I really do not have so answers to you in this post, except to say that red blood in urine sounds like dangersous to me, and would immediately seek medical advice. It would scare me if I was in your place.
Others who are more informed than I am will surely respond to your post.

Hi Peace - I would seek some medical attn and testing. Could just be a bladder infection - but frank blood in the urine is not something to ignore - even without other obvious symptoms.....especially w/ a dx of Lupus. Take care and let us know...Lucy
My kidney issues showed up as lots of fluid retention, large amounts of protein in my urine and some microscopic blood. I did not have a fever or any pain at all. Kidney involvement is painless so.... with your blood, fever, and pain I would guess it is some sort of kidney or bladder infection. I don't know, but I would definitely have a doctor check it out. Good luck,
I didn't know that there is no pain when one has kidney problems due to Lupus. this is a very good thing to know.
Thank you for sharing this
