I'm 22, And I've been suffering with left Kidney pain for almost 3 years.I get frequent UTI's, I've had Pyelonephritis a couple of times, blood & protein in my urine, fevers, urine retention so bad, I had to be hospitalised to have catheter put in. Everyday, I'm just so tired, I don't seem to have any energy. Within in 30 minutes to an hour of waking up in the morning, I feel so drained, like I've had no sleep at all. I've had various tests, from ultrasound scans, Urodynamics, MCUG, 2x Cystoscopies and Blood tests etc, and came back negative. Apart fromUltrasound scan showed I have one Kidney bigger than the other, this was done back in 2006/beginning of 2007, so not sure what it is now, Dr didn't say if this was a normal thing or not. I assume my Kidney's are functioning properly, as I've not been told otherwise. Urine tests almost always shows up that I have +2 or +3 of protein in urine and +2 or +3 of blood in urine and my urine's pH is 7.5 or sometime its been 9.0 (again, I don't know if this is normal or not.) I have high blood pressure: lowest reading: 143/83 - Highest reading: 163/94. My symptoms are as follows:Sharp, stabbing, crampy pain in left Kidney, can radiate towards front of abdomen & navel. Fatigue, nausea, frequent headaches, I have anaemia, I sometimes have swollen ankles & a little puffiness around the eyes in the morning. Decreased urination, when I pass urine, I feel pain in the Kidney. Can anyone offer any advice? I don't know what to do! My GP & Urologist don't seem to know what to do either. I'm really concerned, because I don't know what the ***l is wrong with me!Thanks for reading.
