Severe kidney Pain still
dselin68 posted:
it's been 4 months since my last post about my kidney biopsey. i have been in the hospital with 4 times in the last 3 months with massive migraines and severe left kidney pain. I am still having severe left kidney pain, and blood in my urine. I was told by my Kidney doctor that this is a chronic condition, and there is nothing that can be done, because they are not sure what causes it, and there is no cure. Just pain medication. My kidney specialist said i no longer need to see her, because of this. My latest blood test showed my AST at 7, and my ALT at 6. My BUN/Creatinine level at 8. My eGFr was at 46, which has gone down, last three were 60, 58, 55, and now 46. I'm being told this is normal. I'm very confused. I believe my kidney biopsey results, and my last bloodwork, show I have a real i crazy for thinking this?
