Is this a Kidney Issue?

I am hoping that someone answers this questions as I've posted in the past and have received no answers for my other questions.


In the past six months I've started developing some weakness in my legs. It is worse first thing in the morning but can happen anytime throughout the day. I've also started getting up during the night again to pee. It was bad about a year ago but got better once I began various medications. There is also some associated back pain throughout the day. I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis about 10 years ago but this is higher and only occurs when I'm in bed or sit down for long periods, e.g. sleeping at night.


I've also started feeling nausea during the day and along with this leg weakness I wonder if it is related to my stage two kidney disease.


Any suggestions would be helpful.
