I get lots of blood in my urine, like a tablespoonful several times over the last month. I don't have any pain or fever or any of the other symptoms that I have found.

My urine is bright red with blood. I also have an urgency to urinate that is awful, but not painful.

My Dad has blood in urine and is having trouble with clots causing blockage and some pain. He's on antibiotics but would like to know if there's something to help the blockage.

I am supposed to be donating my kidney next week. During my pre-admission testing, they found blood in my urine. Now I'm freaking out, because I don't want them to cancel or postpone the surgery and I have no clue why there's blood in my urine.

If I don't drink water in a six-hour period, I get blood in my urine. When I drink lots of water, my urine gets transparent.

I am 28 years old and have been drinking heavily for approx. 12 years. I wet the bed fairly often involuntarily after having drank heavily, and the other morning I woke to discover noticeable blood in my urine. What could cause this? I have no money, no job, and can't afford to have it checked out right now. Could it be effects of drinking for years, like a kidney or liver problem? Other than my drinking problem, I consider myself healthy, with very rare illness.

Blood showed up in my urine suddenly this Saturday morning. There were no warnings and no symptoms. It has been there continually throughout the day, whenever I urinate. I'm on Coumadin, and I think I've been prescribed an excessive amount. I plan to have a ProTime test Monday and then talk to my cardiologist. The next step would be a visit to a urologist, but I have a strong hunch that blood thinning is the cause.

I regularly have blood in my urine, although it is not seen with the naked eye. It is diagnosed when I have a physical, admitted to hospital for other things, etc. I have been to a urologist a few years ago, and they said nothing was wrong at that time, but it continues.
