Detailed Answer:
Hello ma'am and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. I am sure you must have knowledge about how a bladder infection presents which is why you are almost sure about not having one, but I would although like you to know that a bladder infection can at times present different and at times even without most of the symptoms, so only a urine analysis would help to confirm ruling it out.

But on the other hand, the other most likely cause could be a stone in your renal tract, which can cause obstruction of the flow of urine, resulting in pain and discomfort and even more often than not, blood in the urine. I would however urge you to get the following investigations conducted which will help to find the cause for your symptoms ma'am:

+Urine analysis
+Urine culture and sensitivity examination
+Ultrasound of your abdomen and pelvis
+Ultrasound KUB (kidney, ureter and bladder)

These investigations should more than suffice to find the cause for your trouble ma'am. I hope you find my response both helpful and informative. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I am always here to help.

Best wishes.
