Abdominal ultrasound

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Blood in the urine microscopically indicates either presence of stones or infection.

Sometimes infection in upper parts of the Urinary tract can present with no fever as it could be a chronic one.

I recommend you to get an Ultrasound scan of the abdomen and pelvis to rule out the above conditions.

Meanwhile you can take antispasmodic and NSAID combination pain killer or the problem.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.

Regards,
