History of kidney stones. Have back pain. Urine has protein and blood. Done ultrasound. Any suggestions?

Hello, I am a 26 year old woman writing from France (although I am American) with a past history of kidney stones . About 10 days ago I started having back pain in the left mid back region and within this period I went to the hospital here in Paris, where they examened my urine and found traces of protein and blood. They sent me to get an ultrasound , the doctor said he didn t see any stones, but eventually a sand like substance. He told me to go see a general practitioner but I m actually more concerned now than before. I feel like I m going to spend a lot of money and be sent around in a circle. Any suggestions?

Hi thanks for your question.
Your having back pain and your urine examination reveals slight proteinurea and blood along with concreations (what they mentioned as sand).Small concreations can cause haematuria(blood in urine) .Traces of proteins are normal in urine.Take plenty of water to clear these concreations and consult a physion may prescribe you medicine for your back pain and haematuria.
Hope this answers your question.
