  • Two years ago, I had two episodes of pink/red (more red), urine. The second time I went to my GP who did a urine test and told me I had a bladder infection and put me on antibiotics. A week later, I was awaken with extreme pain in my left lower back and vomiting. A trip to the ER showed I actually had a kidney stone. The kidney stone had apparently been moving around enough to cause some bleeding before the pain became noticeable. It was a total surprise to me, the last diagnosis I expected to hear. No one in my family had ever had one and I at age 53 (female) had never had a bladder infection.I would suggest you visit a doctor. Any unusual sign of bleeding, I would think, could be a serious matter or develop into one, and should not to be ignored or postponed.
