I am 65 years old with chronic prostatitis (since 1988) and a 5mm unobstructed kidney stone. I have been taking 2 to 4 extra strength excedrin long term for pain relief not only for the prostatitis but for knee arthritis as well. I have had gross hematuria off and on over the last 5 years, but mostly only a trace +1 showing up on the urine dip stick test. The ct that I had showed only the kidney stone and a mildly enlarged prostate. The cysto that I had also showed normal. I do get some pain from time to time from the kidney area housing the stone. How much could the excedrin be contributing to the urine blood and what is the proper way to stop the excedrin? Thank you.
