Anyone here has microscopic hematuria?

Hello, I haven't been diagnosed with IC but I get frequent UTIs since I was 21, I am now 36, Sometimes I have microscopic hematuria with no infection. certain foods make my bladder burn. I have seen a couple of urologists in the past and I have had tests, cytospocy, cat scan with contrast of the kidneys, etc. Tests don't show anything. Last year I had an urinalysis and showed no blood but the other day my bladder felt funny and went to the doctor and here I had microscopic blood in my urine with no infection. I feel it burns a little too. Doctors in the past have given me a diet to follow and that's it.

Anyone here with IC has microscopic hematuria, is that normal? I was taking lots of ibuprofen (Advil) and amoxicilin for an ear infection prior to that and I was wondering if the Advil irritated by bladder?

Any input is greatly appreciated!

I'm not diagnosed with IC as of yet, but suspect I might have it after 7 months of constant bladder pain and frequent urination with on and off UTIs. I have microscopic haematuria as well, my doctor thinks it's related to a UTI. I wouldn't stress! Although any blood in urine is abnormal, most cases it's due to a UTI.
