I have a history with kidney stones and infection's. I was told that I have water around my kidney's.
The problem is, when I get a kidney infection I look like I'm 6 months pregant. I've asked my Dr. about this. He has no answear why I look like I'm pregant it's very fusterating. Not knowing why.
My lower-mid back feel's like it's burning, sharp pains, don't matter what I do I cant get comfortable. I look like I'm pregant. I'm tired all the time, there's been times when I feel totaly drian like I'm going to pass out. (I did at one time. my BP was very low) if this sounds familiar, and you have any ideas to what might be going on or can head me in the right direction that will be much appericated.

  • I suggest that you make an appointment to see a Nephrologist (Kidney Doctor) as soon as you can. Most primary physicians are not familiar with a particular specialty. I know by experience. My husband lost his kidney because a primary physician diagnosed his urinary bleeding saying it was an infection and treated him with antibiotics. He went to see a Nephrologist and found out that he had a tumor on his kidney and it had to be removed.
