A yr ago they found microscopic blood in the urine and i had decreased urine output.went thru scans,nuclear scans and blood work,kidney biopsy was done this year.they've diagnosed me with cryoglobulinemia.i've to use a chemo drug and prednisone.this is a rare disease common among people of european descent,which i'm not.also if you've hepatitus c,which i've been tested for.had a blood tranf.36 yrs ago and i'm told it can go undetected for years.what they thought was fibromyalgia has been discovered to be this disease.i also have had raynauds dis. Since i was a young child.i've not started the treatment yet,looking to find anyone with this disease and what they can tell me about it or what has happened to them.
