I was wondering who here has kidney problems and how they started and when they knew it was time to seek medical input.
I have pain on my left side in back under my ribs. I have nausea for days now and just over all feel very run down. My BP last I looked was 144/98. I also have a head ache that comes and goes.
I looked up the Kidney section here and yes it sounds like it could be but when I read anything about anything lately, it sounds like me.
If Life hands you lemons, make lemonade.
Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Limited scleroderma, Dermatomyositis. Diastolic Dysfunction, dysphagia, Fibro, restless leg. Lupus is a maybe.

I don't have kidney problems myself, but given your symptoms and raised blood pressure reading (is it usually lower than that ?) I would seek medical advice. It may well be that you just have some virus or even UTI, but I feel it is better to be safe than sorry.
Hope you are feeling better soon.

I agree with Lizzy, you she see a Dr. I know that's the last thing you probably want to do is head back there, but you really do need more safe than sorry.
Let us know what they say..
Hope you feel better soon!
