The various causes for this bleeding in urine (called as hematuria) can be;

1) Kidney and bladder stones

2) Urinary Tract Obstruction

3) Urinary Tract Trauma

4) Excessive exercise

5) Urinary tract Infection

6) Sickle Cell Disease

7) Kidney and bladder tumor

Read the resource;

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/blood-in-urine/DS01013

Urine culture and an ultrasound are the first investigative protocol. Intravenous pyelography, CT scan, cystoscopy, etc may be followed depending on the initial investigative results. The investigation of hematuria begins with a search for bacteruria (bacteria in urine) or pyuria (pus in urine). If either is present, a urine culture should be ordered to confirm urinary tract infection (UTI). In the absence of infection, the next step is to distinguish glomerular and nonglomerular sources of hematuria. Following would be required in step wise fashion;

1) Intravenous pyelography

2) Multidetector CT urography

3) Cystoscopy (camera examination)

If these investigations are not conclusive for the diagnosis MR urography would be advised. Consulting a urologist would be best.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

what about the blood tests and urine sample ? They don't count as good sources of information about what's going on ?

A medical imaging like ultrasound and a CT scan are the most informative.

But I've an ultrasound 2 weeks ago (I've told you about it) and it didn't show anything about my kindneys etc

I'm so scared

It is good that ultrasound is normal. A repeat ultrasound can show a concretion or stone which may have been missed.

A CT scan is done to further confirm the normalcy.

As we discussed this is unlikely to be anything serious or life threatening in your age group.

I'm okay ? The chemist yestarday told me that maybe it's a broken blood vessel or something and it takes little blood to show that's too much and that it will go away in its own ... so the leg weakness and nausea and high heart rate it has nothing to do with a medical condition ?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I'm so scared it's a tumor in my urinary system or something really bad that theyre missing when I go througt the examinations etc

A blood vessel rarely can rupture and can cause transient bleeding off and on.

Leg weakness and high heart rate are due to anxiety.
