I have put weight on

Thanks for the information

If your ultrasound is normal and you have persistent hematuria you should have an X-ray KUB(kidney,ureter and bladder),CT scan and see a urologist for cystoscopy to have a direct visualization of the bladder

Not all the diseases are picked up an ultrasound and further evaluation is definitely required

I had a stool test done and they found inflammation in my bowel

The blood in the urine is not there all the time

Although the chances are low but still you need to have further investigations

Stone can be another reason and some type of stones are not visible on ultrasound so that is why you need further evaluation

Right ok
I just don’t understand
Why I get this pain on my left side and have inflammation in my stool.
But only get the pain when I’m on my period .
With other symptomsAll this just makes me really anxious and scared

The inflammation in and pain on left side can be due to infection in the intestine

Regarding hematuria or blood in urine you need investigations as I mentioned
