From how long are these symptoms?
Are you diagnosed of any medical condition?
Is there burning also while passing urine?
Was the blood bright red ?
Was the blood in urine during initial urination or the end of urination or was present during whole urination?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
1. It started about 10PM last night.
2. I have high diastolic blood pressure which is medicated with Verapramil.
3. I've had kidney stones, for which I take 10mg Allopurinol.
4. No, just a pink color.
5. I think throughout, altho I can see it more at the end.

Dear spectre,

I am sorry to know about your symptoms,

Based on what you mentioned,it does not seem that you should go to emergency room ,you can see the physician tommorow.
I will advise that you ask your physician to do urinalysis,imaging tests like xray to rule out undiagnosed kidney stones as a possible cause of blood in urine.I am also mentioning this as you do have history of kidney stones.
Also ask your physician to cystoscopy or ct scan to rule out malignancy or prostatitis as a cause of your blood in urine(hematuria).

Always ask if you need clarification/more information.Please click ACCEPT button to get my credit.POSITIVE feedback& BONUS are warmly appreciated. Please note that answer is for information only. It can't be a substitute to visit the doctor.
