I have cysts with blood supply.  The blood seeps into my bladder and causes the hematuria.  My grandmother had similar issues, but her cysts were bleeding out into her abdomon enough to cause her to be severely anemic. (I don't know how to spell that).  If you had bleeding cysts that severe (she nearly died from the blood loss)- it could cause the bruising.  I have no idea if it would drop your blood pressure - but it makes logical sense to me (an accountant - not medical professional).  I hope this helps.  It took many Drs, ER visits, MRIs, Bladder Scopes and over 2 yrs for me to get an answer.  Even still only infertility specialists seem to not be surprised by the diagnosis.
