I have all the symptoms of a kidney but i haven't seen any blood in my urine. Could it be something else or can I have a kidney stone still?

Still could be stone: The most common symptom of a kidney stone is pain, often coming in waves ("colicky"). Sometimes pain or burning or difficulty urinating, and as you note, blood in the urine. However, even if not seen, you can still have blood called microscopic, which is detected by checking the urine. If you have fever, the problem could be more serious as infection may be present. ...Read more

If i had hematuria due to kidney stone symptoms, how long after i feel a bit better should I recheck my urine to see if hematuria is gone? Thank you.

Difficult Question: If you have any remaining sludge or irritation the blood not seen by the human eye that shows on a dip test can stick around for a while and be normal. If a person needed a urologist to use a tool to grab the stone or a stent place the same is true then too. If you don't see blood and are pain free and following the diet your dr gave you you are ok until follow up with your doc. ...Read more

May still be a UTI: Usually, pain on urination (dysuria) is a symptom of a UTI from which the offending bacteria can be grown from the urine. Less commonly dysuria can occur from the irritation of passing a kidney stone alone (i.e. Not a uti). In other situations, the laboratory can't isolate the microbe because it's too difficult to grow in culture (e.g. Chlamydia)- in that case, you may still actually have a uti. ...Read more
