Flank and bladder pain- blood in urine

I’ve been having a dull ache in my right kidney, constant for 3 weeks, and some bladder pain on and off. All urine cultures are negative. The last test showed trace blood in urine..
Any thoughts on what this could be?

Keep working with your doctor.  While it is rare, you could have a negative urine culture but STILL have a UTI. Lot of times a doctor will treat you 'as if' and give you antibiotics to see if it clears up. Believe it or not, standard midstream urine cultures miss 90% of bacteria.  Guessing you really do have a uti.
