Brief Answer: See detailed answer Detailed Answer: Hi there Thank you for sending in your query. The common causes of pain and blood in the urine are infections or stones anywhere in the urinary tract. It could also be due to a structural problem. Comparatively rare causes are diseases of the kidney like IgA Nephropathy. I would recommend the following tests: 1) Urine analysis and urine culture to look for infection. 2) Blood tests: CBC, urea, creatinine 3)An Ultrasound or a CT Scan of the kidneys ureter and bladder (KUB). These will pick up any stones or structural problems. The results of these tests will help us in making the right diagnosis. Meanwhile drink plenty of fluids and try some simple analgesics for the pain. You should consult a urologist or a nephrologist for definitive cure of your problem. I hope this was helpful Feel free to contact me if you have any further questions. Regards Dr Aditya Bhabhe
