:( poor concentration, poor memory, depression, tiredness. With LOW blood pressure. I have very dilute urine and very frequent urination including a few times per night. I drink a lot of water and take a lot of food supplements like eve. primrose oil and selenium ACE. I've stopped smoking but have smoking damaged lungs. I have low back pain, around the hips. I've recently had near leg cramps at night and daily rheumatism. I am a long term IBS sufferer and have recently found the best diet for it, avoiding allergenic foods.
I went to the GP about my rheumatism. I have pins and needles and near-cramps at night. Slightly sore knees and ankles. I'm 42 years old and going to have quite early menopause I believe. My periods are irregular as they always have been, and lighter than they used to be. I worry that period isn't going to start and I'm going to be in a long drawn out state for a week before it begins but if I relax and have reflexology or similar, it will start, tho' a bit hesitantly.
GP just sent me for blood tests in order to get initial assessment.
People keep commenting on my tan and I have hardly seen the sun. I think it's pigmentation from an adrenal gland problem. I wonder if I caught a urinary tract infection from a sexual partner I had 2 years ago and if it's been working it's way subtley into my kidneys ever since then? I have cloudy urine and it has white blood cells in it according to a test. I don't have blood in the urine. I never had cystitis but I had pain on passing water fairly often. Not so bad that I got very worried. However, I might have had a urinary tract infection all this time. I haven't been to the GP for over two years.
This morning I had blood tests for everything under the sun. We'll see if I'm diabetic or if I've got parathyroid disease or if I've got a urinary tract or kidney infection. I can't wait to find out. I get the results in two weeks time. I feel OK in the morning, although I only manage 5 or 6 hours sleep, and I'm relatively OK in the day. I get a lot done but with silly mistakes and poor concentration. Then in the evening I feel weak and like I could almost collapse and I am a bit worried that I'm going to get really ill and the worst will be true. However, I hope that I'm not that ill. If I've had a kidney infection for a really long time, then what is the worst that could be, and what is the result of this thing called "kidney damage"? I don't mean the worst possible ever, I mean the worst possible that could be true given my symptoms as outlined above? Anybody out there got a similar experience or know what I might have?
