Doctor :   Hello
Doctor :   i am Dr xxx here
Doctor :   tell me your query
User :   Hello my name is XXXXXXXX Blach on wednesday I notice blood in my urine, this got worse during the day to the point that on Wednesday night I booked to the A and E where they kept me in for a day to do tests ... the blood was so bad at one point that it seemed I was urinating just blood. Then it seemed to subside and started to run clear again with just a small pink hue. They did urine test which was OK and they did Ultrasound check and apparently that was clear too. Since the urine was then looking clearer they told me to go home and they would contact me agian problem is that about an hour ago I started to urinate two large clots of blood .. I am deeply worried!
