I am a 54 yr. old female who has been diagnosed with "chronic microscopic hematuria" for the past 25+ years. I have had full workups, including invasive and non-invasive tests, by urologists without any cause or diagnosis being discovered. I've also suffered from debilitating fatigue and "brainfog" plus abnormal ANA blood test results for almost as long, with diagnoses including fibromyalgia and ACTS (Atypical Connective Tissue Disease Syndrome). I've taken thyroid replacement meds since age 21 for Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.
In addition to the fatigue, I experience mild flu-like symptoms much of the time, and now my urine is appearing orange. I am unable to connect this change to any of the easily observed causes such as medications, foods, etc., and am reluctant to have yet more testing done since testing has never revealed a true diagnosis in the first place.
