I am 36 yr old female. I have had kidney problems since I was 9 yrs. old. Since my 20's I have had chronic kidney pain. Mostly on the right side but now it is painfull on both. In the last two years it has gotten worse. I have lost around 40 to 50 pounds as I can not keep much down. When I am in pain I get sick to my stomache. So Doctors have been testing me for stomache problems. All test have came up negative. I have told them time and again it is my kidneys. Finally they did an ultrasound on them and the left is twice the size of the other. I get kidney stones every 3 to 6 months. I have contstant flank pain, I urinate only 3 to 4 times a day and I am so tired and weak I cant take it anymore. I dont know what else to do. One doctor even told me it was all in my head and I should see a psycologist. I am just so fed up with it and tired of being sick. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
