Thanks for posting your query.

Traces of blood in urine is suggestive of urinary infection. If it is symptomatic then it needs to be treated with systemic antibiotics. The feeling of heaviness in stomach might be due to infection or digestive problem.

Pain in ankles can be due to increased blood uric acid levels. You can confirm this with the help of a simple blood test. Doing hot fomentation and analgesics like Acetaminophen can be of help.

Pain in lower back can be due to bad posture. Try to correct your posture and use a hard bed for rest.

Hope this answers your query. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
