Blood in Urine

I had been traveling for work and had gotten a bad cold. My body was run down and I had chills, but kept pushing myself. I was sick with a cold on and off again for 3 weeks. I started feeling bad again and had bronchitis. I also began peeing blood, it was dark cola colored. I got medication from the doctor and after around 2 weeks my urine still had noticeable blood in it, but it was not red and not cola colored. It took around 4 months for the urine to get back to normal, with no blood at all. The other symptoms I had were ache in my penis and at the same time my ejaculations were not as powerful and my semen volume was about half of what it had been. All this happened around the same time. The semen volume is close to normal, but my ejaculations are not as powerful and my semen just dribbles out. I had all the test from the urologist and the kidney doctor and nothing was conclusive. The urologist, and I saw a few of them after the tests said it could have been a burst blood vessel or prostatitis and the kidney doctor thought it could be IGA nephropathy, but none of them were certain. All tests are normal, no protein in urine, no bacteria in urine. My symptoms were far closer to those of prostatitis, but I have never had a diagnosis that was resolute. Most of the doctors don't listen once they find out it is not cancer or anything life threatening they seem to lose interest in helping me. I still wonder what it was that I had wrong with me. Any help would be most appreciated.
