Brief Answer:
Blood in urine isn't normal.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX and welcome to HCM.
As an Urologist, let me advise you, that blood in urine is not normal.
We need to know where the blood is coming from, and cause for it.
You've done the right step in stopping Aspirin, as the bleeding won't stop soon.
You need to get tested urgently by an Urologist, and also some tests to be done.
1. Urine routine and culture.
2. blood routine, creatinine,sugar,BT,CT.PT,platelets,SGPT, and PSA.
3. Ultrasound scan of abdomen and pelvis.
4. TRUS (trans rectal ultrasound scan).
According to the reports, further treatment will be advised.
If you send me the reports along with doctor's examination finding, i can give you an expert opinion.
Wish you well.

Good afternoon I was told back in Aug 2013 that I have Factor 5 Leiden thrombophilia. The doctor put me on Xarelto for 6 months now and has taken me off and to start using aspirin again. The doctor states that they do not like to keep on medication no longer then 6 months. But I m still on Hydrochlothiazide 25 mg every other day and my ankles are still swollen. I asked the doctor how will I know if I get the blood clots again and his response was I will know. Should I find a hematology & oncology? This scares me!

I m a 47 female with a history of anxiety. However, I am a firm believer that my anxiety is a reaction from the pain I expierience and not the other way around. I went to my Cardiologist last December and he performed, Echo, EKG, Blood Test, Ultrasound, and even checked my Carotid Artieries (for stroke)... All negative Today I have been expieriencing the following discomfort: pain in and around the collarbone (both sides), pain in and around both shoulderblades, tightness in front of upper chest, pain under my chin. Any suggestions? I also take an aspirin every morning... is that more harmful than helpful?
